More About this Item


Description

A POTAWATOMI BEADED AND FRINGED HIDE JACKET c. 1860 each side with stylized floral designs, stitched in various shades of opaque and translucent glass seed beads, the arms with similar designs arranged on either side of linear zigzag elements, stitched in similar colors of larger glass seed beads, hide fringe overall Provenance: The Dr. Jack and Mary Ann Adams Collection Length: 43 inches Coats and jackets made by American Indians, but following Euro-American styles, constitute an intriguing blend of the two cultures. Both groups borrowed from each other, but quite early in their mutual association -- with their decidedly creative bent, Indians came up with ideas from the objects and clothing newly available to them. In creating their own versions, Indians gave the objects their distinctive spin using native materials and techniques in part, but incorporated introduced goods as well - beads in particular. In former times, indigenous people below the Sub-Arctic regions produced little in the way of close-fitting clothing, and little of what can be termed true "outer garments." Large animal hides tanned with or without the hair or fur originally served the latter purpose. Later, woolen blankets and shawls obtained in trade with the outside commonly functioned as fundamental outer wear or coats and jackets per se. At varying points in time, different groups started adapting articles of highly tailored clothing that was more practical in form, coats and jackets included. Of course, Indians previously had received ready-made coats in trade and/or as gifts, so they were familiar with the varied styles. Before long they began to make their own versions cut from woolen blankets, as well as ones of native-tanned buckskin -- as in this example. The medium or darker shades of the respective background colors of native-tanned leather resulted either from smoking the leather prior to cutting out the component parts, or by painting the entire surface of the finished garment with powdered pigment after it was assembled-usually yellow or yellow ochre. In the latter case, beadwork was applied first and the paint applied subsequently. Elements new to Indian clothing in the innovative forms of outerwear include collars, lapels, cuffs on the sleeves, and completely open fronts with buttons and buttonholes. However, the latter two features are not present on this example. Well understood is the fact that many of the very earliest travelers to the New World enterprisingly brought glass beads of diverse sizes to use in trade with and as presents for the inhabitants with whom they'd interact. It is uncertain when Indian artists of the Eastern United States (the first region of repeated, then sustained, contact on the main continent) initially produced beadwork using "pony beads, "pound beads," "seed beads" -- whatever the types and preferred terminology, but surely it was by the last decades of the 1700's. By the middle of the next century, the highly stylized, "curvilinear" beadwork of the Southeastern and, later, Prairie tribes including the Potawatomi, Winnebago, Sauk, Fox, Otoe, Missouria, Ponca, Oto, Ioway, Kaw, and Osage began to develop as an elaborative genre. Although the beadworkers found some ideas for motifs in introduced / non-Indian sources -- such as printed cloth in particular, the roots of the "Prairie" beadwork design corpus are to be found in pre-contact sources such as incised shell and pottery, designs scraped on birchbark, porcupine quill embroidery, and even pre-contact fabrics of native manufacture. Since its onset the "appliqué" or "two-needle" technique continues to today in as the most appropriate and efficient technique to execute the graceful designs encompassed by this genre of beadwork. Basically, one thread carries the beads, and the second tacks down the first, stitching over the first thread and between every two beads. Certainly laborious, but an accomplished beadworker can turn out beautiful pieces more expediently than one might imagine. Generally most beadworkers save time and motion by working with the hands on the top side of the material only, be it buckskin or cloth. What has become known as "Prairie beadwork" stems from the tribes geographically located from Southern Wisconsin to Eastern Oklahoma-the "long grass prairies," as the region is often termed, or the "savannah country" or Eastern Plains." The "Prairie beadwork genre" constitutes an "area art style." Essentially, diverse small motifs are arranged to form larger blocks of design. The motifs range from rather abstract "curvilinear" to semi-realistic and even floral elements that are quite realistic in character. This jacket displays an effective approach to executing the beaded designs in that the initial rows or lines of beads applied to demarcate the motifs (that are in fact the outermost rows) are subsequently mirrored by a second inner row. However, beadwork filling is omitted from the interior of the individual elements. Consequently, it remains for the background color of the leather visually to fill in these areas. Likewise, instead of the overall complex of designs being universally outlined with white beads as is the more usual approach, various rich colors were chosen to enliven the patterns. The extensive amount of beading evident on this jacket makes it an exceptional example of the object type. The layout of the beadwork, indeed the overall sense or "feel" of combined characteristics of this garment closely parallels that seen on bandolier bags, moccasins, wearing blankets, shirts, leggings, skirts, and other objects produced by beadwork artists of the Potawatomi Tribe.

