In subsequent years Franz Hermann and Thomas Rief also became partners and cemented the dynamic leadership of the company which exists today.

Tra gli ottimi risultati registrati durante la vendita di oggetti militari e storici da Hermann Historica, il riconoscimento più importante va a un dipinto fiammingo del XVII secolo, di autore sconosciuto. Un risultato davvero sorprendente.
