Those of you who are “old-timers” will remember Bill Fivaz’s famous “mystery” auction lot that he puts in a regular club auction every two to three years. Well, Saturday, August 20 IS THE NIGHT!!!
The treasure chest loaded with goodies will be Lot #1, and, as in the past, whomever buys the lot simply can’t lose. Bill has given us these clues:
- You cannot pay too much for the lot. If the winning bid exceeds the Greysheet Bid amount, Bill will keep adding coins until the bidder is satisfied. (This has happened only once previously, and a $5 or $10 Gold coin was added, much to the buyer’s delight!)
- The under bidder(s) will wish they hadn’t stopped bidding.
- (BIG Clue): The total of the lot is the same as a very important date in U.S. numismatic history.
- The list of contents will be read to everyone after the winning bid is hammered down.
The winning bidder may pay by a check, and, if necessary, have 45-days to pay in full.
Be sure to be there for the festivities! We’re gonna have FUN!!!
