I picked up a few last week in the Heritage sales, although I missed out on all the British pieces I was interested in when they went for crazy money. Overall though I though the prices were pretty reasonable and people could have gotten some good deals. I was able to pick up a couple of Ancients, one German states piece and one Italian, I love the historical context of the Ancients.
