'Collectibles' auction website Catawiki raises 75 million euros

By Yoruk Bahceli

AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - A European company that holds online auctions for "collectibles" such as wine, rare comic books and historical artefacts said on Thursday it had raised 75 million euros ($82 million) from a group of investors led by U.S. group Lead Edge Capital.

The investment is one of the largest in a Dutch start-up company and comes despite some industry watchers saying the market for online auction sites has become saturated following the success of companies such as eBay and Priceline.
