I've been scanning in the text from the catalogue for the 1990 auction of the American Banknote Company archives. As I scan in new sections I'll make them available here.

Once the scanning is completed I'll convert the data a second time and add it to the All_Lots spreadsheet so we can see this data in context with all the other auction data. That might also be about the time I have to seriously consider converting the spreadsheet data to Access format in order to be able to manipulate the data more effectively.

Thanks Greg for the OCR data from this catalog. This is really nice to have, especially in Word format that is really easy to search. Can't wait to get the rest.

As I continue to process this data I find an occasional transcription error. I'm correcting these as I find them, and will post an updated version from time to time with the fixes included.

At the moment, I'm converting the data for use in the All_Lots spreadsheet.
