The Fitzwilliam lists: A great resource for researching numismatic sales

This resource came up in another thread, but I think it should be more generally advertised. 

It's provided by the Fitzwilliam Musuem at the University of Cambridge and has been around for quite some time. Updates seem to have stopped in 2016, but for anything older than that I find it invaluable, especially for sales from more obscure firms.

As it happens, I was discussing this great project with some friends literally just yesterday. For financial reasons, they won't be updating it going forward. They're firmly committed to maintaining the archives intact though, both the online resource and the physical catalogs themselves. The physical archives are available for browsing, should anyone find themselves in Cambridge with a few spare hours to kill. Or spare weeks. (You might even happen upon a few with cryptic annotations by a certain Phil Davis, lol.)

Awesome! That's great to hear it won't be going away. A trip to the physical archives...well, that would be me out of sight for a while 😄 I'll look out for those annotations!
