Club auction earlier

logger7logger7 Posts: 8,079 ✭✭✭✭✭

I stopped at the monthly Berkshire coin club earlier tonight in Pittsfield held at the library auditorium, I happened to be passing through and was invited.

Decent attendance of 25 or so even with the snow. They usually have $5K or more in coins that sell, tonight the auction was light, so not very close to that.

One mistake in the auction that most members attending missed was an 1823/2 Bust dime in a nice fine condition listed as 1832. So a $200 plus coin sold for less than $40!

    Did the seller find out that he made a mistake?

    Did you happen to place the high bid? Any chance for a pic?

    Nice catch and good eye on the bust dime. One never knows

    It was still in the flip from Berkshire coin from 15 years before; someone else got the 1823/2 Bust 10c. Original nice fine. I talked to the winning bidder afterwards, offered him $100 and he wanted $400 for it!

    @logger7.... Good eye... No one told the seller prior to the auction? Too bad... Cheers, RickO

    This was the auction list; their format of the meeting were some Q and A and then to go through the auction items to find active bids and then quickly go over it section by section again.

    They type up the auction list in advance? Wow, that is a lot of work...