conducted under these Terms and Conditions of Auction and applicable state and local law.
Announcements and corrections from the podium and those made through the Terms and
Conditions of Auctions appearing on the Internet at HA.com supersede those in the printed
catalog.
Buyer's Premium:
2. On bids placed through Auctioneer, a Buyer's Premium of fifteen percent (15%) will be added
to the successful hammer price bid on lots in Coin, Currency, and Philatelic auctions or
nineteen and one-half percent (19.5%) on lots in all other auctions. There is a minimum Buyer's
Premium of $14.00 per lot. In Gallery Auctions (sealed bid auctions of mostly bulk numismatic
material), the Buyer's Premium is 19.5%.
Auction Venues:
3. The following Auctions are conducted solely on the Internet: Heritage Weekly Internet Auctions
(Coin, Currency, Comics, and Vintage Movie Poster); Heritage Monthly Internet Auctions
(Sports, and Stamps). Signature® Auctions and Grand Format Auctions accept bids from the
Internet, telephone, fax, or mail first, followed by a floor bidding session; Heritage Live and
real-time telephone bidding are available to registered clients during these auctions.
Bidders:
4. Any person participating or registering for the Auction agrees to be bound by and accepts these
Terms and Conditions of Auction ("Bidder(s)").
5. All Bidders must meet Auctioneer's qualifications to bid. Any Bidder who is not a client in
good standing of the Auctioneer may be disqualified at Auctioneer's sole option and will not
be awarded lots. Such determination may be made by Auctioneer in its sole and unlimited
discretion, at any time prior to, during, or even after the close of the Auction. Auctioneer
reserves the right to exclude any person from the auction.
6. If an entity places a bid, then the person executing the bid on behalf of the entity agrees to
personally guarantee payment for any successful bid.
Credit:
7. Bidders who have not established credit with the Auctioneer must either furnish satisfactory
credit information (including two collectibles-related business references) well in advance
of the Auction or supply valid credit card information. Bids placed through our Interactive
Internet program will only be accepted from pre-registered Bidders; Bidders who are not
members of HA.com or affiliates should pre-register at least 48 hours before the start of the
first session (exclusive of holidays or weekends) to allow adequate time to contact references.

previously established credit or who wish to bid in excess of their established credit history
may be required to provide their social security number or the last four digits thereof to us so a

Bidding Options:
8. Bids in Signature® Auctions or Grand Format Auctions may be placed as set forth in the printed
catalog section entitled "Choose your bidding method." For auctions held solely on the Internet,
see the alternatives on HA.com. Review at HA.com/common/howtobid.php.
9. Presentment of Bids: Non-Internet bids (including but not limited to podium, fax, phone
and mail bids) are treated similar to floor bids in that they must be on-increment or at a half
increment (called a cut bid). Any podium, fax, phone, or mail bids that do not conform to a full
or half increment will be rounded up or down to the nearest full or half increment and this
revised amount will be considered your high bid.
10. Auctioneer's Execution of Certain Bids. Auctioneer cannot be responsible for your errors in
bidding, so carefully check that every bid is entered correctly. When identical mail or FAX
bids are submitted, preference is given to the first received. To ensure the greatest accuracy,
your written bids should be entered on the standard printed bid sheet and be received at
Auctioneer's place of business at least two business days before the Auction start. Auctioneer
is not responsible for executing mail bids or FAX bids received on or after the day the first
lot is sold, nor Internet bids submitted after the published closing time; nor is Auctioneer
responsible for proper execution of bids submitted by telephone, mail, FAX, e-mail, Internet,
or in person once the Auction begins. Internet bids may not be withdrawn until your written
request is received and acknowledged by Auctioneer (FAX: 214-4438425); such requests must
state the reason, and may constitute grounds for withdrawal of bidding privileges. Lots won
by mail Bidders will not be delivered at the Auction unless prearranged.
11. Caveat as to Bid Increments. Bid increments (over the current bid level) determine the lowest
amount you may bid on a particular lot. Bids greater than one increment over the current bid
can be any whole dollar amount. It is possible under several circumstances for winning bids
to be between increments, sometimes only $1 above the previous increment. Please see: "How
can I lose by less than an increment?" on our website. Bids will be accepted in whole dollar
amounts only. No "buy" or "unlimited" bids will be accepted.
The following chart governs current bidding increments.
Current Bid.....................Bid Increment Current Bid.......................Bid Increment

