    I’ve always found it odd when multiple sales are reported with whole rounded numbers (E.g. x5 sales at $50k exactly). I’m not really surprised that most of the sales in the list are Chinese buyers. Personally, I think the buyer(s) paid to much for them. That’s just my opinion though. 😉

    Hey Eric, I agree the rounded numbers seem funky, but Ron Jackson has a good track record for scrubbing sales before they make his list.

    Re: overpaying, it will be interesting to look back in a few years to gauge if they overpaid. I personally believe those LLL.com prices will be higher in the mid-long term, but that’s just an opinion as well.
