I added a "want list" page in an effort to find/re-acquire prices realized from older NASCA and Smythe sales. I hope against hope that this will be a temporary page, but something tells me it will be around for a long time. Please check your collection.

August newsletter mailed. Henceforth, I will post newsletters on this web site in Acrobat format and notify subscribers that it is available. Increasing postage costs combined with the increasing size of the subscription list has convinced me of the necessity of going to a full electronic version. I will continue to mail paper copies to those without web access.

I have added a new Notes feature to the "Select company" page of the database search. These notes will show you all sorts of extra information about companies including organization dates, wrap-up dates, company nicknames, presidents. I am also starting to compile short company biographies. At this point, only a tiny handful of companies are represented.

I updated the database search code to correct an error that one of my correspondents had discovered a few weeks ago. There was a problem with accurately finding companies that started with "St." I also modified the way the search handles confusing words like St, Saint, Sainte, Mt and Mount.
