News from mjdtools.com World Headquarters

G reetings from Avoca, New York, where we appreciate those of you who support our auctions more than we can express in words.

Last weekend's Online Only Antique Tool Auctions were a huge success. There were a total of 349 successful bidders and many more who finished out of the running. Thanks to all who participated in the November 13th and 14th auctions that lived up to their billing in being a great spectator sport. We had a porch full of boxes to ship today and will have many, many more next week. As always, if you are in a hurry to receive your purchases, just let us know and we will move you up in the line as a courtesy.

We picked up a great collection in Western Michigan last week and we have much more to add as we undertake in earnest the building of nine great auctions for 2021. If you have items for inclusion in our upcoming sales, please give us a call at (800) 869-0695 or by email at mjd@mjdtools.com .

Today's Photo Montage shows some of the many high value items sold in last Saturday's final sale of 2020. Hay trolleys, firearms and antique tools make for a great mix and we are looking forward to more of each in the years to come. See you all in 2021.

Today's Featured Tool Description

Mathieson & Son, A./Glasgow : Lignum Sole Smooth Plane. Original Decal. Rare & Near New. Length: 7.50 Inches. Scottish planemaker Alexander Mathieson offered smoothing planes of the very highest quality that were fitted with a dovetailed lignum sole. Most collectors' experience with these planes has been through research. We are pleased to offer an example of one of these rare extra quality planes in much the same condition as it would have been when it left the Mathieson factory. Complete with nearly all original finishes and much of the original decal, this spectacular plane is ready to be used and admired, either alternately or consecutively. (FINE). This item was sold on April 27, 2001 for $175.00. jpg_file
