Results of our Spring Auction Sales 382-386

Dear bidders and coin enthusiasts,

On Friday at 6.30 pm our Spring Auction Sales ended with a remarkable total hammer price of 15,4 million Euros (not including Buyers Premium). The total estimate of the auctions was once set at 9.1 million Euros. Thus, the more than 4,300 lots improved by almost 70% compared to their set estimate.

In the past seven auction days, we had the pleasure of selling a total of 11 special collections. In all cases it proved once again: Künker is the right address to offer and sell your well-kept special collections. All collections increased significantly in value compared to their estimate. 

We would like to thank our consignors and bidders for the trust they have placed in us.

We are already very much looking forward to our Summer Auction Sales from June 19-23, 2023 here in Osnabrück. We would be especially pleased to welcome as many customers as possible personally in the auction room again.

With best regards from Osnabrück

Dear Coin Enthusiasts,
Dear valued customers around the world,

For the past years we have been compiling interesting articles surrounding our auction sales, the coin trade and the numismatic world in general and have been publishing these in our “newspaper” – the “KÜNKER Exklusiv”. We are happy to present to you here the first edition of the "KÜNKER Exklusiv" in English!

With our large Spring Auction Sale just around the corner, and so many interesting articles surrounding topics like coin provenances we felt this is the right time to present these articles to an even wider audience and our English-speaking customers.

We hope you enjoy reading our latest issue.

With Best Regards from Osnabrück,

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.

Best regards from Osnabrück
