While Russian stocks and bonds still trend up HWPH is proud about offering several rarities here. One of the highlights of course will be the 1898 issued share of the Commercial Bank of Riga – most probably one of the most decorative Russian shares ever been issued. Much older is a very rare bond of “Keizerlijke Bank te St.Petersburg“, the Royal Bank in St. Petersburg. Signed by famous banker and founder J. Poljakow a share of the St. Petersburg-Azow Commercial Bank would be another highlight for collectors and investors.
Collectors of rarities relating to other countries will also find some really nice offers: Highlight is a 1822 issued share with original signature of the famous painter Louis Daguerre. Among a lot of other items US collectors will find a 1876 share of the Centennial International Exhibition (Centennial Board of Finance) or a collection of Confederate States of America bonds.
Of course there are German rarities too: A 1897 issued founder’s share of the famous German”Siemens & Halske” company or an early (1910) share of Julius Berger Tiefbau-AG, a well known German building company, seems to be as attractive as the broad variety of many other stocks and bonds.
Finally there are lot of chances to make some cheaper bargains too. Many lots are set with an opening bid of 1 Euro only! “Of course this matter of fact is very interesting for people ‘hunting’ for good deals”, Matthias Schmitt, CEO of HWPH AG, confirms general thoughts. “Even if items selling for hundreds of Euros or Dollars in the past won’t sell for a buck now”, he adds - “but nevertheless we expect bidders having a lot of fun here.”
