If we lose the Archives from Julia's website, we will be losing a great tool for buyers and collectors. I'm not sure Morphy's is ready to be that customer friendly. If you want to bid on an unsold item, just call them and make an offer.

I hope that the pis---ng contest here is over. I wonder if Jim's Brother in Law will also move on to Morphy's? I was really disappointed when they came to look at my collection and lowballed every thing even though my request had gone out to Julia's. I am now looking toward Rock Island and Heritage Auctions. Any thoughts on either would be appreciated.

Best Regards, George

No thoughts on either Rock Island or Heritage auctions.

Regards to Julia's "lowballing." Well that is just their estimate. Julia's do not buy the guns. The bidding public at an auction is who in the end determines what the gun was worth on that date/time.

Bill,

I think Morphy has screwed the pooch. I just now tried to access some links to Julia auction listings I had bookmarked. They were all there before the "merger", but now the links are no good.

I'm not finding the Julia archives at all. I hope I have just searched incorrectly, but I think not.

Looks like my auction dabbling has hit a wall! They can keep the stuff if it has come to this. I was a big Julia fanboy, and they got a lot of my money. Sad day.

CptCurl,

You can get to the past auction archives. However, you can't search the entire repository. You have to search auction by auction.

I use this link JJ archives.

Searching auction by auction is absolutely bogus. That's not what I want to do. For decades, I have searched the entire past auction history. That's what I want to do now.

So this development begs the question. Does limiting access to previous auction results encourage higher future prices (and thus commissions)?

Depends on whether prices are on upward or downward trend. Hard to tell. Perhaps they're just tired of being used as "free appraisal service" for those not using their services.

Agree, but that is what is available right now. Send them an email to fix it.
