Robert, the provided URL is incorrect. It should be http://www.auroragalleriesonline.com .

As for Flo's comments... I couldn't agree more. Not much chance of me being on-line at midnight to 2am GMT .

Cheers, Derek

www.auroraauctions.com - as provided by Victoria - also works. The problem above was that a comma was mistakenly included with the script-generated URL tag.

Well that was interesting and entertaining (surprise) for a Wednesday night. Too bad I found out about it with about 75 lots left, but entertaining just the same !

Dave Blog,

I made some bids, didn't win anything but by 1am the eyes were drooping so I just gave up.

Was going to Bid on the flown Russin flag but at a start price of $175 it was at my max, When at a previous auction these were going for under $100.

I gave the 51-L Cut and paste job some thought (I know it didn't sell again) But just wasn't convinced on the signatures but I'm no expert and in the back of my mind was what do you have to cut up to get a Jarvis and Macaulif added.

Anything else I bid on just went sky high isn't ie skylab urine device..

Well at least I have the cash in pocket

Hello- Does anyone have any information as to what sold/did not sell the second time around for this auction?

I am interested in finding the prices realized for a few pieces in particular.

Thanks all- Jay
