Just spotted the following mixed lot in a catalogue for a local auction due to take place 13/11/2014

... might be of interest to family/collectors, etc. I believe on-line/telephone bidding is available for the auction.
It also made me think if the Forum has a thread for such items, when spotted, to give a heads-up to Forum members ?
