Click on the gray lot# button to see the scans. Beginning at 9PM Eastern on closing night, I am waiting for 6 solid minutes of no bids, phone calls, emails or faxes, at which point I shut down the bidding on all the lots (in that half of the auction) at once. If the auction is still alive at Midnight, the 6-Minute rule turns into the 3-Minute rule. In the event of a computer or other calamity, the auction will close one week later. Please use the SEARCH FEATURE, it will catch anything I missed in the Table of Contents, which is also a helpful tool and can be printed off the website.

Final Bid
 (Boats / Ships) (3 Taylor &Huntington views) #2547 “US Steamer MASSASOIT in James River, 1864.” (Image VG+, mt About G.), #6244 (James River from Libby Prison Hill, Richmond, image mostly VG but lightens distant, mt VG) and #6277 (badly damaged smoke stack of Rebel Ram VIRGINIA, tiny bit of print missing at top, some light fox and soil, tones VG, mt VG) MB$135.  
$ 135
 (Inc RR & Ship) (2 T&H views) #831 “Thirteen inch mortar DICTATOR.” (Info on back explains that the gun was mounted on a flatbed RR car, and would quickly move right after it sent a volley, so the Confederate response would hit nothing, image mostly VG+ to Exc., lighter over distant hills, mt Exc.) And #2541 “Gunboat MENDOTA in James River near Deep Bottom, 1864.” (About 11 miles SE of Richmond. Sidewheeler uses up most of the width of the view. Image VG, mt VG+ to Exc.) MB$135.  
$ 135
 T&H #217 “Non-commissioned Officers’ Mess, Co. ‘D,’ 93rd NY Infantry.” (At Bealton, Virginia, Aug 1863) Image Exc., mt VG. MB$125.

$ 100 *
 (Ship) T&H #6619 “Waiting for Exchanged Prisoners.” (Flag-of-Truce sidewheeler NEW YORK. Damning info on back is likely part propaganda and part truth, describes starved Union prisoners and ‘fat, healthy, well-fed and well-dressed’ Rebel prisoners. According to google, both sides treated the prisoners poorly, with the death rate a bit higher for the Union soldiers.) Tones a bit lighter in right print. Image overall VG to VG+, mt Exc. MB$100.
