eLive Auction 26
Künker eLive Auction 26 from 11 to 13 February 2014
Shortly after the Berlin sale of auction house Künker, the company’s 26th eLive Auction was conducted at https://elive-auction.de from 11 to 13 February 2014.
The about 1,000 items were sold at a hammer price of € 270,000 on a pre-sale estimate of € 100.000. There was not a single lot left unsold, and contrary to the expected two hours that are usually required to sell the coins, this eLive Auction took four to five hours due to high demand.
Particularly noteworthy were the series of coins from Brandenburg-Prussia and Brunswick-Lüneburg as well as a number of so-called Goetz medals, i.e. medals created by well-known Munich medalist Karl Goetz. In addition, eLive auction no. 26 included roughly 200 coins of the German Empire that likewise achieved remarkable results.
