When an autograph of Button Gwinnett, a signer of the Declaration of Independence from Georgia, sold at auction, Mr. Hancock and four other bidders each tried to buy the rarity for an institution he represented at the sale--one man bid on behalf of the Phildelphia History Museum. The bidding, which started at $125,000, continued until four of the bidders dropped out, leaving one elated possessor of America's rarest signature. Given the clue that follow, can you determine the highest final bid each man made and the organization for whom he was bidding?

  1. John's final bid was for $50,000 more than Mr. Chase's and for $75,000 more than the man bidding on behalf of the Patriots House of Wax.
  2. George, who isn't Mr. Adams, isn't the one who bid for the Continental Congress Club or for the Liberty Bell Foundation.
  3. Mr. Mason's highest bid was for $50,000 more than Thomas' final offer, which topped that on behalf of the Grandsons of the American Revolution by $25,000.
  4. The man bidding for the Liberty Bell Foundation wasn't Mr. Chase.
  5. The highest offer by the bidder for the Continental Congress Club was for $50,000 more than the last bid made by Wlliam, who wasn't representing the Patriots House of Wax at the auction.
  6. Mr. Whipple's top offer was $25,000 more than Charles' last bid.
  7. The winning bid for the Button Gwinnett autograph was $250,000.
