    Is there a way to know the leading bid is mine or not mine?

    • David Zemon says:

      Afraid not. The sale was intentionally designed as a blind auction, with no knowledge of the current highest bidder or highest bid value until the auction is over.
      Good luck!

      • Leo Weisman says:

        It says only one bid per person which I presumed per item. I sent additional emails increasing my bid amount for specific items. Are those higher bids going to be honored?

        • Wayne Humphrey says:

          Yes, the highest bid placed by an individual will be honored.

            And the winners are? Are you sending out an email?

          • David Zemon says:

            Hi Dan,

            Only the winners will be notified by email, and I don’t think James made any explicit promises as to when he would send out said notification. But, in any case, if you don’t receive notification by the following month’s meeting (in this case, I’m referring to March’s meeting), it would seem a reasonable assumption that you were outbid.
