An Interesting Lot at our Militaria Auction

The shashka was the highlight of our October 2017 Militaria auction, selling above it's £4-6k estimate for £7,000 to a phone bidder against the internet. Overall the sale was similarly successful with a healthy sale rate & competitive bidding throughout, indicative of the continued strength of the military market.
