Some beautiful items at this next Potter auction.
A first edition of EATCT, some of Junior's old dice, some of Juniors dice tools - and a whole lot of Will and Finck trimmers and Faro accessories.

Breathtaking and a dazzling array of collectible items from a previous era...the golden age of gambling chicanery. A literal testimonial of human ingenuity designed to deceive one's fellow man.

However, I prefer to say "I salivated" rather than "drooled." (It sounds more "dignified" that way...I think?)

Bones! What are you doing?

Only a fool would create competition for himself (or me).

Geez, I must be losin' it ... sorry Jason!

Hopefully the pieces I want don't catch anybody else's eye (including yours!) :)

I have been looking at this one too, some really nice stuff. I may even have to take a run down there for the preview.

Does anyone here know Bob Rosenberger?

I've known him for over a decade and was on his mailing list at one time. We're not close but I've met him on a few occasions.

Thanks Jason. I was wondering if there was a way to get additional info on an item directly from Mr Rosenberger, but I was able to figure it out from the pictures.
