Künker eLive Auction 69: Ancient, World Coins and Military Decorations

Künker eLive Auction 69: Ancient, World Coins and Military Decorations

Künker eLive Auction 69 is online. From now on you can study all pieces of the upcoming auction at your leisure.

More than 1,800 lots–from the ancient world to modern times, as well as military orders and decorations–await you on three evenings: Tuesday, 30 November to Thursday, 2 December 2021, starting at 5 pm Central European Time (11 am Eastern Standard Time).

The auction starts late Tuesday afternoon with the ancient coins. This part is filled with many small series of interesting coins; in particular, we refer to the didrachms of Taranto, the silver pieces of Seleucus I (Syria), and Sophytes (Bactria) in different denominations. Among the Roman coins, there are some provincial coinages: they come, for example, from Elaia (Aeolis), Alexandria (Aegyptus), Caesarea (Cappadocia), and Antioch (Syria). The Ayyubid dinars grouped into lots, including Al-Nasir Salah al-din Yusuf bin Ayyub (Saladin), close the illustrious circle of ancient coins.

The medieval and modern coins and medals will follow directly after the ancient coins. We recommend you take a look at a collection of coins from Mainz. Furthermore, we present you with nice pieces from Habsburg as well as a series of Prussian medals.

On Thursday we will devote ourselves entirely to orders and decorations from Germany, Europe, and overseas. On offer will be the seventh part of the Peter Groch collection with decorations and effects of the aviation of the Central Powers in the First World War as well as the Baden collection of Gerhard “Jimmy” Treffeisen. Orders, badges of honor, medals, badges, and small badges from the German states, the German Empire from 1919 to 1945, the Federal Republic of Germany, and a number of German marksmen awards, as well as from European countries and from overseas from other properties are to follow.

We now hope you enjoy studying our eLive Auction 69.
