I've never bid against either of them, but 70mm Widescreen made a decent haul. He seems to swoop in at the last minute and nab the nicest goodies. Noah27 did well, too. Price doesn't seem to matter, either. Kind of reminds me of "Raziz3009" who cleaned up on Bruce's big Bond auction in 2012. He nabbed just about all the major pieces to the tune of about $22,000 in just that auction alone!

70mmWidescreen and Noah27 are both tough competitors at auctions. I've won against both, but it takes bidding up to unbearable pain to do so.

Tho a smaller pic, I think I'd rather track down a copy of the US one sheet, instead. Cooler imagery, imo.

I'm not going to out the restorer on the forum...you have to remember they did an AMAZING job on the pieces...those actions were taken from self preservation mode during a turbulent time..they were clearly changing their practices..you also have to remember that the PIH Dracula one sheet scare and the lawsuit after affected multiple restoration services...not long after the Haggard fraud...the pieces were auctioned off years ago and were correctly described btw....I kept the Duck Soup...

I was using this as an example of why its not outlandish to think that outsourced restoration work from institutions and museums could take many shapes with significantly more work being done than just light conservation...I'm not even sure if your average smaller museum would have any paper expert available to consult them on the process and extent...especially since restorers adapt new practices and have deft artistic skill...

I'm skeptical of a single standard practice being implemented when it comes to paper restoration with so many institutions, museums and restorers operating so cavalierly.....just think....Posterfix claims to have worked with museums on their patron page... including The Smithsonian!!!!!

As long as you think they did an amazing job, is all that matters (even with the self-decided changes they chose to do to your property without either your permission or alerting you, until you happened to discover them, after the fact).   ;)

Backtracking with a question. How many copies of that King Kong Swedish 3-sheet are out there? It seems to pop up with regularity ever couple of years which says to me either there are several copies floating around out there, or it's one of the most "flipped" posters I know of.

I wonder?

HA has sold a copy of this 4x between 2010 and 2018, withe the last realized price being $26,290.00, this past April.

And this was an unbacked copy from the Kirk Hammett collection. https://movieposters.ha.com/itm/horror/king-kong-rko-1933-swedish-oversized-poster-255-x-47-/a/7178-86229.s?ic4=ListView-ShortDescription-071515

The same Hammett copy also sold in 2010 for $28,680.00: https://movieposters.ha.com/itm/horror/king-kong-rko-1933-swedish-oversized-255-x-47-/a/7019-85172.s?ic4=ListView-ShortDescription-071515

......hmmmm......I didn't know there was that much money in 70mm Widescreen equipment.  :o  He or she certainly spread it around in that auction. Congrats to him / her.

At this point I bet even his carpet is a bootleg. I actually use it when skinning over listings, does not matter what poster is in the image as soon as I see that carpet I move on.

If nothing else, that carpet looks to be from about 1975..lol. Earth tone shade, and all. But between that and the right side, indirect lighting setup, all loce's stuff is easily identifiable, at a glance.
