This was a KILLER piece but once again, I could not find a single comp value. I was going to price it really high and take offers but then another dealer friend suggested it might not be 100 years old like I thought so I lost some of my confidence and gave it a moderate price and wound up taking a lower offer of course. Still, not a bad sale and it sold pretty quick and that's worth putting your hands in the air for.

Antique Yad Silver Judaica Torah Pointer

This was the mystery item of the day. I had no idea what it was but eventually one of my dealer friends helped me figure it out. It's basically an old school book pointer used by Hebrew folk in particular. I see a lot of stuff but I can't possibly know everything which is why I keep in touch will lots of other collectors and dealers to keep me in the know.

I'll be honest in saying that we don't get many premium items that sell in the thousands. This was a very unassuming piece but when I saw what it was and did some research I knew that it was something that very few collectors would have and deserved to sell for a high price. Again, instead of letting people bid on such an obscure item, I started the bid at the minimum price I thought would be fair.
