Â ON THURSDAY 16th JULY 2009
AN AUCTION OF ANTIQUES, COLLECTABLES AND GENERAL EFFECTS
including a low mileage Honda Accord, the best postcard album I have seen in years
and cameras everywhere with not a film between them
VIEW: Wednesday 15th, 1â€“7pm and sale day from 9.30am
Cameras, cameras, and more cameras. Iâ€™ve never seen so many. Mostly from one estate, they are mainly SLRs and early plate including Pentax, 6 Agiflex, many Exakta models, a Mercury Mk II, model CX half-frame and an Edaxa with a Carl Zeiss Jena Flektogon 20mm F4 wide-angle lens, probably 100 cameras in one general lot, tens of lenses, and loads of accessories. The Honda car has no MOT or tax. It is very tidy and I guess will walk through the test. Estimate Â£400â€“Â£600, but, as ever, without reserve. The postcard album is thick and fantastic, but Iâ€™m saying no more!!
As for the rest of the sale, itâ€™s a real mix and though not like the June sale, there are lots of horns and stuffed animal heads! PICTURES including originals and prints.
