Photo 10-20 Mogul at auction in Ohio yesterday.

Some friends and I went to the East Rochester farm auction to see the 1918 one family owner tractor sell, it went for $23,500.00 as best as I could determine the final comments. A couple issues but nothing huge. A pleasure to see one as if time stood still.

That's me under it in the second picture! If there was one less bid it would have been mine. It was funny to listen to the people before it sold tell how much they thought it was worth. IHC offered to trade a new $200K tractor for it a while back according the one fellow. Another stated there was a bid on it from the Ukraine.

Listening to people talk before a piece sells is always interesting. I remember a couple of weeks ago when I bought a 16-30 Rumely at an estate sale, the talk around the sale was of at least "two men with blank checks who came to buy it no matter what it brought . . ." and, yet I ended up with it. Others only wanted to talk about every discernible defect, no matter how small, as though that would somehow keep the sale price at a level they could afford to pay. I found all of it amusing.

So much talk at an auction is just that . . . talk. The only talk that matters is the chatter of the auctioneer and the final bidder.

I'm glad to hear you have "Pre Auction Know All's" in the US too! We have them in the UK, installed at every vintage auction!
The tractor looks to be at a lovely stage for restoration. Did someone get a good deal here or what?
Anyone see what the Mogul serial number was?

Harry, the auction listing gave it as BC6717, but it would be nice to have this confirmed by someone who was at the sale.

Unfortunately these higher prices these days are a two edged sword,good if your selling but it also prevents us lower income (non millionaire) collectors from getting any of the better pieces. Always the same story no matter how much money I have at a sale there's always people there with more and they ain't afraid to use it. F.J.W.
