eLive 26: Medieval and Modern Coins and Medals / Library of Herbert Kreindler Part II
Part II of the library of Herbert Kreindler at Künker eLive 26
Over the course of the past two years, the eLive auctions of Künker have become established to such an extent that many collectors can hardly imagine anymore doing without. This holds particularly true when – like in eLive 26 – it is all about especially interesting material, offered at such reasonable estimates.
2205: Brandenburg. Albert the Bear, 1134-1157. Bracteate, Wegeleben. Berger 1755. Thormann 23. R. VF-EF. Estimate: 300 euros.
More than 1,000 coins and medals will be sold on 11th and 12th February 2014. Available are lots from Europe, the oversea countries, the Holy Roman Empire and Germany – ranging from the Middle Ages to the German Federal Republic and the German Democratic Republic.
2318: Prussia. Provincial coin for the Mark Brandenburg. 1/24 thaler 1753 F, Magdeburg. Kluge 181.2. Old. 169. EF. Estimate: 25 euros.
The biggest part comes from Germany with an important series of more than 300 lots from Brandenburg-Prussia. You may partake with as little as 20 euros.
The sale’s second part, to be conducted on 13th February 2014, is particularly likely to arouse great interest. Part II of the library of internationally renowned coin dealer Herbert Kreindler will be liquidated, in cooperation with Kolbe & Fanning, an auction house specialized in numismatic literature. Roughly 800 lots mainly books on ancient numismatics will be for sale. The catalog includes very important standard works any dealer, collector and scholar seriously involved in numismatics would like to call his own.
The 200 meaningfully assembled lots comprising auction sale catalogs are worth mentioning, too. The well-known names alone make the coin aficionado wax lyrical: Robert Ball, Adolph Cahn, Louis Ciani, Brüder Egger, Leo Hamburger, Otto Helbing, Adolph Hess, Jacob Hirsch, Eugen Merzbacher, Karl Kreß, Clément Platt, Rodolfo Ratto, Sally Rosenberg. Let alone the collections: collection Sir Arthur Evans, Conte Alessandro Magnaguti, Edward Sydenham, Franz Trau, Apostolo Zeno, the doublets of the Münzkabinett Berlin from the acquisition of Dr. Imhoof-Blumer Collection, the doublets of the Coin Cabinet of the Germanisches Nationalmuseum in Nuremberg, or the Fürstenbergisches Münzkabinett zu Donaueschingen – to name but a few.
Thus, browsing through the auction sale catalog pays off. It can be found at the internet, or you may request a printed copy of it at Künker, Gutenbergstrasse 23, D-49 076 Osnabrück; phone: 0541 / 96 20 20; fax: 0541 / 96 20 222; or via email.
