Can't wait to see where this one ends up. A day and a half to go and over $500 already! I love me some Martin pieces but  :o

I like to see pieces bring good money. Good for the buyer and the seller.  ;)

So Perry does this mean the #16 camp oven and #14 spider skillets and camp ovens have increased in price proportionately due to this auction?   ;) :o

Well Roger, no, I would not say that at all. One auction does not set a value for that piece or others like it. Now some of the ebay sellers are of that opinion though. But that don't make it so.  ;)

Too bad Perry, I was starting to make retirement plans to go diving with Greg in Fiji.  ;)

Same guy is the current leader on a Martin #10 camp oven I'm selling. Hopefully he'll let me hand deliver it since he only lives an hour and a half away from me and I can see how much killer iron this guy is storing up.
