Final Day of Bidding

The final day of the auction is Thursday, April 4th. If you are the only bidder on a lot, or if a lot has received no bids, that lot will close at 11:00pm EST. Please note that placing a max bid after your initial bid has been placed will count as two bidders on that lot. For all other lots, the auction will close lot by lot on a 30 minute closing timer. This means that starting at 11:30 pm EST, any lot that has had no bidding activity during the prior 30 minutes will be closed. After 11:00 pm EST, each additional bid on a lot will reset and extend bidding for 30 minutes on that lot only. All lots will be open for bidding to any registered bidder until the lot is closed. There is no initial bid requirement in order to bid after 11:00pm EST.
