Dear Bidders and Phaleristics Enthusiasts,

In this newsletter, we are delighted to introduce to you two remarkable special collections. Auction 267, the Roland Grüber Collection, consists of the largest compilation of coins and medals of Brandenburg in Franconia ever to be on the market. Ranging from an inconspicuous kipper coin to a gorgeous presentation piece, the collection comprises everything related to the subject.

The Numitor Collection consists of an impressive collection of coins and medals of the archbishopric of Salzburg in Auction 268. Its collection focuses on gold coins, notably coins in the weight of multiple ducats, as well as the particularly rare thalers.

Both collections illustrate how much a collector shapes his or her collection by their individual choices. Collecting involves much more than just “checking off the box”. It is an ambitious and challenging exercise, which also gives great pleasure. With their devotion, their enthusiasm and their passion for detail, collectors certainly make a special kind of people. But we are sure that you know that already!

Please enjoy browsing our two special auction catalogs.

Preview of Auction 267

The Roland Grüber Collection is an incredible work of a lifetime. As an avid and meticulous coin collector, Mr. Grüber collected a great number of coins and medals related to Brandenburg in Franconia over the last two decades. It is not hard to see how much work this collection thrived off of and how many hours of research were spent in order to locate the pieces. As it befits a real collector, Mr Grüber not only chose exclusive specimens to be part of his collection but also included everyday change related to the topic. On the one hand this offers a very round picture of the subject, and on the other it offers lot estimates which vary between 10 and 25,000 euros.

To try to even present a selection of highlights of the Roland Grüber Collection is a hard thing to do, when there are so many the spotlight can be on.

But here are a few:

Last but not least, the Roland Grüber Collection also includes almost 400 lots featuring Franconia and the Bavarian Crown, cities and estates located in Franconia, individuals related to the subject of Franconia, the time of the Swedish occupation of Franconia, the Franconian Imperial Circle and medals created by the medalists of the Reich family, based in the city Fürth.
