<br>
PRICE ESTIMATES: As a convenience to our customers, we furnish low and high pre-sale estimates for all catalogued lots in the sale. These estimates reflect our characterization of the lot and the condition as described. The estimates are merely guides for Bidders and an opinion by Augusta Auction Co. of the wholesale trade price the lot may bring at auction. Estimates should not be relied upon to predict the actual retail price the lot will command at sale. The final hammer price may be significantly higher or may occasionally sell below the catalogue estimates. Augusta Auction Co. will not be liable if the actual selling price is different from the estimate range. Estimates do not include the buyer's premium, any applicable taxes or other charges. <br>

Preview will be held at the Auction venue, Landmark on the Park, 160 Central Park West (@76th Street), New York City on Tuesday, April 8th from 1 PM to 7 PM & on the morning of sale from 9 AM until Noon. Buyers assume responsibility to inspect the Property and make their own decisions as to the nature, quality and value of the property.

ABSENTEE, PHONE AND INTERNET BIDDING: As a convenience to customers who cannot be present at this sale, we will execute order/absentee bids, accept telephone bids, or allow bidding through Invaluable on behalf of absentee customers for purchase of auction lots.

Notifications received through the Invaluable system are not final or binding until confirmed by Augusta Auction Co. The Auction House will make every effort to ensure that online Bidders are treated equitably, accurately and identically to those from other venues. However, due to the unique features of online bidding, there is no guarantee that the item will not sell to another Bidder for less than your last intended bid due to internet traffic, or other delays outside of our control.
