Did you know Stack’s Bowers Galleries is featuring the Heintzelman Collection as part of our official auction of the Whitman Coin & Collectibles Winter Expo?

The Heintzelman Collection was compiled and curated by generations of the Heintzelman, Huber, and Henry families, who settled in south central Pennsylvania before the American Revolution. One notable ancestor was Major General Samuel Peter Heintzelman of Manheim, Pennsylvania, who served in the Mexican-American War and in the Union Army during the Civil War.

The collection focused on mainly United States coins and paper money, as well as foreign coins collected during times of world war and peace. Parts of the collection were stored inside the pages of a datebook from 1896 and in envelopes from the Annville, Pennsylvania bank where Elmer Henry worked in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Over the decades it was handed down through generations, before eventually passing to Elmer’s grandson, C.I.A. officer H. Henry Heintzelman, who passed away in 1999. It is now being offered publicly for the first time.

Significant highlights from the Heintzelman Collection include a Choice AU 1802/1 Capped Bust Right half eagle, a Mint State 1810 Capped Bust Left half eagle, and a pair of important $10 Legal Tender notes from the Civil War-era. This fresh, new-to-the-market offering will attract considerable excitement from collectors across various categories of numismatics.

The auction will take place, November 13-16, 2019 in Baltimore, Maryland. Click here to view the full auction schedule or to request your copy of a catalog email [email protected].
