3045 Ghiyath al-Din Tughluq, Gold Tanka, Mulk-i-Tilang, AH 725, titles, rev titles and single circular border, 11.03g (G&G D303). Struck on a compact flan, better than usual for this mint, extremely fine and rare, a lovely specimen. £700-900 Telangana, currently a part of Andhra Pradesh, but soon to become a separate state, was ruled by the Kakatiyas at the start of the 13th Century AD from their capital, Warangal. In 1305, the army of ‘Ala al-Din Muhammad Khalji, under Malik Kafur, conducted a successful campaign to Warangal and returned with masses of treasure “too heavy for a thousand camels to bear”. During the reign of the next Dehli Sultan, Qutb al-Din Mubarak, an army under Khusru Khan again invaded Telangana and returned to Dehli with another large amount of booty. During this period, Telangana remained in the hands of the Kakatiyas but in the reign of Ghiyath al-Din Tughluq, Warangal was captured, possibly along with other parts of Telangana. The name of the capital was changed to Sultanpur and it must have remained as part of the Dehli Sultanate until at least the year AH 732 (AD 1331/2). Gold and silver Tankas in the name of Ghiyath al-Din Tughluq were struck with the mintname Mulk-i Tilang in years 724 and 725. These have a different legend from those struck at other mints during his reign. In the reign of his successor, Muhammad bin Tughluq, there is an initial Tanka issue with mint name Mulk-i Tilang, and then various issues of gold coin with the mint name Sultanpur.


3046 Muhammad b. Tughluq (AH 725-752 / 1325-1351 AD), Gold Tanka, Qutbabad, AH 726 in the name of his father, titles, rev titles and single circular border, 11.03g (G&G D321). Good extremely fine, rare. £600-800 Muhammad b. Tughluq left his son Jauna to rule the Sultanate while he invaded Bengal and gave instructions for him to occupy himself by building a wooden palace in his honour. However, on his return, its roof fell in fatally injuring the Sultan. It is suspected that this was no accident, that Jauna had tampered with the building and murdered his father in this elaborate manner in order to gain the throne.

3047 Muhammad b. Tughluq, Gold Tanka, in the name of his father, Hadrat Dehli, AH 729, titles in single square border, rev titles and single circular border, with the enigmatic number 421, 10.92g (G&G D324). Edge marks but with a complete border legend, nearly extremely fine, rare and apparently without a silver equivalent. £1500-1800

3048

3049

3048 Muhammad b. Tughluq, Gold Dinar, al-wathiq type, Hadrat Dehli, AH 726, 12.86g (G&G D331). Test cut to edge, good very fine. £400-500 Muhammad bin Tughluq was very much an innovator when it came to the currency of his sultanate. One innovation was the Gold Dinar of 112-Rati which was issued for a few years only. G&G lists years AH 725-727 for this type.

3049 Muhammad b. Tughluq, Gold Dinar, al-wathiq type, Hadrat Dehli, AH 727, 12.79g (G&G D331). Nearly extremely fine. £500-700

Tughluq, Gold Dinar, small module, fi zaman/Shahada type, Hadrat Deogir, AH 727, 12.83g (G&G D335). Minor edge test, the date in figures, very fine and rare. £500-700


3053

3054

3055

3053 Muhammad b. Tughluq, Gold Dinar, small module, fi zaman/Shahada type, Hadrat Deogir, AH 728, 12.84g (G&G D335). Very fine, the date in figures, rare. £450-500 3054 Muhammad b. Tughluq, Gold Tanka, al-Mujahid type, Dar al-Islam, AH 727, 10.97g (G&G D341). Testmarks and other marks, otherwise good very fine, rare. £450-500 3055 Muhammad b.

3059

3058 Muhammad b. Tughluq, Gold ‘Adli, fi zaman/Shahada type, Hadrat Daulatabad, AH 730, 9.15g (G&G D351). Extremely fine, rare. £500-700 The innovative Gold ‘Adli of 80-Rati was issued for only a few years, AH 728-732, and only from the mints of Daulatabad (AH 728, AH 730) and Sultanpur (AH 729-732). The coins of Daulatabad were struck with two mint epithets: “Dar al-Mulk” (AH 728, AH 730) and “Hadrat” reported only for the year AH 730. Daulatabad was the renamed Deogir suggesting that Muhammad b. Tughluq had already moved his capital there by this point.

