The Edouard Lancey Collection of World Coins
Edouard Lancey’s interest in numismatics began early in his teenage years, He soon matured into an avid an learned collector of World Coins and concentrated on the quest of compiling a comprehensive group of European minors, those of the German States are particularly well represented here. He bought only from the most reputable European coin dealers and this collection, untouched until his death in 1986 clearly demonstrates the breadth and variety of his taste.
The collection was inherited by a descendant of Edouard Lancey and was brought to Dix Noonan Webb for appraisal and sale upon his death earlier this year. We have great pleasure in offering for ale the Edouard Lancey Collection and hope our clients will take advantage of this opportunity to enjoy these coins which have not been available to the market for several decades.
