The E-Sylum: Volume 4, Number 8, February 18, 2001, Article 4


In a note subscribers to the Colonial Newsletter, Jim Spilman writes:

"We have just posted another group of experimental images on the University of Notre Dame numismatic website. These are the Connecticut specimens from the famous EAC Auction Sale of 15 February 1975.

These images include Lots # 001 through #553 and - with one minor exception - were all photographed from the original paste-up plates made to illustrate the catalog and which were loaned to The Colonial Newsletter Foundation by Mrs. Herb Melnick. All images are 500 ppi resolution, or greater.

At the time the photographs were made - one of the plates was missing which included Lots 277 - 297. These lots ARE included in our archive but the images were obtained from the Richard Picker Photofiles at CNLF. Dick was presented with the extra set of the original photographic prints by Herb Melnick shortly after the sale was over and these prints were donated to CNLF by Mrs. Richard Picker following Dick's death. This Picker image set consists of a long 2x2 coin box filled with 553 2x2 envelopes. Each envelope contains the obverse and reverse print for the particular lot - they are stored in exactly the same manner as coins - but the envelopes contain photographic prints rather that coins. ...

We are in the process of breaking up some of the image groups into smaller groups. We have discovered that a few of the larger files are causing download difficulty with some browser configurations and we hope that this will solve those problems. To access the archive click on:
