Absolutely true, but Dixie probably out sold too soon - the prices in their "Dixie Collection" book are awfully low. But, if you read the descriptions, they had a lot of crap, too - stuff that would never sell in today's educated market. The real laugher, though is in the text. While there are little nuggets of truth, there are bush league mistakes as well - and some of the people he was sucking up to were not the experts he made them out to be. Too, Turner's homespun, clod-kicking attempts to buy up the real rarities still give me a chuckle! He was one hell of a businessman, though. What angered me about Dixie was that, once they took a position, that was it - for over 20 years, at least, they insisted that the rod they were selling for the .50-70 was correct. It wasn't. Thanks for reminding us of the Dixie TDs.
I never believed there were SO many STUPID people in this country. Start working now to take the Senate in 2014.
