40th International Scripophily Auction Antwerp , par Mario Boone le 13/03/2008 13:27

Dear collector,

On March 29th, our 40th auction of historic shares & bonds will take place. We offer 1809 different lots from some 90 different countries. Start prices vary from €20 to €22.000, including 60 exceptional lots with start prices 1000 euro and upwards. We begin the auction with a unique old collection of Russian Scripophily, good for 489 lots. The top piece however comes from Germany : the Ilmenauer Kupfer & Silber Bergwerk, an extremely rare mining share from 1784 and hand-signed by Johann W. von Goethe. He is not only the German Shakespeare, but also an important politician and a natural scientist of world class.

The complete auction catalogue is available on http://www.booneshares.com, as well as the full program of the 2 day event – including Europe's biggest Scripophily bourse on Sunday March 30th and an IBSS sponsored breakfast with a lecture on Belgian/European companies in Tsarist Russia by Daniel Stevens, vice-president of the Belgian Chamber of Commerce for Russia.
