Re: "Other" LBH TDs?

Are you possibly confusing Dixie with SRS?

AFAIK, Dixie produced just one book (1976?) with the numbers of their accumulation (I'll not call it a collection) along with some bad info in the front end. There were only 1 or 2 serials of interest to me and they are in my database. SRS produced four s/n books in the 80s/90s (well five, since there are two versions of number 4).

History has proven that one of the biggest mistakes of my life was not buying multiple copies when they came out. They now trade at 10X initial cost, and that is when you can find them!

My compilation - from all sources, including numbers *ONLY, from SRS - of about 1250 numbers will be in my new book.

*I did not photocopy or otherwise reproduce any of the SRS copyrighted material from the four books that I purchased from Frank Mallory, thus I am NOT providing any of their attributional data as regarding dates and usages, etc. I simply transcribed, one-by-one, the "M1873C" numbers themselves. If this leads to "trouble" (I do NOT believe simple numbers can be copyrighted) I will have to shorten the list but it will not be a total disaster, since many of the numbers are listed in other reference sources - only a small portion are unique to the SRS lists.
