Are those sales numbers real? Why so low?

Those are the sales numbers listed. As far as why? I assume it's because I wasn't there. Had I been, they surely would've gone way higher and I'd ask myself why I went all the way to Europe to be disappointed.

Didn't mean to imply you were wrong, Joe, just wondering if the list missed a decimal place.

I know and didn't take it that way. I wish there would be a misplaced decimal, but sadly no.

Damn, missed that totally! Would have been good to bid on them as I wouldn't have to pay the 24% tax when inside EU.

Add 30% buyer's premium.

 

Reduce by crappy photos so I can't tell how good this is or not.

 

Reduce by cost of papers and polish and any other restoration fee.

 

Reduce by general fudge factor of these might be the fake ones and someone picked over the good ones before it went to auction.

 

Reduce by crap, I thought the auction was next week.

All fair points Darcy, as always, but I think your last one was the best one!
