Hessian Collection Features in Künker Fall Auction 392

By Künker GmbH ……
About a year ago, Künker presented the first part of the collection of historian Dr. Hans-Jürgen Loos with coins and medals of the Hessian region. His plan was to create an overview of Hessian coinage, so he rather appropriately called hus collection of around 1,400 numismatic objects covering seven centuries as “Minted Hessian History”. Collectors were enthusiastic about the offering and the sale was successful.

The second part of this collection will be offered on September 26 in Künker Fall Auction 392. Highlights will include issues from the Landgraviate of Hesse-Darmstadt, the Landgraviate of Hesse-Homburg, the County of Erbach, the City of Frankfurt am Main, the Imperial Castle of Friedberg, the County of Isenburg, and the Nassau and Stolberg territories.
