Results Summer Auction Sales 2018
18. - 21. June 2018 | Steigenberger Hotel Remarque, Osnabrück
Dear Bidders and Coin Enthusiasts,
We were especially pleased to be able to offer a wide selection of remarkable rarities from the various special collections that were entrusted to sell. We want to take this opportunity to mention a few of those collections: the Wiegrebe Collection (coins from Lippe), the Popken Collection (coins from Brunswick Lüneburg) and of course the Genaert Collection (coins from the southern Netherlands) which kicked off the exciting four day sale.
The rarities and superb qualities that the collectors managed to assemble - in some cases over the course of multiple decades - sparked enormous interest amongst our bidders and led to a full auction room here in Osnabrück. Overall we were very pleased to have been trusted with written bids from more than 2000 bidders and furthermore welcome over 300 bidders here in the auction room.
Beside the already mentioned collections, the series of Chinese and Austrian coins made for some exciting bidding in the room as well as some amazing results. Especially the beautiful and historically highly interesting gold coins from the Holy Roman Empire proved to be very popular with collectors.
The good atmosphere in the auction room and the high level of interest from our bidders all over the world also reflects in the overall hammer price from this sale. The roughly 4500 lots in the sale were estimated with a total of 5.7 Mio Euros and were finally sold altogether for a remarkable hammer price of 8.3 Mio Euros in total.
We would like to thank you, our customers, for your participation and for your trust in us!
We are looking forward to welcome you to our Fall Auction Sales in October.
Best regards from Osnabrück,
