Let me send you price lists of numismatic literature tailored to your collecting interests
While I could opine the loss of many-a-show since the coronavirus pandemic hit my neck of the woods in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada last March (I just received notice from the Edmonton Numismatic Society that they cancelled their fall show scheduled for Nov. 14-15; they were also the first show on my schedule to cancel last March 14-15), if there's one thing the pandemic has taught me for which I am most grateful, it is the importance of becoming more familiar with my stock. In turn, this helps me gain a greater appreciation for what I have and how I can position it to best serve my far-flung customers.
This began with the opportunity the pandemic afforded me to move about 3,000 lbs. of mostly books and equipment from a storage facility to my home at the beginning of May, just before the first anniversary of its shipment from Montreal where the business was domiciled when I purchased it. There's nothing like having everything at your fingertips to get more familiar with it!
Since I couldn't attend shows, I began developing customized price lists to send my customers, according to their various collecting interests. So far, I've created custom lists on American Numismatic Association reprints, American Civil War Tokens, Canadian Pre-Confederation Tokens, East Asian numismatics (Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Philippine, etc.), TAMS publications, U.S. ephemeral and obscure, World Medals (including U.S. medals), World Paper Money (including U.S. paper money) and others.
These are the tip of the iceberg. My stock covers the gamut of numismatic literature about ancients, both Canadian and U.S. decimal and exonumia to World coins, medals, tokens and paper money and beyond! Why limit such price lists to just a handful of recipients when they could benefit many more collectors? Enter The E-Sylum as a natural gateway for me to provide this service to a much wider readership. Thanks to editor Wayne Homren's invitation, let me now make this service available to you (a service he himself has already benefited from).
Simply send your request to
firstname.lastname@example.org. There's no obligation. You have nothing to lose and you may gain that hard-to-find numismatic publication to add to your collection for a reasonable price. I look forward to delving into my stock to present you an array of desirable numismatic publications that will enhance your experience of the hobby either by better informing you about your own collection or simply by their own intrinsic collectibility.
