Hello...and welcome to COINCATS!
My name is Karl Moulton and I offer one of the largest selections of coin auction catalogues and numismatic reference books for sale anywhere.
If you love the history and lore of coin collecting, then I advise you to build a large and useful reference library. The American coin auction catalogs and numismatic books date back to the mid-1850’s.
The backbone of any knowledge about United States Coins, Medals, Tokens, and Paper money really comes from the cataloguers who dealt with this material for much of their lives. Names like Edward Cogan, W. Elliot Woodward, Samuel H. & Henry Chapman, B. Max Mehl, Thomas Elder, Abe Kosoff, Stack's, and Q. David Bowers are all part of this fascinating hobby.
While most early sales did not have pictures (plates) of the coins being sold, the ones that did are now sought and coveted by researchers, collectors, and numismatic authors.
More recent catalogs contain beautiful color plates, long descriptions and pedigrees, with most coins attributed by variety.
We invite you to check out our website and view the tremendous selection of coin auction catalogs, reference materials and numismatic books. Hopefully you will then favor us with an order! Feel free to e-mail, call, or write with any questions. Invest in knowledge and really enjoy numismatics!