$10,000 - $19,999................$1,000
12. If Auctioneer calls for a full increment, a bidder may request Auctioneer to accept a bid at half
of the increment ("Cut Bid") only once per lot. After offering a Cut Bid, bidders may continue
to participate only at full increments. Off-increment bids may be accepted by the Auctioneer at
Signature® Auctions and Grand Format Auctions. If the Auctioneer solicits bids other than the
expected increment, these bids will not be considered Cut Bids.
Conducting the Auction:
13. Notice of the consignor's liberty to place bids on his lots in the Auction is hereby made in
accordance with Article 2 of the Texas Business and Commercial Code. A "Minimum Bid" is
an amount below which the lot will not sell. THE CONSIGNOR OF PROPERTY MAY PLACE
WRITTEN "Minimum Bids" ON HIS LOTS IN ADVANCE OF THE AUCTION; ON SUCH
LOTS, IF THE HAMMER PRICE DOES NOT MEET THE "Minimum Bid", THE CONSIGNOR
MAY PAY A REDUCED COMMISSION ON THOSE LOTS. "Minimum Bids" are generally
posted online several days prior to the Auction closing. For any successful bid placed by a
consignor on his Property on the Auction floor, or by any means during the live session, or
after the "Minimum Bid" for an Auction have been posted, we will require the consignor to pay
full Buyer's Premium and Seller's Commissions on such lot.
14. The highest qualified Bidder recognized by the Auctioneer shall be the buyer. In the event
of a tie bid, the earliest bid received or recognized wins. In the event of any dispute between
any Bidders at an Auction, Auctioneer may at his sole discretion reoffer the lot. Auctioneer's
decision and declaration of the winning Bidder shall be final and binding upon all Bidders.
Bids properly offered, whether by floor Bidder or other means of bidding, may on occasion
be missed or go unrecognized; in such cases, the Auctioneer may declare the recognized bid
accepted as the winning bid, regardless of whether a competing bid may have been higher.
15. Auctioneer reserves the right to refuse to honor any bid or to limit the amount of any bid, in
its sole discretion. A bid is considered not made in "Good Faith" when made by an insolvent
or irresponsible person, a person under the age of eighteen, or is not supported by satisfactory
credit, collectibles references, or otherwise. Regardless of the disclosure of his identity, any bid
by a consignor or his agent on a lot consigned by him is deemed to be made in "Good Faith."
Any person apparently appearing on the OFAC list is not eligible to bid.
16. Nominal Bids. The Auctioneer in its sole discretion may reject nominal bids, small opening
bids, or very nominal advances. If a lot bearing estimates fails to open for 40-60% of the low
estimate, the Auctioneer may pass the item or may place a protective bid on behalf of the
consignor.
17. Lots bearing bidding estimates shall open at Auctioneer's discretion (approximately 50%-60%
of the low estimate). In the event that no bid meets or exceeds that opening amount, the lot
shall pass as unsold.
18. All items are to be purchased per lot as numerically indicated and no lots will be broken.
Auctioneer reserves the right to withdraw, prior to the close, any lots from the Auction.
19. Auctioneer reserves the right to rescind the sale in the event of nonpayment, breach of a
warranty, disputed ownership, auctioneer's clerical error or omission in exercising bids and
reserves, or for any other reason and in Auctioneer's sole discretion. In cases of nonpayment,
Auctioneer's election to void a sale does not relieve the Bidder from their obligation to
pay Auctioneer its fees (seller's and buyer's premium) and any other damages or expenses
pertaining to the lot.
20. Auctioneer occasionally experiences Internet and/or Server service outages, and Auctioneer
periodically schedules system downtime for maintenance and other purposes, during which
Bidders cannot participate or place bids. If such outages occur, we may at our discretion extend
bidding for the Auction. Bidders unable to place their Bids through the Internet are directed to
contact Client Services at 1-800-872-6467.
21. The Auctioneer, its affiliates, or their employees consign items to be sold in the Auction, and
may bid on those lots or any other lots. Auctioneer or affiliates expressly reserve the right
to modify any such bids at any time prior to the hammer based upon data made known to
the Auctioneer or its affiliates. The Auctioneer may extend advances, guarantees, or loans to
certain consignors.
22. The Auctioneer has the right to sell certain unsold items after the close of the Auction. Such lots
shall be considered sold during the Auction and all these Terms and Conditions shall apply to
such sales including but not limited to the Buyer's Premium, return rights, and disclaimers.
Payment:
23. All sales are strictly for cash in United States dollars (including U.S. currency, bank wire,
cashier checks, travelers checks, eChecks, and bank money orders, all subject to reporting
requirements). All are subject to clearing and funds being received In Auctioneer's account
before delivery of the purchases. Auctioneer reserves the right to determine if a check
constitutes "good funds" when drawn on a U.S. bank for ten days, and thirty days when drawn
on an international bank. Credit Card (Visa or Master Card only) and PayPal payments may
be accepted up to $10,000 from non-dealers at the sole discretion of the Auctioneer, subject to
the following limitations: a) sales are only to the cardholder, b) purchases are shipped to the
cardholder's registered and verified address, c) Auctioneer may pre-approve the cardholder's
credit line, d) a credit card transaction may not be used in conjunction with any other financing
or extended terms offered by the Auctioneer, and must transact immediately upon invoice
presentation, e) rights of return are governed by these Terms and Conditions, which supersede
those conditions promulgated by the card issuer, f) floor Bidders must present their card.
24. Payment is due upon closing of the Auction session, or upon presentment of an invoice.
Auctioneer reserves the right to void an invoice if payment in full is not received within 7
days after the close of the Auction. In cases of nonpayment, Auctioneer's election to void a sale
does not relieve the Bidder from their obligation to pay Auctioneer its fees (seller's and buyer's
premium) on the lot and any other damages pertaining to the lot.
25. Lots delivered to you, or your representative in the States of Texas, California, New York, or
other states where the Auction may be held, are subject to all applicable state and local taxes,
unless appropriate permits are on file with Auctioneer. Bidder agrees to pay Auctioneer the
actual amount of tax due in the event that sales tax is not properly collected due to: 1) an
expired, inaccurate, inappropriate tax certificate or declaration, 2) an incorrect interpretation
of the applicable statute, 3) or any other reason. The appropriate form or certificate must be
on file at and verified by Auctioneer five days prior to Auction or tax must be paid; only if such
form or certificate is received by Auctioneer within 4 days after the Auction can a refund of tax
paid be made. Lots from different Auctions may not be aggregated for sales tax purposes.
26. In the event that a Bidder's payment is dishonored upon presentment(s), Bidder shall pay the
maximum statutory processing fee set by applicable state law. If you attempt to pay via eCheck
and your financial institution denies this transfer from your bank account, or the payment
cannot be completed using the selected funding source, you agree to complete payment using
your credit card on file.
27. If any Auction invoice submitted by Auctioneer is not paid in full when due, the unpaid balance
will bear interest at the highest rate permitted by law from the date of invoice until paid. Any
invoice not paid when due will bear a three percent (3%) late fee on the invoice amount or
three percent (3%) of any installment that is past due. If the Auctioneer refers any invoice
to an attorney for collection, the buyer agrees to pay attorney's fees, court costs, and other
collection costs incurred by Auctioneer. If Auctioneer assigns collection to its in-house legal
staff, such attorney's time expended on the matter shall be compensated at a rate comparable
to the hourly rate of independent attorneys.
28. In the event a successful Bidder fails to pay any amounts due, Auctioneer reserves the right to sell
the lot(s) securing the invoice to any underbidders in the Auction that the lot(s) appeared, or at
subsequent private or public sale, or relist the lot(s) in a future auction conducted by Auctioneer.
A defaulting Bidder agrees to pay for the reasonable costs of resale (including a 10% seller's
commission, if consigned to an auction conducted by Auctioneer). The defaulting Bidder is liable
to pay any difference between his total original invoice for the lot(s), plus any applicable interest,
and the net proceeds for the lot(s) if sold at private sale or the subsequent hammer price of the
lot(s) less the 10% seller's commissions, if sold at an Auctioneer's auction.
29. Auctioneer reserves the right to require payment in full in good funds before delivery of the
merchandise.
30. Auctioneer shall have a lien against the merchandise purchased by the buyer to secure payment
of the Auction invoice. Auctioneer is further granted a lien and the right to retain possession of
any other property of the buyer then held by the Auctioneer or its affiliates to secure payment
of any Auction invoice or any other amounts due the Auctioneer or affiliates from the buyer.
With respect to these lien rights, Auctioneer shall have all the rights of a secured creditor
under Article 9 of the Texas Uniform Commercial Code, including but not limited to the right
of sale. In addition, with respect to payment of the Auction invoice(s), the buyer waives any
and all rights of offset he might otherwise have against the Auctioneer and the consignor of
the merchandise included on the invoice. If a Bidder owes Auctioneer or its affiliates on any
account, Auctioneer and its affiliates shall have the right to offset such unpaid account by any
credit balance due Bidder, and it may secure by possessory lien any unpaid amount by any of
the Bidder's property in their possession.

