Never been to an auction house before, so looking forward to it.
Don't forget if you have a question during the auction just put your hand up.

I want what you all want, whatever that is. :roll:

Will be going, just to at least see the items. I have my eyes on one machine that I would not normally go for, but may change mind once there. I wish I was close enough to view, I have to get up at 4am to have a chance to view.

Some nice rare machines, perhaps more for the wall collector than bandit, but as has been mentioned odd reserves on some machines of which the following obviously they do not want to sell as if reserves exist usually near lower estimate is reserve.

Lot 5 and 6 Rockola machines as £2k to £2.5k
Lot 9 Payramid £3k to £3.5k
Lot 23 Butterfly £4K to £4.5k
Lot 32 Maple Leaf £2k to £2.5k
Lot 79 Trickler (worse estimate of all) £7k to £7.5k
Lot 112 Major League £2k to £2.2k

We will see if course, see you there !!THUMBSX2!!

Was hoping to get there early on the auction day, as the auction house has a small car park.
sod's law, we will be bidding on the same machines. :shock:
Thanks for the advice moonriver. :lol:
See you on the auction day Tom and RadioChrissie.

I wouldn't worry about bids from fellow collectors/members here. You all know what they're worth and because you'll see them in the flesh you'll fully understand what you're bidding on.
The ones to worry about are those sitting at home bidding on the internet, they're the ones that go whappy with the bid button while assuming everything is in perfect condition.

Also, when bidding online, if 5 bidders press their button at the same time then it puts in 5 consecutive accumulative bids which really puts the price up.

That can't be right. It can only bid up to the indicated increment when you push the button. If five online bidders hit 'Bid £400' simultaneously, one will be given the lead bid of £400 and the others will find they were too late and offered a 'Bid £420' button (if the increment is £20).

Of course, if there's a higher proxy bid already in place, it will jump up to £420 when someone bids £400 and go to the proxy bidder for that amount unless there are more bids.

Viewing day Saturday. Spoke to Chris Large who is in charge of the viewing day, who said that the machines belong to a guy who now lives in America (he wouldn't say who). The machines have been in storage for some time. The condition of the machines - some worked, some didn't, spotted woodworm on some of the machines. The bandits mostly didn't work, the Mills Hi Top was held together by gravity! Front sides and back not bolted together, also jammed.
Chris informs me that if some of the machines in the auction don't reach their reserve price, the auctioneers can sell 10% below the reserve.
Lots of interest on a number of machines. Asked why some of the valuations seemed very high, this was mainly because the seller (who ever he/she is) set the valuation high - I guess they didn't want to sell them!

The auction starts at 10 o'clock, and will take about 2 hours (according to Chris).
Peter Wilson car park is small, so I suggest the people who intend going to arrive early. Gates open 8.30.

Thanks for the update, I have no expectations, but just looking forward to the experience. Will be interesting to see what is what... Maybe the high priced machines will be heading over the water.

Prices are funny at the moment, an auction today in Suffolk had a few slot machines in, with a Hi Top making 150 and a Lite Up the same, but an interesting coloured Brooklands raised 800 excluding commission......

What did interest me in this sale was the Brecknell BMR Slot Automatic petrol sign from a petrol pump from the '20s... See below a machine it would have sat on... I guess unattended coin-op petrol machines would not be allowed in our world today.
