Ridiculously low prices unless there was something wrong with them. Shame I never knew about it. People do keep these things to themselves don’t they.

Would you share on the forum of a local auction to you with loads of machines in?......I know occasionally people do, but usually when they have no intention of buying something themselves. Those may remember when I first joined the forum, I used to post every nice find, even ones not so easy to see on here, thinking I was being helpful. I started getting private messages and comments, kindly advising that you just don’t do this, e.g. stop !OMFG!

So, I did and now only post in advance things that are obvious, like say Morphys in the states. I even avoid making comment on a machine that has serious issues, e.g. the recent Jennings Witches Cat before the auction has ended, as of course the seller may be a member on here. Didn’t help much as it ended up being relisted 3 times....

So it’s a Catch-22........to be honest, I thought I would have found lots of known faces as word gets around. It only takes one......perhaps this one got away, shame as I only bought a few of the lots....

No, whenever anyone learns of an auction they keep it to themselves rather than let everyone know, so that they have less competition when the bidding starts.
