Roma Numismatics - strange estimates and opening bids?


Recommended Posts

I think it's a marketing tactic. Some other auctions have long set opening bids at $5. They still sell for plenty.

Most auction software automatically sets the estimates at something like 150% of the reserve, which is often the opening bid, so they all get an estimate of £5 on a £3 reserve.
