Ritchason Auctioneers Inc. wrapped up its 2011 auction schedule with the annual winter sale at its auction headquarters in Lebanon, Tenn., on Dec. 17.
A terrific crowd of 573 registered bidders, 97 of those online, and equipment enthusiasts turned out for this sale. One item that drew particular interest was an antique Cat 3H pull type grader, which inspired a number of attendees to share stories of their fathers or other relatives using one “in the old days.” The antique went to a lucky bidder for $2,300.
According to Sandy Montana of Ritchason, “December is typically one of our smaller auctions from the year but this year it seems it went really well for a December auction.”
