Inaugural Auction of Technical Firsts in Cologne, Germany

Köln, (lifePR) - The world's first television set (lot 341), invented by the Scottish pioneer John Logie Baird in 1925 (estimate: 20-30.000 Euro/22-32,000 US$), the first fax machine (lot 46) by the American inventor Dr. Otho Fulton the same year (estimate: 2-3.000 Euro/2,200-3,200 US$) and a prototype colour television set (lot 344) from the laboratory of PAL-System developer, Professor Walter Bruch of Hannover, (estimate: 4-7.000 Euro/4,300-7,500 US$) are just three of the highlights in Auction Team Breker's sale of Milestones of Telecommunication on 18 April 2015.

Also included in the 500-lot auction are historical telephones, telegraphs, radio receivers and unique valves such as the only known original Braun's Cathode Ray Tube of 1900, the 'grandfather' of all TV valves.

Of particular note is a German 'Enigma' machine of 1939, lot 7 (estimate 20-30.000 Euro/22-32,000 US$), the fiendishly complex cyphering system capable of producing 22 billion (!!) codes through purely mechanical means and still the subject of television and film today!

The online catalogue for the first-ever auction dedicated to telecommunication is available at:
