On a beautiful Saturday morning in Elgin, Illinois, about 40 license plate scavengers attended the Damisch estate auction of about 425 lots of license plates….the entire event was professionally managed by the Bunte Auction House…plate lots were well-displayed, the auction room was comfortable and spacious, and food service was available…starting promptly at 10:00 am, the auction ran for almost seven hours, much to the displeasure of my Plate Princess, who took several ‘shopping breaks ‘ of her own to nearby malls!…we were ‘successful’ in winning about 150 plates, most within our preferred range of 1927-1931 vintages…one of our personally coveted plates included a 1931 Haiti treasure…all in all, a great way to spend the day!
