R38 a pop , Springy. How much extra to carve Ulundi on them - then we would definitely be on to a winner!!

I can see myself on Dragon's Den already!!

Springbok, Sergio, if you can cut me in as a third partner I can get some of my sixth form Art or DT students to carve some appropriate inscriptions into those spears.
I could almost guarantee that with a bit of "ageing" shall we say, they will convince any provincial auctioneers. These kids are good. One lad made me a set of alloy wheels for my car; they look sick and they haven't broken yet!!!

Did anyone get any photographs. I was all set to go. Meeting in Scotland yesterday, flew out 08:10 back to Stanstead 16:15. Hit the M25 got a mile form Dartford tolls, phone call, can you go back to Scotland. Two more meetings booked for the 22nd Jan. Just my luck! So any photo's would be great!

Some of you may have seen it on the RDVC site but here is a link to a report of the auction on BBC. Some shots of the film and Ian Knight commenting. Government of KwaZulu Natal bought some of the items it seems.

Hi Springy .
Dont leave me out ! . Time for me to do some foraging in the later part of March - April ! .
Sergio .
I was wondering what you were thinking when LOT 109 was increasing in value at the speed of light , I had an idea these prices would be on the ridiculous side of ridiculous , and yes , I left 109 to you , I was about to bid on a snuff container , but the bidding started past what I thought to be an appropriate price ! . I was out by 300 GBP's .
Steve ? .
Yes , the Medal went for about the right price , but there would be a Hammer Tax to add on etc along with another fee or 3 !.
So , in the end it was probably a bit expensive , but was it to a Gunner ? , they are , and seem to be rarer than others from the Royal Artillery from what I've found over time .
Happy to have kept the cue in the rack as they say !.

Well that explains some of the high prices - hard to bid aganst the KZN government!!

Gary - I think my bid on the horn was around 500 which was loads - to think it went for twice that!!. Fortunately I had secured one of the items we discussedby then so at least have something to show for the trip!!

Regards

Jager1[/quote]

Lets hope so - as long as it doesnt encourage you to put your prices up  Wink  At least N/6 were involved at Ulundi I suppose. Still seems very high based on the current market.

Let me know when you find anything interesting - before the Mrs spends the budget!!

Cheers

Hi Sergio .
At least it wasnt a wasted trip , something is better than nothing . The next Auction featuring some Zulu Artifacts may see the prices revert back to a level of sanity , as I doubt there will be the media exposure , unless of course there will be another Auction of the same ilk !.
Cheers 90th

Will try not to Sergio, don't think any dealer could get that kind of price but often (especially of late) auctioneers can

Yes not long now 90th!  Wink
