Record results at Smythe Autograph Auction

Manhattan, New York - January 24, 2008 - New York auction house RM Smythe & Co, Inc held one of the auctions of autographs most successful in its 125 year history on Thursday, January 17 May 2008. The sale, with the collection Steven Lee Carson, saw a record 77 percent of lots sold. Although the auction has suffered some delays due to technical problems with E-Bay Live Auctions, at the end of the bidders on the floor, on the phone, and their teams and bring home a remarkable variety of historical autograph and Americana.

Unsurprisingly, price increases, the hammer was won by a letter written by President Abraham Lincoln, asking Secretary of War Edwin Stanton to approve the resignation of a cavalry captain, at the request of the woman officer. Lincoln, most often a key "soft" in these cases is the argument that "we are quickly obtain an undue proportion of officers. "The letter sold for $ 14.500, excluding the buyer's premium. The great emancipator is not the only family member that the high prices. A couple of letters, 1869 (An incomplete) by its widow, who refers to him as having been "in my eighteenth year - Always - lover - husband - father and all, all for me - truly my all, "Led to more of the same, $ 13,000.

One of the most exciting possibilities at any auction is to see a very beginning that a modest price increase and the opening of the elevation. This is precisely what happened with a score extremely rare autograph signed by the artist in her beloved Norman Rockwell original concept sketch for one of his covers for The Saturday Evening Post. An autograph note typical by the author could make about $ 200-300, and the chance was a conservative estimate of $ 650. Because the bids received by mail before the auction, Lot is open to $ 2,000, led to furious bidding a final price of $ 5,500. Another high climber was a fascinating typewritten letter signed by Theodore Roosevelt as president during his negotiation of the treaty ending the Russo-Japanese complain about the hardness of both sides. Estimated to $ 2,500, sold for $ 8,500. As well beyond shooting his estimate was a signed copy of the book Woodrow Wilson, why we are at war, estimated $ 700 and sold for $ 3,000, a record price. According to the American book prices today was the first copy sold at auction in thirty years.

When asked why these lots were estimated so low, Smythe Bob Litzenberger explained that in some cases, there was not the results of recent sales to use as a reliable guide. He added that there are strategic advantages to setting conservative estimates, too. "Estimates higher, even if you're convinced a lot can reach them, discourage bidding. When element opens low, more bidders to participate, even if is so high that only people with deep pockets can stay in the game, it is auction more fun for everyone. If you know you can get into action, you come back, and you're going to bid on other items and win them. Shippers are also much happier when something sells much higher than expected they are when you sell it for a bit less. They also know that we shall not give false hopes just to seize their materials. "

As usual, the first Presidents and first ladies have been a hot topic, with a very special letter to Abigail Adams, who sympathizes with a friend whose son died in the battle bringing $ 7000. A great document signed by her husband, authorizing a letter of marque for the Quasi-War with France, which sells for $ 6,000.
