When two or more of them start playing, they can buy and sell to each other, essentially laundering their profits, just not so quickly as to arouse suspicion. I b...

Re: Morean Auction - June, 2022

I would love to know who is buying all these items. Are they new collectors with deep pockets? Are they just investors looking for a place to park their cash? How many unique buyers are contributing to this insanity? What do they see that the rest of us are missing? And most importantly, can I pleas...

Re: $150 vs. $11,000 - What am I missing???

Would be interesting to know who is bidding in Dan's auctions. That could help answer the 'why' question when things do not make sense on the surface.

Re: Heidelberg Transition Can

Yep, that is the transition Heidelberg can and placed chronologically correctly. Maybe as many as 50 of them recovered from the wind tunnel find.

Re: 2 Different Heidelberg Flats Nice!

The can on the left is a tough transition label. We found about 20-30 of these in the Boeing Wind Tunnel find. These came from that find.

Re: Not In Volume I Supplement?

That can was missed in the inventory. @Scott Field has an original (filled) one as do others. I'm sure this transition can was just overlooked, but it does not get much love.

Thank You for your service Keith Kerschner

I just wanted to say Thank You to Keith for this past year as BCCA President. You have moved the BCCA ahead on technology and raised the bar on communications. Even in the year of Pandemic you were able to attend many in person shows and lead the organization.

Job well done.
