Tech Glitch in Bidder Window

We’ve noticed a technical glitch involving HTML in some of our favorite auctions, including Leonard Auction, which uses code to format descriptions of choice lots. The code works fine during pre-bidding; but during the live auction, the bidder window does not translate the code into design, causing bidders to toggle back and forth from the company’s online catalog to the bidder window.

Some posts are best shown rather than described. Click to expand pictures below.

Here is the photo of an item in a Leonard Auction catalog:

Here is that lot as seen through the live auction bidding window:

Granted, this is a small problem as far as computing does. But we feel we should point it out so that Proxibid can work a fix.


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.
