Ted, I would like to thank you and your staff for the professional manner in which your organization handled the sale of my train collection. My train collection was a significant part of my life savings. Therefore it was

very important to me that I receive the highest possible value for it. Your auction process from beginning to end was very professional and well orchestrated but most of all effective.

It began by first meeting with you in my home to see my trains. We established a sale date and reviewed the process along with your terms and conditions. Then

members of your staff: John Kiefel and Jim Regener arrived at my home to put the process in motion. Keeping my best interest in mind they carefully sorted, arranged, and catalogued my entire collection, using several reference books and their many years of experience in preparing toy trains for sale by auction. I was equally impressed with the way Frank, another member of your team followed up by carefully packing, shipping, and displaying my trains at your auction facility.

On sale day I was quite apprehensive and nervous as to be expected. However your auction staff greeted me and made me feel at ease. They communicated with me during the sale and kept me updated with the progress. I was more than pleasantly surprised with the final results from the auction proceeds. I believe that my decision to liquidate my train collection through "sale-by-auction"; with Ted Maurer was the correct choice.

I would recommend your services to my colleagues and friends who would like to sell their train collections.

Once again, I would like to thank you and your staff for a job well done.

Sincerely :

Ray Dennis
