I found two chopmarks on a US $20 bill. The top one is cat looking back. I'm not sure what the other one is.
Thoughts, anyone? I don't think I've seen this one before. -Editor

Early Munzen und Medaillen Listes
Numismatic literature dealer Douglas Saville of Reading, England writes:
In the last E-Sylum you had a piece about the Cahn family. I have a few of the early Munzen und Medaillen Listes… including the first one, LISTE 1. Basel, Januar 1942. duplicated
typescript, A4 format, 8 pages. In it are listed for sale at fixed prices some 241 items including Greek, Roman, French gold, Holy Roman Empire gold, Swiss coins, medals, and the final page - the
“Bargain Page” - offers some 80 items priced from 50 Swiss cents up to 47 Swiss francs…..! It is part of a small collection of about 20 similar early M & M Listes that I have for sale.
Thank you. Scarce item! -Editor
