QUERY: BROWN & DUNN GRADING GUIDE ILLUSTRATIONS

David Lange writes: "Some years ago I was digging around
the American Numismatic Society library when I came across
a beginner's guide to coin collecting published in 1953.
It included the familiar line drawings seen in the Brown &
Dunn grading book, as well as the first two editions of the
ANA grading guide. I thought this was quite remarkable at
the time, since I'd never seen any mention of this book,
and I'd always assumed that the line drawings were created
a few years later specifically for the B & D book.

"Unfortunately, as I was researching something unrelated,
I didn't take a moment to write down the name of the book
or its author. I'm also a long way from New York these days,
without any immediate prospect of going there to check it
out. Does anyone else know of this book?"
