Looks like the current high bidder at $1,000 is our very own Matt Gorski. Sorry, Matt, but the normal CR etiquette of not bidding against a list member doesn't apply, as the item is very rare and highly desired by multiple members. We can't just wait for the next one, so if I can get it for $1100 I will. However, I doubt $1100 will even meet reserve, plus I imagine once Kauzo and the other lads from Nippon get into the hunt, this baby will go MUCH higher than I will want to pay. This will be a very interesting auction, as we may discover just exactly what today's market is for a highly desirable Herse model. Perhaps we should start a list pool to guess the final winning bid. I'm betting this one winds up in Japan, and that is not a bad thing as wonderful objects should belong to those who will treasure them.
