You have inherited a collection or want to sell it? We would be happy to advise you.

Stamps are your passion? Then you are right with us.

The Swiss Federal Council has forbidden all public demonstrations until at least April 19, 2020.
As a result, both the inspection of the lots and the holding of a public auction cannot take place.

Therefore we postpone our 65th auction until further notice.
Furthermore, our premises are generally closed until at least April 19, 2020.
