MOST USEFUL NUMISMATIC CATALOGS?  

   The same article, by Q. David Bowers, goes on to 
   point out that when asked about building a good 
   numismatic library, his reply was "that a single shelf 
   of good references on subjects of interest would 
   probably suffice as a nucleus, and beyond that books 
   could be added as desired.  Quality is much more 
   important than quantity."  

   He suggests that "it would be a fine thing for someone 
   to make up a list of the most useful catalogues (from 
   an information viewpoint) published since 1950 in 
   such categories as: "U.S. Coins, Colonial and Early 
   American Coins, Tokens and Medals, Paper Money. 
   Such lists could be compiled for every numismatic 
   specialty."  

   The NBS numismatic bibliography, being compiled 
   by Larry Mitchell and available on our web site, 
   includes selected catalogs as well as books, but the 
   U.S. section is yet to be done.   Anyone care to 
   submit their own lists of "most useful" catalogs?
