Bids of nearly $10k on 4 coins @ HA. :wink:

They're all at the high end of the given estimate :shock:

I had pretty good luck changing my style of bidding to this: Nuclear.

If you're willing to pay the high end of the estimate, then bid that immediately. Anyone else bidding will have to go above the high bid, especially with the juice, to even be in the running.

And the more people who jump on the auction, the better your position.

You see a $1000 coin bid to $100, you might throw a bid in. You see a $1000 coin bid to $1000, you'll need to go above the high range, then throw in $200 more for the juice, just to see my cards.

Ante up, bitches :D

I spoke the house might not mind bidding up to their estimate. Funny how it gets there so quick. I say the heck with all the self serving estimates out there these days.

You see an aspect of this on eBay, where a coin that has been offered as a buy it now for $1000 and no one purchases. Same coin is put up at a starting bid of 99 cents and sells for $1250.00. No wanted it bad enough at $1k but once they start bidding there is that mentality of having to win it.

That's the other side of the coin. :D

If we already know the coin is worth X, there is no reason for me to bid less than X, because smoeone else is likely going to bid at least that amount.

If I bid X at the very start, then I've got the coin at X. Problem solved. Anyone else will have to bid X+ to win the coin. They're already in painful territory, arguably paying too much for the coin, and that's a deterrent.

If others don't feel the coin is worth X, then my secret maximum will not be engaged anyway and I'll get the coin I was willing to pay X for at X-.

Just seems more logical and straightforward.

This has been my method at HA for coins I really need. "Bid early, bid once".

Upped bids on a couple and then bid on another piece I'd forgotten I'd "watched" a month ago. It's PCGS :D
