A Beginning And a Finishing Up

Welcome to E-Auction 18!

The photos on the back cover of the print version of the catalog introduce a major collection of English copper, tin and bronze coins formed by someone I have known since the 1970s, Frank Robinson. I knew he was an attorney and administrative law judge who also ran coin auctions. I had noticed that he was an active numismatist traveling to follow his interests to such places as Moscow. I did not know how serious he had been as a collector until I began going through his English collection. In addition to many of the earlier milled issues, he has put together a nearly complete run of later (Victoria and on) base metal coins in generally outstanding condition (‘sorry, no 1933 penny). I have been keeping records on milled issues from Victoria on for several years in order to represent values fairly for Coin World and I am keenly aware of how infrequently mint state examples of relatively common issues are found. The 43 lots offered here are just a sample of what will be a large bloc in our major February 2017 sale, Auction 36.

How Bidding Works

Davissons Ltd uses a soft close for its auctions, which means no lot closes until everyone is done bidding. Every time a bid is placed within the final 40 seconds of a lot closing, the timer is reset to 40 seconds. This continues until no bids are placed for 40 seconds, at which point the lot closes. There will never be more than one lot closing at once, as the next lot is not allowed to begin closing until the current lot closes.

To bid: enter your maximum bid into the text box, and click submit. Only round dollar amounts are accepted. You are then required to confirm your bid. Once confirmed, all bids are final. If you have placed a bid in error you must call during office hours and speak to one of us. If you are the current high bidder then it will display “Current High Bidder: YOU” If you are not the high bidder, or if you are not logged in, then the current high bidder will be identified by their 5 digit client ID. You may find your client ID under the Account tab.

Bids are reduced automatically, so feel free to bid your maximum and it will be reduced to one increment over the current high bid. If a user places a bid that is higher than necessary to be the current high bidder on the lot, the displayed bid will reflect one advance over the next lower bid. For example, if a user "A" places a bid of $120 on a lot which opens at $100, "A" will be winning that lot at $100. If another user "B" bids $110, the winning bidder will be "A" at $120, one advance over the supporting bid of $110. If user "B" in this example instead placed a bid at $120, then user "A" will still be winning at $120 because they placed that maximum bid value first.

Increments can be viewed here. The next bid will always be on the next increment, so if a user is winning a lot at $100, or $105, or $109, the next bid will still always be $110.
