Hi Guys, well I too was surprised at some of the prices. I managed to get Lot 198 - high price but as IL said, its what you're prepared to go to if its your specific field of interest.

I would like to ask you all though, Lots 810 & 816 were interesting as they had Elandslaagte clasps but couldn't find them on the roll - shouldn't DNW be stating that a particular person may not have been entitled to the clasp?

Regards
Ian

Ian,

Congratulations on the new Talana pair.

Sold for £140 and there was a footnote to say he was not on the Elandslaagte roll.

Thanks David & SWB,

Might have bought them just for the clasps - not something that comes up every day and not really sure what they would be worth?

Regards
Ian

I'm glad O'Brien ended up with you David. I suspect I may regret selling it but I know you will appreciate it more!

I didn't win at DNW after all - Bidder Beware!:

Thoroughly annoyed with DNW - I thought I had won lot 786 as it hammered at my max commission bid of £150.

However I got screwed because in the bidding steps I was at £140, the next bid was made live to £150 and in that circumstance the precedence of a commission bid is ignored. As explained by DNW I would have had to have left a commission bid "plus 1" to go £160. As also explained if there had been two commission bids of the same value then precedence is applied.

So my maximum bid was ignored in favour of live bidding.

I would have thought in this situation precedence would apply and the live bidders would have had to actually beat my maximum and go to £160. The auctioneers would actually make more money.

Auctioneering is an arcane world.

Oh well, I can afford now branded beans instead of own label :)
