You can see that gimeurbeer had a bid of 11,900 that was placed about an hour and a half before that. Statewide was probably just increasing his bid a little bit at a time until he outbid gimeurbeer. Either way, I think the seller did well but at the same time I also think it was a decent deal for the buyer too.




Im referring to where statewide increased his bid from 10,700 at 18:48 then placed 4 other consecutive bids within 2 minutes outbidding himself each time which reached 11,800 at 18:50....that to me looks like the owner running up the price.

Either way, it would be great to have. I was considering bidding but not at that price.

I understand what you're trying to say but gimeurbeer allready had a higher bid and that's why statewide had to keep bidding higher. At least that's what it looks like.

Let's look at the tape before someone shouts conspiracy:

statewide01 US $12,400.00 Sep-03-06 18:59:24
elitevw US $12,300.00 Sep-03-06 18:52:38
statewide01 US $12,200.00 Sep-03-06 18:51:54
elitevw US $12,100.00 Sep-03-06 18:51:55
statewide01 US $12,000.00 Sep-03-06 18:51:20
gimeurbeer US $11,900.00 Sep-03-06 17:14:24
statewide01 US $11,800.00 Sep-03-06 18:50:54
statewide01 US $11,600.00 Sep-03-06 18:50:33
statewide01 US $11,300.00 Sep-03-06 18:50:14
statewide01 US $10,900.00 Sep-03-06 18:49:36
statewide01 US $10,700.00 Sep-03-06 18:48:26
blakewolfanf US $10,500.00 Sep-03-06 10:15:37

Edited for clarity, I took out ratings and the timezone.

One thing to note, is that this is NOT in chronological order.

So, at 18:48:26, statewide01 was bidding to beat the bid of $11,900 made by gimeurbeer at 17:14:24. It looks like he/she was looking for the price, and found it at 18:51:20.

Thirty five seconds later, elitevw outbid statewide01's $12K bid, with a $12,100 bid.

Doesn't look that suspicious to me. Just looks like someone wanted to go up in price slowly in $200-$400 increments.

Didn't need to type, cut and paste! I did cut out the fields that were not needed.

Took about 30 seconds.

I'm old and have much patience compared to many here.

I'm certainly pleased with the result of the auction . I feel they should all sell that high (well maybe not ALL , but well-kept examples) .
