Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) and Newman Numismatic Portal (NNP) today announce the full-view availability of Bowers & Merena (and predecessor) auction sale catalogs on NNP.  PCGS holds electronic rights to Bowers & Merena publications prior to February 2004, and is making this content available to NNP on a non-exclusive basis.  The series consists of approximately 200 auction sale catalogs from 1972 to 2004, featuring legendary collections such as Garrett, Norweb, Eliasberg, and Bass.

The Bowers & Merena auction sale catalogs may be accessed on Newman Portal at  Additional classic publications of Bowers & Merena, including Rare Coin Review, will be added over time.  The longstanding "house organ" of Bowers & Merena, Rare Coin Review featured substantive research articles in addition to market updates and fixed price listings of significant coins.

Brett Charville, president of PCGS, commented "PCGS has received many requests to make this material available to the collecting community.  Collector education is an important aspect of our business and we are pleased to add this content to the collective memory of our hobby.  We welcome continued feedback from the community and appreciate their input on all aspects of our operation."  Newman Numismatic Portal project coordinator Len Augsburger noted "We are thrilled to add these publications to Newman Portal on a full-view basis.  Bowers & Merena produced authoritative sale catalogs over an extended period, and this resource will be of great interest to those researching past sales of many important coins.  We are grateful to PCGS for opening this material to the general public."
