Some interesting things coming up. Soon is a letter from the Lubabvitcher Rebbe - don't know if that's something that's worth a lot, starting bid is $3,800.

Original handwritten manuscript from Rav Chaim Kanievsky of Shoneh Halachos Vol. 3, starting bid $260,000

Is that how much all his letters go for, or is there something specific about this one?

I'm not a Lubabvitcher so I have no idea. But I know there are many here, so wanted to point it out. You can click on it and see the details. Or you could just wait, it will be up for bid in about 2 minutes.

I'm personally much more curious how much Rav Chaim's manuscript will go for.

It looks like a מכתב כללי פרטי (i.e. a generalized text that was sent to many at specific events) with an acknowledgment of receipt of the book "Der Shtumer Minyan" by Chaim Grade, and בכבוד ו  added in כי"ק as well as a signature.

I'm very interested to know who was selling it. FWIU all of Grada's stuff was donated to Hebrew University.

Seems like after commission and taxes, it's more like $471k

https://matzav.com/rav-chaim-kanievskys-shoneh-halachos-manuscript-sells-for-almost-500000/
No taxes for US buyers, also implied by 380K sales price x 1.24 Genazym commission=471.2K
How rare are these manuscripts?

Pretty sure this is the first time any of R Chaim's manuscripts have been sold, but Shoneh Halachos is 3 volumes IINM. This auction was for Vol 3. And presumably there are original manuscripts of the numerous other seforim of R Chaim. When they all start going to auction either the prices will start to drop or someone will end up very wealthy.
