"Antique Bottle Auction Price Report"Someone should notify the FOHBC that the email addy is different.
Actually, the FOHBC should go through all the stuff and delete what's irrelevant, a lot is out of date.

I'm guessing NCH is Normans.
Did the Jared Spencers surprise you too? Just wondering. I figured nowhere near the high end but at least make them to the low on all three.

I actually thought they did quite well when you consider that most of the major collectors have them.

You said a mouthful there, Jamie. The major or "advanced" collectors are, in the vast majority of cases, those who just happen to have plenty of money. I've collected for 38 years now, and NOBODY would rather have the great rarities out there. If I were to hit it big, I'd go to the mat for the superbottles. Then suddenly, in the magazines covering the shows and auctions, I would be referred to as an "advanced collector". The term sorta chaffs my ass, even though I don't really think term is used with any kind of ivory tower mentality, although it's sure thrown around a lot, I guess for lack of a better term.

I WANNA BE AN ADVANCED COLLECTOR!

17 carefully chosen bottles using many decades of knowledge. Fits my definition.

I think that's makes you a good (maybe an advanced) historian. The DEEP pocket are what helps the collector become advanced. I have deep pockets in all my pants but they are either full of holes or bills. [:)][:D][:@][8|][:-][>:][:(][:o]
