Search Auction Catalogs of a Single Firm

Newman Portal users may now perform text searches within the catalogs of a single auction firm.  Simply enter the firm name in the “publisher” field of the advanced search page (the list of firms supported are on the Newman Portal auction catalogs landing page). For example, entering “Stacks” in the publisher field and “lightning averted” in the search field reveals 23 references from Stack’s and Stack’s-Bowers auction sale catalogs to this well-known Betts medal (Betts-546).  Did Stack’s subsidiary Coin Galleries ever feature this rare medal?  Indeed they did – once – in April 2003, as a Newman Portal search will demonstrate.
