Seems no one has mentioned ebays proxy bidding system. The high bidder may have bid 1500, we will never know. If you don't set a proper reserve- there is always the chance you will not find 2 bidders to fight it out. However, if you set a proper reserve, and there are no takers on that given day, you "live to fight again." Many times I have seen an item sell for less than I would pay but cash flow did not allow me to bid at
that very time...
