I have had fun buying from and selling to Dan. He's a good guy. Always good for a conversation. Hopefully he makes it out to John's show this year.
I don't know, I just looked through the auction results and, yes, there were some very high prices on some signs but those had condition and rarity going for them. Some of those may never be seen for awhile.
I thought there was some nice stuff in the $200-$400 range that was nicer and went for less than that auction I just attended in western NY and didn't have anyone from oldgas land that I saw and no internet bidding.
I thought lot 478 Cole Aero car sign and lot 303a the John Deere chilled plows were decent buys for someone. Those are fairly rare pieces.
I know you have to add up to 18% if you bid through Proxybid, but at least the opportunity was there for people that couldn't attend. Just the price of doing business. I was working while the auction took place and I had alredy spent my allowance at the auction I went to earlier in the month.
Some auction houses are getting close to that 18% or above for just in house auctions.
