our April 14th auction is now online !

This was again a very remarkable auction, not in the least as it set tthis year's top price paid for an old piece of scripophily at 26.000 EUR. This was the amount paid for a 1704 share in the French Compagnie Royale de l'Assiente, a slave trading company founded by the French and Spanish Kings.

Several other highlights, countries and themes sold very well too. Most notably rare Russian items, Indochina, Spanish 18th century stocks and the share in America's first theatre company.

The full result list is now available, see menu on the left. Our aftersale service for unsold lots is now running, and ends on May 14. First come, first served!

Many thanks to all participants in this great auction!

best regards,

Mario
