The latest catalogs to arrive come from HWPH (Historisches Wertpapierhaus AG). Once again, Matthias Schmitt is offering some nice certificates including a 40-piece collection of American Express certificates, with about half signed by James Fargo.
The focus of this sale is primarily German material and to a lesser extent, Russian certificates. However, as usual, Herr Schmidt offers a substantial number of North American certificates. Of the 1,996 lots in the sale, 248 are North American (including Central America and Cuba.) Of that number, 63 lots are single-item railroad certificates plus 6 more multi-item lots.
As usual, the sale is divided into three catalogs. Auktion 35 and ’50 Highlights’ is the live auction to be held on Saturday, October 18, 2014 in Wiesbaden. The live sale totals 898 lots. Auktion 36 is the online auction and includes 1,098 lots. You may see the entire sale online at http://www.hwph.de/. Unlike most auctions, HWPH online images are large enough to see details.
To give you an idea of the selection, I have included names of all North American railroads involved in the sales.
Please contact HWPH online or at +49-81-06-24-61-88 to get copies of catalogs from the sale.
