Those of you who may have even a passing interest in Benjamin Air Guns may have seen an accumulation (described as "Frank Mihalyi's Collection)of perhaps 12-15 pre-WW ll Benjamin Rifles and Pistols. These were offered by a gentleman from the St. Louis area who claimed that they came from "The Mihalyi Estate" and offered a "Certificate of Authenticity" c/w Frank's obit with each piece sold. All did sell on the first cycle, and then perhaps a month later a NYC Toy Dealer offered 5 or 6 a second time, with increased prices. Should anyone out there in our midst have bought one or more of these, or even knows someone who did, I'd like to hear from them. I'm only after information, I don't want to buy them! Thanks in advance-
