  -This set is not one of those reportedly sent to Representative Kelley for distribution to other members of Congress.  Adams-Woodin noted that 100 sets of the One Cent, Three Cent, and five Cent patterns were made for distribution to legislators, but do not describe the contents of these sets.  Judd repeats the Adam-Woodin statement without further elaboration.  Since there were two different reverse designs made for these patterns, we do not know whether each of the Congressional sets contained three or six coins.  It is mot likely, however, that only three pieces were included in each.  Miss Trotter's set offered here was presented by Director Linderman.  Obviously, Miss Trotter could not have been a member of Congress, and the wording of the presentation card precludes her set having been a 'handed down' Congressional one.
   -Emily Trotter was most likely the Daughter of Newbold Hugh Trotter (1827-1898), a fashionable Philadelphia landscape painter who was born in and lived his entire life in that city.  He exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academy annually from 1858 on, was a member of that institution as well as of several other art societies in the city, and specialized in nature and Western genre subjects.
