News from the Office: We did not make it to Allentown, Brett came down with Covid and my other Travel crew got exposed to other sickies so we were not able to get up there. Fortunately everyone seems to be recovering which is good news. We have obtained some very rare US WWII handguns and will be getting this stuff on the site early this week and some other mint guns as well.
We wanted to touch base with you all on some of the crazy internet auction prices that some items have sold for recently. You may have seen or heard about certain fairly rare military guns brining 3-4 times their actual current market value. Our clients are asking if these prices are the new normal, but the question that they should be asking are these crazy auction prices real? Apparently in many of the cases they are not. The sellers on most of these auctions are not being paid for various reasons. One scenario that I have heard from several sellers of these crazy priced auctions is that the winning bidder just ran the item up because they personally knew and hated the other bidder and had no intention of ever paying.
The internet auction world is populated by some very sketchy and trashy people who have no regard for normal and established rules of behavior and decorum. I could say more but if you cant say anything nice you should probably just button up your yap. The bottom line is do not believe everything is as it seems with these fluke prices because they are not all what they seem to be.
Please make an appointment if you are stopping by the office. We are more than happy to pull something for you to look at if you have an interest; we just need to know in advance and don’t mind a visit.
