Dear bidders and coin enthusiasts,

Friday afternoon, shortly before 4 pm the first part of this years Fall Auction Sales ended. After five successful days, we are extremely pleased about a strong overall hammer price of 9.7 million euros (not including Buyers Premium) for this first part of the auction (estimate for this part: 5.1 million euros). 

We thank our bidders and consignors for the trust they have placed in us!

From Tuesday, October 18, until Friday, October 21, we are looking forward to one of the most extensive and exciting auctions of ancient coins we have ever had the pleasure of presenting.

Best regards

The Mark and Lottie Salton Collection

Dear bidders and coin enthusiasts,

On the occasion of the auction of the Salton Collection, we have compiled the story of the Hamburger-Schlessinger coin dealer dynasty in a brochure as well as in a podcast.

Mark Salton (1914-2005) came from probably the most important dynasty of German coin dealers before the First World War. Behind the American name Mark Salton was Max Schlessinger, son of Felix Schlessinger (1879-1944), who was himself a nephew of Leo Hamburger the Younger (1846-1929). Together with his cousin Leo Hamburger the Elder (1836-1902), Leo Hamburger the Younger built up the most important German coin shop of the era before the First World War.
