Engstrom Auction, long a favorite Proxiblog seller, shows four sizes of lot photos so that online buyers can make an education decision on how to bid. Several other of our favorite houses also provide the same courtesies. .
The photo above, originally taken in large pixel size, appears as thumbnail and expansion for the first two sizes. Click on the photo, and it expands again:
Because the photo is large enough as a file, you can use the Proxibid full expansion button on the lower right side of the photo for a final fourth expansion, necessary to identify varieties and flaws.
Add to these features a 13% buyer’s fee, quality shipping and fine service, and you can see why we patronize Engstrom Auction.
Would that other coin auctions on the portal learn from this example to increase sales and gain return customers.
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.
