You can now view the Oct 23 Morphy Auction' catalog online.

Some nice flintlock pistols rifles at inflated estimates as usual.

Thanks for the heads up.  Though I seldom have funds to participate, it sure is fun to look over the offerings and drool.  :)
My profile picture is my beloved K9 best friend and soulmate, Buster Brown, who passed away in 2018.  I miss you buddy!

I've purchased a few guns from antique auctions over the years. It's fun until you get the bill with the Buyers Premium attached! Morphys wants 20% and Skinners wants 25%.

If you live in Germany, you have to add 20 - 25% for taxes etc.
THAT really hurts :'( 
Kind regards from Germany, Chris
