Thus, if you are the only bidder on a lot at 9:00 PM, EST on the auction closing date you will be declared the winner. We will use the 30 Minute Rule to close the auction. No retractions of bids are permitted. Once a bid has been placed, it may not be retracted.

All bids are in whole dollars. Offers to "top all other bids" are not accepted, but you may place a "Max" bid (also known as "Up To," "Ceiling," or "Limit" bid) and the system will automatically bid on your behalf up to that amount only if and when necessary. In the event of a tie bid, the earlier received bid will be recognized as the successful bid.

The 30 Minute Rule - How The Auction Ends - You must place an initial bid on an item, prior to the scheduled close of the Auction at 9:00 PM EST on the auction closing day, to be eligible to bid on that item during the extended bidding period. The Extended bidding period will begin at 9:00 PM EST and will end lot by lot. When no bids have been placed for 30 minutes on a particular lot, that lot will be closed. No bidders will be allowed to place bids on items they had not previously bid on prior to 9:00 PM EST.
