Results 16th Auktion
SCHLEGEL AUCTIONS was very pleased with the response to its 16th auction. The sale displayed a wide array of philately and especially saw enthusiastic bidding for collections and estates on the two auction days.
Both the sales of the special sections MONTEVIDEO (Lots 1-108) and PORTUGAL achieved strong results, and were highlighted by outstanding performances of several lots. Within the PORTUGAL section, we were particularly pleased with the selective but good response, exemplified by the results for lot 214, a scarce horizontal strip of three (hammer price 2,400 EUR) and lot 228, a rare and fine multiple of 20 stamps, which achieved a result of 4,160 EUR (incl. provision + fees).
The auction witnessed an eager appetite for collections and estates, bidders honored once again quality and moderate opening prices. Successful examples included lot 800 (German colonies, opening 6,000 EUR) with a result of 9,750 EUR, lot 684 (Deutsches Reich, opening 4,400 EUR) for 6,420 EUR as well as lot 1258 (opening 4,500 EUR) for 8,330 EUR. From the sale of our RUSSIA/SOVIET UNION collections we were – despite a strong demand in our presale viewing – still surprised by the fierce bidding, highlighted by lot 1475 (opening 5,000 EUR), which was fiercely sought after and ultimately realized a result of 46,400 EUR. Thanks to our Overseas and Russian bidders!
The 16th auction saw a successful finale with its single lot offers. Wide-ranging demand and good realizations for rare values were once again guaranteed. A registered cover VÄRNAMO provisional with 55 Ö. pale blue and 80 Ö. (Lot 2741, opening 2,500 EUR) performed well and realized 6,600 EUR. Also, a German Post in Turkey, 20 PA on 10. Pfg., a rare shade red color inspired enthusiasm und jumped all the way up to 7,140 EUR. The offer FRANCE/FRENCH COLONIES also saw top prices, with lot 1893 (result 2,500 EUR), a very rare French-Congo provisional “Valeur 5”, leading this section.
