Not your run of the mill stuff - not much furniture or typical collectibles, but lots of other very cool stuff....
Let's start with the items everyone is lusting after....the McIntosh stereo components....4 pieces in cabinet> MR71 Tuner, MI-3 performance indicator, C22 Sterophonic pre-amp, MC 2505 solid state amp -- plus extra Panloc McIntosh mounting brackets, a Dual 1019 turntable and an Ampex Reel to Reel tape player.

We will sell the entire setup as one piece - 6 components total, 4 are McIntosh. An INCREDIBLE SET-UP! No warranty on electronics.
Next up is the watch and clock items....we will offer about 27 Hamilton US Navy chronometers, dated in the 1940's, model 22, 21 jewels - some working, some not. Most are complete to best of my knowledge. They are not your big chronometers housed in wooden boxes. They measure 3" in diameter and 1-3/4" deep. They are awesome little beasts.
