The Harry M. Eisenhauer Collection of Canadian Currency at Heritage Auctions’ Long Beach Sale

Some of the most remarkable collections are built by the collectors and researchers that give back to the hobby most. Harry M. Eisenhauer is no exception. Harry specialized in Canadian Chartered Banknotes, with a particular focus on the Eastern Provinces of Canada. Over 50 years of collecting, he was able to acquire some of the most spectacular rarities from Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Quebec, and Prince Edward Island. This collection is featured in our September 5-9 Signature Auction of World Paper Money in Long Beach.

Harry started collecting at the age of nine in 1947. He was drawn to the engravings on stamps, naturally leading to an interest in Canadian banknotes. He ardently shared his passion with others, serving fellow collectors and advancing the hobby through his activities in numismatics. He is Life Member No. 16 of the Canadian Paper Money Society, and served as the first Vice President and Membership Director, later serving as President. He also served as President and a founding member in the Atlantic Provinces Numismatic Association and Fredericton Numismatic Society. Beyond numismatics, Harry is a founding patron of the J. Douglas Ferguson Education and Research Foundation, and Farmers Bank of Rustico Museum.

Education was important to Harry, as he served as a frequent speaker, convention chairman and moderator of many an educational symposium at local, regional, and national events. Harry lent a hand to Bob Graham, contributing significantly to the Canadian Paper Money Society Note Registry for more than 30 years. His notes were listed, and are undoubtedly on want lists for many a specialist. Harry also served as a contributor to the Charlton catalogs, both for research and market pricing. His lifelong endeavors have earned him honorary life memberships in The Halifax Regional Coin Club, Ingersoll Coin Club, and Prince Edward Island Numismatic Association. In 1973, he was awarded the Dale Garland Award.

Harry helped shape Canadian banknote collecting, and we owe him a great debt of gratitude. This offering is the first time that many collectors will have a chance to compete for these Chartered banknote rarities, and the conditions of the representative survivors are in many cases, unequaled.

Highlights of this offering include notes such as:
