In my library I have a Xerox copy of an index to Coin Collectors Journal, second series, published 1930's to 1950's, by Charles M. Johnson. Do any of our E-Sylum readers know when and where this was published? It appears to cover Volumes 1 through 20, but I didn't copy the title page or cover. I don't remember now where I found this in the first place.
And while we are on the subject, does anyone know of a listing of indexes to numismatic periodicals?
Also, does anyone know where I can find a set of Numismatic Bulletin, published by the Pacific Coast Numismatic Society? Is it still being published? I would like to buy or borrow the issues before 1970.
Can anyone help? I don't think I have that particular index. The title page may have the publication information.
Indexes are very valuable to researchers. The late Harry Bass recognized this and created NIP, the Numismatic Index of Periodicals.
Included are both the first series
Coin Collector's Journal, 1875-1888, by Scott Stamp and Coin Co. and the second series, 1934-1954, published by Wayte Raymond.
Unfortunately, when Harry died the project languished and hasn't been kept up to date. But the American Numismatic Association took it over from the Bass Foundation and hosts the static database on its web site.
