In the six months of our existence, Proxiblog has posted more than 85 articles and news items, attracted 5,000 viewers and increased our Honor Roll auctions from 11 to 60!
Auctioneers, bidders and coin collectors have been viewing Proxiblog for the latest news on the portal Proxibid whose redesign and emphasis on coins is leading the pack, even to the point of offering “Gold Bars” in random drawings–always a surefire way to spark numismatistic interest.
In our new rankings, Weaver Coin and Currency Auction retakes our top spot, sporting some of the best coin photography, email advertisements and buyer’s fees on the portal. Dave and Cheryl Weaver always strive for courteous, professional customer service, as their recent “On the Block” documents.
Krueger and Krueger’s fabulous showing in its auction earlier this month, in which more than a third of coins sold for retail–as well as its careful lot descriptions, keep the numismatic house in second, followed by Silvertowne featuring expert coin grading and Western featuring fine consignments and low buyer’s fees.
We see more competition, sharper photographs, more accurate lot descriptions and better consignments on most of our Honor Roll houses, indicating keener competition in the auctioneer tradition.
Thanks to all our auctioneers who communicate with us, to our subscribers and followers!
End note:Proxiblog tries to post at least three times a week. We have no official sponsor and do this in the name of auctioneering and numismatics. Please be patient if a new post doesn’t appear in 48 hours or so. We’re working on it!
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.
