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 268

The afternoon of September 30, 2015, will be devoted to gold coins and thaler-like coins of Salzburg when the Numitor Collection will be auctioned off. With great rarities and many unique specimens present, of which all are of the best grade possible, this collection can truly serve as an illustrated book of cultural history. The spectrum of numismatic items ranges from the first gold gulden of Pilgrim II of Puchheim, to various fractions of the famous rübenthaler (which is a guldiner, needless to add), to the golden tower coins of Wolf Dietrich of Raitenau (with all denominations between 3 ducats and 10 ducats), to the so-called 1790 löwenthaler of the last Prince Archbishop of Salzburg, Hieronymus of Colloredo.

The item with the currently highest appraisal of this auction sale is a 10-ducat tower coin from 1594. Another five coins, each estimated at 75,000 euros, also have a good chance of obtaining new record prices:

It is important to point out that not all the coins in this spectacular collection are estimated in the five-digit region. Every collector can find interesting material and the appraisals start at 150 euros.
