I remember seeing an auction the other day that you mentioned in particular, that was vaguely described and had a whole ONE
picture with the rifle standing in the corner, at a distance where nothing was identifiable. Other than it was a Type 56. Seems like the price was $400.00-$500.00, too.
Many Sellers would do much better if they spent some actual time and effort in their presentation. A good clear layout with close-ups of the important areas that Buyers, and especially, the Collectors, are looking for/at would make GB and any of the other sales sites much more interesting.
There are a few Sellers on there that have really nice pic ideas and layout systems going for them. You mentioned one the other day, but I can't remember the Sellers GB name. His layouts were worth taking notes on for future use.
I like outdoor pics, but that's not always possible. So I'm trying different indoor lighting with various types of bulbs for indirect lighting. Now, if I can just find a place in the house besides my Kitchen countertop or the Kitchen table to use for my "layout" space!
Thanks for all your efforts on these reports RM! So easy to look through the previous month's offerings of any particular Type 56 a person is watching out for. Much appreciated! firstchoice
