Our January Auction Sales 358-359
26. January 2022 | Vienna House Remarque, Osnabrück
Dear bidders and coin enthusiasts,
The catalogs of our upcoming January auction sales are ready for you online.
On Wednesday, 26 January 2022 we will hold our auctions 358 and 359 at the Vienna House Remarque in Osnabrück. As always at the beginning of the year a firework of rarities from all over the world has been prepared for you. The total estimate of the more than 800 lots adds up to a total of 7 million euros.
In the two auctions, you can expect a varied offer of great rarities mainly from Germany. These include selected Löser from the Friedrich Popken collection, gold coins from Bavaria and other numerous rarities.
With catalog 358 we present "German Coins - Highlights from the Annemarie and Gerd Köhlmoos Collection". The spectrum ranges from Anhalt to Würzburg, from roman bracteates to the Renaissance coins and impressive talers of the Baroque period to the purist coinage of the Enlightenment. Auction 359 begins with 63 rarities of magnificent Bavarian gold coins and medals from an Upper Bavarian private collection from Staffelsee. From Wilhelm V. to the fairy tale king Ludwig II. the temporal bow spans. This is followed by another section of Lösers from the Friedrich Popken collection as well as rarities from the Medieval and Modern times from all over the world. The catalog ends with a small, fine selection of eight lots with orders, among them an outstanding example of the High Order of the Black Eagle, made during the reign of Friedrich Wilhelm IV, which was awarded to Lieutenant General Ernst von Pfuel (1779-1864) in a private audience on January 18, 1844.
We hope you now enjoy studying our auctions.
Best regards from Osnabrück
Your Künker Team
PS: On February 1 and 2, we will auction online in our eLive Premium Auction 360 "Coins and Medals from the Medieval and Modern Times in Premium Qualities - The Collection of an Aesthete".
At the time of printing this catalogue, it was not yet clear whether the infection situation in Osnabrück would allow us to hold our auction with bidders present, to hold our auction with bidders present in person. This will only become clear shortly before the auction. We will therefore inform you about this in our newsletter and of course on our website from Wednesday, 19 January 2022.
