Whilst the condition would dissuade some, perhaps many, the estimate cannot really be serious surely?

It might have been whimsical of me but I think I have just bought the group to Guy at Spink. When do they process the invoices? My maximum bid was 360 pounds and it sold for 350.

I am more accustomed to DNW where the invoice appears in your account almost immediately after a successful bid.

Regards

Rory

Rory,

I saw that has had sold for a low figure and think you have yourself a bargain.

It is a 2 day sale to I think you will receive the invoice on Friday morning.

A rare thing to celebrate - the auction bargain :)
