Stack's. FIXED PRICE LISTS. New York, 1939-70. A nearly complete set through 1970, including Nos. (1)-12, 12-A, 14-34, 35, 35-A, the 22-page version of No. 36, 37, 38, 40-44, 44-A, 45-51, 53-66, 66-A, 67-A, 68, 69 (both original card cover variants), and 70-76. Seventy-eight catalogues total. Varying formats, mostly self-covered, some earlier ones two-hole punched as issued. Overall condition very good to fine. Rather modestly produced for the most part, the scarce early fixed price lists were an important commercial vehicle for Stack's and are of considerable interest. List 9 offers 271 "U.S. Large Cents From 1793 to 1857 With Important Die Varieties"; list 14 features 831 "U.S. Large Cents From 1793 to 1857 With Important Die Varieties From the A.C. Gies Collection." The latter was catalogued by teenaged numismatic tyro John J. Ford, Jr. and exhibits a penchant for detail that would later propel him to the front ranks of commercial American numismatics. Catalogue 12-A, a well-produced catalogue of Choice Ancient Gold Coins, is accompanied by two photographic plates that are rarely encountered. Essentially complete for the time period.
