Does anyone have pictures of Lester Merkin, S.H. Chapman or Dr. Limpert? I need them for an exhibit at the Memphis Paper Money show. It's a fractional currency exhibit titled "Great Notes from Great Collections/Sales." I hope to have pictures of most of the past owners of notes that I have along with the actual auction descriptions.
I've located two of the three. There is a nice line drawing of Samuel H. Chapman on p90 of United States Numismatic Literature, Volume I
by John W. Adams (1982). Does anyone have a portrait photo?
As for Merkin, there are several nice photos in Mark Van Winkle's An Interview with Lester Merkin
in the Spring 1989 issue of Legacy
magazine from Heritage.
But Limpert? Can anyone help? Limpert's book, United States Paper Money Old Series, 1861-1923
, was published in 1948. Dr. Frank A. Limpert lived in Royal Oak, Michigan; perhaps some local Michigan coin publications would have a photo of him.
