ISGC Benefit Auction Closes on August 31st
Author Last Post
All of the 59 lots donated for the ISGC 2020 Benefit Auction were sold to members. There were 35 bidders, with 22 members obtaining winning bids. Bidding was heavy and generous, and most winning bidders won their lots at their bid price. There were only a few lots where bids could be reduced to one increment over the next highest bid. All of the lots have been sent out to the winning bidders. After expenses, the net amount benefitting the ISGC is around $2500. Thank you to all who participated.

A link to the final results is here.

Is there a bid status listing by item for the Auction so we know if we are underbidding?
JJ Gregg
nope, not for me. I have no lots for sale in the auction. 
I believe this was meant for you.


Hello from Bonn,

Please enter the following bid for me:

Lot 42    APO covers        $25

I plan to pay via paypal, so please factor their fees into any final invoice you might send me.  I will be here in Bonn and online until September 4 before taking a short trip, so it would be good if you would let me know one way or another about the auction by that date.


Best regards,
