|A piece from a 1960ish Trippensee|
I know auctions, I understand auction fever , but there were 4 seasoned bidders that took this thing up, up, up, to a seeming dizzying height. Now certainly if you own a Trippensee with a badly damaged globe you MIGHT be interested in this for a swap, I guess that has to be it, but then why not wait for a whole one, at say $400 swap out the globes then re-list and capture most of your money back? If your savvy enough to search out the missing part then surely you are going to think of this?
I better end here I don't want to sound like I'm a ranting lunatic, but this auction made me feel like I was in one of those twilight zone episodes where the guy is normal and the whole world went crazy..............
P.S. if you were in on the bidding, either the winner or an under bidder, I'd love some insight, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
