Jack Naylor parting with awesome photography collection

If I had a million dollars, never mind twenty million. I would buy new gear...
But it's still fun to dream and fantasize too.

This is semi off topic, but probably of interest to anyone interested in
photography. National Public Radio carried a news item about the world's
largest private camera collection, owned by a self made millionaire by the
name of Jack Naylor. His collection is "Up for Grabs" - for $20 million.
The collection contains everything from many forms of spy cameras to an 8x10
Deardorf that was used for many years to image Playboy's centerfolds.
The collection also includes many early photographs of historical
significance.
Here is a PDF that describes his collection:

Naylor apparently lives in Massachusetts and exhibits his collection by
appointment; has by chance anyone seen it?
FYI - I have no connection with either Naylor or the sale of the collection.

    Great collection, wow! I would reword your post to omit "sale". The selling of goods on the site is prohbited. Just a word of caution.

    Great post BTW. :)

    I'm not selling anything here!! And No one here could buy it.
    Besides, this took place 5 years ago.

    Should it still be a problem!? Tough Love is best...

    I think we can make an exception to the "No sales" policy as very few of us are in this league... :((

    If anyone has a chance to see it, a report might be interesting.

    Might I ask, why this Forum, does Not have a Sales portion? Most hobby forums do.
    Not that I need one, as I'm not in the market to buy , and have no items to sell.

    Sales sections have been tried in the past and we have found for this forum it works best if we keep it limited to discussions only.

    That's a very satisfactory reply, thank you Msmoto.
    I appreciate that. And will follow the guidelines set out about not referring to non supporters of the Blog and Forum.

    By the way, thanks for sharing the info about the actual supporters of this website.
    I hope any one in the market for expensive photography gear, will simply search for the best prices they can find,
    and then simply request a price match, through the best or favoured dealerships of their choice.

    Neat collection but I can't figure out what all the drama is about, Chas.
    Your rude remarks towards the members of this forum reminded me of a line in the movie Stripes. It went something like this, "Lighten Up, Francis".

    No problem Chas, I wrote it more as a funny then anything.
    That is an incredible collection but if I had $20 million to spend I think I'd buy an island in the Caribbean instead. ;)
