Just got the results this afternoon from the Kuenker 186. Ouch!

 

Not being independently wealthy, I rarely bid on the major house auctions and generally confine myself to items with estimates of three digits (or less). I had bid 125 on a 1704 kopek - estimate was 100. Thing sold for 500!

 

Oh, well...I did win a nice one from G&M last week. Poor thing, nobody wanted it. Sold for less than estimate. (Photo from the catalog - we'll see what it looks like when I get it.)

looks like early 18 century copper is not popular these days. I personally stay away from them because of crude look. none I saw are the condition I would like to own.
