Is noticed the high bid dropped from $610 back to $495.

Seems that ATCA $2,500 number matches the bid retracted late yesterday afternoon.

Seems to be an interesting way to expose the high bid, bid a lot higher and then retract. How many retractions does eBay grant a buyer before imposing sanctions, if any?

Just noticed that the high bid was placed 2 days into the auction by a buyer with "0" feedback, so, a shill bidder to drive up the price? Or what? I had commented that a 0 feedback seller had a 0 feedback buyer, an interesting thing at that point.
