Newman Portal Digitizes Stack's Auction Sale Catalogs
The Stack's series of auction sale catalogs, commencing in 1935 and numbering over 700 sales, represent a foundational core of American numismatic literature. Known as Stack's Bowers
Galleries beginning in 2011, this auction house has attracted premier consignments for multiple generations and engaged equally stellar specialists as catalogers for nearly every collecting
discipline within American numismatics. The result is an indispensible series of sale catalogs, many of which serve as standard references.
The Newman Portal has now posted over 200 of these, covering the period 1960-1980. The remainder will be added in the coming months. The Newman Portal acknowledges Stack's Bowers Galleries for
their cooperation in facilitating this work.
Link to Stack's catalogs on the Newman Portal:
Remember, only the 1960-1980 run is fully online. While other sales are listed on the portal, these are just placeholders awaiting scanning.
We can all be victims of expectations creep. As technology advances we become so quickly accustomed to the ready availability of certain features and content that we forget that such access
didn't exist anywhere in the world until a few months ago, and complain when it's not instantly at our fingertips.
So wear your hard hat and watch your step while exploring a web site still under construction. -Editor
