MORE ON COL. E. H. R. GREEN 

   Bill Burd writes: "Regarding W. D. Perkins remarks about 
   Green,  there are no pictures in "The Day they Shook the 
   Plum Tree".  There is a nice photo of Green between page 
   166 & 167 in  "The Witch of Wall Street" dated 1935, 
   copyright 1930, Doubleday.  The same photo shows up in 
   an article on the 1913 Liberty Nickel in "Coinage" July 
   1966, page 42.  This article is referring to the nickel 
   owned by McDermott and sold in a Kelly auction to the Bebees. 
   I have an auction catalog of the sale autographed by James Kelly, 
   Mrs. McDermott, and the Bebee's.  This coin is now at the 
   ANA." 

   George M. Vanca  of Santa Clarita, CA writes: "I just received 
   the latest E-Sylum and as always, enjoy it.  Thank you. 

   Concerning W. David Perkins' comments about research he 
   has done on Col. Green, and his mention of the first picture 
   he has seen of him in ten years of  study - you might let him 
   know that there are a number of pictures of Col. Green in 
   various books on stamps and stamp collectors. 

   As we know, Col. Green was a prolific collector of many 
   things, but in  addition to coins, he had a tremendous love 
   (and healthy budget) for  stamps (inverted Jenny, etc.). 

   I have seen numerous pictures of Col. Green sitting inside 
   his carriage meeting with various New York dealers to 
   purchase stamps. There are usually some interesting stories 
   behind the man that enhance his colorful image. 

   "The World's Greatest Stamp Collectors" by Stanley M. 
   Bierman, MD, has a chapter (and picture) on Green. 
   "Fun and Profit in Stamp Collecting" by Herman Herst Jr., 
   supplies additional information on him. 

   Perhaps by examining some of these books, Mr. Perkins 
   might acquire some helpful information about Col. Green 
   for his research."
