Silly auction bids that won....

Ok here's a good one for you guys. Your flipping through lots of different auctions and you see a coin that catches your interest with very low or no bids but not what your hunting for... If your like me, I often drop a 10 or 20 dollar bid rather then watch listing (i lazy and don't want to have to flip between pages lol) Well sometimes those stupid curiosity bids win... I won one today... never expected to get it for $20 but here you have it a 1722 Rosa Americana for only $20... a nifty hole filler for me :smiley: What "unintentional" wins have you made?

You may soar with the eagles, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines!.

    I have never had that happen... well, not with coins. Had it happen at a live gun auction once. Really surprised me. Cheers, RickO

    I got a proof 1992 Columbus coin/medal that had 1/2 oz. each of Gold and Platinum for $600.
    Seller didn’t list the weight but messaged me 20 minutes before the end of the auction. Got it for less than half of melt.
