Here's an interesting one:

Bids

* $496,125 bid by Central Bank (Mr. Chairman) on 2:27 AM EST
* $485,875 bid by House (Wish I had a Real Job) on February 1 2007 10:57 PM EST
* $450,000 bid by PurpleCobra (MI6) on February 1 2007 7:22 PM EST
* $350,000 bid by Trashcan (Chrysogon) on February 1 2007 5:03 PM EST

The interesting thing is that I did a check through auction history and I can only see one time (14 Dec) that a base Adam sold for more than the price House had bid.

Perhaps Mr Chairman of Central Bank has too much money to burn ;)

adams have just been traditionally going for more than nw...?

well, lets see, if it DOES sell for lower, will it really be rare anymore? Adam is the one armor that walls wear, any other just wouldnt cut it for AC, so yes, lets see adams go away cuz of central bank bidding high, and then see who makes walls after that...

I've seen quite a lot of interest in adams at the moment; perhaps the obvious effectiveness of the walls in the top ranks has renewed interest. Besides which, TSAs and the new EH are too difficult to get hold of for less than a million.

There are also quite a lot of people building tanks without ToAs lately.


Maybe Mr Chairman is simply anticipating the price rise that will surely follow....

I can't remember though, is the Central Bank bid based on average price they have sold for recently? That seven million or so that the big Adam Jon auctioned went for would have raised the average worth some wouldn't it?

My comment was with regards to base adams. Here is the auction history (excluding non base adams) for the last 3 months. Formatted a little for easier reading.

Central bank did bid on two of those, but only at much lower price levels.

In any case it was just an observation... Based on the previous history I'd already thought the price was on the high side for an Adam when it reached over the $420K mark. It surprised me when Central Bank decided that $485K was less than market value.

Adminedyit February 2 2007 5:23 AM EST

cb bid low in those because it only bids the next highest bid. it doesn't bid what it deams to be fair NW just the next highest bid.

Shelingar February 2 2007 5:33 AM EST

Yes I understand that... sorry I was a bit unclear it seems. There are 11 base or close to base Adams. Only 3 of those had CB bids. Two of those bids were when the previous price was 252K or below. In fact one of the Adams sold for $266K without a CB bid.

The sale that just finished CB bid when the price was $485K ...nearly twice what its previous highest bid was.

In any case it really doesn't matter to me that much as I wasn't going to buy it, and have no need for one currently. It was an observation and people seem to be missing the point, so I'll stop now.

It was probably due to this auction: (+1) $64,435 $349,082

this would have pushed the trendline much higher, which would cause the extrapolated target for a +5 Adam to increase usbstantially.

Mr Chairman does not anticipate. It just uses historical data.

QBOddBird February 2 2007 10:18 AM EST

Just face it guys, Central Bank is smarter than you!

Hahahahaha!
