Yep - similar here. My main targets ended up going very high so I bailed.
Did grab a coin from the Pick Bin and a small Byzantine lot.
Was interesting watching some heated bidding at times..
I'm glad to hear you won some backups, @ValiantKnight and @Clavdivs, but I hope some others managed to snag their main targets!
Y'all might be interested in a behind-the-scenes look at the auction stats:
With the strong pre-bidding I figured the live auction would be a bit less lively than last time, but not at all! If anything it was more lively.
@Severus Alexander for a great auction today…he did such an amazing job of putting everything together!
I had a lot of fun watching this one today…I had 28 coins consigned to the auction, and 27 of them sold, some great hammer prices. I really hope some of my coins stayed in the CT family! I’m excited to see how everyone did today.
There was some strong bidding on my targets which is a good thing for both @Severus Alexander as well as his consignors. Congratulations SA! It was a fun event and I will miss it.
@Severus Alexander for taking the trouble and runni9ng this auction.
@Severus Alexander for running it again, seems to get better each time around! Great selection of pieces, there were many on my want list and ended up getting a couple plus 2 impulse buys. Did end up getting the one I really wanted, apologies to the second place bidder as I paid way over my budget…
@Severus Alexander for the wonderful and exciting auction!
I consigned nine coins, all of which sold. I‘m very happy with the results. Lots 9, 90, 285, 408, 427, 495, 512, 657, and 662 were from my collection, and I would love to know if some of them went to fellow CTers.
On the other hand, I bought eight coins, which I will post once they have arrived. Many of them were previously owned by other CT members. The bovine stater consigned by @ChrisB, a Carisius denarius and a Volusian ant from @Shea19 and a Valerian II ant from @Severus Alexander ’s personal collection went to me.
I can’t wait to have these coins in hand and hope everyone else did well, too!
@Severus Alexander ... very nice job, and great auction.
My Target was spirited, but won. I would love to know who I was bidding against.
@Severus Alexander. I won 2 out of my 5 targets: Lot 172 and lot 286 (from the Severus Alexander collection ).
Also all my consigned coins were sold, and some with some surprising hammer prices. It seems like it was very successful. I did have my eye on lot 375 but was outbid.
@Severus Alexander! Thank you very much.
Unfortunately I lost 2 of my targets, but I won 3 coins on the end! A coin from @TheRed, a coin from @Chris B and a coin from the man himself @Severus Alexander. Glad I can now continue to take care of the coins that were once in possesion of these CT fellows.
@Severus Alexander. I really enjoyed watching the auction as much as I could (during dinner time, with the kids, which is sort of impossible ). I also enjoyed seeing all my consignments get sold, and I'm very pleased with the results. I cant wait for members to show their winst, I'm really curious if a CT-member won one of my coins!
Great looking follis!
Good to know it was a fellow CT'er! Congratulations, dude!
Thanks! Been looking a while for one of these large Constantinople mint Justinian folles that still has good facial details and wasn’t going to break the bank.
I actually have a couple, but did want one from the year of the start of the pandemic; their '2020' per se. Needless to say, you did well with that win!
