Diamonds Are Forever Gala Brochure
I am figuring this is a holy grail of Bond Premiere Brochures.  While not a London premiere, it was the Only UK premiere for what I can only assume was a smaller venue than what was afforded in London.
The brochure is in essentially mint condition, a superb example from 14th January 1972.  No tears, missing pages, stains, creases, fading.  All corners are crisp.

So everything sold ok.  But, while the Diamonds brochure went for the perfectly healthy 900, this price was only realised by two dudes duking it out a couple of days before the end.

I had 28 watchers and I work on a general rule of thumb that 1/3 of watchers may actually bid.  No one did!  Not sure if the sum prior to the end of the auction had already by then bypassed everyone else's budget but the way things were going, I figured it might have squeaked over the 1k mark.

What are others' experiences of watcher to bidder ratios?
