I guess collectors are the same whether it concerns >Leica MPs or HCB prints. > As I said in the first message, they HCBprints were lousy and I do not know why anybody wanted them At the auction there was a young guy sitting in the row just in front of me and he often started the bidding but he bid only on prints of less know photographers, and if there were more bidders he just stopped. He got a handful of plainly beautiful prints, and all at less than a thousand marks each. I think his collection is probably much more interesting than a big name collections. I can kick myself for not having exchanged addresses with him. If it had been a camera auction I guess he would have bought user-Leicas instead of mint condition ones.
