Following an in-person negotiation with the winning bidder we agreed on a reduced price of 7.4BTC after the discovery of some minor discoloration on the right side of the front page which was not evident from the photos. The winning bidder is having the paper professionally preserved so that it can be enjoyed for generations to come.

As promised I have forwarded 10% as a donation to FreeRoss.org  Grin

I believe that this is a correct countdown timer for the Auction Close: Sunday, May 5 @ 2300 EDT Monday, May 20 @ 2300 EDT, but no guarantees, it's unofficial so do you own DD, though I shall be following it unless someone spots a flaw in it.

https://www.timeanddate.com/countdown/generic?iso=20190520T23&p0=179&msg=Satoshi+Times+auction&font=cursive

I can confirm that this is indeed the correct Auction Close time.

I have also edited the first post clarifying the no sniping rule as follows:
Quote
No Sniping: Each bid in the final 60 minutes adds 60 minutes to the Auction Close time until no bid has been made for 60 minutes.

Thanks to all who placed bids and PM'd with questions/concerns this week. If you have suggestions on how to enhance auction integrity in the collectibles subforum I recommend checking out the thread started by micgoossens: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5140603.0

Also remember to hash your final sale price predictions by May 15 @ 20:00 PST on Sat0shisGhost's thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5140169.0

The auction runs for another eight days, get your bids in early and good luck!  Cheesy

I thought long and hard about the results of this auction.

My initial minimum bid requirements of 40 and then 20 BTC were too much to ask of this forum, but I would hate for this auction to end on such an unsatisfactory note.

For that reason I am extending the auction for another two weeks with a MINIMUM BID of 0.00 BTC. No valid bids have been entered as of this post and the auction will restart a few hours from now, the bid increment remains the same at 0.25 BTC. All other terms remain unchanged.

I will be doing more promotion this time around to hopefully get some more eyeballs on this item over the next two weeks.

If you don't plan on bidding, but know someone who might be interested in this item please share:

So the 1/3/2019 paper was worth 20BTC as well??  I have a copy I’ll sell you for a mere 10BTC.  Half of what you believe it to be worth.  I’ll even cover the escrow fee.  Wink

Please don't misrepresent what I believe the value of these items to be. If you read my first post I clearly state that the bonus item would not materially add to the value of the 03 Jan 2009 paper which is up for auction. Thanks for your offer though.  Wink
13  Economy / Collectibles / Re: [Auction | 48hrs | LOWER MIN BID] The Times 03 Jan 2009 | 10% to FreeRoss.org on: May 04, 2019, 01:26:23 AM
Gentlemen -

Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond my control I will be unable to include the bonus item w/ this auction. I had wanted to include a copy of The Times from 03 Jan 2019 featuring the Bitmex advert. I'm sure collectors more savvy than myself can make this pairing happen, but it won't be this auction.

I want this auction to end on a successful note and as of now there are approximately 48 hours remaining until the close of bidding. I am a motivated seller and I am willing to engage in some price discovery to make a deal on this piece. I would prefer to avoid fleabay, and I would love for this item to end up in the hands of a forum user.

Because BTC is up and because I failed to deliver on the bonus item I am lowering the minimum bid to 20 BTC. All other terms of the auction remain in place. I have updated the main post to reflect this. I do not anticipate lowering the price further and I hope this change encourages bidders in the final days & hours of the auction.

I have moved the FAQ to the 2nd post and will continue to update there with questions as they arise.

I cannot tell you how many libraries I have searched in an attempt to find this issue. 

There's still time to add this to your personal library  Wink

I am still working to get the bonus item sorted, hoping to have photos to update this auction with soon; you guys will not be disappointed!

Auction has been live for almost one week and will run for another week. Thanks to all who commented, shared thoughts, and stopped by to read and take a look at this item.

FAQ

Q: Price is very high, how can you justify the high minimum bid?

A: These are obviously rare papers and very few sales have taken place. https://www.thetimes03jan2009.com/ notes 8 "verified copies" of the paper ranging in asking price from $250k-$1.3M. BTC has been somewhat volatile since the auction began but at a ~$5200/BTC the minimum bid for this auction is priced 15-20% below the lowest priced paper on https://www.thetimes03jan2009.com/ and I am a highly accessible and public owner happy to answer questions to facilitate this deal; and I am donating 10% of the final sale price to a deserving charity.

