Special Collection Liquidation Auction - ends June 7 at 6:30 PM

ENDS ON TUESDAY JUNE 7
at 6:30PM (Central Time Zone)
NOTE SPECIAL ENDING DAY ON TUESDAY ...

Unlike most of our auctions, which are pooling specimens from multiple sources and huge collection buyouts, this one is featuring only specimens from one longtime Spanish friend and collector who is thinning down his collection for a retirement move, and offered them up for auction (against my own opinion that he might get more selling them one by one over time, retail!). His feeling was that the money they yield doesn't matter, because this was the best way to move them all without "heartbreak" from selling one by one after he spent 40 years acquiring them. I hope we can show him how they go to good new homes! This will be the 2nd of several such auctions we can give you of these fine, generally larger specimens at value prices to all.
