Great auction buys! Were they sold separately or as one lot? The Victor II looks pretty nice.

No Victor II, it is an E .
The auctioneer is a good friend and allowed me to contact the sellers. I offered to buy them before they went on the block. John advised the family to sell them to me as it was a farm auction and may not bring much . The daughter said let him have them, son said no . They went to auction. Sold the Vic E ( no crank), no real interest. I got it $150. Parts lot ( literally computer boxes of cabinets and parts) brought a little more than twice what the Victor E got. After auction fees they got $420. I offered them $600. Oh well the son is in the doghouse I guess
