exhausted exemplars that were prime candidates for 
ownership. They then tended to list, to some small degree, 
more of the smaller items. But with things not owned, they 
were relatively free to continue listing larger, prime 
Comparison of the categorizations of the two recall 
lists also demonstrates that the recall listings themselves
