Re: Coventry Auction 25/11/18

I think the proof that we achieved our often stated objective of supporting the hobby instead of just running a business has been realised this year. How? Check eBay. BP I'd agree with that. Seemed to me that the machines sold went to a wide cross-section of people there, many of whom will keep the...

Re: Coventry Auction 25/11/18

the clown catchers?? :!?!: any guesses Have a feeling they were around the 700-800 mark but I'd hate to be wrong so best to wait for confirmation from someone else. Both were nice machines and with a catcher being a style missing from my collection (of two machines, lol) I was sorely tempted by one...

Re: Coventry Auction 25/11/18

I wrote a few notable ones down... and managed to leave the bit of paper behind... :dammit: From memory the Bryan's Rockets got up to 2600 or so, the Forks to 1825, Six-o-more 1150, Mutoscope was over 3k. And most notably a streamline Elevenses went for I think 1600! !OMFG! Think I might be waiting ...

Re: Coventry Auction 25/11/18

Well, tomorrow I will go to the bank to pay in exactly the same amount I withdrew on Friday. Couple of the things I was interested in went a little or a lot over my self-imposed limit, and although tempted by items such as the S&L Fireworks, I don't have the luxury of much space so have to be strict...

:lol:

Sounds like, with dark hair, I may be the odd one out. Although the rest of the description, being my first time too, matches pretty well!

Re: Elephant House Auctions

I decided not to go: partly as not much that interested me as I don't go for the reels and enamel signs of which there were many, and partly as I'd rather keep the old powder dry for next week just in case! I will be interested to see though how much the singing bird with chicks automaton (Bontems) ...

Re: Coventry Auction 25/11/18

Thanks for the latest update: there's still something messed up with the mobile version though, it shows page 4 and then a link to page 6 which is a page of machines that sold, with prices. And when on that page, there appear links to another 10 or so pages!
Works fine on laptop PC though.
