On Wednesday and Thursday, 19 & 20 April 2023, our 231st auction for stamps, coins and postal history will take place with an attractive offer of 3,553 lots of international philately and numismatics.

For our 231st auction we received many interesting and substantial consignments from a wide range of collecting areas from Germany to overseas.

 The Old German states (over 1,220 lots) deserve special mention this time, including the Duchy of Brunswick and the Kingdom of Hanover with rare stamps such as Brunswick No. 13 A in cabinet condition, Oldenburg with selected quality items, Saxony with two “Sachsen Dreier”, one of which has a rare cancellation from “GROSSENHAYN” (so far only known twice on this stamp), furthermore Saxony with the resolution of a beautiful special collection “Nachverwendete Sachsen-Stempel auf Brustschild-Belegen” and many more.

As a small sensation we offer with lot 3284, a collection of original contract and postal documents between the Duchy of Brunswick-Lüneburg and the Principality of Thurn & Taxis from 1616 – 1792 on the execution of the princely postal service in Brunswick, apparently a new discovery, starting price €2,500.

Furthermore, the German Reich with rarities such as No. 81 Bb,No. 96 BII aW (watermark rings) and a beautifully stamped Nothilfe Block “genuine and perfect”, over 350 lots of German colonies and foreign post offices with very well developed stamp parts, postal-historically interesting documents and stamp peculiarities, as well German foreign mail China with the rare 1st printing of the “Futschau provisional 5 pf on 10 pf” (Michel no. 7IA), large colonial rarities from the formerly German Caroline Islands (bisection, cash franking, hand stamp provisional) as well as top values and rare variants of many other colonial areas.

The collection department includes around 350 lots, mostly untouched items, collections and estates, including the liquidation of a substantial inventory “All World” from a former mail order supplier, numerous large stocks as well as valuable coin collections, investment and collector coins from over 2300 years of coin history.