3059 Muhammad b. Tughluq, Gold ‘Adli, fi zaman/Shahada type, Dar al-Mulk Sultanpur, AH 729, 9.21g (G&G D352). Some surface accretion, very fine, rare. £600-800 Sultanpur is Warangal from where Dehli Sultans issued coins intermittently between AH 725 and AH 732, mostly in gold.

3060

3060 Muhammad b. Tughluq, Gold ‘Adli, fi zaman/Shahada type, Dar al-Mulk Sultanpur, AH 730, 9.20g (G&G D352). Extremely fine, rare. £600-800 Very difficult to find in such good condition.

3061 Muhammad b. Tughluq, Gold Tanka, Dehli, AH 741, struck in the name of the Abbasid Caliph al-Mustakfi, 11.01g (G&G D427). Very fine, rare. £400-500 Keen for his authority to be legitimised by the ruling Abbasid Caliphs, Muhammad b. Tughluq struck coins in their name. Nevertheless news of a caliph’s death did not always travel quickly enough and in the case of al-Mustakfi, Muhammad continued minting coins in his name for four years after his death.


3062

3063

3062 Muhammad b. Tughluq, Gold Tanka, no mint, AH [74]5, struck in the name of the Abbasid Caliph alHakim II, 11.02g (G&G D440). Slightly crimped, very fine. £300-350 3063 Muhammad b. Tughluq, Gold Tanka, no mint, undated, cinquefoil type, struck in the name of the Abbasid Caliph al-Hakim II, 11.06g (cf G&G D442). Some weakness, otherwise about extremely fine. £350-450

3064 Muhammad b. Tughluq, Gold Tanka, cinquefoil within circle type, no mint, undated, struck in the name of the Abbasid Caliph al-Hakim II, 11.06g (G&G D443).

3067 Mahmud b. Muhammad Tughluq (AH 752 / 1351 AD), Gold Tanka, no mint, AH 752, 11.01g (G&G D455). Extremely fine, scarce. £1000-1200 On the death of Muhammad b. Tughluq the armies in Sind proclaimed Firuz the new Sultan. However in Dehli another pretender was raised to the throne, Mahmud. In the short space of time until Firuz returned to Dehli, coins were struck in the name of the pretender, Mahmud b. Muhammad Tughluq.

3076 Firuz Shah Zafar (AH 791 / 1389 AD), Gold Tanka, undated (AH 791), 10.98g (G&G D545).

Extremely fine, clear mint and date, very rare. £1500-1800 After a period of schism and separatism Ilyas succeeded in reuniting the Bengal Sultanate in 753h and in 756h, after a treaty with Dehli, Bengal was formally recognised as an independent kingdom.

3080 Shams al-Din Ilyas, Gold Tanka, Hadrat Jalal Sunargaon, AH 755, legend in double square border, rev legend within circle, 10.92g (G&G B148, this coin). Extremely fine with a full margin, extremely rare being possibly the only known specimen. £2000-2500


3081 Sikandar b. Ilyas (AH 758-792 / 1357-1389 AD), Gold Tanka, mint off flan (Mu’azzamabad type), undated, 10.82g (G&G B178). Extremely fine, rare in gold. £1000-1200

3086 Ghiyath al-Din Barbak (AH 893 / 1487-1488 AD), Gold Tanka, Khazana, AH 893, triangle and pellet border type, 10.43g (G&G B460). Two shroff marks, very fine and really extremely rare. £4000-5000 All coins of the usurper Ghiyath al-Din Barbak are extremely rare. This gold type, all the more so, was only known to Goron & Goenka by reputation at the time of publication. Ghiyath al-Din Barbak is the first of the so-called Habshi dynasty of Bengal. The name “Habshi” refers to Abyssinia (Ethiopia). Already in the 14th Century, a number of Abyssinian slaves are known to have served in Bengal under Shams al-Din Ilyas and his descendents. Some of them rose to positions of importance. The historian, Ferishta, reports that, in the time of Rukn al-Din Barbak (1459-1474 AD), some 8000 Abyssinian slaves were recruited for the Bengal army and to fill various key posts in the state. It is probable that the Abyssinians were intended to serve as a counterweight to overambitious local nobles. If so, the policy backfired as over the next twenty years the Abyssinians gained in power and influence, coming to occupy most of the important positions at court, while also forming the Sultan’s palace guard. Jalal al-Din Fath Shah (1481-1486 AD) sought to take steps to curb their power as a result of which, according to the traditional sources, the Abyssinians joined with the chief eunuch of the palace, Barbak Shahzada, to murder the Sultan, whereupon Barbak Shahzada took the throne with the title Ghiyath al-Din Barbak Shah, only to be deposed and killed soon afterwards!

