Fischer Auction Research Report 2014 (pic intensive)

Postby Derek Wassom » 09 Sep 2014 06:06

Once again I had the honor and pleasure of examining items for the upcoming arms and armor auction at Fischer Auction House in Luzern, Switzerland. As always, there is never enough time to take all the measurements I would like, but I hope you find this information useful.

Special thanks to the staff of Fischer, and especially Dr. Maeder for their wonderful hospitality.

You can find information about the auction at their website here: http://www.fischerauktionen.ch/index.aspx?l=en
