Dear bidders and coin enthusiasts,
with great success endedon Thursday afternoon at 5 pm our 350th auction sale! We would like to thank our bidders and consignors from the bottom of our hearts for the great trust you have once again placed in us!
We would also like to thank you for the numerous congratulations on our 50th company anniversary, which we are celebrating exactly today. The company “Fritz Rudolf Künker Münzenhandlung e.K.” was registered on 1 July 1971, which means that the Künker company has existed for exactly 50 years as of today!
In order to be able to celebrate this anniversary with you in a fitting manner, we had actually postponed the auction by one week and placed it in this exact week. A big celebration was planned for you our dear customers tomorrow. Unfortunately, for well-known reasons, this planned event had to be cancelled, so that we only were able to celebrate in a small circle. Therefore, we were especially pleased that many of our dear customers and colleagues congratulated us to the anniversary.
We were especially pleased that we were again able to welcome customers back in the room for this sale. Unfortunately, this was not possible since the last summer auction sale in June of 2020. That you nevertheless remained loyal to us and participated in our sales makes us feel incredibly honored.
The lively participation in the auction room, on the phones, via the internet and by written pre-bids resulted in a total hammer price of 8.3 million euros, well above the estimate of 5.8 million euros.
We look forward to welcoming you to our fall auctions in Osnabrück on September 27. There you can already expect a nice ensemble of numismatic highlights from all over the world - among others the second part of the Tesmer Collection with rarities from Brandenburg Prussia as well as the Schwarz Collection with more than 1000 mainly German gold coins.
