"Among the anchors can also be found five consignors whose collections were so large that we are selling Part II in Baltimore. We thank the following for their consigned Collections: Gil Clark; John Dabbert (Part II); V.A. Everest; Frank O. Fredericks (Part II); Robert Fry; Ketring Family; Brian Loncar (Part II); Mark Mauer; McCormick Ranch; James L. Moore; I.S.
