Betty, You are so nice to respond.  I am going to have to call him and get
him to send me a photo of it.  I hope he found a treasure too....that would
be great.  He is a grown man and loves to collect things....he says I
dragged him around antique shops so much while he was growing up, that it's
all my fault!
I really appreciate the info on the books too.  It is a great help.  Thanks
so much...and I'll let you  know what we find out!    Ann