agrees that any claim shall utilize such remedies; Bidder making a claim in excess of those
remedies provided in these Terms and Conditions agrees that in no case whatsoever shall

all purposes the value of the lot.

Additional Terms & Conditions:
Coins & Curency
COINS and CURRENCY TERM A: Signature® Auctions are not on approval. No certified material may
be returned because of possible differences of opinion with respect to the grade offered by any thirdparty
organization, dealer, or service. No guarantee of grade is offered for uncertified Property sold
and subsequently submitted to a third-party grading service. There are absolutely no exceptions to
this policy. Under extremely limited circumstances, (e.g. gross cataloging error) a purchaser, who
did not bid from the floor, may request Auctioneer to evaluate voiding a sale: such request must be
made in writing detailing the alleged gross error; submission of the lot to the Auctioneer must be
pre-approved by the Auctioneer; and bidder must notify Ron Brackemyre (1-800-8726467 Ext. 1312)
in writing of such request within three (3) days of the non-floor bidder's receipt of the lot. Any lot
that is to be evaluated must be in our offices within 30 days after Auction. Grading or method of
manufacture do not qualify for this evaluation process nor do such complaints constitute a basis to
challenge the authenticity of a lot. AFTER THAT 30-DAY PERIOD, NO LOTS MAY BE RETURNED
FOR REASONS OTHER THAN AUTHENTICITY. Lots returned must be housed intact in their
original holder. No lots purchased by floor Bidders may be returned (including those Bidders acting
as agents for others) except for authenticity. Late remittance for purchases may be considered just
cause to revoke all return privileges.
COINS and CURRENCY TERM B: Auctions conducted solely on the Internet THREE (3) DAY RETURN
POLICY: Certified Coin and Uncertified and Certified Currency lots paid for within seven days of the
Auction closing are sold with a three (3) day return privilege. You may return lots under the following
conditions: Within three days of receipt of the lot, you must first notify Auctioneer by contacting

