YPM 1980 Femur, Proximal and Distal Views

Dear DMLers,

Plate 71 of Ostrom and McIntosh 1966, _Marsh's Dinosaurs_ (on page
207) shows illustrations of the left femur of the "Brontosaurus"
(ie. _Apatosaurus_) _excelsus_ holotype, YPM 1980.  The plate includes
anterior and medial views of the femur, but not proximal or distal
views.  If anyone out there has happened to examine this bone and
photograph it in these aspects, I would _very_ much appreciate scans
of the photos.  If you can help, please reply off-list.  Thank you.
