Our May 6th sale marked another record-breaking auction in the history of our business, in which over $730,000 worth of unique items crossed the auction block. Our top-selling lot, an important financial document signed by Sir Isaac Newton, sold for $106,000.
Earlier this year, we sold two items related to Abraham Lincoln which fetched a combined quarter of a million dollars. A PSA/DNA encapsulated and graded Gem Mint 10 Lincoln signed carte de visite realized $75,000, while a book formative to Lincoln's views on slavery--inscribed and signed by him--changed hands a few lots later for $175,000.
And we do much more than just presidential: in October 2018, we sold Bob Dylan's handwritten and signed lyrics of "The Times They Are A-Changin'" for $132,000, while an Albert Einstein typed letter signed discussing gravitation and time brought just shy of $50,000 in August 2019.
Our monthly auctions attract nearly 6,000 registered online bidders (and counting) from over 60 countries around the world. In business for over 40 years, we have paid out over $200 million for items just like yours.
