Searching through

I am a collector of early computer manufacturers, so when I go through a sales list or some albums of a dealer, I hope to expect the papers are classified by type of activity. Oops ... "Oh no, they are classified by country", is a common reaction.
What is your preferred way to go through the certificates ? You can vote for it in the poll below the page. The results will be summarized at the end of the year.


  1. Dear Franky,

    A very interesting question. But let's face it, no matter how auction catalogs or dealer lists are organized someone misses out.

    I collect early rails - regardless of country but I also collect Argentina, Uruguay, Belgium, UK and US.

    I would "vote" to continue by country as that seems to be the most common collecting criteria of the folks that I know of.

    But, for web posted pieces, I would hope that the sellers would classify multiple ways as that only increases our chances of finding things and for them to make a sale.
