Sometimes on Proxibid a picture is worth a thousand words … or dollars, plus or minus, depending on the lot description. That’s why you always have to expand photos before bidding. In this post we show how important that little click is in deciding whether to bid on what looks like a grade-worthy coin.
If you went by the consignor’s description and the auctioneer’s value, you’d be sorry you ever bid. Click the photo below to expand and see a long scratch on the obverse from above Lady Liberty’s ear cascading down under her cap’s knot behind her head.
Auction houses that take time to describe condition are ones that earn repeat business .. and our respect.
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.