fully insured to the attention of Returns, Heritage, 3500 Maple Avenue, 17th Floor, Dallas TX 75219-
3941. Lots must be housed intact in their original holder and condition. You are responsible for the
insured, safe delivery of any lots. A non-negotiable return fee of 5% of the purchase price ($10 per
lot minimum) will be deducted from the refund for each returned lot or billed directly. Postage and
handling fees are not refunded. After the three-day period (from receipt), no items may be returned
for any reason. Late remittance for purchases revokes these Return privileges.
COINS and CURRENCY TERM C: Bidders who have inspected the lots prior to any Auction, or attended
the Auction, or bid through an Agent, will not be granted any return privileges, except for reasons
of authenticity.
COINS and CURRENCY TERM D: Coins sold referencing a third-party grading service are sold "as
is" without any express or implied warranty, except for a guarantee by Auctioneer that they are
genuine. Certain warranties may be available from the grading services and the Bidder is referred
to them for further details: Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), P.O. Box 4776, Sarasota, FL
34230; Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS), PO Box 9458, Newport Beach, CA 92658; ANACS,
6555 S. Kenton St. Ste. 303, Englewood, CO 80111; and Independent Coin Grading Co. (ICG), 7901
East Belleview Ave., Suite 50, Englewood, CO 80111.
COINS and CURRENCY TERM E: Notes sold referencing a third-party grading service are sold "as is"
without any express or implied warranty, except for guarantee by Auctioneer that they are genuine.
Grading, condition or other attributes of any lot may have a material effect on its value, and the
opinion of others, including third-party grading services such as PCGS Currency, PMG, and CGA
may differ with that of Auctioneer. Auctioneer shall not be bound by any prior or subsequent opinion,
determination, or certification by any grading service. Bidder specifically waives any claim to right
of return of any item because of the opinion, determination, or certification, or lack thereof, by any
grading service. Certain warranties may be available from the grading services and the Bidder is
referred to them for further details: Paper Money Guaranty (PMG), PO Box 4711, Sarasota FL 34230;
PCGS Currency, PO Box 9458, Newport Beach, CA 92658; Currency Grading & Authentication
(CGA), PO Box 418, Three Bridges, NJ 08887. Third party graded notes are not returnable for any
reason whatsoever.
COINS and CURRENCY TERM F: Since we cannot examine encapsulated coins or notes, they are sold
"as is" without our grading opinion, and may not be returned for any reason. Auctioneer shall not be
liable for any patent or latent defect or controversy pertaining to or arising from any encapsulated
collectible. In any such instance, purchaser's remedy, if any, shall be solely against the service
certifying the collectible.
COINS and CURRENCY TERM G: Due to changing grading standards over time, differing
interpretations, and to possible mishandling of items by subsequent owners, Auctioneer reserves the
right to grade items differently than shown on certificates from any grading service that accompany
the items. Auctioneer also reserves the right to grade items differently than the grades shown in the
prior catalog should such items be reconsigned to any future auction.
COINS and CURRENCY TERM H: Although consensus grading is employed by most grading services,
it should be noted as aforesaid that grading is not an exact science. In fact, it is entirely possible that
if a lot is broken out of a plastic holder and resubmitted to another grading service or even to the
same service, the lot could come back with a different grade assigned.
COINS and CURRENCY TERM I: Certification does not guarantee protection against the normal
risks associated with potentially volatile markets. The degree of liquidity for certified coins and
collectibles will vary according to general market conditions and the particular lot involved. For
some lots there may be no active market at all at certain points in time.
COINS and CURRENCY TERM J: All non-certified coins and currency are guaranteed genuine, but
are not guaranteed as to grade, since grading is a matter of opinion, an art and not a science, and
therefore the opinion rendered by the Auctioneer or any third party grading service may not agree
with the opinion of others (including trained experts), and the same expert may not grade the same
item with the same grade at two different times. Auctioneer has graded the non-certified numismatic
items, in the Auctioneer's opinion, to their current interpretation of the American Numismatic
Association's standards as of the date the catalog was prepared. There is no guarantee or warranty
implied or expressed that the grading standards utilized by the Auctioneer will meet the standards
of any grading service at any time in the future.
COINS and CURRENCY TERM K: Storage of purchased coins and currency: Purchasers are advised
that certain types of plastic may react with a coin's metal or transfer plasticizer to notes and may
cause damage. Caution should be used to avoid storage in materials that are not inert.
COINS and CURRENCY TERM L: Storage of purchased coins and currency: Purchasers are advised that
certain types of plastic may react with a coin's metal or transfer plasticizer to notes and may cause
damage. Caution should be used to avoid storage in materials that are not inert.
COINS and CURRENCY TERM M: NOTE: Purchasers of rare coins or currency through Heritage have
available the option of arbitration by the Professional Numismatists Guild (PNG); if an election is
not made within ten (10) days of an unresolved dispute, Auctioneer may elect either PNG or A.A.A.
Arbitration.
COINS and CURRENCY TERM N: For more information regarding Canadian lots attributed to the
Charlton reference guides, please contact: Charlton International, PO Box 820, Station Willowdale
B, North York, Ontario M2K 2R1 Canada.

such authentication and validates the claim, Auctioneer's liability for reimbursement for any
opine by Bidder's expert shall not exceed $500. Acceptance of a claim under this provision shall
be limited to rescission of the sale and refund of purchase price; in no case shall Auctioneer's

the value of the lot. While every effort is made to determine provenance and authenticity, it is
the responsibility of the Bidder to arrive at their own conclusion prior to bidding.
MEMORABILIA & HISTORICAL TERM D: In the event Auctioneer cannot deliver the lot or
subsequently it is established that the lot lacks title, or other transfer or condition issue is

SPORTS COLLECTIBLES TERM E: Auctioneer does not warrant authenticity of a sports memorabilia
lot when the lot is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity, or its equivalent, from an
independent third-party authentication provider. Bidder shall solely rely upon warranties
of the authentication provider issuing the Certificate or opinion. For information as to such
authentication provider's warranties the bidder is directed to: SCD Authentic, 4034 West National
Ave., Milwaukee, WI 53215 (800) 345-3168; JO Sports, Inc., P.O. Box 607 Brookhaven, NY

Autographs, 8150 Raintree Drive Suite A, Scottsdale, AZ. 85260; or as otherwise noted on the
Certificate.
SPORTS COLLECTIBLES TERM F: Bidders who intend to challenge authenticity or provenance of a
lot must notify Auctioneer in writing within thirty (30) days of the Auction's conclusion. In the
event Auctioneer cannot deliver the lot or subsequently it is established that the lot lacks title,
provenance, authenticity, or other transfer or condition issue is claimed, Auctioneer's liability shall
be limited to rescission of sale and refund of purchase price; in no case shall Auctioneer's maximum
liability exceed the high bid on that lot, which bid shall be deemed for all purposes the value of the
lot. After one year has elapsed, Auctioneer's maximum liability shall be limited to any commissions
and fees Auctioneer earned on that lot.
SPORTS COLLECTIBLES TERM G: Auctioneer shall not be liable for any patent or latent defect or
controversy pertaining to or arising from any encapsulated collectible. In any such instance,
purchaser's remedy, if any, shall be solely against the service certifying the collectible.
SPORTS COLLECTIBLES TERM H: Due to changing grading standards over time, differing
interpretations, and to possible mishandling of items by subsequent owners, Auctioneer reserves
the right to grade items differently than shown on certificates from any grading service that
accompany the items. Auctioneer also reserves the right to grade items differently than the grades
shown in the prior catalog should such items be reconsigned to any future auction.
SPORTS COLLECTIBLES TERM I: Although consensus grading is employed by most third-party
services, it should be noted as aforesaid that grading is not an exact science. In fact, it is entirely
possible that if a lot is broken out of a plastic holder and resubmitted to another grading service or
even to the same service, the lot could come back with a different grade assigned.
SPORTS COLLECTIBLES TERM J: Certification does not guarantee protection against the normal risks
associated with potentially volatile markets. The degree of liquidity for certified collectibles will
vary according to general market conditions and the particular lot involved. For some lots there
may be no active market at all at certain points in time.