3087 Shams al-Din Muzaffar (AH 896-899 / 1490-1493 AD), Gold Dinar, Khazana, AH 896, legends within scalloped border, 10.53g (G&G B670). Full margin, good very fine, extremely rare. £2000-2500 Shams al-Din Muzaffar was the last of the Habshi rulers of Bengal.

3088 Ala al-Din Husain (AH 899-925 / 1493-1519 AD), Gold Tanka, Khazana, AH 899, khalima type, obv basic titles, 10.60g (G&G B700, this coin). One shroff mark, very fine, very rare. £1500-1800

3089 Ala al-Din Husain, Gold Dinar, Victory at Kamru and Kamta, first type, Khazana, AH 900, rev legend in segmented octofoil border, 10.42g (G&G B715). Possibly ex-mount, fine, extremely rare. £1500-1800 There are four types of victory coins issued by this ruler. The first two types commemorate victories over Kamru and Kamta. The third type adds Jajnagar to the list, and the fourth type adds Orissa. While silver Tankas of the fourth type are very common, and those of the first type scarce, those of the second and third type are very rare or extremely rare as are coins of any of the four types in gold.


3090 Ala al-Din Husain, Gold Dinar, Victory at Kamru, fourth type Fathabad, AH 899, legends in double circle, 10.63g (G&G B727). Extremely fine and extremely rare. £1500-1800

3091 Nasir al-Din Nusrat (AH 925-938 / 1519-1531 AD), Gold Tanka, Arsah, AH 929(?), 10.62g (G&G B790). Compact flan, extremely fine and rare. £2000-2500 Arsah meaning “district” was probably a mint operating in East Bengal.

3092 Nasir al-Din Nusrat, Gold Tanka, Fathabad, AH 925, 10.71g (G&G B -; cf G&G B 791). Small compact flan with full legend, extremely fine and extremely rare. £1500-2000

3093 Ghiyath al-Din Mahmud (AH 939-945 / 1532-1538 AD), Gold Tanka, Chandrabad, undated, 10.78g (G&G B890). Extremely fine and extremely rare, possibly the only example in gold. £2000-3000 It is not certain where Chandrabad was, though it may have been Chandpur in Murshidabad District. A rare mint, it is only known for coins of Ghiyath al-din Mahmud and ‘Ala’ al-Din Husain.


Sultans of Madura

3094 Jalal al-Din Ahsan Shah (AH 734-740 / 1333/4-1339 AD), Gold Pagoda or ⅓-Tanka, no mint, AH 735, 3.66g (G&G MD1, this coin). Extremely fine, very rare. £5000-7000 The illustration in Goron & Goenka is enlarged and unclear but careful examination suggests it is the present specimen. The rebel Ahsan claimed independence in 734h but his short-lived breakaway Sultanate of Madura would probably never have been established had it not been for an epidemic which halted Muhammad bin Tughluq’s armies as they marched south to quell the revolt. Forced to turn back, Muhammad left Ahsan in situ. The last Madura coin is dated 779h, the year in which scholars believe the rising Vijayanagar Kingdom overwhelmed it.

3095 Jalal al-Din Ahsan Shah, Gold Tanka, Hadrat Madura, AH 735, 11.02g (Bhandare JONS 186, p.26, Winter 2006). Superb extremely fine and very rare. £8000-10,000 The obverse title is afzal-al yasin khalifath rabb al-‘alamein jalal al-dunya wa al-din, which bestows on Ahsan the lofty position of “lord of both worlds”, a title “usually reserved for Allah, the supreme God” (Bhandare JONS 186). The reverse legend identifies Ahsan as abu al-dhu ‘afa wa al-masakin “father of the weak and the destitute”. The rendition of the mint as Hadrat (venerable) Madura, previously a Tamil temple city, gives an intriguing perspective on the changing social and religious status of the area during this short period of independence before the rising Vijayanagar Kingdom overwhelmed it.

