Identification of auction reference

djmacdo:
I have a reference to an auction that puzzles me: "Auct. Laur. 32 April 1985 no. 181."  Can you tell me what "Auction Laur." is?

Mark Fox:
Dear Mac,

Does the cited reference really read "32 April 1985" or does the '32' possibly mean "Auction 32"?  I have so far come up with very little, even after browsing through the Fitzwilliam Museum's list of auction catalogs and fixed price lists:

Altamura:
Numismatik Lanz held his auction 32 on April 29th 1985, so your reference just contained a typo :).

But I didn't find the catalog of this auction online :(.

djmacdo:
Thank you, all!  It could well be Lanz.  The reference is handwritten, and what read as "u" could well be "n."

I would say that the probability that it is not is near zero :).

But perhaps someone else has the catalog and can show us lot 181.
