When bidding online before the actual LIVE auction begins, you will receive an email from Regency-Superior that you are "WINNING", this does NOT mean that you have won the item. It means that your bid is the highest going into the actual live sale.

If you bid during the live portion of the sale higher than the opening bid, you would be bidding against yourself. The email you receive before the live auction opens are only your current status, they are NOT invoices.

If you have any questions on this please call or email and we will try to make things clear. We are definitely sorry if there was some confusion in this area.

The very nice people at Regency spent a good deal of time talking with me this morning. They researched the item in question and found out that I was not bidding against myself, or if I had, that it didn't end up mattering. There were two competing sets of bids from the floor. The second and highest one was in fact my advance bid. So all is good.

My compliments to the staff for their very friendly and helpful customer service!

I was interested in #295, and at Spacefest I asked a fellow cS-er who's a long-time, high-end collector what he thought it would go for. He said around $2000, so the hammer price seems if not a deal, then at least not crazy.

It didn't take long for items to start showing up on eBay. I saw this listing for Debus's Apollo 11 launch badge #05. Buy-it-now price is $1950. That's only a 655% markup over the hammer price + BP ($297.50). I guess that one has to fund one's purchases somehow...
