266511 Paul Drake <bdbafh@g...> 2018‑09‑14 About that spittoon ...
Newbie here.

I'm looking at the catalog for the MJD auction being held tomorrow, page

The spittoon in the lower left corner sold for $2860. It wasn't polished.

So why would anyone polish the spittoon removing its patina?

Just wondering.  Thanks.