If you are commenting to complain about the price please take precautions to avoid having your post look like a bid.

Q: Is this your only copy?

A: Yes.

Q: Are you willing to meet the buyer in person to consummate this deal?

A: Yes, I am willing to travel (reasonable distance w/in the ConUS) to meet the buyer at an agreed upon location to complete this deal via in-person delivery if the winning bidder so chooses.

Q: Will you entertain a trade that is not the minimum bid or higher?

A: No.

BTC The Times 03 Jan 2009 BTC

Greetings Bitcointalkers and collectibles aficionados,

Today, I have the bitter sweet honor of offering you the highly sought after Genesis Block Newspaper, one (1) complete, authentic, original copy of The London Times from 03 Jan 2009 emblazoned w/ the infamous headline "Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks".

Full paper w/ inserts is stored in archival grade polyester protective covering and comes with archival grade box for truly cold storage (but keep it @ room temp.) of this prized relic. Proof of purchase from UK Historic-Newspapers is provided and pictured below, I believe I obtained one of their last copies in mid-2013.

Content courtesy of Bittburger from https://www.thetimes03jan2009.com/:

Quote from: Bittburger
On January 3, 2009 the first event on the Bitcoin block chain occurred.  Its founder placed an important notation indicating the intent behind what he had just created.  The London Times ran a cover story entitled “Chancellor on Brink of Second Bailout for Banks”. This title was quoted and embedded into the very first transaction ever to be included in the new Bitcoin block chain, by Satoshi Nakamoto.  The block containing this transaction was called The Genesis Block.

View the Genesis Block Coinbase tx https://blockchain.info/tx/4a5e1e4baab89f3a32518a88c31bc87f618f76673e2cc77ab2127b7afdeda33b?show_adv=true

When Satoshi wrote his comment on the Genesis Block, he picked the title for a reason.  It implies the disruptive and revolutionary freedoms associated with financial block chain technologies.

See Wiki on Genesis Block with Newspaper Referenced https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Genesis_block

Never forget the true meaning of Bitcoin:
Ending the control of Banks and Governments over your Money

CONDITION & PHOTOS:

Two further remarks on the condition of the paper. There is a small diagonal tear less than 1/4 in. in length on the top of the right side of the back page, this is the back of the paper if the front page is folded. There are approximately ten (10) small pin-sized holes down the leftmost side of the back page, I believe these are a result of the way the papers are printed/distributed, see photos. Photos taken earlier today, see last 10 characters of the block hash for block #572620.











Small tear closeup




BONUS:

Sometime during the final week of the auction I will give details about the bonus item which will be included for the winning bidder of this auction. It will not substantially add to the value of the item up for auction, but bidders will agree that it makes for a welcome addition to this item. Photos forthcoming.

DONATION:

After obtaining the blessing of Mrs. Lyn Ulbricht, I am pleased to share that 10% of the proceeds of this auction will be donated to FreeRoss.org. Following the successful conclusion of the auction this donation will be made in order to further FreeRoss.org's efforts towards obtaining clemency and/or a presidential pardon for Ross Ulbricht who is currently serving two life sentences in the United States Penitentiary, Tucson, AZ. Ross's trial and subsequent sentencing were obscene miscarriages of justice and I am pleased to be able to help his cause in this small way.

Sign Ross's clemency petition: https://www.change.org/p/freerosspetition-we-seek-potus-s-clemency-for-ross-ulbricht-serving-double-life-without-parole-for-a-website-realdonaldtrump-free-ross

Payment/Escrow/Shipping

Payment must be received by an agreed escrow within 48 hours of the conclusion of the auction. The escrow shall be a mutually agreeable, trustworthy member of these forums or a highly rated and trustworthy arbitrator from bitrated.com.

This item ships free anywhere in the world. I will ensure that the utmost care is taken in the handling and packaging of this delicate artifact to guarantee that the winning bidder expediently receives the entire genuine 03 Jan 2009 London Times in the expected condition as described above. Item ships from the Southern US, and if the winning bidder does not express a preference of carrier, item will ship via UPS/UPS International and will be insured to the fullest extent possible through the same.

Auction will commence approximately 12 hours from the time of this post and is scheduled to end two weeks from then. Happy Easter and good luck Smiley
