GEORGE FULD ON JULIUS GUTTAG'S CIVIL WAR TOKEN COLLECTION

George Fuld writes: "As it is well known Dr. George Hetrich and
Julius Guttag wrote the first definitive study of Civil War tokens.
Both authors had very large collections.  The Hetrich collection
was auctioned off intact by a small auction house in Pennsylvania
(Pennypacker) to Barney Sipos of Washington, Pa.  He died a few
years later and I have no idea what happened to the collection.

The Guttag collection of some 4,500+ pieces went to Max Schwartz
of New York.  He remounted the collection in large Wayte Raymond
coin boards.  It was sold to John Zug of Bowie, MD who advertised
it for sale in The Numismatist.  It did not sell.  Upon his death
it went to New Netherlands Coin Co. and we acquired it in 1958.
It was integrated into our collection and duplicates disposed of."
