ONLINE BIDDING TERMS AND CONDITIONS:
• The conditions set forth below constitute the terms and conditions on which all property is offered for sale. Bidding at
auction, whether present or by absentee bid, the buyer agrees to be bound by these terms.
Bidders are required to register with proper identification prior to the sale and must use the number issued to them when they
are the successful bidder.
All items are sold to the highest bidder as acknowledged by the auctioneer. The auctioneer has the right to reject any bid; in
the event of a dispute between two bidders, determine the successful bidder or to re-offer and resell the lot in dispute. Should
there be any dispute after sale, the record of final sale shall be conclusive. All sales are final.
Absentee bids will be executed as a convenience to the customer; however, the auction house will not be responsible for any
errors or failure to execute bids. TELEPHONE BIDDING IS ONLY AVAILABLE ON LOTS ESTIMATED AT $100
AND OVER. A minimum bid of $25.00 required on each absentee bid. In the event a left bid is higher than competing bids in
the auction hall, the left bid will win the item at the next bidding increment, not necessarily the full amount of the bid. The
auctioneer reserves the right to withdraw any lot before or at the sale. Some items offered may be subject to a reserve, which
is the confidential minimum price below which such lot will not be sold. We may implement such reserves by bidding on behalf
of the Consigner.

been made with the auction house. Payments accepted are cash (in house only), MasterCard, Visa, Discover Card, American
Express. First time buyers must pay by cash or credit card. Failure to complete payment within the time allocated may result in
legal proceedings and most definitely will result in no-issuance of a bidding number in the future.
