ON THE ROAD
(Page 2 of 2)
Proceeds from the sale will go to the Barnabas Foundation, a Christian organization that offers estate and gift planning for donors. George said Barnabas was a part of his church and offered a good way for him to ensure his funds went to the charities of his choice. The Schaaf Truck and Tractor Museum, he said, has actually become a part of Barnabas.
Kurt said the sale would constitute a 'multi-million dollar charitable contribution.' The market for anything rare changes all the time, Kurt explained, and what the tractors sell for that day will establish the value. 'It definitely ranks as an auction that will go down in the annals of tractor collecting history. It has everything that makes an auction great: rare tractors, great variety and a seller who is known and respected.'
Both George and Kurt said they had no idea how many people would personally attend but inquiries had arrived from around the world. Internet bid ding will be conducted during the sale.
Admission to the sale is $10, which also will be donated to Barnabas (or refunded with a purchase); included are a souvenir admission button and full-color catalog. The auction items may be previewed Thursday, Sept. 19, by per sons with admission buttons; a listing with photographs also is on the Aumann Auctions Web site (listed below), where Internet bidders can pre-register and anyone can find the final auction prices posted after the sale.
