Harzfeld, S.K. AUCTION SALES OF COINS AND MEDALS. NUMBERS 1-16. New York: Bangs & Co., 1877-81. A complete set of sixteen catalogues. 8vo, original printed wraps. All but three of the sales (8, 10 an 16) are handpriced. Mostly near fine or so, with a few being worn. An interesting, if short-lived, series of sales. Harzfeld was only active in the U.S. for three and a half years before poor health led him to retire to his native Germany, where he died in 1883. According to Adams, “Harzfeld’s descriptions of European as well as ancient pieces are authoritative.”
