Or the seller thought the bidding up to that point didn't approach his
possibly overinflated expectation and bailed before he had to commit to
selling it at, say, $455? If he had no reserve then this could be a
credible second reason (I didn't check to see if he had a reserve).

I couldn't even find it in the closed or "ended auction" area. Did he or
somebody completely remove all reference to the auction? Can that be done?
