    of one man, Mr. Doodle Harris. In the continued efforts of his admirable
    accomplishment, a portion of proceeds from this auction will benefit charity.

    Over $5 million has been invested in these items that have been monumental
    in American History; they will all be sold with NO MINIMUM and NO RESERVE....(continue)

    BB I have heard that Doodle has been ill for quite awhile, I just can't remember the details and would never want to print the wrong information.

    The list of auction items was quite impressive, to say the least. I'm not a collector, but I'm sure that collectors were drooling over some of those items.
