Exhibits and Mounted Collections

Welcome to the section of the Siegel website where we display exhibits and mounted collections.

Exhibits and mounted collections are an excellent way of conveying original research, and of showing different ways of mounting one's collection. Not all of the information can make it into an auction catalogue, and is lost if not published.

This section is intended as a research tool, as well as an inspiration to collectors.
