The collection had never been inventoried, because Mr Franz H. was died before hi could make it. That is why Mrs H. makes a reduction in the price in the amount of 20 percents.

The collection will be sold only in his entirety.

It will be sold at the person who makes the best bid.

Minimum price: 325'000 US Dollars

If you are interested you can contact us (press link at the top of the site). Mrs H. would like to show you the big collection of her husband.

The web-master declares that is no deliberate misrepresentation in this homepage. Nevertheless errors are possible. The buyer takes the collection at one's own risk.
