Does it mean the lot has been withdrawn by the consignor?


If withdrawn, likely the notation would be "withdrawn" rather than "closed." "Closed" implies a private treaty sale prior to the auction at a price the consignor accepted which Kelleher felt obligated to pass on to the consignor.

It is not hard to spot such a lot if offered elsewhere, even if it is broken up into say three parts.

Now in the old days, before the NY UN limited the amount of mail you could mail at the NY UNPA Office, pennies on the dollar would pay for lots of auction catalog shipment postage. Same would be true from the two other offices.

Now another possibility is this was a 'back door' or 'fell off the truck' lot that was spotted by the UNPA. If one person purchase this entire lot retail over the counter, the UNPA would likely be aware. But that too should get a withdrawn rather than closed proper comment.

Have never seen "withdrawn" on SAN. I have listened to auctions being called live on SAN and withdrawn lots were noted as "closed". In any case I vote for a private treaty sale. If there was an offer it would be smart to take it. Likely a party like Mystic or another big player.

While I have dealt little with SAN, the fact a honestly withdrawn lot is listed as closed is quite misleading. Withdrawn does signal a number of real possible outcomes which does not include closing after a floor auction. Here in this circumstance we know something was up, but once the date of the sale passes, the closed will have a generic meaning which is misleading.

Withdrawn lots are withdrawn for good reasons, ownership questions, description questions, condition questions, questions of genuineness, and prior sale.

In summary, your comment, provides one well deserved demerit for SAN in my mind.
