The E-Sylum: Volume 4, Number 10, March 4, 2001, Article 4


Karl Moulton has compiled "A Listing of Sales by the Major American Auction Companies" of the last decade. Picking up where Martin Gengerke's listing ended, Moulton's "United States Numismatic Auction Catalogues 1990-2000" is available from the author at $29.95 plus $4 shipping & handling.

The 60-page spiral-bound softcover reference lists all catalogues issued during the period by forty major firms, including Stack's, Bowers & Merena, Classical Numismatic Group, and Currency Auctions of America. Numismatic literature dealers are listed as well, including Remy Bourne, Charles Davis, Function Associates / Lake Books, Orville Grady, George Kolbe, and The Money Tree.

For each catalogue, the date and name of the sale are listed, along with the number of pages and lots, and the names of the listed consignors. Where appropriate, there is an indication of the type of material offered for sale. . Unfortunately, there is no index of consignors - this would be a useful addition for a future update. Karl has done a great service to our hobby; numismatics doesn't stand still, and even the greatest references need to be brought up to date periodically. He can be reached at this email address:
