Have you seen what we mustn't talk about?

I've never gotten my head totally around talking openly about Discoveries and up coming Auctions .
While at the same time we don't want them mentioned on the forum in case others go after them as well!?

I know there's a few of us on here have fallen foul of that one.
So I'm not going to mention a general auction coming up in UK (end of June) with 19 machines. Mainly working models including Green Ray, Pharaohs, Novelty merchants, Mutoscope, All Square, Shooters etc ......

I shan't be going, perhaps that's why I'm happy to mention it.
Now if it had been offering a Buckley Bones, I should have probably gotten quite irritated with myself!!!!

Be careful not to mention it's in Newcastle or it's on The Saleroom either. OOPS !! As they say in court, strike that from the record! :lol:

Oh no, I had my trip planned to get the 7 hours to Newcastle and back done before midnight to comply with the new travel rules, scuppered once again !OMFG!

I am not excited though, always like those Bryans cranes Mind you, just a bit big for my bathroom. Look to me like from a business sale maybe.....

If you're feeling dizzy and in need of an eye test, you should be fine. If you've got the virus - even better. Take passengers, at least one child. If nobody's killed, you'll be deemed to have acted "responsibly and legally and with integrity".

Putting Anderson & Garland auction in the Calendar...

BP I am surprised you would not be interested in the two green shield stamp bandits, that payout stamps as the win....I only say this as if you do a search on the site, you seem to have a favourable memory of them :lol:

You're not wrong there TF.
It was through the Green Shield catalogue I found two of my wives.
I met the first one at a party, it was a hell of a shock, I thought she was doing overtime down the bookies.

BP !!HIDING!!

At last; a local one.
Estimates seem rather low; buyer's premium rather high.
Some of the descriptions are a little 'imprecise'. Still, we all know what a Treasure Cave is.
On my list; that's what it is.

Nobles have some big storage warehouses up there. They used to be packed full of all kinds of amusement machines and used to have periodic clearance sales advertised out of Coin Slot that I went to, row after row of good stuff they'd operated.
Now they've sold out to Admiral I guess this is them clearing the odds and ends left over.
The machines seem a bit of an odd mix, everything Nobles operated themselves always used to be very well maintained and some of these are not to their usual standard.

Three Crompton's Shooters, and none of them the usual 'pussy'. That's rare.
I like that 1960s fortune teller...
You know, Green something-or-other...
