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.
The auction occurs publicly, voluntarily, on behalf of and for the account of a third party or third parties against immediate payment in € (euros) on the basis of the German Auction Regulation in the respectively valid version thereof in force.
The auctioneer receives a commission from the buyer amounting to 20 % of the hammer price. Original costs incurred for postage, packaging and insurance shall be charged to the buyer and invoiced. The currently valid rate in effect for value-added tax (VAT) amounting to 19 % shall be levied on this surcharge as well as on ancillary costs incurred. On those lots in the auction catalogue marked with a "*", the statutory value-added tax shall be additionally levied on the hammer price. Clients from countries within the European Union pay the value-added tax in Hamburg, except for dealers holding a registered VAT identification number. For purchases made from abroad outside of the EU that we ship abroad directly, the value-added tax is omitted.
Re: European Community: Buyers from partner countries within the European Community that have identified themselves as entrepreneurs must tax the purchase made within the Community in the respective partner country. In the case of non-entrepreneurs, the German statutory sales tax shall be invoiced when the situation deals with dealer merchandise subject to the regular VAT regime/system (provided that our delivery threshold or quota for the respective purchasing country is not exceeded). The reversed-charge-method is to be applied for the abovementioned commsission.
