I just made several purchases from a hotel liquidation sale. Amoung other pieces of weightlifting equipment, I purchased some dumbbells. The dumbells weigh 60, 65, 70, 75, 80, 90 ,100, 110 including a Berry's Barbbell rack. I basically got a steal on the price per pound, but my question is if their Ivanko dumbbells or not. Only the 90's, 100's, and 110's have the name on both ends of the plates. The others display the sizes, but are missing the Ivanko name on them. They all look identical, just wondering if they all are Ivankos or none at all.

Are the handles all identical? If so, they're probably all the same mfr.

Well if you live near Columbus Ohio, the sale is still going on. Basically the airport bought out the hotel, and they sent in liquidators from Michigan to get rid of everything before the hotel is demolished. Surprisingly, the hotel used to have memberships to their gym. The free weights are almost all gone. The lower half of the dumbbells was bought by a someone who was putting them in a local fire house. Amoung the dumbbells, I also bought some York plates
4-45s, 4-25s, and 2-10s totaling 290 pounds for $120 and a Trotter 0-90 incline bench for $110. Basically all the freeweights are gone besides several plates, but they have a bunch of Cybex machines still left. Including a bench press, power rack, smith machine, and a ton of other machines. The liquidators are trying to sell everything, cause what goes unsold they have to move back to Michigan. So for anyone interested in getting commerical equipment at a cheap price around Ohio, it might not hurt to check it out. Here is a partial link columbus.craigslist.org/spo/2842956348.html and below are pics of a York plate and Trotter bench I bought.

The handles are identical, I just thought it was weird that only the heaviest ones had the Ivanko name on them.
