The dollar volume this week was substantial:  $29,195,196.  So too the number of lots offered:  12,557.  The percentage of lots sold was down a bit at 63%.  It's too early to say if the weakness is a function of economic issues in Europe or the unsettled financial markets in the United States.  It could also reflect the upcoming US elections.  In any event the best material is enthusiastically selling when the estimates are inviting.
