Maxferd Jewelry & Loan began in 1884 as “Maxferd Loan Office” near Market Street, in downtown San Francisco. The name actually comes from a combination of the first names of the two original owners- partners, Max Harris and Ferdinand Wolfson. Herb Caen, famous San Francisco Chronicle journalist, as well as many other well-known political figures, would visit often. Caen even stated, “Maxferd’s is the Tiffany of Pawnshops.”
In the 1980’s and 90’s The Collateral Lender, Inc. opened and purchased several stores in the San Fernando Valley, Beverly Hills and San Francisco, including the historic Maxferd shop. Finally, in 2012 the Maxferd brand came to Beverly Hills as the flagship store of The Collateral Lender, Inc. family of pawnshops.
