Fenton Catalogs

Long-time friends of MAGWV Ken and Margaret Whitmyer have under taken a project to scan all of the Fenton Catalogues they possibly can and format them in a readable text format. This resource currently contains catalogues from 1940, 1942, 1943, and a Catalogue on Coin Dot. Keep checking back as we will continue to update this Resource as the Whitmyers scan more catalogue.
