Dear friends and collectors,
Welcome to our 52nd auction. The results of our 51st auction, which can be viewed on our website were excellent and show a stable market eager for better items in most specialties.
This is our last auction. During the past 33 years we have dealt with hundreds of vendors and serviced thousands of bidders worldwide. We thank all for the full trust they have given us.
We are also very proud of helping build many collections, some of which reached the highest levels in international shows.
It is with great sorrow that we remember the untimely demise of Zvi Aloni z.l.
Zvi died on September 10 2022, at the age of 74, after a short cancer illness.
He will be greatly missed by his family and many friends.
May he rest in peace.
This auction is highlighted by 2 Large Gold Medals collections: Holyland Forerunners (incl. Colonies) part 2 and 1948 Doar Ivri.
Other specialties are well represented culminating with a fine section of banknotes.
With all good and sincere wishes,
