The owner of a local auto auction, was one of the featured auctioneers Saturday, during a major antique tractor auction in Davenport, Iowa.

Lance Schmid, owner of Clinton Auto Auction, was one of many auctioneers that worked the Mecum (MEHK-um) Antique Tractor Auction at the Mississippi Valley Fair Center. Over 300 antique tractors dating back to the 1920's, were put up for sale, and sold for 5-to-20-thousand dollars. The auction was also telecast live on RFD-TV.

Here's Lance selling a tractor during the auction. Auctioneers call this "crying" because they keep the auction going and the bidders interested.
