“The County 1474 is bound to be of interest for classic tractor enthusiasts. The Roger Austin collection will be popular amongst vintage collectors.”

“As always, the collective sales offer up items, which are rare to the market. We look forward to seeing buyers, old and new., at the sale.

As with the April auction, Cheffins has decided to return all sections of the sale to offering both live onsite and online bidding.

This is on the back of “continued” demand from the collecting market for in-person bidding.

Due to the large sales consignment, the sale of agricultural and automotive literature, prints and pictures will take place on Friday, July 22nd, 2022.
