High bid was 5,240. Low estimate was 150,000 and high estimate was 300,000. So we will see it again sometime since it would have been way off from the reserve. I think even the low estimate of 150,000 is well high of actual value since it was only used by him for 4 years and then used by his assistant the rest of the time. 4 years is nothing for a camera usage cycle of that time era and it obviously didn't suit him and the fact they couldn't tie any famous pictures to it. I would have said it would go for 50,000.

Hardly any of the other auction items are selling, reserves are all too high even on basic items that have minimal historical significance.
