CONTRACT: Your bid is a legally binding contract. Please don't bid unless you intend to pay in the time alloted.
PAYMENT: Payment terms for invoices $5,000 and under are approved check. WE DO NOT ACCEPT PAYPAL, CREDIT CARDS, MONEY ORDERS, CASHIERS CHECKS OR CASH (through the mail). For invoices above $5,000, we require payment by bank wire transfer. In either case payment must be paid in full within 5 business days of sale, otherwise Auctioneer may resell merchandise at public or private sale and retain 20% deposit as liquidated damages. Auctioneer may, at his discretion, hold purchases until check clears.
SHIPPING: We offer shipping on certain lots, see description. Otherwise please see our recomended shippers. Packing and shipping, in all cases, is at the cost of the buyer.
BUYERS PREMIUM: A 15% buyers premium is added to all purchases.
CONDITION: We have provided condition reports for the vast majority of lots. If you require further information please make a specific request by email and we will respond by updating the condition report on our website- so please check there for your response. Requests that are too general won't be answered when a condition report is already online. Requests for "more images" without specific requests won't be honored. We generally provide only overall condition reports on group lots. All works on paper should be assumed to have NOT been examined out of the frame. We are not able to make page counts on books- condition for books is overall and only based on a quick inspection. We are not qualified to make full condition reports on certain specialized items, such as musical instruments, vehicles or mechanical antiques so those reports will be cursory. All condition reports are to the best of our ability, but not guaranteed. Any refunds made based on condition problems will be made when the problem is deemed very significant AND reported within 10 days of sale- NO EXCEPTIONS. ALL REQUESTS FOR IMAGES AND CONDITION REPORTS SHOULD BE MADE AT LEAST 48 HOURS AHEAD OF SALE.

Our description of a lot as EXCELLENT means we found no damage or unusual wear- it does not mean flawless. A description of VERY GOOD indicates showing general normal wear from use- but no major defects. GOOD is something with considerable wear from use, but still presentable. FAIR is a highly worn and used object showing numerous defects. POOR is a "place holder" object that has serious condition issues.
