Anything goes with exonumia...
In most thinly traded markets, at auction...anything goes. Exonumia is no exception. All it takes sometimes is for two bidders with money to find something they've been waiting for, and that item can take off. Sometimes you get only once chance. Sometimes you're simply tired of waiting. And other times, you just gotta make it yours.
Here's an example of a pretty cool piece that took off at Stacks a few days back. A corps badge from the American Civil War. I felt like it could bring $2,000, and when live bidding started it was only a thousand dollars. But rare and unusual things are hard to price:
When the smoke cleared, it ended just shy of $10,000! I did not participate..
