Sorry I'm a bit late about this. This auction includes the last Allis Chalmers tractor (Deutz-Allis 6070), one of the biggest Allis Chalmers tractors (4W305) and a rare 220 FWA. On the second page there is a restored B112, a 718H with implements and a B series belly blade and 3 Allis G.

That auction was apparently a disaster. Many of the winning bids were not accepted due to a court ordered "right of first refusal."  The Allis Chalmers.com forum is in an uproar over it.

Too many lights in that building for my wallet. 

"right of first refusal."

 

If this was noted on the sale bill or mentioned to the crowd before the sale I'm afraid the complainers aren't going to get very far.

Without all the details, I have to go on my gut instincts. The family is wearing rose colored glasses and allowed their sentimentality to get in the way. I'm not saying the offers weren't lowball, but the people who collected those tractors are a thinning herd and the tractors may well end up with a much less spectacular end than being owned or used by a current collector.
The owners refused the bids (as is their right) and the Auction Company has gotten a bad reputation for it. They got their cut, I'm certain... But those may be the highest bids those tractors see and the next auction like this will get even lower attendance and bids.
20 years ago, this would've been a banging auction with major dollars involved... Times, they are a changing

The tractors mostly all brought very healthy money.  $60,000 + For an AC 220 FWA, that's tied with the last record sale price.

I thought I understood that some people on the internet felt the prices were low and others that the rejections were unfair.

Good friend of mine was there and helped out a bit. Lot of unhappy people but in the ladies defense she prolly would have kept more had the court not ordered her to auction some off . Always sad to see family's fight over simple things like money.

That is one of the worse things that happens when someone dies even with a will.
