Happy to help.  Some nice pieces in these categories, but they sure do command a hefty price tag.

Yeah it sure seems like bidders are willing to go higher for the coins in a Stack's Bowers auction. They routinely command 10-20% more than I expect.

Wonder if a seller would do better selling at SBP with 20^% fees or somewhere like Champaign with 10% fees....

From the vintage lots I saw which were about 60, bidding was very strong.  Sometimes 10 or 20 times preauction estimates.  The coin I wanted went for more than I was willing to bid by double.  Now I’m kicking myself for being cheap.  It was a pei yang arensenal 10 cents 1896 in au58. 

I did not watch the MCC portion since there was nothing worth bidding on and most coins were uninspiring.
