AN AUCTION LOT TO DYE FOR 

   Former NBS President Michael J. Sullivan chimes in about 
   the Dye's Counterfeit Detector discussed in recent issues 
   of The E-Sylum.  He writes: "Regarding the Dye item sold 
   on E-Bay for which I was the underbidder, the reckless 
   bidding relates to the absolute rarity of the item.  The only 
   source listed in OCLC for the item is the Western Reserve 
   Historical Society.  I contacted the WRHS and they are 
   unable to locate it; sometimes impounded items just die and 
   get buried! 

   Despite being produced in Cincinnati, no local library nor 
   historical society owns a copy despite two Ormsby's being 
   in town!  Go Figure!   Well, to make it real simple - I was 
   attempting to take it back home to Cincinnati.  In reality, 
   the item is worth $200 or so."
