Re: EH / Collector Connector sales

It seems participating in an auction these days is ...
* Expensive so far as fees are concerned
* Bidding blind
* Requires the sleuthing skills of Sherlock to find out when, where, how or just about any other adverb you can think of.

Re: EH / Collector Connector sales

Fair does Bob.
It sounds like they took the time spent at the end for paying in (and out?) and just divided it up to spread it across the active part of the auction.

Re: What kind of slot machine is this?

As it's on Americaland coinage, is that where you are?
