The sale is a combination of various formats, to suit different tastes. The
sale itself is divided into 2 parts, one covering lots that are in various
non-philatelic fields (lots 1 - 579), and one covering
just stamps, postal history and other areas of philately
(lots 580 - 1313). The period between now and the published 'end times' of
the two parts of sale functions as a 'pre-sale' period:
during this time lots may be bid on in a standard mail auction manner (bids
submitted in writing) or through the online auction program, or be
purchased outright (the initial buyout prices appear just below the
descriptions of each lot). The published opening bid prices are the
minimum bid prices, and the buyout prices are mostly set 50% above
the opening bid levels (traditionally "best" bids, which win a lot
even before an auction's end are set to 3x the opening bid
price). These "buy it now" prices are dynamic: they will
rise by 5-10% for every bid received on a lot once the current bid level
passes the midway point between the starting bid price and the original
buyout price. This is not intended to take advantage of interest in a lot
but rather to avoid discouraging bidders from continuing to bid on an item
of interest. As of now, at the end of the pre-sale period for Part 1 of the
sale (non-philatelic items), available lots will be offered for sale in a
timed live sale on our page at Bidspirit.com; Part 2
(philately) will run as a mail auction until the published
end date and time, with 5 minute time-extensions if bids are received in
the last minute of the sale (or time extension).
