Albert Pick, the world renowned banknote collector, namesake of the Pick Number and author of the famous Banknote Catalogs, died recently in November of 2015. He began his incredible collection before his tenth birthday and his love for collecting continued throughout his life. During the Second World War, he served on the wrong side, was captured and spent a year in the POW camp in the United States before being released a the end of hostilities.  After the war, he amassed a collection of over 180,000 banknotes, which was received in 1964 by the Bavarian Mortgages and Exchange Bank. Pick was hired by the bank and served as the collections curator from 1964 – 1985. His 1964 catalog, written in German, was the first comprehensive paper money catalog. This work was translated into English in the 1970s and became known as The Standard Catalog of World Paper Money. Its numbering system, the Pick Numbers was widely adopted by banknote collectors from around the world.
