Would you consider donating it to the Dodge Brothers Club? I am chairman of the Historical Research Committee and I know we don't have one in our literature collection. It would be a good addition to our collection. We are a 501-c-3 and I will make sure you get a tax document, you add the value. contact me by PM. Doug

Hi Doug ... I would like to consider doing that but I actually live in a suburb of Toronto Canada.   Any Tax Receipt is not of any value what-so-ever.  Would you please consider writing to me directly >>>   lorne-shields@rogers.com    ...  Thanks for any courtesies ... Lorne Shields

Hello, is this the item that is for auction at Miller & Miller right now? I am the curator of Meadow Brook Hall and I am also interested in this item (plus of course I'll share it with the Dodge Bros. Club!)

Yes, the "E & D" bicycle was one of the first to feature ball bearings, rather than bushings, in both the hubs and the bottom bracket.

 

That was just one of the Dodge Bros.'s other talents.  Another one was when , at the government's request, they built a factory and manufactured special ammunition to very close tolerances when the U.S. entered WWI.  I think neither GM nor Ford was willing or able to do it.
