Уважаемые клиенты!

Ввиду актуальных событий в Украине и связанных с ними санкций мирового сообщества мы приняли решение прекратить все торговые операции с физическими и юридическими лицами, находящимися в Российской Федерации и Беларуси. Решение вступает в силу немедленно и остается действительным до дальнейшего уведомления.  

Сообщения из зоны военных действий вызывают у всех нас чувство глубокой горечи и сожаления. Мы солидарны с людьми, находящимися в Украине или вынужденными покинуть страну, которые испытывают в настоящий момент огромные страдания и лишения.

Мы просим понимания с Вашей стороны и надеемся на скорейшее мирное разрешение этого конфликта.

The Mark and Lottie Salton Collection

Dear bidders and coin enthusiasts,

On the occasion of the auction of the Salton Collection, we have compiled the story of the Hamburger-Schlessinger coin dealer dynasty in a brochure as well as in a podcast.

Mark Salton (1914-2005) came from probably the most important dynasty of German coin dealers before the First World War. Behind the American name Mark Salton was Max Schlessinger, son of Felix Schlessinger (1879-1944), who was himself a nephew of Leo Hamburger the Younger (1846-1929). Together with his cousin Leo Hamburger the Elder (1836-1902), Leo Hamburger the Younger built up the most important German coin shop of the era before the First World War.
