Yes indeed I agree. I have had some things sell for waaaay cheaper than I saw them go for a week or month prior to me selling the same things. Very upsetting and disappointment all around.
How much you "could get" from something is different than how much something is "worth" is why I usually say to let an auction determine value.
People should ask how much they could get from something or how it has been selling lately instead of asking how much something is worth.
It would also eliminate the talk of "well, it's really worth this or that, or worth is only what you think, blah blah" talk that we see on lots of inquiries as to how much something is worth.
Some people think things are worth "X" amount and others think "Y" amount- so to just determine a definite value on it, an auctions ends would be best. In my thinking anyway....
Example of something that is up and down in "worth" is muscle's Satan Cross figure. There is no worth on it. The damned thing sells for $10 sometimes and $80 sometimes- so there's no worth on it except what it sells for each time. The value is determined by the sale. Unless it is a current running line being sold.
Just my thinking and views on that!
