Collectors can look forward to the large Autumn Auction at Hermann Historica, with almost 9000 objects, more than ever before, in the sales programme. In addition to the two firearms catalogues for the live and online auctions, the auction house's remaining areas of expertise fill an amazing 10 catalogues from antique arms and armour to military history and contemporary history. On the first two days, 11 and 12 November, a total of 1530 firearms are to come under the hammer in a classic live auction, while a further 842 weapons will be offered for sale in an online-only auction on 25 November.
Place your bids for the live auction in the saleroom, on the telephone, in writing or online via your computer, tablet or smartphone with an internet connection. Bids for the online auction may be submitted via the internet or in writing. Speaking of the internet: all objects will also be available on the well-known platforms Invaluable, Lot-tissimo, The Salesroom and LiveAuctioneers. To save the fees charged by these platforms, simply register on Hermann Historica's own online platform.
This auction has a spectacular highlight in store for aficionados of early systems: lot number 46, probably the largest group of guns from a royal armoury that is still in private ownership today. Made by the finest gunmakers of the time for Duke George I of Braunschweig-Lüneburg, who also reigned as King of England, the 32 weapons are in fantastic condition. This prize would make even Her Majesty the Queen green with envy! Admittedly, with a six-figure asking price, the group does not come cheap, but it is worth every penny.
