Hi Jeff, I agree. I'd have expected maybe something different (i.e. the 73663 lower and the 7863 higher) but overall these are solid and good values.
These prices are not through the roof in fact, so definitely not a "bubble", and yet good enough for the seller.
The Montreal has an outstanding case and could really look like a decent bargain for the buyer if this were the really final price, but I guess you'll then have to include buyer's premium and all that stuff which often makes buying "normal" pieces at an auction not such a real bargain…
: A quick summary, as follows (final prices; in USD; exchange rate
: at $0.1278 for 1.00 HKD) --

: Not through the roof, but relatively strong.
