Auktionshaus Ulrich Felzmann GmbH & Co. KG Sale - 165

Worldwide Philatelic and Numismatics Public Auction - March 5-9, 2019

Numismatics A whole host of numismatic highlights will be going under the hammer at the Auktionshaus Felzmann auction hall in Düsseldorf as part of our 165th auction, which will be held on 5 and 6 March.

These include “Gross-Gold” specimens, the term given in numismatics circles to coins that are worth many times their face value. As Peter Feuser, Head of Numismatics at Auktionshaus Felzmann, explains: “These coins are particularly popular among collectors given that their collector value is far higher than their material value and that they are usually very rare. While they used to be a standard means of payment, they are now minted only for collectors or investors.” They include a very special coin minted in London in 1668. The five guineas coin (Lot 1318), which features a likeness of Charles II, was struck in gold imported from West Africa by the British African Company. This was done to commemorate the 20th year in the reign of Charles II, who ruled from 1660 to 1685, but had already been crowned king in 1649 while in exile in France. The first gold coin was minted in the sixth century BC by order of Lydian king Kroisos, who was known for his wealth. He also inspired the common German phrase “Ich bin kein Krösus” – literally “I’m not Kroisos” – used to indicate that something is too expensive. Incidentally, silver coins were minted even earlier, circa 620 BC.

Coins from China are also very popular. Accordingly, Auktionshaus Felzmann will also be featuring a “Chinese history” representation set (Lot 1901) in its forthcoming auction. This small collection comes in a two-ply wooden box containing almost all original certificates. The 50 coins in the set include ten gold coins and the rare, much sought-after Mao issue.

Spring will be in the air again after a long winter when Auktionshaus Felzmann launches its major Spring Auction in March. Between 7 and 9 March, a selection of philatelic gems will be going under the hammer at our auction hall in Düsseldorf as part of our 165th auction.

As Peter Such, Head of Philately at Auktionshaus Felzmann, explains: “This auction also includes material from a collection built up by a dealer who invested enormous amounts of money in building up interesting stock. There are a total of 1,050 albums that we have divided up into three group lots (Lots 7001, 7002 and 7003). Among other things, these include stamps from France, Russia and the German Empire with an inflation component. If you wish to view the material, we would ask you to sign up beforehand, and also to make sure that you plan in plenty of time for this volume of material.

Also sure to be of great interest is a “moon landing” specimen from Apollo 15, part of the “100 series”, which has also been signed personally by the three astronauts from this mission: David Scott, Alfred Worden and James Irwin.

Lastly, “The System of Terror 1933-1345”, a collection by author and philatelist Claus Geissler, has received regular press coverage. This exceptional collection was already singled out for an award at the S’-HERTOGENBOSCH 2017 international stamp exhibition. The collection is to be wound up in the form of single lots at the start of the philately auction on 7 March. This includes, for example, a card sent by Carl von Ossietsky, one of the best known inmates, to his wife in Hamburg.
