In a moment of madness, I resuscitated my 'must have' list and I got my 'agent' in the UK to bid for me. He got three out of three, so I am very happy:

734 Natal Volunteer Hotchkiss Detachment
777 Utrecht-Vryheid Mounted Police

Brett,

I am very pleased for you. Fantastic items.

734 was on my priority list but I stopped bidding as the price rose. I am really pleased that you acquired it.

Well done Brett. 734 was one of my bids but I was left behind. Ended up 0/4 but at least managed 1/3 on DNW last week!

Madness Brett, I'm not sure that it is, notwithstanding, it does sound a rather expensive moment!

Well done everyone.

I found the Spink app and PC bidding (I was on both at the same time!) really good, no blips at all. It is the best live auction software I have used. Invoice emailed at end of day, , very reasonable postage, paid today - so far a very good service.

One of the theories from behavioural economics is prospect theory which, in part, expresses the view that people feel losses much more than equivalent gains. Since the Spink sales, I have noticed this theory in action with regard to two adjacent items from the auction. I managed to buy the QSA to Tucker's Scouts (11 issued) but failed to buy the Rundle's Scouts QSA (38 issued). It is the 'loss' of the Rundle's Scouts medal that has been occupying my mind since Thursday.

Has anyone else been affected by prospect theory?
