Результаты Fall Auction Sales - Medieval and Modern Times
25. - 29. сентябрь 2023 | Vienna House Remarque, Osnabrück
Dear bidders and coin friends,
Friday afternoon at 4:45 pm we successfully sold the last lot of our Fall Auction Sales 2023 – the total hammer price was more than 85% greater than the once set estimate. We thank our bidders for the strong auction participation and our consignors for the contagious trust!
However, we were not only pleased about the high hammer prices and exciting bidding battles. The number of bidders present in person in the auction room also increased significantly again. The opinion among the attending customers was unanimous: the internet offers a convenient way to participate in the auction, but the excitement in the auction room and the conversations with other coin enthusiasts on the sidelines of the auction cannot be replaced by the internet.
Our auction week started on Monday with Catalog 391 - Gold Coins from all over the World. The nearly 1,000 gold pieces were highly contested, so the hammer prices added up to an astonishing 3.8 million euros (total estimate for this catalog: 2.3 million euros). Pieces from both the Robert Schuman and "Multiple Portraits" collections were particularly sought after, as you can see from the highlights below. We are pleased to announce even more pieces from these two collections: on November 14, 2023, the ancient gold coins of the Robert Schuman collection will go under the hammer in our floor auction 397. On November 17, 2023, the next part collection "Multiple Portraits" will follow in our eLive Premium Auction 398.
On Tuesday afternoon, the coins from the Dr. Hans-Jürgen Loos collection of the German State Hessen (auction 392) were on the program: The second part of this impressive Hessian collection also enjoyed great popularity: The hammer prices improved on average by 85% compared to the estimate!
We are especially proud of the results of the Dutch coins from the Beuth collection (auction 393). In the first part of the extensive collection we were able to offer almost 1,200 Dutch rarities from 1795 onwards. The pieces, most of them in excellent condition, fetched a total of 5.2 million euros, more than 2.5 times the estimate! Our auctioneer Dr. Andreas Kaiser was particularly pleased with the small coins, some of which were highly contested. His comment was: "German numismatics could only dream of such hammer prices for small coins."
With the last catalog 394 of our Fall Auction Sales we were allowed to present the coins and medals from the Medieval and Modern Times as well as the German coins after 1871. Here, too, numerous pieces from the "Multiple Portraits" collection were on offer, which only changed hands after tough bidding battles. The Coins of City of Trier from the Prof. Dr. Memmesheimer Collection were also very popular among our bidders.
The result of the whole auction week reached 13.4 million euros. The total estimate was 7.2 million euros. We would like to thank our consignors and bidders for the trust they have placed in us.
From November 13-15, 2023, the first part of our Winter Auction Sales 395-397 will take place here in the auction room of the Vienna House Remarque in Osnabrück, we would be pleased to welcome you personally. The second part of the Winter Auctions 398-399 will take place as an eLive Premium Auction on November 17/18, 2023.
But first, you can look forward to the next eLive Auction 79, which will take place on October 16-20, 2023 at www.elive-Auction.de. The auction will be published online there at the end of next week.
With best regards from Osnabrück
