The item !
Detail showing material quality.
Detail showing the thin center.
Decent condition , a scarce but not particularly popular design but very good quality. It caused quite a commotion during and after the sale with plenty more to be said with lots of opinions floating on the internet concerning the piece !
That said even under the controversial circumstances a pretty good and fresh piece , in my humble opinion !
One more thing good luck to # 10 , the winner !
Hot , humid and the sky turned orange for awhile today !
Reports from the Santa Fe shows are starting to trickle in and the initial reports are positive with decent crowds and moderate business being conducted but it’s just the beguinning. Still a good start hoping for a strong finish !
