THOMAS ELDER SALE #280 CATALOG SOUGHT

W. David Perkins writes: "Does anyone have a copy of the April 1-3,
1937 Thomas Elder Sale #280 catalog?  The ANA Library does not have
a copy of this sale.

I am looking for information on a few lots that I acquired: for
example Lots 2042 & 2052.  The lots that I am interested in are
medals and / or So-Called Dollars.  These may have been group lots.
I'm also interested to learn if there was any "descriptive"
introduction to this sale or these items.  I can be reached via
e-mail at wdperki@attglobal.net.

For those who are interested, one of these items is the rare H&K
125 "Battle of Groton Heights Centennial  1881" Medal, but stuck
in copper (or bronze) and on a thick planchet, not in White Metal
as listed in the Hibler & Kappen book.

Another item is H&K 153, the rare "General Stark-Colonel Warner
Dollar" in White Metal.  Two items "not in H&K" are a Yorktown,
VA Centennial Medal of October 19, 1881 struck in white metal and
a neat looking 1903 City of Bridgeport "Old Home Week" medal.  I
have a few other items (somewhere) from this sale. Thanks."
