More About this Item
Terms and conditions
The property in the sale will be offered for sale by Toys Trains and Other Old Stuff LLC ("Auctioneer") on behalf of the owners of the property, referred to as the "seller," and will be governed by the terms and conditions set forth herein (the "Agreement"). Auctioneer is the agent of the seller.
Bidder's Registration. All persons who wish to bid in the auction must register and obtain a unique bidder number. To register, you must provide all of the registration information requested, sign the Agreement, and submit the form to the Auctioneer. All bidders must be 18 years of age or older and completely provide the information requested. Auctioneer reserves the right to refuse to register or permit any person to bid at its sole discretion. Bidder may register for the auction by phone, email, or internet. In connection with such registration, Bidder will be required to provide a credit card number (Visa, Master Card, American Express, or Discover) for verification of an intent to bid. Please follow the instructions carefully to make sure that the registration process is complete and accepted. Invoices and correspondence relating to purchases will be sent in according to the information on the bidder's registration.
Registration Confirmation. Bidder will be e-mailed registration approval upon successful completion of the registration process. Registration for internet bidding closes twenty four (24) hours prior to the auction. Bidder should register as early as possible to obtain information about the property and increase the likelihood of being notified of any pertinent changes that take place prior to the auction. The bid number, authorization, and login information given to Bidder upon successfully registering to bid shall only be used by Bidder during the auction to bid on the property. The registration is not transferable or assignable. No one else may register for Bidder or participate on Bidder's behalf.
Payment. Payment in full (including the buyer's premium when applicable) must be paid in the form of cash, checks, money order, all major credit cards (if you have a question about whether a credit card is accepted please call Auctioneer before bidding), prior to the removal/delivery of any property purchased. Checks can take up to fourteen (14) days to clear. Auctioneer reserves the rights to refuse credit card payments on any lot. Bidder shall pay the purchase price, the buyer's premium, shipping and handling charges (if any), plus any and all applicable taxes, unless such taxes are exempted by law (proof of exemption must be provided). Bidder must make payment within three (3) days after notification of the sale. Unclaimed lots will be offered by Auctioneer to the next highest bidder. Failure to fulfill Bidder's payment obligations will affect future bidding privileges.
Buyer's Premium. A buyer's premium will be charged in this sale. The buyer's premium is an advertised percentage of the high bid or flat fee added to the high bid to determine the total contract price to be paid by Bidder. For example, if the winning bid is $100 and there is a ten percent (13%) buyer's premium, the premium will be $13.00, for a total bid of $113.00. This amount does not include any taxes that may also be due. For those attending the live auction in person, there is a 13
% buyer's premium with 3% discount for cash or check. For those participating in the auction via the
internet there is a 18% buyer's premium with a 3% discount for cash or check. The buyer's premium will be paid by all
bidders attending the auction, no exceptions. The buyer's premium does not create any agency relationship between Bidder and Auctioneer. Auctioneer is the agent of the seller only.
Stop Payment/Insufficient Funds. Upon making payment for a lot(s), no stop payment of funds will be honored. Any stop payment order of a check, or giving a check which is returned marked "insufficient funds," shall be deemed by the
parties to be prima facie evidence of fraud existing at the time the transaction was consummated and shall be construed by the parties as intent to defraud.
Acceptance of Terms. A bid placed by any person shall be conclusive proof that he or she acquainted himself or herself with the terms and conditions of sale and agreed to be bound by such terms and conditions prior to placing any bid.
Representations and Warranties. All representations and/or warranties made, if any, are between Bidder and Seller. Auctioneer shall not be held responsible for the correctness of any representations and/or warranties of any kind with respect to the property. Auctioneer shall not be held responsible for any representations and/or genuineness of description of any property. UNLESS OTHERWISE EXPRESSLY NOTED BY AUCTIONEER, ALL SALES ARE

Auctioneer and seller reserve the right to withdraw any property before and during the sale of such property. The seller reserves the right to reject any and all bids for any reason.

After Auctioneer has started calling for bids, the property may be withdrawn if there are no bids within a reasonable period of time. Once a bid has been made for the property, it may not be withdrawn.
Disputes between Bidders. In case of any dispute between bidders, Auctioneer, at his or her sole and complete discretion, may reopen the bidding pursuant to specific terms determined by Auctioneer between the two highest bidders only, until the property is sold.
