All that being said, the hammer price is the closest publicly available estimate to what one would yield by selling a similar item. Although still inflated by the seller’s commission (typically 15% to start, but often subject to byzantine formulae), this is the number that is relevant to any reader whose interest is valuation of their own assets.
