Question On Morphy's Auction

Recommended Posts

Did Morphy used to be better at ID-ing their mibs than they were this time? I didn't check all the auctions -- for instance I didn't check handmades -- but I did see some serious faux pas in a few of the more common marble auctions.

I need to compare the final prices with the estimates. Coz it seemed like too many boxes were estimated at about $200. ... with modern marble kings estimated higher than most.

It looks like they 'Dumbed Up' their descriptions a little. You don't have to guarantee what you don't say.

Being too smart as an auctioneer can hurt the bottom line.

There were some pretty rare marbles offered & evidently happily gathered on up by collectors.
