in the Schingoethe sale today. I had hoped to get away for $5000., then adjusted it more appropriately to 13 and ended up spending 25!!

I was the first one to call to make arrangements to bid by phone. I was given bidder #1. That and a $ will get you a cup of coffee somewhere in America.

And what did you get for your $25?

Actually the ratio of 25/5 was about equal to the ratio of "realized"/"low estimate".

The online bidding actually went quite well today. Unfortunately I had to use my PC instead of my Mac to use SpinkLive.

I got notes from Lansingburgh, Troy, and Watevliet. I really paid for some of the Troy notes!!
