We have the great pleasure to announce that The Scripophily Center will conduct its next auction on 1.11.2014 in Brussels, Europe’s capital. We have chosen the iconic location of the Atomium to host the auction. For any collector of old shares/bonds this will most certainly be an unforgettable event on an unforgettable location.
The Atomium was the ‘Eifel Tower of Belgium’ during the 1958 Brussels World Exhibition. It is very easy to reach, has plenty of parking space, is a highlight tourist attraction and above all gives us the most unusual auction room imaginable (in one of the spheres), with a splendid view over Brussels.
On walking distance (<1 km), your family can enjoy Mini-Europe (a miniature park showing Europe’s most important buildings), a subtropical swimming paradise, a huge cinema complex as well as several hotels and restaurants for all tastes.
Shifting our Fall Auction to Brussels (we will keep our Spring Auctions in Antwerp), right in the center of Belgium, is not only advantageous for many of our Belgian clients, it also simplifies travelling from abroad, with for instance Brussels Airport nearby (7km) and the Brussels Ring Road just aside the Atomium (no need to drive through Brussels).
Furthermore, Brussels is home to a large number of International organizations (European Union, NATO, etc.), resides a lot of diplomats and headquarters many multinationals. Their staff is a growing segment in our client base and we will further promote scripophily to them with this Brussels Auction.
No wonder we are truly excited about our next Auction. We hope we can give you the same feeling. We’ll give you more info after the Summer. For now, we kindly suggest to note in your agenda “Brussels – 1 November 2014 – Boone Scripophily Auction !!!”.

NEW: BOOK on Baron E. EMPAIN by J. Simar
We would like to draw your attention to our most recent publication :
Edouard Empain - esprit fécond, entrepreneur conquérant, by Jacques Simar
Baron Edouard Empain (1852-1929) is arguably Belgium's most important and internationally orientated business leader of the late 19th and early 20th century.
The book tells about his life and career: he was active in +100 companies, many of which founded by him. Empain is probably best known as the builder of the Paris Metro and the city of Heliopolis (Egypt). Yet, he also managed businesses in Belgium, China, Chili, Congo, Russia, Spain, Syria,...
The second part of the book is basically a scripophily reference catalogue, listing all known scripophily of the Empain Empire. Also, some collecting tips (incl. rarity indications) are given.
The main text is in French, but with extensive summaries in English and Dutch. The full colour book is illustrated with more than 80 certificates.
Available exclusivly from us for €30. Order by simple email to firstname.lastname@example.org
