This post is a result of file maintenance here on The Forum. It previously referenced a lot of ebay info that is no longer available, and it had a lot of comments attached regarding the bidding, etc., which is no longer available for reference. It was interesting at the time of the bidding, but this post was soon obsolete, and therefore the info has been removed.
Rather than remove the post all together I'm using it as a post holder now with a changed title, to help direct research traffic to the relevant threads in the archives.
For anyone interested in seeking 23' Commander info, the following threads now referenced below should be some good hunting ground for you,
