We sent out over 500 referrals in 2014.
We now have data on over 10,000 auctions in our database!!!!!
We now show a scatter plot of sales for your search. This will help you see in an instant the trend for the machine you are searching and give you an idea of what machines are selling for. In addition, we provide information on how many times the machine model was listed but never hit got a single bid!
Here is an example for a Mills Bursting Cherry
49 machines were not included in the plot because the reserve was not met at the auction AND there were no bids on the machine. In general, a high (> 10) number usually indicates machines which have unreasonable values by their owners.
The above graph shows results for auctions where the machine either sold or had at least 1 bid. It should give you a good idea of the trend. The price does not include things like insurance and shipping. The date of the first recorded sale in the graph is 2004-01-01 and the date of the last point in the graph is 2011-10-15.
