The United Kingdom "Massey Movement" has just witnessed the largest auction of Massey Harris memorabilia, toys, spare parts, barn machinery, implements, tractors and combines since 2011 and the late Ian Robertson's M-H sale in Scotland.
This two part auction has taken place over the last week in the very rural village of Marsham in Norfolk on the Eastern side of England.
it was the M-H collection owned by Bob Parke who some of you in both the USA and Canada will remember, some visiting his annual vintage show over the recent years.
It was a superb weekend for Massey Enthusiasts and Friday evening at The Marsham Arms" Public House, it was an ideal location for a great get together with superb food and accommodation for the evening.
The UK "Massey Men's Meet" was a wonderful way to start the proceedings for the Saturday's onsite auction.
I arrived Friday mid day and managed to take some photographs before the event commenced, as I knew there would be a lot of talking and discussion with collectors from all over the country on Saturday.
The literature, toy and some memorabilia had been subject to an online only auction which ended the previous Monday, some items not reaching their reserves, others selling very realistically and the occasional item making very good prices.
Friday afternoon I collected my 22 lots which I had bought online.
To start with here are a few general shots of the sale and more will follow later.
