Stack’s Bowers and Ponterio

Stack’s Bowers Hong Kong September auction reached the $30 million mark a second consecutive time. Among the six-figure results stood out a pair of Republic of China Year 10 (1921) “Pavilion” Dollars, and a popular Year 28 (1949) “Bamboo” Dollar in EF-45.

Heritage Auctions

Heritage offered a newly discovered 1870-CC Double Eagle at the Long Beach Expo Coins and Currencies Auctions. It sold for $360,000. The coin auction produced a sell-through rate of 100% by value and by lots, and the currency sale saw many very strong results, too.

Künker, D-Osnabrück

13.6 million euros: that’s the total result of Künker’s Fall Auction Sales. This is almost twice the estimate of about 7 million euros. A remarkable result that was achieved thanks to numerous prices in the six-digit range, including a new record for a Prussian coin!
