Re: Auction today

My guess is that the vendor wasn't the original collector, otherwise surely they would have tipped us off here. !PUZZLED! I wonder why TW Gaze contrived to keep it off thesaleroom.com? To slip twenty vintage slot machines under the radar is quite an achievement in the internet age! TreeFrog - did yo...
