G. D. LOPEZ SOUGHT
David Gladfelter writes: "A question for our e-readers: Does
anyone recognize the name G. D. Lopez, presumably a
collector active in the 1930s?
His/her name is not among Pete Smith's 1400 nor Martin
Gengerke's 5600. It does not appear in any of the ANA
membership lists from 1944-1964 nor in the New York City
and State sections of those from 1930-40 (I didn't check the
other geographical areas). It does not appear in the ANS
membership list included within the 1930 ANA membership
I have Stack's "housebound" set of catalogs for the year 1940.
On the spine someone has written: "This book contains the
G. D. Lopez collection -- see June 4-5, 1940 sale." The main
content of that sale was a set of gold coins of the world. The
consignor is not identified by initials, although other consignors
are, none with initials G.D.L."
