To minimize the disruption caused by Brexit, Naville Numismatics has recently opened the NAC new office in Brussels. From now on, the auction house kindly asks all European Clients who prefer to receive their auction purchases directly from within Europe, to inform the company, when registering for the sale, that they would like to place their bids through NAC Europe Srl. This company will represent any registered clients by proxy at Naville’s auctions, without applying any additional charges other than shipping costs (within Europe), and the Belgian Import VAT from outside EU, which is set at 6%.
