Attention Bidders: A word about our auctions………………we do not disclose our Reserve on a “RESERVE AUCTION.” The reason is simple. Disclosing the Reserve defeats the purpose of the Reserve auction. Disclosing makes it a “Sale,” for the bidder not an auction, much like a Basic Auction on Auction Arms where the minimum selling price is listed for all bidders to see. We prefer the Reserve Auction and the “HAGGLE” feature offered by Auction Arms. About 40% of our sales are completed via the Haggle. In the Reserve auction you are not necessarily bidding to hit the reserve but to be the high bidder. That is when the Haggle begins. If you are not familiar with the Haggle process click on: Help & Info Often the Reserve is the price the Seller would like to get but is not necessarily the minimum price the Seller may be willing to accept. We hope this explains why we don’t disclose.
