View Full Version : Awesome Numismatic Catalogs

Check out their catalogs - right now they're featuring large cent and half cent errors. I thumbed through them and am very impressed with the photographs and descriptions of the coins. I attached some screen shots of a couple of them. The first is a 1798 large cent struck over an East India Trading Company token, and the other is an incredible 1800 full obverse brockage. I saved all the best catalogs as pdfs. :D

Some of these older, well established firms have put out beautiful catalogs over the years. Bowers and Merena is one that I have picked up and held onto when ever I see them at a show.

It is interesting to see how the internet and digital photography is changing the landscape in the industry. The days of catalogs and price lists are winding down.
