Our March 19 auction proved again a great success. Collectors from all continents participated either through their presence in our auction room, live over the internet or through the use of our absentee bdding facilities. Overall, 58,55% of all items offered found a new owner, resulting of a turnover of 246.326 EUR (incl. sales commission). Unsold items can be purchased in our AFTER SALE until April 24 on a first come, first served basis. See result list (top of menu on the left).
Top item in the auction was a share of the French Compagnie des Indes from 1787 whith fetched 12.000 EUR. Most other top items in the auction were also strongly in demand, for instance the founder share of the Suez Canal (5500 EUR) and the Dampfschiffahrts-Gesellschaft die Adler des Ober-Rheins from Switzerland (4200 EUR, up from 2000 EUR). The unique Antwerp City bond from 1664 was sold for 5200 EUR.
