MGEX To Auction Historic Cash Tables

Kelly Marshall

histcash25_2MGEX is auctioning off seven antique cash tables in a public, online auction this month. The tables being offered are over a century old and were used on the historic trading floor of the Minneapolis Grain Exchange, now just known as MGEX, which was established in 1881 and is celebrating 135 years this year.

From October 10 through October 28, bidders may submit offers for the unique tables on which actual cash market trading occurred. They would have been at the center of trade where producers, processors and millers gathered over wheat, oats, corn and other commodities, showing and evaluating the grain being offered.

More details on the tables will be released later this week on the MGEX website where you can learn more about the bidding process.
