Published from 1935-1976 with six issues in 1935, four in 1936, and monthly thereafter. Voted #33 in the Numismatic Bibliomania Society survey of the top 100 items in American numismatic literature, and described there as follows:
While The Numismatist focused on club news, columns, and feature articles, the Scrapbook was an advertisement driven vehicle, running over three hundred pages a month at the height of the 1960s coin boom, with the great majority of content dedicated to plying the coin trade. To be sure it still attracted top numismatic research talent, including Walter Breen, Robert Julian, and others. Also found were numerous brief news updates that often convey information found nowhere else. With a constant stream of back issues available via E-Bay and online booksellers, a run of the Scrapbook remains accessible, useful, and affordable. One might add storable to our attributions, as the handy 5” x 6” size ensures that bookshelf challenged collectors can house a complete set in a surprisingly small amount of space.
