Probably something to do with exporting endangered species outside of the E.U. (e.g. ivory, certain types of fur, etc.)why at least two busbies lot # 4116 and #4171 can only be shipped within the E.U.?
Brian, try registering again. If I have no problem registering while in Singapore, a country which doesn't even appear on major maps , I believe you have no problem with Canada.I tried to order a catalogue but when I was registering....Canada was not on the list of countries So according to Hermann, I now reside in Barrie Germany! After a few more unsuccessful attempts and cursing technology, I gave up. Perhaps I am on some sort of verboten liste due to past sins?? Could my ex wives have been talking to Hermann??
Hi AmyI just ordered mine and it says will reach me in Singapore by May 4, so that is not too bad.
I have a question, they said buyer's premium 25% and when you do online bidding, they said your commissioned bid is XXX. So is the bid price inclusive of the 25% or we have to add 25% on top of what we bidded.
James:There is no doubt prices will be high as the auction is drawing tons of interest.
I am deciding if I want to pay high price just to have something from his collection or not?
We will see
That's exactly what I keep telling Missus Boss...James:
I know where you're coming from.
I've been over the catalouge several times and when I put the items I'm interested in into my Excel application which is something I developed to try to inject an element of economic sanity into what's essentially an irrational acquisition, the numbers just don't pass the sanity test for me.
When I input a 25% hammer fee and exchange rates plus shipping from Europe the math doesn't make sense to me in most cases.
But, then again, I'm at the point in my collecting career where I buy things if I think it's a reasonably good use of my money. I'm past the "I have to have it" stage.
