I hadn't seen these until your post.

A collector from IOW sadly passed away earlier this year and I recognise a number the images as machines he had owned. We never met but he would call me regularly to chat over machines and I miss those calls.

If this is the case, not good to hear of machines being sold under these circumstances, although becoming more common, certainly recognise a number of machines from slotty auctions and discussed on here, like the HI Top Melon Front sold at the Elephant.

Shame it is on the Island as not the easiest place to get to, just checked ferry prices - over a hundred quid return. :shock:

And then there is the commission which is 18%, then of course VAT so 21.6% will be added to the hammer price.
Makes Coventry very reasonable.

Why do they bother with "estimated" prices which are always totally random? Is it to encourage you to take part or is it to make them look good when prices are higher? A Mad money "£350", a Bryans two player "£150".

I'd like the BDR myself. Only thing that might keep prices down a little would be the sheer number of machines. You're not going to do your cash on lot 2 if you really want lot 22. I might go down to nearby Newhaven and catch the daily steamer to Shanklin. Oh bugger, they ended that service in 1909. dirtdog

I was thinking of bidding at this auction BUT it's a very expensive way to buy machines, 21.2% to add on, then there is shipping, they say must be removed within 3 days! or they add 3% (per day?) they will ship to any part of the isle (at a price) or will send by royal mail to the mainland :shock: Want to go collect your self? That piece of water is the most expensive (per mile) pieces of water to cross anywhere. My guess is if you bought just one machine the end price would be close to double the hammer price.

Interesting "Frogs" game table in there. I suspect the seller would have been quids in if they had shifted the whole lot to the mainland to sell.

Apparently a deceased estate of a chap from Freshwater in West Wight. I agree they look good but many have faults, already spoken to the auctioneers about three I was interested in, but with condition have changed my mind!

Yes, the most expensive stretch of water anywhere! Although you can book a day return with car and up to two passengers I believe at a more reasonable price, although if you need to buy anything (which I doubt) at the right price as the usual suspects were talking about it yesterday at Elephant. If you are bidding blind I urge you to check condition with the auctioneers as you could be disappointed.

Well the Isle of Wight auction is over as far as the slot are concerned.
Prices varied from quite cheap to expensive on the hammer prices but high when you add the commission and transport. Clearly there were bidders in the room with large vans so transport negligible as far as they were concerned. I bid on only the BDR, just me and a guy in the room so I lost out as the transport cost of just one machine added up.

Here are most of the hammer prices and the lot numbers. May have got one or two wrong and missed a couple.
3,£800 4,£300 5,£400 6,£400 7,£550 8,£500 9,£220 10, £200 11,£150 12, ? 13,£130 14, £600 15,£340 (should have bought that one possibly) 16,£320 17,£240 18, £800(jennings Governor) 19,£380 20,£480 (not much interest in the room for the clubmaster so perhaps not the real item) 21,£300 22,£1500 (peep show) 23,£360
24, £600 25,£320 26,£200 27,£400 28,£280 29,£400 30,£340 31,£500 32,£550 33,£300 34,£240 35,£440 36, £200 37,£400 38,£700 (carousel allwin ) 39,£340 40,£750 (Mills war eagle) 41,£200 (aristo 4 reel) 42,? 43,£260 44,£1400 (pussy shooter) 45,£320 ("Frogs" table) 46,? 47,£150 48, ? 49,£300 (vest pocket) 50,? 51,£320 53,£190 54,£700 (allwin) 55,£240 56,? 57, £90 (would have liked this one but paying £100 to go get it!!)
