The Chevy Chase Auction Results

Here are the results from the pieces I picked out from this past weekend's Sloan's and Kenyon Auction. There are some very lucky people who walked away with great buys. Remember these sold prices do not reflect a 19.% buyers premium. So the buyers had to add that and sales tax to their final purchase price.
