Three Crompton's Shooters, and none of them the usual 'pussy'. That's rare.
Another couple and you'd have a full set, 'Dem Bones' missing.
The Big Game 'shoot between the eyes' a bit too controversial to operate, but aiming at Native American Indians still a grey area. !SAINT!

What price the Green Ray? Far better than the Morphy machine that sold for $5,500 hammer! We will see tomorrow, but £2/400 unlikely to buy it!!!

Crazy, you would have thought A&G would have dropped the fee for their own online auction service given current crisis, given they already charge 22%

On top of all this, many may not be able to collect on the day, especially online bidders, they have an additional charge of around £130 per item to remove from location, warehouse fees and handling fees just for amusement items. You would have thought they would be trying to encourage people to return to auctions.

Making hay will the sun shines I'd guess.
Proof of that being Arcadians on eBay going for £600 apparently

Results now in the Arena (together with monthly round-up).
The Green Ray was a bit cheaper than the American one, at £2,600 plus extras. Weird that they catalogued it as circa 1960s!

Thought I would watch for fun, must be the slowest auctioneers on the planet. It was painful.....averaging 50 lots an hour. Maybe trying to drag it out due to limited lots.

Money still out there though, my favourite was the Bryans Crane. Love the shape of those, if a little large.
