The best book for info on the Hayes set is the " Official White House China : 1789 to the Present", 1999 edition
by Margaret Brown Klapthor. It is usually available at large book stores (plus Amazon, etc.).
There are several versions of this set- the official version used by President & Lucy Hayes, plus 25 proof sets to help recompense the Haviland company for the huge cost of these unique dishes.
There were also Patents taken out on this set (patent numbers 11921-11936).
There are distinguising marks for the various versions of this set (mentioned in the book).
