Ex. Fernand David Collection.
Very little information about Fernand David (1861-1927) has survived, however from the breadth and ambition of his collection, ranging from ancient coins, French and world coins, medals, tokens, and badges, it is clear that as a numismatist he was quite engaged in his efforts and had a discerning approach. The collection also has areas of keen focus, for example on its rare types of Roman aurei and dozens of pieces from Lorraine. His ability to indulge in so many areas was likely made possible for he was one of the owners of “A. David Frères“, an extremely prosperous factory that produced trimmings, lace, and embroidery. The company was awarded several international exhibition medals from Paris in 1889, Chicago in 1893, Amsterdam in 1895, Brussels in 1897, and at the Great Universal Exhibition of 1900 in Paris.
In his lifetime, Fernand David was anything but a secretive figure in the numismatic world. The “Guida Numismatica Universale” (Gnecchi brothers) mentioned his alongside the collections of Prince Napoleon and the Comte de Castellane. He was also an active member of the Société Française de Numismatique (SFN) and often shared his findings and research with the organization. Fellow collectors and numerical scholars equally respected him personally and his contributions to numismatics. The oeuvre of his collection shows his refinement for obtaining the finest examples displaying both beauty and rarity. The remaining pieces of his collection today show a reflection of his numismatic passion and prowess.
