The reason is the auction company is commited to bringing top dollar for the consigner, and top dollar is more easily realized the closer the auction is held to the central U.S. I don't care for it but I can certainly see their point.

I wouldn't screw around with this auction anyway, nothing good in there at all,

yeah right

Collections of this magnitude are best served by being brought to the center of the country. I think it's really smart not to have it a)in the PNW & b)in North Central Illinois where a lot of the Matthews/Aumanns have been held. Doing at Gateway, you are basically as geographically centered as you can be. In essence, St. Louis is a hard day's drive from a LOT OF PEOPLE. Or it's an easy flight for everyone.

Those shell signs look just like the east coast and west coast 15" metal frame globes, totally different for each region.......Les

Thanks for the pics, Frank and good observations Les. I wasn't aware of the two versions of this sign. Here's the western version in 42".
