Noble Numismatics

Ein Besuch der Auktion australischen Auktionshaus Noble Numismatics war mir leider nicht möglich, aber die Menge der historischen Wertpapiere rechtfertigt einen kleinen Bericht. Vom 24.- 27. November 2009 wurden neben Münzen und Geldscheinen auch eine Reihe von Wertpapieren angeboten. Mit erstaunlichen Ergebnissen und der Erkenntnis, dass der Versteigerer nicht immer Spaß an den teuren Stücken hat.
