Fairly sure he should have had to clear my top bid at that level by the full increment of $2.50 at that stage... there are scenarios where you get weird bid differences between winner and underbidder but I think in this case he just barely won... I'd have bid $20 more had I know it would have keep this nice note in good shape.

You know, I try and bid within a budget and always try to make sure there is a little clearance in what I buy, so I am not buying top of market or getting upside down on a value easily, but I shouldn't have to bid on notes to save them from the butchery of eBay note flippers. Few things sour me on this hobby more than this destructive greed...

But the action you lost by $2 ..... at what price he bought it? Because he has just sold the cleaned note for $178.

He paid about $130 for it... so his destruction of the note netted him maybe $30.

It's a real shame when pen signatures are lost.

Painful example...
