Since the year 1840, when stamps began to fascinate mankind, millions of collectors throughout the world have spent much of their time with these little precious, colourful objects. The habits and the preferences of the collectors have been changing continuously, depending on the current trends.
Some topics became suddenly popular, while others were neglected and forgotten.
The ability to sense and respond to these changing trends, combined with the highest level of expertise are unconditional prerequisites for anyone wishing to operate successfully in this specialised field.
When in 1929 Edgar Mohrmann, a businessman from Lübeck, Germany, founded a stamp auction company nobody could forsee that his firm would gain international recognition within a decade, despite all the political upheaval and world instability at that time.
After 180 auctions over the past 70 years, where many valuable rarities have changed hands, a specialised market-place now exists in which both buyers and sellers can have the upmost confidence.
Edgar Mohrmann's work has helped the stamp to become known as "the small man's investment shares".
In 1962 the well known magazine "Der Spiegel" dedicated a 12 page cover story to Edgar Mohrmann.
After his death in October 1964 the company was run by other well-known names in the branch, such as Wolfgang Jakubek, Manfred Mylius and Ekkehard Lambrecht all of whom were fascinated by and dedicated to this field.
Today the firm is being run in the same tradition by Hans-Peter Bahr.
70 years after the company began, it is still a market leader and its name stands for good auction results, professionalism and discretion.
