Coins Weekly is reporting that LHS Numismatik AG, one of the great Swiss numismatic firms, is facing liquidation. See
Just last year, Sylvia Hurter, one of the world's most prominent numismatists and a long time employee of the firm, passed away. See http://culturalpropertyobserver.blogspot.com/2009/01/prominent-numismatist-passes-away.html
Thankfully, LHS and its predecessor firm Leu, has left us with a long run of magnificent catalogues as a testament to the history of this fine firm.
