<< They mean "no hidden reserve". When you sell an item, you can start
at $1, but have a reserve of $20 below which you won't sell. I think they
have this at "real" auctions as well.

Gotta watch e-bay....last year I was looking for a watch for my wife. I
found one i liked at a decent price, and saw the note..."check my web page".
The guys web page listed the watch for sale at the minimum bid! He was just
fishing for gravy on e-bay, and most likely got it!
