Welcome to Leu Web Auction 7. After a troublesome end to 2018 with the theft of a part of Web Auction 6, we are now very pleased to be able to present to you our largest web auction yet: up for sale is a selection of no less than 1,900 lots from the ancient, medieval and modern world.
A special highlight of the auction is the offering of two private collections maintained over many years: the first of these is the first part of the collection of Dr Peter Vogl, which has been assembled since the 1980s and comprises a collection of Roman Provincial coins from Asia Minor with a focus on Cilicia. The second is the first part of the collection of Stefan Pozzi, which has been assembled since the 1970s and whose focus is on the Roman imperial series in silver and bronze. Both collections are characterized by the numerous meticulously documented provenances, which, in addition to the respective origins of the coins, also offer a multitude of interesting insights into the numismatic world of the late 20th century.
Please note that due to the large number of lots, we have decided to divide Web Auction 7 into two parts and to auction these off on consecutive days. Part 1, which includes the Greek and Roman provincial coins (lots 1-967), closes on Saturday February 23 from 2 pm CET, while part 2, which includes the Roman, Byzantine, Islamic, Medieval and Modern coins (lots 968-1900), closes on Sunday February 24 from 2 pm CET.
Please note that live bidding is only available on our website and requires an active user account.
Make sure to register in time – it’s worth it!
We hope that you find what you are looking for amongst our offer, and wish you a successful auction.
