Is there significance to these numbers? I would have expected them to be rounded or something

Maybe they were converted to USD from another currency

Was wondering the same thing. Maybe the winner had a max bid set and that was just the min % increase over the last round number that was bid.

Exactly what I came to say.

Another wealthy person should purchase them. It’s a very noble gesture and is worth A LOT of public good will. Somebody who’s struggling in the public eye could use this easy opportunity
