Go to this web site:

http://www.morphyauctions.com/

I'm assuming you are already registered.  Click on the round blue "Morphy" sign on the top left.  Then at the top, click on "live auctions".  I think the auction is over for today, so you wont' see any items.  Tomorrow around 8:30 the site should come up with the first item that for sale.  I watched for a while today, and threw out a few low ball bids (low to make sure I didn't win) just to make sure everything was ok on my end.  I was surprised at how fast each item was selling.  If you hesitate, you lose - is the best advice I have right now.

"... And, since this is a "special rules" no winner contest, the best guesser will not be included in the Hall of Fame"

Then lets start a Special Auction Hall of Fame.

Thanks to Sargeguy for the "Realized Price" of $30,000.00 for this phone.

Seems I won this Special Contest with the 8th and final guess of the contest.

Check out the Special Auction Contest standing page to see who else has won in the 8 CRPF Special Auction Contests to date.
