Green Collection and Christie's

If the Green Collection has been buying 'Biblical artefacts' since 2009, and bearing in mind that it subsequently acquired artefacts (reportedly) included in it, and according to his Twitter feed, Scott Carrol was in London scouting out antiquities for teh Green Collection the previous month, is there any real reason why the Green Collection was not the winner of the November 2011 Christie's auction at which a whole load of 'packets' of unstudied papyrus fragments was sold at a mere knockdown price of seven thousand quid? If it was, however, why are fragments from this stash now in the hands of a London Collector and a biblical fragment found its way to a well-known Istanbul dealer?
