PLATED MONTAYNE SALE CATALOG SOUGHT

Regarding last week's mention of the Washington skull & crossbones
funeral medal, Saul Teichman writes: "Does anyone have a plated
Montayne catalog (Sampson, 4/1881)? I have been trying to figure
out if the Norweb gold skull & crossbones medal really is the
Bushnell piece or not.

It is relatively easy to plate match the Garrett Gold Urn medal to
the Bushnell sale even with reprint plates, thus it is likely he
also bought his skull & crossbones there as well.

The Montayne piece was not graded but did sell for $25, $5 more
than the Bushnell piece. Grade wise, the Bushnell description seems
to match the Norweb piece but I would like to verify the sources
of these two."
