Historical items have been around for as long as history itself, but it hasn’t been viewed upon as a personal enjoyment or as investments until recent years. It’s very seldom to invest in fully unique and one-of-a-kind type of assets as everything from business shares to gold bars are available in high units. For instance, by buying Ernest Hemingway’s 1954 Nobel Prize medal, you know that it’s the only one of its kind in the world. That’s a very strong selling point as top collectors and investors want to purchase unique items.

Another unique selling point with the items that we offer is that their value is generally not affected at all by financial crises. We know by experience and public record that the value of high-end collectibles is increasing year-by-year. The reason is somewhat simple – there will always be wealthy people and people of high dignitary that want nothing but the best. So when we talk about quality, it’s not only in terms of the item being very essential in a historical point-of-view but also solid in an investment point-of-view. In brief, one could say that the items that we offer are solid investments and incredibly important and wonderful game-changing historical pieces.

Another alternative to the above, which we only accept with items surpassing a value of $50,000 USD, is to consign. Meaning that you send the item to us, we sell it for you and take an agreed commission percentage. The consignor receives the money within 10 days after the sale. This is usually the act of an auction house, with the exception that we take far less in commission and have a much faster pay-off.
