Sounds like a lot for a dealer.  I can't imagine why a collector would need
31 VDB cents, unless he had a lot of grandkids.

oh oh, is *ed getting a new coin to chase? I was going to bid on those just
because they would be nice to put into my big type lots... People love Lincolns
and being able to get a 1909 VDB in a lot would be most welcome by any
collector. I could sell all 31 of them, and enjoy doing it. :)

I do wish you well! :-)

Well well welly well... If it isn't Anacondan and Xhanadu dominating the
bidding history on this one... Boy, and I have the money in my Paypal acct...
and the seller only takes Paypal... Youse guys sure make it hard to do the
right thing. Bid! I wanna bid, dagnabit! Wait! I see the seller's other action
and, lo and behold, the same two biding away like it was an auction or
something instead of a place where I can get some stock for cheap... I think I
am outta this one. Good luck to you both! :-)

I do wish you well! :-)

I mightabid myself, but since I have one (undeserved)
negative along with my 2,422 positive ones, the seller
requires that I email him first for permission to bid.

In a word, NOT!

Hi Ken,
You should have gone ahead and bid anyway :)  That's another "condition"
that I'll be removing from my future auctions(along with the "paypal" only
condition).  I've taken into consideration lately that my conditions have
taken a turn for the worse.  I wrote and revised those rules after a couple
of bad dealings with non-paying bidders; and afer a couple bidders took a
few matters into their own hands (such as adjusting shipping themselves when
a -fixed- rate was clearly stated).

I honestly think that my rules more or less just made -me- "feel" better.
Besides, when people "snipe" auctions they usually don't meet half of the
"conditions" anyway.  And sniping is something that really can't be avoided
on ebay unfortunately.

You know, only about 3 people have ever sent me that info anyway(-before-
they bid), and I've -NEVER- cancelled a bid in an auction yet.  I always
give people the benefit of the doubt.  In fact, the person that won the vdb
penny lot had 2 negatives, didn't mail me first, but has already paid
through paypal so it just goes to show: I need to lighten up a little bit.

So bottom line: my future auctions will be much more relaxed.

Just an FYI if anyone's interested: The next lot that I'll probably be
putting up will be Franklin halves.

Talk to you guys later, Thanks for all of the response and feedback.

-Paul

Why would you want to avoid sniping?  You received 6 bids in the last two
minutes or so of your auction.  It more than doubled the price you received
for your lot!

Well, because I'd rather someone bid 5 dollars and -pay- rather than snipe
it at 10 dollars and -not- pay.
I've had this happen in 2 auctions I've held so far(2 isn't a big number but
considering I've only held ~18 auctions so far, I think it's significant) .
I'm not out to make a ton of money on my auctions,
I'd just like fair market price, and a smooth transaction.
