So, am I wrong here or is that a 23% commission for all sales or just the internet ? Is there a higher charge for the internet ?

The diagnosis of cancer last year prompted him to sell. Unfortunately, Alan died around Christmastime.

FYI, there are quite a few "fake" items in the auction. Can't go by the item descriptions that list them as original. Not sure who researched the stuff, but some of the items are obvious fakes, it's pretty sad...

Did not know he passed away. Sad to hear, his collection was legendary.

Well this is a scary thought!!! If we can't even count on a place like Morphy's to know fakes from authentic.
I would hope if Dan see's the postings in this thread he will look into this and pull questionable items.

Your big ticket items like the signs and globes are good, it's some of the plaques, cans, calendars, desk/paper weights, smalls/trinkets like this Pier 1 Imports looking ashtray, that was overlooked and advertised as original- "A very nice example of this Gilmore Oil Co. ashtray. Piece retains a fair amount of the original paint and the lion is still intact. A nice aged piece with great patina....

Auction one is on the left. One on right is from ebay...

What items does everybody thinks that are fakes that myself and John Mihovetz catalog. Don Grimmer and myself met with Alan before he passed away, I had asked him about the Gilmore ashtray he told me that it was real and it was one of the first things he pulled out of a gas station.

So what other items and I will check into it and if you do not want to post call me 217-259-7059.

I knew Alan (RIP) a bit. Never had a bad deal with him, myself. Alan had a lot of cool stuff, aside from all the cool Gilmore stuff. But, he also had fake "red flag" items he claimed original, some he sold off already. With that said, with all his cool stuff, as well as all the other cool stuff offered in the auction, it's likely going to be one h3ll of an event!...

Regarding the ash tray stand, I don't know who made them, or how old they are, but pretty sure they're just old ornamental ash tray stands with a leaping lion. On ebay there are several in current and past auctions. Same company appeared to have made them with dragons, etc...
