    Frossard Catalogues

    The Asylum, Winter 1993

    1/1/1993

    Highlight: most of them priced • 270 Frossard catalogues, 16 plated • 449 catalogues pre-1876 • 5 H.P. Smith Maris catalogues, 1 plated • 60 Scott Sales, 10 plated • 216 Elders sales • 232 Haseltines • 294 Masons • 320 Cogans • 179 small Chapmans; 12 large • etc., etc. Despite the total lack of sleep, I was feverishly active during the entire plane ride home. By the time the aircraft touched down in Boston, I had completed my valuation, written a "thank you" note and was ready to deal. Richard Piper was no pushover. Before my departure, he had told me that he had a very large offer — $30,000, if memory serves-- and he later wrote that he had two more offers in excess of the $25,000 limit that I was will to pay.

The consensus was that the member’s name and state of residence would be enough. A meeting of the member clubs in the F. U. N. Organization was held the same day, and a gavel was presented which in turn is being forwarded to the president of N. B. S. Michael Hodder writes: “My review of Harrington Manville’ s Numismatic Guide to British and Irish Periodicals contained a couple of typographical errors - Second paragraph, second from the last line, last word

    The Asylum, Vol. 24, No. 2

    1/7/2006

    Highlight: Frossard catalogues, Breen manuscripts, an incredibly rare book on colonial currency — all went to the red- headed collector. He spent about three hundred and fifty thousand dollars that day. After the auction I called the redhead, whose name, I found out, is Dan Hamelberg. I wanted to find out what makes a man spend that kind of money on old coin catalogues. A real estate investor in Champaign, Illinois, Hamelberg was still, a week later, lit up about the auction. "It went really well," he said. "It was grueling, though."
