Adolph Weyl (1841-1901), son of Salomon Weyl (1807-), and Veronique Fromet Eisenmann (1807-1883), was born on June 2, 1841 at Benfeld, Bas-Rhin, Alsace, France.
In 1872, he lived at Paris, France.
On May 30, 1872, he married Emilie Therese Clara Flint at Berlin, Brandenburg, Germany.
German numismatic dealer Adolph Weyl had his shop at Muhrenstrasse 16, West Berlin, Germany beginning in 1874.
In 1876, he began holding coin auction sales.
Adolph Weyl attended an 1879 auction in Germany purchasing an 1804 Silver Dollar. There certainly is convincing evidence that the Chapman brothers legitimately purchased, what’s now known as the Dexter Dollar, from the 1884 Adolph Weyl sale in Berlin, Germany.
In 1880, he began publishing Berliner Munzblatter, followed by Numismatische Correspondenz.

Exceptionally rare and probably no one has ever seen anything like this before in any American numismatic collection. Courtesy Lupia Numismatic Library.
He conducted about 300 coin auction sales in his twenty-five year career in coin auctions.
After the deaths of his wife and children Abraham Adolph Weyl became very despondent and committed suicide on December 18, 1901, at Berlin, Germany.
