Didn't Don Lang (with his Frantic Five) sing about this type of auctioneer on Six Five Special?
Must look it up but I am sure that there will be many on this forum who remember!

Now, now, give the guy a break, I suspect he is only doing that which he is expected to do..? I had thought to type "poor" guy, however I suspect he has sold a few million dollars of machinery during that auction, which after all is what he is there to do..?

I have only ever attended one auction and a local farmer took on the roll of auctioneer, he had a great line of patter to encourage bidding and he would throw in a couple of one liners if things seemed to slow up which worked very well indeed, and from having watched cattle/sheep/horse auctions on TV it seems farming types have the gift of the gab from spending so much time alone on the hills..?

As for the way things are done in the US, well we are ever following in their footsteps, so perhaps coming to Christie`s fine art sales any time soon...? laugh2
