NWALTA just to explain the string a little more: there are two lots (50132 and 50133) in the catelogue with that grade with 33 and 6 pelts respectively. The 6 are the show/viewing lot ones for buyer inspection. They are in a string of 39 with 2 lots (33 + 6). Things like muskrats have many lots in a single grade to make up a string. Sometimes they all go the same price and sometimes there is a slight difference.

Muskrats 80351, 3x-2x Select Heavy are graded but not in the catalogue. They are fresh and have not gone up for a sale yet so not sold PT. Holding for next sale?

Saskfly my buddy and I both have a red fox on our accounts, in same lot, with the lot not listed either. Seen this before. They went PT before the sale. They do this if they figure they get a good enough offer/order before the sale. Relative to recent 'rat prices suspect you got a good price for them given the grade. Seem like top lot or near.

One of my lynx is upgraded. Unsure what that means as I don't believe I sent any junk to the sale.

Looking forward to sale Ö good to see trapping friends excited about something again. Hope sale continues to trend up .. last sale gave some promise on some species. Friends of mine got a top lot marten (80 us value) and another some SEL Black Wolves . They should do well if last sale an indication. Hopefully rats move, and coyotes repair a little more

CDN not sure if people noticed but last 2 years top lot marten at FHA are in several lots. This sale they are in lots 001 - 003. 256 skins, identical grade, in a string of 3 lots. Any skin in lots 001 - 003 is a top lot marten. The odd time there will be a small price difference in those lots if the auctioneer allows what they call "a drop". Not sure why a drop is allowed but you see it if you watch live auction enough on some lots in various strings.

BTW for those who may be wondering, although access is not showing on the FHA website yet, the auction is supposed to be broadcast as in the past few years.

You mean the ones like this one (for those that don't know what Mud is talking about).

Is that one of the Gd DGD or how do you think it graded?
There was one in my bag that my dog got to. Nicely put up winter beaver, all ripped, and the worst grades on mine are GD DGD