COMICS & COMIC ART AUCTIONS
COMICS & COMIC ART TERM A: Signature® Auctions are not on approval. No certified material may
be returned because of possible differences of opinion with respect to the grade offered by any thirdparty
organization, dealer, or service. No guarantee of grade is offered for uncertified Property sold
and subsequently submitted to a third-party grading service. There are absolutely no exceptions to
this policy. Under extremely limited circumstances, (e.g. gross cataloging error) a purchaser, who
did not bid from the floor, may request Auctioneer to evaluate voiding a sale; such request must be
made in writing detailing the alleged gross error, and submission of the lot to the Auctioneer must
be pre-approved by the Auctioneer. A bidder must notify the appropriate department head (check
the inside front cover of the catalog or our website for a listing of department heads) in writing of
such request within three (3) days of the non-floor bidder's receipt of the lot. Any lot that is to be
evaluated must be in our offices within 30 days after Auction. Grading does not qualify for this
evaluation process nor do such complaints constitute a basis to challenge the authenticity of a lot.
AFTER THAT 30-DAY PERIOD, NO LOTS MAY BE RETURNED FOR REASONS OTHER THAN
AUTHENTICITY. Lots returned must be housed intact in the original holder. No lots purchased by
floor Bidders may be returned (including those Bidders acting as agents for others). Late remittance
for purchases may be considered just cause to revoke all return privileges.
COMICS & COMIC ART TERM B: Auctions conducted solely on the Internet have a THREE (3) DAY
RETURN POLICY: Lots paid for within seven days of the Auction closing are sold with a three (3)
day return privilege. You may return lots under the following conditions: Within three days of
receipt of the lot, you must first notify Auctioneer by contacting Client Service by phone (1-800-
872-6467) or e-mail ([email protected]), and immediately mail the lot(s) fully insured to the attention
of Returns, Heritage, 3500 Maple Avenue, 17th Floor, Dallas TX 75219-3941. Lots must be housed
intact in their original holder and condition. You are responsible for the insured, safe delivery of
any lots. A non-negotiable return fee of 5% of the purchase price ($10 per lot minimum) will be
deducted from the refund for each returned lot or billed directly. Postage and handling fees are not
refunded. After the three-day period (from receipt), no items may be returned for any reason. Late
remittance for purchases revokes all Return-Restock privileges.
COMICS & COMIC ART TERM C: Bidders who have inspected the lots prior to the auction will not be
granted any return privileges.
COMICS & COMIC ART TERM D: Comic books sold referencing a third-party grading service are
sold "as is" without any express or implied warranty. Certain warranties may be available from
the grading services and the Bidder is referred to them for further details: Comics Guaranty
Corporation (CGC), P.O. Box 4738, Sarasota, FL 34230.
COMICS & COMIC ART TERM E: Bidders who intend to challenge authenticity or provenance of a
lot must notify Auctioneer in writing within thirty (30) days of the Auction's conclusion. In the
event Auctioneer cannot deliver the lot or subsequently it is established that the lot lacks title,
provenance, authenticity, or other transfer or condition issue is claimed, Auctioneer's liability shall
be limited to rescission of sale and refund of purchase price; in no case shall Auctioneer's maximum
liability exceed the high bid on that lot, which bid shall be deemed for all purposes the value of the
lot. After one year has elapsed, Auctioneer's maximum liability shall be limited to any commissions
and fees Auctioneer earned on that lot.
COMICS & COMIC ART TERM F: All comics are guaranteed genuine, but are not guaranteed as to
grade, since grading is a matter of opinion, an art and not a science, and therefore the opinion
rendered by the Auctioneer or any third party grading service may not agree with the opinion of
others (including trained experts), and the same expert may not grade the same item with the same
grade at two different times.
COMICS & COMIC ART TERM G: Since we cannot examine encapsulated comics, they are sold "as
is" without our grading opinion, and may not be returned for any reason. Auctioneer shall not be
liable for any patent or latent defect or controversy pertaining to or arising from any encapsulated
collectible. In any such instance, purchaser's remedy, if any, shall be solely against the service
certifying the collectible.
COMICS & COMIC ART TERM H: Due to changing grading standards over time, differing
interpretations, and to possible mishandling of items by subsequent owners, Auctioneer reserves
the right to grade items differently than shown on certificates from any grading service that

