New fantastic auction coming up !

Our next auction will take place on Saturday 21 October. We will publish the catalogue here on 25 September. 

You can expect a usual 'Boone catalogue' with many previously unseen pieces from all over the world, from the early 18th century right until nowadays.

This time, we have several highlight pieces: no less than 5 shares & bonds for which bidding starts between 7.000 and 28.000 EUR (Belgian Congo, China, France, Great Britain. Russia).

Furthermore, we can offer several top collections, for instance from Turkey/the Ottoman Empire, Israel/Palestine and early US turnpikes, 

Finally, we feel most privileged to offer, in a separate catalogue, the finest collection of Belgian banknotes ever auctioned anywhere. This part of the auction will take place on Saturday evening (starting 18h).

If you are not sure whether you are on our mailing list for receiving a printed version of the auction catalogue, now is the time to email us for a free copy: mario.boone@skynet.be

best regards,

Mario
