Did the auction catalogs have prices realized sheets with them?

Thank you GR58. I would not say impressive by any stretch of the imagination, but it serves me well for my research.

Added Comprehensive Encyclopedia of U.S. Silver Dollars by John Highfill yesterday.

We were out looking through shops and I found it just sitting there waiting on me. Interesting way it is organized and complied. I am looking forward to having some time to sit and really dig into it.

Nice - that's one of my favorite Silver Dollar books, also keep an eye out for Wayne Miller's book on Morgan and Peace dollars too, another great book, that has some of the finest toned dollar photos and many of the great Jack Lee collection.
That Highfill book should keep you busy for a few nights at least, as it's massive.

Yes it is quite large and as the weather should one of these days start to get colder I will have plenty of time this winter to dig into it. I will indeed keep an eye out for Millers book. Thank you for that tidbit.

Also, I am not sure if you received it but I did reply to your email about the auction catalogues the other day.

Most of my books are packed away right now. Trying to get ready to move.

But I really do like the Highfill dollar book.


That is another very good addition to your collection

Thank you jbuck. These auction catalogs I find to be pretty cool. One of these days I may post the bulk of my reference material on here - but since this thread was named "new additions" I do not figure the reference books and literature I already owned applied :) I find a great deal of joy in finding a new book or catalog to add to my collection of reference material. And it keeps me from asking quite a few questions on here since I usually can find an answer myself
