Maurice Storck was a popular, long-time coin dealer schooled early-on by the Great Depression and later by World War II. He was a decorated veteran who witnessed first-hand the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Later, he faithfully served the army’s 25th infantry division at Guadalcanal and the Solomon Islands.
After the war, he was one of the few coin dealers to attend the famed Palace Collections of Egypt (aka The King Farouk Sale), with many of the purchases remaining in his collection to be offered now. Maurice A. Storck was a fascinating man – one of the oldest Pearl Harbor survivors prior to his death in late 2019 – and a tireless volunteer busy with numismatics to the end.
