Since I'm now focusing on auction listings that predate the 1990 Christie's sale, I thought I'd start a new topic to help those who want to focus on the pre-Christie's material.

Since I know Bernie is particularly interested in NY notes, I'll post some data I run across in that area. If anyone else has other special requests, I'll post that too.

Today I scanned in NASCA/Smythe sale 75 (11/03/1988), and found the following lots of NY notes:
