I was a little wrong on the prices. I ask what the buyer fee was at the SOS and I was told it was 23%. On another thread I read this included an extra value tax. It sounds like I wouldn't of had to pay that tax. Should have researched the total costs a little better and I would have bid higher on a few items.

I did sign up but couldn't find the buckles. Which auction are they in (date and auction number)?
I have not attended a SOS. So could you explain the increase(23%/extra value tax) in the price of items purchased. Was this for online bidding?
Hello Kurt, Look in Auction #68 May 13-15,2014 under the John Perpera Collection section. The subsection #2 is the John Wahl Buckle collection. Lots #8299 thru 8394. There's a few in there that will make your ears smoke, like a Hitler Youth Leader for 12,500 Euros!

Thank you, now I have the auction. My mistake was to look under past auctions only, whereas they still have this auction listed as the current one. Indeed some surprising results, especially considering fees, transportation costs and, unless one is very lucky, import duty and VAT will be on top. If the final destination is Germany, this might mean a further 60% on top of the auction price!
