All the serious collectors snipe bid in the last hour or less of the
auction for various reasons although they may put in an early low bid to
keep you from easily pulling or changing the auction.

Gotta have faith in the near-perfect market ebay provides ;-)  You'll
get what the market thinks a coco 1 16k is worth. The only important
question is whether that market price is the same value you place on it,
but you would have made that decision before you put it out there (you
can search completed auctions for this info).
