CAKVED - If- Discovery By Junk Dealer May Pay Off Mcriden. Conn.-UP)-A bronze bust of Abraham Lincoln, picked up by a junk dealer in a cluttered cellar, may be worth a modest fortune to him. Chester Orsini, 29, veteran of World War II, came upon the larnished bust a year ago, policed it up and put it on his television set. Several offers to buy it prompted Orsini to look into its value. Sigmund Rothschild, New York irt dealer and appraiser, said the just was an original by Franklin annmons and would be worth as much as 825,000 "in the heart of he Lincoln country" in the Mid- 'est. Art records show that Simions worked in Washington, D. C. in 1864 and 1865 where he did !vcral busts and statues.
