Regarding George Fitzgerald, Pete Smith writes:
I would like to react to the comment that George always wore a baseball-style cap. I recall one of those caps had "PING" across the front. Perhaps some of those baseball caps were actually golf caps.

The Kolbe/Fanning sale was held June 2 and only 11 days later (of which two were Sundays)
I received in the mail the hardbound catalog w/PRL bound in. This has got to be a numismatic record.
San Francisco Mint Gold Ledger Books
Len also notes:
Following up on the discussion about Mint ledgers which appeared on ebay a few weeks back, some more have come to light.
Len included a link to a June 30 Holabird-Kagin Americana sale. Below is the lot description.
Lot of 2. These ledgers show ingot submissions from the western states. Entries include deposits from Alaska, Colorado, Nevada, and California. Of particular interest are the California submissions from the Yellow Aster Mining Company. Both books show Deposits of Gold Bullion (printed at the top of each page) written in manuscript by the clerk at the San Francisco Mint. Weigh Clerk's Book of Deposits of Bullion "#19" dates June 1, 1915 to February 19, 1916. Book 2 "#20" dates February 21, 1916 to January 31, 1917. Book 1 has slight wear including 6 worm holes through the bottom of the sheets and boards. Book 2 has additional worm holes through the boards and lower portions of the ledger sheets. Both are bound in white covers and were bound by the U.S. Government Bindery. Spines are tight and the sheets are legible and clean otherwise. Both 13" x 18".
