Great atmosphere at our 55th auction !

Collectors around the world were present in our new Brussels auction location, conviently located 200M from the railroad station and the famous Grand Place, the heart of Brussels. This 3-day event turned out to be a great success, and we are most grateful to the entire collectors community for their participation.

The top lots were the French Compagnie de Guyane which fetched 22.000 EUR and the more speculative lot consisting of 36 LTUH bonds (selling for 24.000 EUR). Overall, we saw a very strong Asian section (Japan sold 100%, Indochina 79% and China 96%). There was also a lot of interest in scripophily from the African continent, a rather recent tendency in scripophily. 

The classic countries in our auction performed rather well, for instance France selling for 62%, Germany 57%, Great Britain 55%, Russia 53% and Belgium 51%. Pieces from the United States were less wanted (38% sold). Overall, we noticed a high demand for true top pieces with no less than 46 lots selling between 1000 and 24.000 EUR.

Until November 26, the so far unsold items can be obtained in our classic After Sale period. Click result list on the top of the left menu to see which certificates are still available. With 2000 lots initially offered, there are still several hidden treasures to be found.

Yours sincerely,

Mario Boone - The Scripophily Center
