Lots 44 and 45 in the upcoming Kolbe & Fanning sale of the second part of the Stack Family Library of numismatic literature (closing June 3) consist of two photographs (one set in each lot) depicting Charles Barber's engraving tools. The well-executed photographs show the very tools with which Barber did his engraving work for the U.S. Mint, and depict the tools at or about their actual size. These tools were also owned by the Stack Family and were donated along with the originals of the Barber Papers to the Smithsonian.
