EAC 1975 PHOTOS ONLINE 

   In a note subscribers to the Colonial Newsletter,  Jim Spilman 
   writes: "We have just posted another group of experimental 
   images on the University of Notre Dame numismatic website. 
   These are the Connecticut specimens from the famous EAC 
   Auction Sale of 15 February 1975 

   These images include Lots # 001 through #553 and - with 
   one minor exception - were all photographed from the 
   original paste-up plates made to illustrate the catalog and 
   which were loaned to The Colonial Newsletter Foundation 
   by Mrs. Herb Melnick.  All images are 500 ppi resolution, 
   or greater. 

   At the time the photographs were made - one of the plates 
   was missing which included Lots 277 - 297. These lots ARE 
   included in our archive but the images were obtained from the 
   Richard Picker Photofiles at CNLF.  Dick was presented with 
   the extra set of the original photographic prints  by Herb 
   Melnick shortly after the sale was over and these prints were 
   donated to CNLF by Mrs. Richard Picker following Dick's 
   death.  This Picker image set consists of a long 2x2 coin box 
   filled with 553 2x2 envelopes.  Each envelope contains the 
   obverse and reverse print for the particular lot - they are stored 
   in exactly the same manner as coins - but the envelopes contain 
   photographic prints rather that coins. ... 

   We are in the process of breaking up some of the image groups 
   into smaller groups.  We have discovered that a few of the 
   larger files are causing download difficulty with some browser 
   configurations and we hope that this will solve those problems.
