Got to agree,

And at that price it may have been over bid as I don’t see any of this stuff going up at the rate us old and true blue guys are kicking off.
The Greenberg guides don’t cut it today. E-bay killed their so-called ideas.
It would be nice to know how old the winning bidder is.  Laugh

...And at that price it may have been over bid...

But with a second price Vickery auction like eBay, it takes two bidders within one increment to get the closing up so high.

Good morning all,

I usually do not go after high dollar items unless it is something I really really want and I have the money for it.   The last example was an IVES 1772 gondola, which was a Lionel 512 with an IVES nameplate and number.   The 512 normally goes for $40 or $50 (or less).  The 1772 was a bit more.  Sometimes I have to be patient.   Always liked the BN 1552 set and finally found one at a good price at a TCA meet.  I hope everyone has a good day.

Keep on training,

Mike C. from Indiana
