Jacques M. Littlefield had a famous collection and he personally displayed them on History Channel or other television documentaries.  Unfortunately Jacques passed away a few years ago and it appears whomever inherited his estate wants to cash-out his collection.  Or maybe they are just liquidating a portion of his collection.  I believe he had much more than what is being auctioned.  Probably his estate trustees already cherry-picked the most valuable collections and these are the leftovers.  Jacques as I recall purchased a Panther that got stuck in in river in Poland and he spent a lot of time restoring it to pristine condition.  The Panther does not appear in the auction.

I had planned on registering to visit the museum but sounds like they will shut it down.

When I saw this on Fox News I could make out a Panther in the background. So saying that you believe they are liquidating a portion of the collection makes more sense.

Cant believe a Pz IV is $1.7 mil, most of the Shermans are around $300 K , must be the rarity of German armour that raises the price.

Some prices & more pics

One of the highlights was an extremely rare German 8-ton half-track Sd.Kfz. 7 sold for more than $1.2 million. Built in 1942, the 12-man crew transport, one of 12,187 built by German manufacturers, was used to tow medium-sized artillery while transporting 11 gun-crew members and ammunition.
