Additionally it contains a record of some of the presentations given on the Collection.It also keeps track, for posterity, of the “Lindemann Collection” results during the short time it was shown before the untimely death of its owner, Ian Bett. The “Lindemann Collection” Pence and Cents and Large Queen acquisitions were instrumental in rounding out those exhibits in The Brigham Collection. These purchases as well as the Jansen Collection of Large Queens, another important collection in building the Large Queen exhibit, have been listed.The headers to the table are self-explanatory. A listing of the abbreviations used is found at the bottom of the table.
