HWPH Online Antique Stocks and Bonds Auction

. September 2, 2010 . 0 Comments

HWPH, one of the biggest German scripophily auctioneers, offers more than 600 antique stocks, bonds and related literature within its upcoming auction sales. Due to the success of previous online auctions being in combination with HWPHs regular public auctions this auction on September 5 will be a pure online auction. Powered by InfiniteBidding users are allowed to bid live at home.

As a summer special the auctioneer decided to call the lots with no limits. Therefore all items are starting at a symbolic opening bid of 1 Euro. Even if items selling for hundreds of Euros or Dollars in the past won’t sell for just 1 Euro now the bidders are expected having a lot of fun here and further have chances to make some bargains too.

Due to the recovering US market the auction offer includes more than 100 US items, especially decorative Railroad bonds and stock certificates. Highlights are a 1852 bond of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania or an early 1857 share of the Keokuk, Mount Pleasant & Muscatine Rail Road Company. There are several Railroaders autographs, further a 1861 Volunteer Soldiers Family Aid Fund Bond issued by the City of New York and signed by Fernando Wood as Mayor.

Of course there are other countries represented too: Beside traditional European countries there are also interesting certificates from BRICs like India or China. A special focus could be on an early 1856 share of the East India Coal Company or a rare 1925 Chinese Government Skoda Loan.

Further a part with German items would be of special interest of the German collectors. Finally several of smaller lots and collections might complete the exciting event. Grouped by countries or industries a mixed audience will surely be present then.
