TARGETED AUCTION SEARCH FOR 1876 MEDAL PROJECT SOUGHT

Ron Abler writes; "I've run into a snag gathering data for my
book on 1876 Centennial medals. Published literature on the
subject is scarce, with relevant medals mostly being included
piecemeal under other categories, such as Washingtonia, so-called
dollars, and Mint medals.  I recognize that a treasure trove of
information lies hidden in auction catalogs, especially those
from the late 19th and early 20th century, but I am at a loss
as to how to proceed.

Simply collecting catalogs willy-nilly seems wasteful of money,
time, and shelving space, and older catalogs can be unaffordable.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I might conduct a
targeted search for auction catalogs that actually contain
offerings of 1876 medals and ways to collect the information
without going broke in the process?  My collection strains the
budget too much as it is."
