I think there were 8 complete Lister Ds for sale today (ignoring the pumps incorrectly listed as engines!) and, as you might expect with so many offered in the same provincial dispersal sale; the prices were low. However, they were generally what might be described as older restorations and with little effort could all have been transformed into runners. Lot 465 a Spec 13 s/n 104157 with shaft drive magneto was the oldest and made 80, but this was not the highest price; Lot 468 s/n 136728 made 90 as did Lot 473 a 28 DH. At the other end of the scale; Lot 467 only made 65. So, in my opinion all were bargains with an average price of about 75, (although 20% buyer's premium must be added to these hammer prices!). The pumps, on the other hand, made better money .... . All prices are now available to view on line.

It always amazes me that a Lister Domestic pump can often fetch more than a D Type engine? Even a nice Lee Howl pump made less money.

I'm not sure that any of the engines or pumps were bargains when the 20% premium is added, although I did think the Lister shearer sharpening wheel was good value (bought by a local trader) as you don't see them very often.

Yes that interested me as well Phillip, I don't think that I have ever come across one for sale before and wasn't sure if it was actually complete as I haven't seen one 'in the flesh' so to speak. Certainly worth a punt anyway, and no doubt the trader will be selling it on!

You could have asked me to bid for it, Charles...... a bit late now. Hope Mrs C is feeling better.

Could be interested at a sensible sort of price Phillip. No harm in asking, we were away anyway when the auction was on but I have never won anything at one anyway!. However I would imagine that he will want a decent profit from it as he obviously knows what it is so it may remain on my 'one day I might just find one of those on a tat stall very cheaply' list along with many other items. Rather like the 50p jumble sale items that are valued on the Antiques Roadshow at ten grand. I guess we all have a 'wish list' but know deep down that the items on it will remain just that; wishes!
