Conclusion:

We hope you have enjoyed looking at these beauties as much as we have. The only sad news in all of this must be the fate of the previous owners who must miss their treasures. This is the hard part of our hobby. You try so hard to obtain the best and the scarcest at auction and once you win them you are allowed to have that wonderful feeling of possession. You store them away in a safe place and dream about them and have a chance to admire them from time to time. But then when you sell them, they are gone forever. We hope that looking at images in this review will provide some consolation to all the former owners.
