Ok, I flat out love these auctions that SecondMarket are holding for privately held Facebook shares. Last week the first one closed, and $40 million of stock changed hands at $20.76 per share, valuing the company at roughly $50 billion.

This week’s auction has now closed. Only 475,000 shares moved, compared to 1.9 million last week. The auction closing price edged up 1.2% to $21.01, about $10 million worth of stock total.

Stay tuned for next week’s auction. What do you think the closing price will be? Closest guess gets a TechCrunch tshirt.

Here’s the email to SecondMarket participants:
