The “Cash for Rares” expert classified the picture as “priceless for a fan,” not knowing that the fan was sitting right next door in the dealer's room, barely able to contain his enthusiasm.

Great enthusiasm in the dealers' room: a unique and extremely rare piece of art found its way into Horst Lichter's junk show “Bares für Rares”. One dealer couldn't stop haggling and was happy with the high bids. Horst Lichter was not quite so euphoric when he looked at the work in the expert's office: “We have something there, I don't expect it to be art. Then he discovered the written elements: “But with correspondence.”

The salesman Uli explained it to him. The artwork came from BAP musicians Manfred “Schmal” Boecker and Wolfgang Niedecken. “He wrote the original text of the song “AhlMEN, aallatt” that day,” Uli pointed to the handwriting. “And on the same day, his band member Schmal Boecker found all the banknotes he had from his travels in his wallet,” he made a collage and painted the world on it. “With the title: “Wat koss die Welt”.

Horst Lichter listened attentively to the explanations and came to the conclusion: “For me, this is now real art.” Art expert Colmar Schulte-Goltz could only agree: “That's it. It's a combined work of art.” It was written in 1985, and the song written here became a big hit a year later. “If it's an original lyric, of course it's something that's priceless to a fan, and of course you have to find it,” says Schulte-Goltz.

Uli had bought the artwork for DM 1,500 from Art Cologne in 1987: “If I could get 1,000 euros now, Schulte-Goltz would be happy with even 2,700-3,000 euros: “His original and unique works are rare.” Wolfgang Pauritsch also knew this. When Uli walked into the dealer's room, he immediately asked, “Is that Wolfgang Niedecken?” To his “yesss,” he thought the picture was “crazy” and wanted to know the purchase price at the time 1,500 marks,” revealed Uli.

“I think it's incredible! It's a one-of-a-kind piece,” said Pauritsch, who could hardly contain his enthusiasm. The reason: “I once bought a pair of jeans from Wolfgang Niedecken that he wore to a concert, and I got so many calls who wanted them. they wanted jeans.” . However, the competition persisted diligently. When Elke Velten was already hoping for a winning bid of 2,700 euros, Pauritsch quickly shouted: “I offer you four times more than you paid, I offer 3,000 euros!”

Velten rose, Pauritsch too: “3200 euros! I love this man!” And of course: “His name is Wolfgang!” Then Velten conceded defeat. “He's so likable, he's so normal, he makes good music!” Pauritsch said cheerfully. “It's as big as Falco in Austria!”

'Money for rares': Bogart and Monroe figures fetch more than four times estimated price

One dealer also raved about a box of Miele bicycle parts from the 1940s or 50s, valued by an expert at €150-€250. Since he himself has an old Miele bicycle, Markus Wildhagen bought the set for 150 euros.

A Meissen porcelain cooling set from the 1880s was worth €380-€420 due to damage. Since no one in the dealership recognized the intended use, interest grew. “Well, I haven't seen it before,” Markus Wildhagen also grabbed this rarity for 450 euros.

Two standing figures from the late 1980s, Humphrey Bogart and Marilyn Monroe, were estimated at €80-100. The price went up quickly because everyone wanted the figures. Walter Lehnertz paid an incredible 450 euros to present his flyers.

A four ducat coin bracelet from the 1950s was valued at 2,800-3,000 euros. At 2,800 euros, the sales couple and David Suppes quickly agreed: “Excellent condition, great length.”

Gold jewelry with opals and pearls from the 1970s or 80s was estimated at 800-1000 euros. Wolfgang Pauritsch bought two pieces of jewelry for 800 euros: “I really like the pendant and the bracelet is also beautiful.”