JEWELRY & WATCH TERM A: JEWELRY: As most jewelry sold at auction has been worn, and may
have been previously repaired, altered, or embellished, ALL LOTS are sold AS IS. Such wear, repairs
or changes may display varying levels of evidence, so it is the responsibility of each prospective
bidder to fully inspect each lot before bidding and rely upon their own judgment prior to placing
a bid. Bidder acknowledges that the absence of any reference to their condition does not imply the
absence of wear, repairs, or defects.
JEWELRY & WATCH TERM B: WATCHES: As most watches sold at auction have been worn, and may
have been previously repaired, altered, or embellished, ALL LOTS are sold AS IS. Such wear, repairs
or changes may display varying levels of evidence, so it is the responsibility of each prospective

a bid. Bidder acknowledges that the absence of any reference to their condition does not imply the
absence of wear, repairs, or defects.
JEWELRY & WATCH TERM C: All descriptions and statements in this catalog and subsequent invoices
regarding measurement, authorship, source or origin, or other aspects are qualified opines and
do not constitute a warranty or representation, and are provided for identification purposes only.
Auctioneer warrants only such authorship, period or culture of each lot is as set out in the BOLD
faced type heading in the catalog description of the lot, with the following exclusions: this warranty
does not apply to any catalog description where it was specifically mentioned that there is a conflict
of specialist opinion on the authorship of a lot; or authorship which on the date of Auction was
in accordance with the then generally accepted opinion of scholars and specialists, despite the
subsequent discovery of new information, whether historical or physical, concerning the artist or
craftsman, his students, school, workshop or followers; or opines which may be proven inaccurate
by means of scientific processes not generally accepted for use or which were unreasonably
expensive or impractical to use at the time of publication of the catalog. Such limited warranty as
to authorship is provided for a period of one (1) year from the date of the auction and is only for
the benefit of the original purchaser of record and is not transferable, and any claim regarding a
bold-faced provision must be accompanied by two written letters by independent and authorized
appraisers in support of the claim. It is specifically understood that any refund agreed to by the
Auctioneer would be limited to the purchase price.
JEWELRY & WATCH TERM D: The Auction is not on approval. Under extremely limited
circumstances not including authenticity (e.g. gross cataloging error), a purchaser who did not
bid from the floor may request Auctioneer to evaluate voiding a sale; such request must be made
in writing detailing the alleged gross error, and submission of the lot to Auctioneer must be
pre-approved by Auctioneer. A bidder must notify the appropriate department head (check the
inside front cover of the catalog or our website for a listing of department heads) in writing of the
purchaser's request within three (3) days of the non-floor bidder's receipt of the lot. Any lot that is to
be evaluated for return must be received in our offices within 30 days after Auction. AFTER THAT
30 DAY PERIOD, NO LOT MAY BE RETURNED FOR ANY REASONS. Lots returned must be in the
same condition as when sold and must include any Certificate of Authenticity. No lots purchased by
floor bidders may be returned (including those bidders acting as agents for others). Late remittance
for purchases may be considered just cause to revoke all return privileges.
JEWELRY & WATCH TERM E: Pre-auction estimates of value or "bidding estimates" are opines
provided solely as a convenience to clients, and should only be used as approximations of current
market value. Estimates do not include Buyer's Premiums or sales tax.
JEWELRY & WATCH TERM F: In the event Auctioneer cannot deliver the lot or subsequently it is
established that the lot lacks title or the bold faced section of description is incorrect, or other
transfer or condition issue is claimed, Auctioneer's liability shall be limited to rescission of sale and
refund of purchase price; in no case shall Auctioneer's maximum liability exceed the high bid on
that lot, which bid shall be deemed for all purposes the value of the lot. After one year has elapsed,
Auctioneer's maximum liability shall be limited to any commissions and fees Auctioneer earned
on that lot.
JEWELRY & WATCH TERM G: Provenance and authenticity are not guaranteed by the consignor
or the Auctioneer. While every effort is made to determine provenance and authenticity, it is the
responsibility of the Bidder to arrive at their own conclusion prior to bidding. Provenance or other
information regarding history of ownership may be provided if known, or may be excluded at the
request of the consignor.

competent watchmaker with respect to such attributes.
JEWELRY & WATCH TERM J: All dimensions in catalog descriptions are approximate.
JEWELRY & WATCH TERM K: Condition reports are provided as a service to clients. Buyers should
note that descriptions of property are not warranties and that watches may need general service,
change of battery or further repair work for which the buyer is solely responsible.

items made of ivory and tortoise may be subject to restrictions in certain countries.

STAMPS & PHILATELIC ITEMS
STAMPS & PHILATELIC ITEMS TERM A: Signature® Auctions are not on approval. No certified
material may be returned because of possible differences of opinion with respect to the grade
offered by any third-party organization, dealer, or service. No guarantee of grade is offered for

of the lot to the Auctioneer must be pre-approved by the Auctioneer; and bidder must notify Jessica

certification or grading service are sold "As Is" Without Warranty. Bidder shall solely
rely upon warranties of the authentication provider issuing the Certificate or opinion. Grading,

others, including third-party grading services such as PSE, PF, and APEX may differ with that of
Auctioneer. Auctioneer shall not be bound by any prior or subsequent opinion, determination, or
certification by any grading service. Bidder specifically waives any claim to right of return of any
item because of the opinion, determination, or certification, or lack thereof, by any grading service.

whatsoever. Auctioneer shall not be liable for any patent or latent defect or controversy pertaining
to or arising from any encapsulated collectible. In any such instance, purchaser's remedy, if any,
shall be solely against the service certifying the collectible.
STAMPS & PHILATELIC ITEMS TERM E: In the event Auctioneer cannot deliver the lot or

STAMPS & PHILATELIC ITEMS TERM G: Auctioneer does not warrant provenance of a stamp
or philatelic item; it is the responsibility of the Bidder to arrive at their own conclusion prior to

accompany the items. Auctioneer also reserves the right to grade items differently than the grades
shown in the prior catalog should such items be reconsigned to any future auction.
STAMPS & PHILATELIC ITEMS TERM I: Certification does not guarantee protection against the
normal risks associated with potentially volatile markets. The degree of liquidity for certified and
graded stamps and collectibles will vary according to general market conditions and the particular
lot involved. For some lots there may be no active market at all at certain points in time.
STAMPS & PHILATELIC ITEMS TERM J: Storage of purchased stamps and philatelic items:
Purchasers are advised that certain types of plastic may react with a stamp's ink(s), gum and/or
paper or transfer plasticizer to stamps and may cause damage. Caution should be used to avoid
storage in materials that are not inert.
STAMPS & PHILATELICS TERM K: Extension Policy:
a. The successful bidder may request the Auctioneer to have a Property or Properties authenticated
by an expertizing service set forth in Auctioneer's preapproved expertizing committees. The extension

extended pay for the Property immediately.

