That's a nice one, better centered than mine. Lot 586, CV $1500 CAD, hinged. I'll be in that auction (not bidding on that lot), will be interesting to see what it goes for.

I will buy it and offer it if the Siegel buyer is in the market for another one.

Or perhaps contact the under bidder. But by now he may have realised that he had a very lucky escape by being out bid.

I wonder if the winner has told their wife / husband yet ??

Here's mine, from a Sparks purchase earlier this year. Came as part of the King Eddy full set (x2, plus a couple pairs and a block). Paid about 8% of CV for the lot. Admittedly, hinged and not as nice as the Siegel one, but still...

People who spend 32K on a stamp don't worry about a spouse.
I tend to be with you Greg, so I watch these auctions go and scratch my head and never try to figure what moves other people.

The nice examples SCF members have shown make the point that unless you are in Steve Balmer territory, competitive auction bidding is not the way to build your collection.
