32 Recently Issued eCatalogues

Not so long ago the gold standard for presentation in the collectible paper field was the printed catalog.  Dealers prepared them and institutions, collectors and other dealers read them.  But times have changed and, while superb printed catalogues are being issued, the art of selling via the electronic catalogue is developing into a successful medium.  It has been bound to happen.

This month almost 30 new electronic catalogues have been posted.  Within AE Monthly there are 3 section; Articles, Reviews and eCatalogues.

Here is a list of recently posted eCatalogues and at the end of the list a link to go to Section III.  Dealers posting more than 1 catalogue have a number next to their name to indicate the number of eCatalogues posted:
