Siempre es interesante saber como nos ven desde fuera. En este caso, de un foro norteamericano de los USSA, opinando sobre tres – 3 – casas de subastas españolas

I wasn’t quite sure which I liked the most so I went through my records on the three Spanish auction houses that I’ve bought from and calculated some statistics based on my satisfaction with the coins purchased. The number of coins from each ranged between 17 and 26. Almost all went to NGC, with a few subsequently sent to PCGS hoping for better results. A couple had such obvious problems that I did not bother to submit them for grading.
Soler y Llach ——- 33.33% unsatisfied / 47.62% satisfied / 19.05% 😀
Aureo & Calico—– 35.29% unsatisfied / 47.06% satisfied / 17.65% 😀
Cayón Subastas — 30.77% unsatisfied / 46.15% satisfied / 23.08% 😀
The unsatisfied category is for undocumented problem coins. Satisfied is for coins that graded at expected levels, were documented problem coins or problem coins acquired at low bids. is the category for the ones that were superior quality or value.
Given the sample size, I assess my stats at pretty even across the three houses. Sorry to take this off topic since this is about buying from Spanish auction houses and not consigning to them, but I thought my results might interest others.
Thank You Jack
