Digitalisation of old auction catalogues: we have been working for several months on adding old auction catalogues to the database to facilitate pedigree research. So far, we have digitalized 121 catalogues from 1901-1938 with more than 60’000 coins. All these entries are included to the full-text search and are at disposal to users with a Premium-Account. We will also continuously be adding more catalogues during the next months. If you would like to participate in the project by donating pre-1999 catalogues (especially complete series), please contact us by email – we greatly appreciate any assistance.
Basic- and Premium-Accounts: since the launching of acsearch.info in 2009, the extent of the database (now close to 3 million) and the web-traffic (close to 300’000 hits per day) have increased steadily. To cover our growing amount of work and expenses, we have therefore decided to introduce a fee-based Premium-Account (annual subscription 85 EUR, two years 160 EUR, one week 15 EUR). The scientific access to the database starting from 1999 remains free: users with a Basic-Account have full access to descriptions and pictures. Users with a Premium-Account gain additional access to price informations and other new features.
