Some nice pieces you've found. Much more satisfactory than dollar bills.  :thumbsup:

These are all very pleasing to my eyes! I wish I had a few of those myself. If you number them from top to bottom, left to right, I really like the fifth, sixth, and eighth ones.

I think #7 was a bid I lost to you. Good eye!

Thank you all for the kind words! As they say, so much better in hand, I hope to capture in detail with my Nikon soon.

Most of these are from Dale Miner's collection being consigned through Andrew Quirt. I live 5 minutes from Andrew and just couldn't help myself on several occasions when I was over parusing his inventory. Jakushi in upper right and massive tachi are from Elliot while the Shoami Daisho and Haruta plum tree(NBTHK hozan)in the upper left are from David Easley.

Very nice ! I count 8 of them that I really like.


I think you're very fortunate to be close to Andy because you get to see the tsubas for what they really are. I recognize some of Andy's tsubas (I regularly visit his website) and they look better in your pictures than on the website. I know that usually pictures don't do justice to the item being sold but it's always tricky to guess what the item will look like when you have it in hands.


Thanks for sharing  :thumbsup:

Very nice covid collection, Mike.  I wish I lived down the street from Andy too.  I like doing business with him.
