Actually, there are all sorts of random items that can't be auctioned for no apparent reason. I'm pretty sure a lot of the items I've tried to auction are not quest items.

Is the item stat'd NOSELL? Does it even have stats? When auction first went in, it was explicitly stated that nostat items would not be allowed to be sold and if something slipped by the Imms would take it off auction as soon as they noticed.

Because they can be legitimately used as gear. For example, I have actually worn a red crystal earring to go zoning. I've never seen anyone else do it, though :P

Of course, in practice they usually get bid up beyond their practical value, but there's no way to prevent that.

Hehe, that's what happens when junk is sold on the auction. The auctioneer won't stand for it!
