No. This seems to be a very uninteresting group. No one (else) should bid on it. :rolleyes:

Lot #323: Glory full cavalier set at a bargain estimate :jumping:

Gentlemen,

have a look at lot #323.

That's the full cavalier set of comrade Maksim Konstantinovich Belishko (Максим Константинович Величко) with Glory 1cl s/n. 1091, Glory 2cl s/n. 27980 and Glory 3cl s/n. 66225.

I checked the serial numbers at "Mirnagrad" http://www.mirnagrad.ru/cgi-bin/ and the awards: http://www.mirnagrad.ru/cgi-bin/exinform.c...%ED%EE%E2%E8%F7

Well, the estimate price is about USD 12.000,- including buyers premium, British VAT and 5% extra tax.

O.K., it's a category 7 set, but 12k bucks that's far less, than for one single Glory 1cl at the market today :speechless: .

Gentlemen, what's your opinion about the Glory-Trio at this auction :unsure: ?

Best regards :beer:

We will see, if the Russian collectors are influenced by the financial and stock market crisis :unsure: .

Best regards :beer:

Was just reading about a dutch millionaire who bought one of only 20 maybach convertibles recently. His response to the question whether he had doubts in buying due to the recent economic crisis: "it doesn't affected my spending habits the slightest bit"

We'll see...
