Wording on bottom of bond
On November 24, 2009 dealer Mario Boone sold on eBay for $60,100 a Mexican Government bond described as “Republica Mexicana, bono del tesoro del gobierno federal de los Estados Unidos Mexicanos, 6% oro 1913, gold bond of £100 = 2045 RM = $mex 975” (listing no. 130345442061).
According to Boone, “The Mexican bond I sold [November 24 2009] on eBay.com for a good $60,000 was a true sale – the buyer already paid.
16 bids were placed by five individual bidders in the final eight seconds of the listing, driving the price up by $55,000 to the final winning bid of $60,100. How much of these increments were effected by someone actually pushing a button is unclear. The bid sniping programs are completely automated, especially if multiple snipes are entered by the same person. The danger for an over-enthusiastic sniper is that his “crazy” bid might be slightly underbid by one from another sniper, and he won’t know until he’s already bought the piece.
