Finally fixed all the multiframe interlink navigation bugs...I think. If one finds a dead or misdirected link, please email me. Added Positions 6R2, 59R2, 67R2 and 68L2 to the Plate 2 section.

December 17th, 2002
Added Positions 97L3 and Pos 1L1E thanks to the help of Dick Celler and Mark Rogers. Started the Floobydust section to archive. The Floobydust section is the area that the "unable to plate at this moment." stuff is to go. I will be saving these items for a rainy day or until I get my hands on more modern research material. In the mean time, feel free to try and plate the images in this section. I will also try to provide all the info I know about the "unplatable ones" and will stick arrows and notes to anything that appears important. Also corrected a lot of text errors and missing links.

November 21st, 2002
Added Positions 48R1L, 49R1L, Positions 11,12 type II, 13R1E type IIIa to archive.

November 8th, 2002
Added Positions 4 to12 of the Gov't Reprint of 1875. On these pages that have no notation of plating marks in the plating schematic, the JPEG image size is increased to 600 pixels until a verification of plating marks can be made. Perhaps a collector who has some Scott 40's can verify the miscellaneous marks against these images. I am currently working on plating more of some Plate 1 Early subjects. Also added this News and Progress page.

November 1st, 2002
Added Plate 1 Late and Revised Plate 1 Early subjects.
