Winchester auction prices

Attended a middle Tennessee auction of more than 70 guns yesterday. Among them were a 62A, about 90% except for freckling on the receiver, for $400, a 1906, poorly refinished wood and what appeared to be an old reblue for $355, and a 63, no bluing and about 70% wood, for $410.
The auction was "unique" in that there was no pre-auction inspection of the guns other than them being staged vertically in a rack with signs saying "don't touch the guns" and enforcers standing by. They lost hundreds of dollars by not allowing potential buyers an opportunity to see what condition or features were being offered. This should be a lesson learned and remembered for those of us who wonder what will happen to our gatherings after we're beyond controlling them!
