How many people does it take to sell a Jewish Manuscript? More than You think

You know you are underselling your stock, when you find items you sold show up at auctions throughout the world. I just received the latest Kedem Auction catalog and was amused to see several items which I have sold on my site being offered. See here one of the items for example. We sold it on our site for $50 just a few months ago, it is being offered here for a starting bid of $200. It appears, that often there can be several dealers and auction houses in between the original owner and the end buyer

Overall a beautiful catalog, with lots of quality items. The focus of the auction house seems to be signatures and handwriting of lesser-known Eastern European Rabbis. It will be interesting to see how much this subject will pick up amongst collectors.
