The catalog is out! Some of you have already received it and the rest of you should probably put a sleeping bag next to your mail box...

It looks like a "third and fourth mortgage" auction - many nice things I MUST have  ;) Start saving, or dig into your childrens college funds.

A few little things slipped by in the catalog. Here are a few errata:
Lot 47 is Chalco, not C. Bravos.
Lot 219 is Campeche, not Chiapas. The image shows a Campeche 8R at least.
Lot 246 is from plate II. I've never heard of a plate I stamp where you could see any of the design of the stamp above or below.
Lot 269 is most likely plate II, since Lagos didn't get any plate I stamps.
Lot 358 is probably from plate II. A short transfer like this doesn't exist on plate I, as far as I know.
Lot 409 is an unoverprinted stamp canceled Huejutla. There's no obvious connection to Ixtlahuaca  ;)
Lot 552 Invoice number is of course 61 1864, not 64 1864.
Lot 770 and 771: images are swapped.

A few Eagle invoice numbers are wrong, but I'm sure you'll find those yourself. They are of no importance, as far as I can tell.

I did not check the Maxi, 1868 and later issues. There are probably no errors in those sections... ;D

NOTE: If you visit Nick's web site you'll find out how to get his latest price catalog of Mexico Classic stamps...

Nick has confirmed booking at the hotel for Saturday October 25, 2014.

The "catalog making" is still in progress. I will update his web site when I get more information.

You can contact Nick if you need to, but be aware that he's working and may not reply as soon as you'd like. Please don't bother him if you can help it - we need him to make a great auction  ;)

I'm looking for plane tickets...

Good luck to all and I hope to see you in Reno.
