It’s more important now than ever with the new Proxibid redesign to showcase your photos, hone your lot descriptions, and showcase your consignments for top bids on the leading portal! In the latest installment, Proxiblog laments and compliments best and bad auctioneer lot descriptions during the past week. We will name the best, but you will have to search Proxibid for the bad. (Click pictures to expand and view lot descriptions below.)
Booyah Silvertowne! for the care that went into this description, noting that the coin was probably dug from the ground but still had positive attributes. Silvertowne continues to grade well and honestly depict consignments.
Booyah! to Silver Trades offering to buyback a coin if it doesn’t grade. That’s a good sign the coin is worth a premium.
Boo! to this auction house that wins a prize for making an uncirculated Morgan dollar look undesirable. Grainy picture. Stickered. Upsidedown. When will auctioneers who sell online learn to take care with their photos?
Viewers can point us to other candidates for our “Boos & Booyahs!” series. Just leave a comment but follow our rules–all in good fun as a way to inspire accurate lot descriptions on Proxibid.
Proxiblog is an independent entity with no connection to the auction portal Proxibid. Our intent is to uphold basic numismatic standards as established by the American Numismatic Association and the National Auctioneer Association and to ensure a pleasurable bidding experience not only on Proxibid but also on similar portals such as iCollector and AuctionZip.
