    Wish I'd bought one all those years ago when they first appeared on the market and we all thought they were too expensve.

    Pity they are all so close together time wise, when they where spread out through out the year it worked well with saving some coin between auctions.

    Love an auction I hope the covid nonsense stays out of it. Be a shame to see them go online.

    You have to be able to fondle the goodies at an auction - looking at a minimal number of poor pics isnt the same .

    What’s wrong with postal bids? System works really well. With so many lots they would never have time for any kind of live internet type auction….

    If you really want something, show up, beats any internet auction.

    Ted Roger's postal bidding is hardly internet. Postal bidding (and phone bidding) is almost universally used worldwide. Caters for overseas and local bidders.

    I've long since stopped going great distances to sit out, in some cases 2 days of auction when I have an item of interest part way thru day 1 and half way thru day 2.
    Used to get mates who were attending to look at item and bid for me but they are now mostly non attenders like me.

    There's some good Antique Arms auctions in the South Island - plane trip for me, I think not.
    Even Ted Roger's auction is a day's drive down and then drive back after the auction. Likewise I think not.

    Sure, if you're chasing something in the higher value/scarce range it's better to be present or have a proxy.

    Postal bidding is also a good discipline - do your research, set your financial bid limit, take your chance. If you must out you miss out.

    So who's going to the Ruahine Auction and knows one end of a vintage rifle from the other ?
