Several tens of thousands of reference books and philatelic catalogs are stored in a total of seven rooms, accessed by our specialists in processing the objects consigned. Adding to this, online resources and the company’s own database make certain that the evaluations are always up-to-date and in line with current market developments. Naturally, archives are also indispensable for doing reliable and thorough research. In compressed form, they are a literal treasure trove of knowledge and contribute to a perfect processing of the material.
