Dassiers 10 roubles receive highest hammer price for a single lot in the company history

The Felzmann auction house received a significant consignment for the 2022 autumn auction. Among numerous other exciting numismatic rarities was a historic 10 rouble piece based on a design by Jean Dassier from 1757. Today, many art historians and numismatists consider his work to be among the most important of its time.

The extraordinarily rare coin of Russia with the portrait of Tsarina Elisabeth caused enthusiasm in the auction house and also among interested bidders. The tension in the auction room was almost palpable.

Four telephone bidders were ready and bids were also made in the room. After a heated bidding battle, the hammer finally fell on the auction desk by auctioneer Peter B. Feuser at the top hammer price of 260,000 euros. The coin thus goes to a new collector who can rejoice over the particularly beautiful specimen, which was only recently graded at NGC with a condition of AU 55. After the auction, there was also a toast in the auction room to the winning bid.
