Auction to net $100,000
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - A wrecked Crosley automobile
went for $40, an experimental gyro-copter brought in $575, a
200-year-old mahogany and tapestry love seat was sold for $425
and a 16th Century dining room set believed made for King
Charles of Spain went for $3400. Those were just a few of the
items for sale Thursday in an auction of the estate of Urban
Charles Brenner, who lived alone in a mansion near downtown
Indianapolis. Brenner died July 28. The 10,000 persons attending
the sale in the Horticulture Building at the Indiana State
Fairgrounds made it the largest auction in Indianapolis history.
The sale lasted well into the late evening, and auctioneer
James A. Marsh predicted gross sales would top $100,000.
