And that, ladies and gentlemen, is a perfect example of why it's pure stupidity to place your bid early.

Actually if you place your max bid early, ebay snipes for you. And if you tie with a sniper the sale goes to the first bidder...

Placing a bid early to me is like showing your cards at a poker game. It allows others to seek you out and top your bid which of course are the wishes of eBay and the seller.
I always bid at the last few seconds. Sniping programs from what I can see prevails over eBay's proxy bidding. It seems those that employ such systems win the most auctions.

Only because their max is greater. I'll let them pay more than I think it's worth, no matter if they bid in the 1st day or last second. If someone seeks me out and is willing to pay more..let them.

I am thinking the ones that were on my car for show were n.o.s complete with hardware. Reason they are not on anymore is the New JS. states forged bar introduction of 1930 to April 1930 //// May 1930 to August 1930 stamped steel ///// back to forged bar. So for the second French Lick meet i had made the correction since my car is a late July/Early Aug. car.. You can not use the license plate clips on stamp steel bars.[ i have NO CLUE what was used and no one that i know ,knows . ! i have 3 out of the 4 clips n.o.s. extra of a incomplete set and a super used set .Like Gary Karr said maybe time to hide under my bedroom pillows...L.O.L.

You should look at the other items that seller has. Lots of goodies.
