NUMISMATIC AUCTION CATALOG WIKI STARTED

Gerald Buckmaster writes: "I have created an entry article at for
everyone's reference.  I do have a "seed" list of titles, however I
hesitate to publish as I believe each auction catalog should have
it's own article linked to the above entry, an entry about the
auction house, an entry about the prominent collection, etc.  Probably
the best way to fulfill the original request is to use a web resource
like librarything.com."

Ron Benice reports a negative experience, however: "Tom Delorey's
comments on the accuracy of Wikipedia are right on the money.  If
you search for the first appearance of "In God We Trust" on United
States paper money, you'll "learn" that it was on the back of a
Florida national bank note in 1863.  Florida seceded and joined the
Confederacy in 1861 and didn't get a chartered national bank until
1874."
