Can't agree there I'm afraid, Adam.
As you must remember, the auctions at Malmesbury are not much cop for small "one offs" like this.
And by the time it sold (which would depend very much upon who was actually in attendance), once all the "deductions" have been made, how much is Brian going to be left with? Answer:- not much.
Hilditch is great for hospital clearances, large job lots, and (sometimes) piles of junk!
No, a private sale is the way to go with this one. Or (as I have already hinted), as it is a small, easily packed item, I believe that an auction eBay would be worth a go.
a market there (on eBay). Worldwide, even.
@Brian: if you fail to sell it on here (or elsewhere), get in touch and I'll make you an offer.
