BASS COLLECTION PHOTOGRAPHY COMPLETED 

   From a February 8th Press Release from the American 
   Numismatic Association: "Digital photographs now document 
   the more than 500 items that comprise the Harry W. Bass Jr. 
   Core Collection at the American Numismatic Association 
   (ANA) Money Museum. 

   Bass, an enshrinee in the ANA Numismatic Hall of Fame 
   who died in 1998, assembled the most comprehensive 
   collection of America's gold coins, in addition to patterns and 
   large-sized paper money.  Many of the finest specimens from 
   that collection are now on long-term loan to the ANA Money 
   Museum from the Harry W. Bass Jr. Research Foundation. 

   "Work is progressing nicely on mounting an exhibit of this 
   magnificent collection," says Curator Robert W. Hoge. "The 
   wonderful photography was performed by Douglas Plasencia 
   of Bowers and Merena Galleries. He captured more than 
   1,000 images with the same state-of-the-art, high-resolution 
   digital equipment he used to shoot the photographs for the 
   firm's 1999 and 2000 Bass auction catalogs." (Photographs 
   of the Bass Core Collection will be available for detailed 
   study on the Bass web site - www.hbrf.org - and in the 
   ANA Museum's exhibit area.) 

   Hoge adds that noted author and auctioneer Q. David 
   Bowers currently is working on a sylloge of the Bass 
   Collection and a comprehensive biography of its founder."
