The last Harmer Manning Auction on the East coast

H R Harmer, the company that sold the Caspary collection, the Hind collection and the Roosevelt collection was acquired by Greg Manning auctions several years ago. When the Manning Afinsa deal began to disastrously unravel, the remaining company wisely dropped the Manning name and kept the prestigious Harmer moniker for their auctions. The company has decided to end Nutmeg sales and move the company to California. They promise to continue having auctions in a new and improved version (we’ll see) but what is clear is that large collection auctions for dealers, specialists and accumulators of the kind that the Harmer Manning organization has been holding for over sixty years on the East coast will no longer exist. I am going to this last Harmer auction today- to view lots, see old friends, and to see what this says about the changing face of our business and our hobby. And I’ll be blogging tomorrow and Saturday about what I see and hear.
