A complete list, prepared by a third party as part of the estate's inventory, is available online. Although we have spot-checked the list and believe it to be accurate, RR Auction has not done a comprehensive one-for-one accounting of the lot versus the list. Due to the overwhelming size of this collection, it will be sold as is and no returns will be accepted. Interested parties are encouraged to view the collection in person at our offices or call us with specific inquiries. From the Tony Glover Collection.
