How big of a role do auction results play in your collecting approach?
Here are some answers sent in from our E-Newsletter readers.
Auction results play some part in my collecting decisions; if I had to place this on a percentage basis, I’d say that auctions represent at least 20 percent, taking into consideration other factors that may/may not impact collecting decisions.
None at all.
As a rule, you can count my auction purchases over the past 10 years on your fingers and still have thumbs left over.

Auction results are another tool that I use to evaluate current markets. It is a small bit of information, along with how bad I want/needs that specific coin for my collection.
