And now for the book collector who has a real OCD problem - this is a regular softbound copy of Stacks' Herman Halpern auction in 1993 - the first catalog that Stacks put out with color pictures of paper money lots:

Now, we move on the regular hardbound version - this is Copy 107 of 200 made:

Next is the Deluxe Hardbound version with this being Copy No. 1 of just 25 made - I got it out of the Kolbe sale ten years ago when Stacks auctioned off a portion of their private library:

And now the specialist may ask "Where's the White One?"  You see, Stacks also made a Super Deluxe version in full White Morocco Leather of which only FIVE were produced.  Unfortunately, I've never had an opportunity to acquire one.  I know where two of the five are located but they are currently not for sale.  If anyone can help me out, please let me know!  Thanks!

Well, my book threads aren't generating much of a response - everybody would rather talk politics - guess I'll have to see if there's a real paper money forum out there.  Anyway, here's one last try.
Anybody ever see this Grinnell catalog?  It's the "Clean Up" sale that Barney Bluestone held in 1947 for odds and ends that never made it into the first seven sales along with unsold lots.  This "Sale No. 8" comes with a blue cover and was not included in the 1971 Reprint.  It comes with the original mailing envelope and it turns out it cost all of 4-1/2 cents to mail in 1947.

 Bob you're collecting an extremely specialized field. I like your posts about the common to very limited editions for a specific auction catalog such as the above Halpern auction.

You said it, "And now for the book collector who has a real OCD problem". ðŸ˜‡

Here's one on Ebay that's fairly tough to get, and has sold for 2-3 times the price here.

And here's another one!

Most folks have seen the SPMC publication National Bank Note Issues of 1929-1935 with the usual blue cover.  Well, did you know there was a special "Sponsor's Edition"?  Just 25 were made and it comes with a burgundy cover, marbled inside covers, and gold leaf on the page borders.

This is Copy No. 19 and was originally given to Grover Criswell:

Keep 'em coming Bob16. I find this thread as amazing as any of the currency ones. Btw, I get every book that I can signed by the author when I get them at a show. I also find it interesting as to how they sign. Most enjoy dating and even making a personal notation to me, my collection, or the show. Then others, a simple signature without so much as even a date. But, either way, I use them. Many of the pages end up with notations of how many, or serial numbers or when and how much I paid, next to the particular information.

Since my collecting focus is Imperial Russian notes, these two are a must-have. The first is volume 3 of Denisov's "The Russian Paper Money of 1769-1917" and covers the 1898-1917 period that I focus on. You would be shocked - amazed - how woefully poor the Standard World Catalog is when it comes to Imperial Russia. I don't collect graded notes because their holder attributions are cringe-worthingly wrong. Denisov's book is the key.

1) Where can I find these books? 

2) I know zero Russian is there enough English inside to help me?

The following link will take you directly to the part 3 of Denisov. It may take a while to open, and you should be able to directly download from this link:

http://www.fa.ru/org/div/museum/SiteAssets/Pages/empire/Денисов%20А.Е.%20Бумажные%20денежные%20знаки%20России%201769-1917%20гг.%20Часть%203.pdf

There is some English sprinkled in as titles of sections, but otherwise there are no English paragraphs in the book. So I would say that if you can't read Russian, it won't help you. However, the charts in the book are really the most valuable portion - and since they have pictures and ranges of series prefixes, it's possible to get by without Russian once you know the order of items in the charts. Send me a message if you need additional help.
