ELDER JOHN GROVER KELLOGG SALE INFORMATION SOUGHT

Brian Koller writes: "I am a Heritage cataloger researching a
consigned Gem proof 1852/1 $20 Humbert for the 2007 FUN auction.
John J. Ford, Jr. apparently had Superior catalog the piece in two
sales (10/1990 and 10/1992) as originating from the John Grover
Kellogg estate, appearing in a Thomas L. Elder auction of 10/27-28/1916,
lot 742. This auction is described by John W. Adams as "Gem territorial
gold from the Kellogg collection." In its Ford auction appearance
(Stack's, 5/2004, lot 363), the cataloger didn't reference the
Kellogg-Elder pedigree.

My question is, is lot 742 plated in the 10/27/1916 Elder catalog?
And if it is, does it match the images for the piece I am researching?
Any help your readers can give would be appreciated. The images are
found at: Images
