well that was epic…

Wow! Now, that was an epic battle.

For those of you that missed the first two days of the collector corkscrews auction, there were some great pieces to be had, and a few bidding wars that were fun to watch.

The Frary Fifth Ave, went pretty high (actually the highest auction result on a Frary corkscrew thus far on the auction) with Maurice going toe to toe with Ion, and ending up victorious.

Another bidding war erupted for the folding Mumford. This is a piece that I really want, but this went way beyond my limit.

Again, it was Maurice and Ion going at it again. Maurice, really has a love of prong pullers, and Ion, of course, is determined to have an example of every corkscrew known in his museum. This time Ion was triumphant.

I didn’t win a single lot, but I have my eyes on several lots ending this next weekend. Stay tuned!
