Missing at yesterday's auction conducted by BNSP is the friendly Jun Cuartero and somebody else did the calling for the bids. As usual there were a lot of new faces that bid for the coins that were also my targets. Of the twenty coins I had hoped for, only seven were won by me and those were won because nobody else bid for them. Other coins were just snatched by eager beavers (mga gigil) who were really determined to win the coins even if the "tipo" price went up two times, three times or more. Anyway, it seems that a lot of people were very happy. And some foreigners again won several items and it seems that those items are lost forever if they take them home to their country.
