What's it Worth?? / USS Embattle MSO - 434 Belt buckle

Any idea on how much it's worth?

Anyone know what these might be worth? I can upload pics if needed, but they're ceramic (I believe) colorful, and don't say made in germany, they just say "Germany", and they're in decent shape!

General Storage Auction Talk / My Friday will be BUSY!

I attended my first auction a few days ago, but I'm going to an auction(s) on friday that is from 9:00am-2PM!!! Going to six different locations with the SAME auctioineer, I had to call around to find this auction, and it seems promising!!! I can not wait, I hope I pull ahead! I'll keep you all posted, I also had a couple Q's I would appreciate answered! I'm still a bit of a noobie :(


1: I do not have a truck, nor a garage, I'm bringing about 600$, and I know I'll be buying multiple units, should I invest in a uhaul truck, and take all my goodies down to the flea market the next day? Or just barrow a friend's ford ranger?

2: Do you sell to thrift stores? Do they give decent prices? Should I take everything down to the flea market than bum the scraps off at the thrift store(s)?

That's about it, thanks guys!

Thanks Drew! That sounds perfect!

Thanks guys! Keep in mind I bought the couch with no place to store it because it was such a killer deal! haha it'll go quick, but anyways, do you guys travel to storage auctions? what is the max you would travel? I'm in pensacola florida, which our town gets 1 auction a month (or so) that's posted on auctionzip, should I call other storage facilities to find out their next scheduled auction? Do not all places use auctionzip?

Well I'm an 18 year old college student getting into this business right now.
I recently attended my first auction, it was divided into individual items and boxes, I bought a clayton marcus couch for 35 bucks, my first big win, it's a 300$ peice already sold!

Any tips for this noobie?
