“Cash for Rares”: “The beating goes to the Eifel”: Waldi wants to know and outdoes himself five times

“It’s a perfect fit: we start the day with a safe,” says Horst Lichter happily as he enters the “Bares für Rares” expert room. There, Sven Deutschmanek is already working on the safe and explaining the rotating mechanisms that can be used to lock it.

Birgit Müller and Hans Gmach from Mainz brought the good piece with them. The two have been a couple for 15 years - and want to get married the next day. The moderator can hardly believe it: "You're getting married tomorrow? I just wanted to ask how long you've been married!"

Gmach's father bought a house in Belgium in 1963 and the safe was in the barn. But the cupboard is significantly older, as Deutschmanek explains. It was made in France around 1870 and is made of fireproof firebrick. Gmach would like 1,500 euros for the empty safe. However, Sven Deutschmanek only thinks 800 to 1000 euros is realistic. The future spouses would also try their luck.

When the safe is unveiled in the dealer's room, Walter "Waldi" Lehnertz shouts with joy: "The beating is going to the Eifel!" When the sellers enter the room, "Waldi" says: "You two have brought something with you that, in theory, is a no-brainer." Daniel Meyer jokingly asks: "Are you a bank robber and want to retire?"

“Waldi” offers 580 euros to start. Julian Schmitz-Avila counters the bid with 720 euros. “I’ll do 1000 straight away so that there’s peace and quiet here,” says Lehnertz. At the price of 1,500 euros, Birgit Müller mentions the upcoming wedding - which motivates "Waldi" to outdo herself several times. He increases to 1600 euros, then to 1650. It continues with 1700, 1750 and 1800 euros. But Schmitz-Avila can't be shaken off and offers 1,900. In the end, the safe goes to the Eifel for 2,000 euros.

The future couple received twice the estimated value and are now even more excited about their wedding.
