IC 3773 is a pretty low surface brightness late-type galaxy in the Virgo Cluster, found by Frost on a Harvard plate. There is a 15th magnitude star superposed on the outer boundary of the galaxy about an arcmin northeast of the nucleus. Even though Frost claims that the galaxy is Sn 150, his position is about 2 arcmin southwest of Schwassmann's, which is within a few arcsec of the star. This suggests that Frost should be credited with the discovery of this galaxy rather than Schwassmann.
