Graded by DNW as EF. The Michael Gietzelt Collection of British and Irish Milled Coins. Michael Gietzelt was born in Berlin in 1954, the son of a doctor.
Educated at Berlin Secondary School, he performed his military service in the DGR Medical Corps, attaining the rank of Sergeant, before entering Berlin University to study medicine in 1975. Within two years he had decided that medicine was not the career choice for him and he opened his antique shop on the Frankfurter-Alle in Berlin in 1977.
From the outset Michaels aim has been to form a type collection of British coins from Edward III to the present day, but with the dispersal of his milled coins his coin collecting focus will now be on the hammered series, including Scottish and Irish issues, while maintaining his collections of coins and tokens of the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands. Together with his wife Gisela, Michael also collects German porcelain, particularly Meissen, while their busy home life revolves around their five children and ten grandchildren.
