THE MOST EXPENSIVE SHARE EVER AUCTIONED: 120.000 EUR

Our most recent auction (16 Oct. 2021) broke the world record for highest price ever paid for a historic share! After fierce bidding, 120.000 EUR (+20,57% auction commission) was paid for the French share in the Compagnie des Indes Orientales (French East India Co.). Its very early date, 1665, makes it also the oldest share ever auctioned. The company was founded in Paris by First MInister of State Jean-Baptiste Colbert with the strong backing of King Louis XIV. For over a century, It was the main French trading company with Asia. It is the first time a share, as a collectible, fetches a price above the 100.000 EUR mark.

Also the other 1365 lots in the auction attracted a lot of interrest. See result list (menu on the left). No less than 37 items sold for +1000 EUR. Unsold items can still be purchased during the after sale period until November 14 on a first come, first served basis.

Our next auction will take place in April 2022. We accept consignments of rare individual items as well as interesting collections from now until the end of 2021.
