“Bares for Rares” dealers can hardly believe their luck: “Get the champagne out”
First for laughter, then for reverent amazement caused a rarity that Dietmar Hauf with “Cash for Rares“ brought. The pensioner from Königsbrunn had two trophies in his luggage.
And they took care of “Cash for Rares“-Moderator Horst Lichter and expert Heide Rezepa-Zabel for a smile. “I’ve always wanted to give you something like that, only bigger,” joked Lichter about the rather stately silver cup. A ball that the expert was happy to pick up. “You can really use it as a make-up mirror,” replied the jewelry expert. After all, its owner had carefully polished the good piece to a high gloss before going to ZDF.
“Bares for Rares”: Old trophies cause awe
So the piece from the German imperial era seemed a touch more magnificent. But the trophy did not come alone. Hauf had also brought a much smaller trophy with him. A lid cup, as Rezepa-Zabel explained. Like its big brother, it is made of silver.
And the condition of the two trophies was excellent. “There are no dents, there are no deep scratches, the gold plating is a bit worn, but I have nothing to complain about,” the expert stated. Well, then nothing stood in the way of a good sale.
Cash for Rares dealers pay more than the estimate
Hauf wanted the two pieces to sell for between 2,500 and 3,000 euros. But Heide didn’t want to estimate that much. According to Rezepa-Zabel, between 2,050 and 2,300 euros are realistic. The 72-year-old seller replied that he would also sell “with a heartache”. So off to the dealers.
And they were amazed when they saw the trophies, which were over 100 years old. The bids quickly exceeded the estimated price and only stopped at 2,700 euros. Christian Vechtel then also paid for it and thus gambled away the praise of his colleagues. Or as David Suppes put it so beautifully: “Bring out the champagne.”
