I find it difficult to understand why this is worth more than the scrap value. Even the suspension ring looks wrong.

An unbelievable price yesterday was for this 'a' hallmark Star.

It sold for a hammer price of £700. Totals (inc VAT for UK only): £902. R16,900. Au$1,540. Can$1,350. US$1,060



The previous month, Noonan's had sold this pair, containing a unnamed 'a' Star, albeit without its top riband bar for a hammer price of £380 (totals (inc VAT for UK only): £489. R9,200. Au$830. Can$740. US$570).
