SMITHSONIAN COLLECTION DUPLICATE POLICIES

Alan Weinberg writes: "With respect to the Smithsonian
auctioning off duplicates: I have a two-page single-spaced
letter from the then Secretary of the Smithsonian detailing
the Numismatic Division's policy on "duplicates".  He states
that the SI required THREE of every coin they owned to show
obverse, reverse and to loan out the 3rd to other institutions
for exhibit. My interpretation: they owned at the time 3 1927-D
$20's and would have to own at least two to exhibit the
prolific reverse! Ridiculous."
