MICHAEL WELLER OF THE SAN FRANCISCO NUMISMATIC CLUB

Roger S. Siboni writes: "Michael Weller was a preeminent
Antique Silver Dealer in San Francisco (and nationally)
having helped me frequently with American engraver's marks.
In fact, he was the one that helped establish the unique
Standish Barry countermark on an Imitation Doubloon in
The American Numismatic Rarities Eliasburg World Gold Coins
and Medals sale in April 2005 (Lot 3012). Michael was a
leading member of the San Francisco Numismatic Club and a
fairly well respected Greek and Roman collector having
sold a substantial portion of his collection several years
ago through Victor England and CNG.  See below:

"Michael Weller passed from this life on Thursday afternoon
February 21st, in his own bedroom, surrounded by his family
and friends.  Last rites were performed that same evening.

"Michael, although only 67, had been diagnosed with
metastatic cancer less than two months ago, which
progressed quickly.

"Michael, a well known and highly regarded antique silver
dealer, was active in many spheres, and had literally
hundreds of friends.   He had a classical education in
Minnesota, read and spoke Latin, and was a passionate
and knowledgeable collector of Roman & Greek coins and
Renaissance & Baroque medals.    Michael was active in
the Jackson Street Antique Dealers Association, the
American Decorative Arts Forum, the American Bach Soloists,
 the Alamo Square Association, and many others.

"Few have lived so thoughtfully, well, and with such
generosity to others.  A memorial service is being planned.
Goodbye Michael, you will always be in our hearts.
Requiescat in Pace."

[Thanks to Roger for bringing this news to our attention.
