Steamer brought 60,000.00 rough N&S steamer somewhere near 5K. 30-60 rumely 42K. I slept through some of sale... Let a decent United AC go for 350.00 on steel. 20-35 TC went around 7700.00, Huber went around 5K with road setup on it( looked neat). Lots of stuff.

Wow, good thing I didn't go. They were practically giving most things away! Money's tight what with the grain prices. I'd simply been sick, unable to bid at those prices!

I have been sick all day for not bidding on the Minneapolis tractor for 2,400. Many tractors sold for less than scrap. Engines mostly were normal lower now days prices.
The steam engine had a brand new boiler 10 years ago. Really one of the neatest collections I have seen. The former owner was quite a man. Died at 91 not lpng ago. 50,000 dollar 1955 Jaguar sold. Very nice car.

I was waiting to buy the Cushman and Witte so did not bid on the Minneapolis. Then did not get them.
Lonnie Nixon and Kelly Conkling and one other cried the sale, from 9 am till 3:30?
The 5hp Galloway had a nasty crack and a chunk out of the piston. They also had a Masterpiece 6 hp. Head was cracked on it. And a new broke off Webster.

I am kicking myself too for not bidding a couple more times on that Minneapolis, I was the backup bidder but was also saving my money for other stuff I didn't get.....
