Historic Southern California Money for Auction

More than 100 pieces of historic, rare Orange County California paper money from the collection of the late William (“Willie”) Pannier, long-time owner of the Fullerton Coin & Stamps store, will be offered in an auction to be conducted by Ira & Larry Goldberg Coins & Collectibles (www.GoldbergCoins.com) in Beverly Hills, February 1, 2011.

The auction also includes a two-pound gold nugget nicknamed “The Fullerton Boulder” that Pannier often used as a paperweight.

Fullerton Coin & Stamps opened in 1961 in downtown Fullerton and was acquired by Pannier in 1976. In 1978 he moved the store to its present location, 123 N. Raymond Ave., and the shop will celebrate its 50th anniversary this year because of Manley’s reopening of the store.

Pannier began collecting paper money in the late 1960s and then became interested in Orange County currency, according to his brother David.

Lot viewing for the auction is conducted now through February 2, 2011 at the Beverly Hills, California offices of Ira & Larry Goldberg Coins& Collectibles, 350 South Beverly Dr., Suite 350. The auction will be conducted at the Crowne Plaza Beverly Hills Hotel, 1150 South Beverly Dr., starting January 31 and the Pannier collection items will be offered on February 1.
