Auction Highlights Toys & Ephemera 1 April 2021

Fantastic result with the sale of the 1963 X-Men 1 Comic during our Toys & Ephemera auction last night.
It was the most popular lot of the night with  many absentee bids and spirited bidding on the phones and in the room.  The price eventually paid was $13041.

The sale rate was an amazing 95% proof that it was a very successful auction.

We are now receiving goods for our next special auction Australiana & Decorative Arts to be held on 6 May 2021.
