Dear Michael,

Thank you so much for posting these interesting auctions. Please keep this practice up, as it helps us across the pond discover many auctions we would not usually have access to.

I was able to purchase this item, thanks to your timely posting.

Best wishes,

David McGreevy

I hope that Flint's estimated pricings are realised, as that would help maintain the value of my collection but I fear they are somewhat to considerably optimistic. This would especially apply to broken or fungus damaged items, where my experience leads me to believe nobody wants them. The only exception to this is where a lens has special historic or ownership provenance and has documentation to support that. Repairs to a fungus damaged lens can easily cost more than the value of the lens.
