Fifth Mail Auction Lots

Fifth Mail Auction Report

Our fifth auction had 30 bidders, 18 were successful and of the 72 lots offered, all but 9 were sold.  Several members made some nice additions to their collections at bargain prices.

There were several ties, In that case the lot went to the earliest bid received (if by mail, the postmark mailing date). There were some hot lots, those generated maximum bids of 3, 4 or in one case over 10 times the opening bid.  A couple of the lots received 7 or 8 bids. The best news is that the auction, with sales of just over $1,300, generated Society commissions that represent more than the dues of 3 memberships.
