Proprietor and Auctioneer
The GÖTZ auction company was founded in 1975 and can look back on a steadily increasing turnover in recent years. These results contributed to the fact that our company occupies a top position among stamp auction companies. For this, I would like to thank you, our customers. You place your trust in us, appreciate our efficiency and the acknowledged good service.
The investments in the last years, especially in the area of the office building newly built in 1994 with sufficient space, have brought decisive impulses for the development and will help to determine the future of the auction house GÖTZ.
However, the capital of our company is our highly motivated employees. They have all made a significant contribution to this positive result. I am proud of my employees, and it fills me with joy that most of them have already gone through their training at GÖTZ.
You can be assured that we will not rest on these laurels, but will constantly strive to do even better.
Record prices at Götz auctions
The auction house GÖTZ is always good for surprises, as recently covered in a national daily newspaper. The writer of the article is right. The monthly hammer prices alone often cause the blood pressure of the respective consignor to skyrocket. We regularly reach a tenfold of the desired prices and more. Of course, much to the delight of the former owners. Also and especially for large pieces and collections GÖTZ has the “right” clientele. 3 lots of our past auctions would like to serve as an example: *all hammer prices always plus buyer’s premium.
In 1992, we brought the “FARINA” stock under the hammer. An impressive cover lot, which was valued at 150.000,- DM. After fierce bidding, the lot achieved the round sum of 500,000 DM plus the usual surcharges.
In 1993, we auctioned the already legendary BADEN collection of the fashion king Hubert Boschert, the most expensive collection ever auctioned worldwide. The collection was sold for 350,000 DM, 7 persons were bidding up to 600,000 DM, and only at one million DM the collection was sold to a collector. Hubert Boschert was present at the auction with his wife Beate and could not believe the high prices…
… with the DOUBLE SHEET of the Bavarian Black One we had a very special rarity. Set at DM 500,000 and only knocked down at DM 880,000, we thus achieved the highest auction hammer price worldwide in 1992 and ranked no. 1 ahead of Christie’s New York.
If you want to entrust your stamps and “treasures” to an auction house, then you will find the right partner in the auction house Götz.