cancellation of its invoice after 120 days following the last day of the sale. Properties sent to an

foregoing time periods, the successful bidder is responsible to immediately pay for the Property.
i. The Property must be returned to the Auctioneer in the same condition as when delivered to

24. Payment is due upon closing of the Auction session, or upon presentment of an invoice.
Auctioneer reserves the right to void an invoice if payment in full is not received within 7

does not relieve the Bidder from their obligation to pay Auctioneer its fees (seller’s and buyer’s
premium) on the lot and any other damages pertaining to the lot.
25. Lots delivered to you, or your representative in the States of Texas, California, New York, or
other states where the Auction may be held, are subject to all applicable state and local taxes,
unless appropriate permits are on file with Auctioneer. Bidder agrees to pay Auctioneer the
actual amount of tax due in the event that sales tax is not properly collected due to: 1) an
expired, inaccurate, inappropriate tax certificate or declaration, 2) an incorrect interpretation
of the applicable statute, 3) or any other reason. The appropriate form or certificate must be
on file at and verified by Auctioneer five days prior to Auction or tax must be paid; only if such
form or certificate is received by Auctioneer within 4 days after the Auction can a refund of tax
paid be made. Lots from different Auctions may not be aggregated for sales tax purposes.
26. In the event that a Bidder’s payment is dishonored upon presentment(s), Bidder shall pay the
maximum statutory processing fee set by applicable state law. If you attempt to pay via eCheck

your credit card on file.
27. If any Auction invoice submitted by Auctioneer is not paid in full when due, the unpaid balance
will bear interest at the highest rate permitted by law from the date of invoice until paid. Any
invoice not paid when due will bear a three percent (3%) late fee on the invoice amount or
three percent (3%) of any installment that is past due. If the Auctioneer refers any invoice
to an attorney for collection, the buyer agrees to pay attorney’s fees, court costs, and other
collection costs incurred by Auctioneer. If Auctioneer assigns collection to its in-house legal
staff, such attorney’s time expended on the matter shall be compensated at a rate comparable
to the hourly rate of independent attorneys.
28. In the event a successful Bidder fails to pay any amounts due, Auctioneer reserves the right to sell
the lot(s) securing the invoice to any underbidders in the Auction that the lot(s) appeared, or at
subsequent private or public sale, or relist the lot(s) in a future auction conducted by Auctioneer.
A defaulting Bidder agrees to pay for the reasonable costs of resale (including a 10% seller’s
commission, if consigned to an auction conducted by Auctioneer). The defaulting Bidder is liable
to pay any difference between his total original invoice for the lot(s), plus any applicable interest,
and the net proceeds for the lot(s) if sold at private sale or the subsequent hammer price of the
lot(s) less the 10% seller’s commissions, if sold at an Auctioneer’s auction.
29. Auctioneer reserves the right to require payment in full in good funds before delivery of the
merchandise.
30. Auctioneer shall have a lien against the merchandise purchased by the buyer to secure payment
of the Auction invoice. Auctioneer is further granted a lien and the right to retain possession of
any other property of the buyer then held by the Auctioneer or its affiliates to secure payment
of any Auction invoice or any other amounts due the Auctioneer or affiliates from the buyer.
With respect to these lien rights, Auctioneer shall have all the rights of a secured creditor
under Article 9 of the Texas Uniform Commercial Code, including but not limited to the right
of sale. In addition, with respect to payment of the Auction invoice(s), the buyer waives any
and all rights of offset he might otherwise have against the Auctioneer and the consignor of
the merchandise included on the invoice. If a Bidder owes Auctioneer or its affiliates on any
account, Auctioneer and its affiliates shall have the right to offset such unpaid account by any
credit balance due Bidder, and it may secure by possessory lien any unpaid amount by any of
the Bidder’s property in their possession.
31. Title shall not pass to the successful Bidder until all invoices are paid in full. It is the
responsibility of the buyer to provide adequate insurance coverage for the items once they
have been delivered to a common carrier or third-party shipper.

Deliver; Shipping; and Handling Charges

arrange pick-up and shipping through third-parties; as to such items Auctioneer shall have
no liability. Failure to pick-up or arrange shipping in a timely fashion (within ten days) shall
subject Lots to storage and moving charges, including a $100 administration fee plus $10 daily
storage for larger items and $5.00 daily for smaller items (storage fee per item) after 35 days. In
the event the Lot is not removed within ninety days, the Lot may be offered for sale to recover
any past due storage or moving fees, including a 10% Seller’s Commission.
36. The laws of various countries regulate the import or export of certain plant and animal
properties, including (but not limited to) items made of (or including) ivory, whalebone,
turtleshell, coral, crocodile, or other wildlife. Transport of such lots may require special
licenses for export, import, or both. Bidder is responsible for: 1) obtaining all information
on such restricted items for both export and import; 2) obtaining all such licenses and/or
permits. Delay or failure to obtain any such license or permit does not relieve the buyer of
timely compliance with standard payment terms. For further information, please contact Ron
