Mr. D. Crothers, Sydney, Australia
'I would just like to thank both of you for your patience and all of your considerate and timely email responses to all of my questions in connection with your 16/17 July auction. This was the first time I participated in an IAA auction and the two of you have made it a wonderful experience. I was elated at how easy it was to participate in an auction overseas, in many ways you made it far simpler then when I have participated in auctions right here in the United States. I saw that IAA is a highly professional organization. The item was exactly as described and it came through the post unscathed. I am a fully satisfied client of IAA and I look forward to participating in future auctions.'
Mr A Friedman, New York, USA