3096 Ghiyath al-Din Muhammad Damghan (AH 740/41-745 / 1340-1344 AD), Gold Tanka, Daulatabad, AH 741, 11.63g (G&G MD12). Flan flaw at edge and in centre where there is a hole, perhaps ex-mount, otherwise about extremely fine and extremely rare. £5000-7000 Damghan’s gold is extremely rare. The mint name here is puzzling and presumably refers to Madura itself rather than the Daulatabad of the Deccan. Although the famous traveller, Ibn Batutah, was in Madura around this time for while, very little is know about the history of this short-lived Sultanate.


3097 Ghiyath al-Din Muhammad Damghan, Gold ½-Dinar(?), no mint, AH 744, 5.94h (G&G MD13, this coin). Extremely fine and extremely rare, possibly the only specimen known. £6000-8000

Bahmanis of the Deccan

3098 Muhammad Shah I (AH 760-777 / 1359-1375 AD), Gold Tanka, AH 775, 10.99g (G&G BH26). Date partially visible, good extremely fine, rare. £1500-1800 A beautifully engraved series.

3099 ‘Ala al-Din Mujahid Shah (AH 777-779 / 1375-1378 AD), Gold Tanka, Hadrat Ahsanabad, AH 779, obv legend in square border, 10.93g (G&G BH46, this coin). Very fine, extremely rare. £6000-8000 All Mujahid’s coins are rare. The titles here translate as the supreme sultan, the shadow of god in the world and he was an educated man of considerable size and strength. Nevertheless after a short reign he was murdered in his tent returning from a campaign against the Vijayanagar kingdom.

3110 Mahmud Shah (AH 887-924 / 1482-1518 AD), Gold Tanka, Hadrat Muhammadabad, AH 888, 11.05g (G&G BH120). Legible date, part of mint visible, marks to edge, for this reason very fine. £2000-2500 Coins of Mahmud Shah rarely have a legible date.

Clear date, nearly extremely fine. £1500-2000 Many of the gold coins of Jaunpur are characterised by their attractive tughra-style obverse inscriptions, a style which was imitated in Bengal by Sultan Jalal al-Din Muhammad and some of his successors.

3121 Nasir al-Din Mahmud Shah (AH 844-861 / 1440-1456 AD), Gold Tanka, no mint, AH 851, obv toughra, 11.55g (G&G J10, date not listed). Lightly scuffed, clear date, good very fine. £1200-1500

Sultans of Kashmir

3158 Muhammad Shah (fourth or fifth reign, AH 923-943 / 1517-1537 AD), Gold Tanka, no mint, no date, 11.15g (G&G K41, this coin). Fine, very rare. £2000-2500 All sultanate gold coins of Kashmir are at least very rare.


3159 Sikandar Shah (AH 923 / 1517 AD), Gold Tanka, no mint, no date, 11.25g (G&G K70, this coin). About very fine for type, very rare. £3000-5000 These coins used to be attributed to Sikandar Shah of Kashmir who reigned c.1493-1513 but die analysis has clearly shown that they were struck a century later around the second decade of the 16th Century. This suggests two possibilities: that they were struck around 1521 in the name of Fath Shah’s son Sikandar, who was proclaimed king by one of the factions; or that they were struck around 1517 by Muhammad Shah in the name of Sikandar Lodi of Dehli in gratitude for his support in helping him to regain the throne. The latter option is the more likely. See Goran & Goenka, p.474 notes.

3260 Nawabs of Bengal, Gold Mohur, in the name of Shah ‘Alam II, AH 1176, Year 4, Monghyr, 11.02g (see Stevens, The Coins of the Bengal Presidency, p.244). About extremely fine, slight toning and a couple of test marks on edge, of the highest rarity. £6000-8000 In his book The Coins of the Bengal Presidency, Dr Paul Stevens relates that the Nawab of Bengal, Mir Kasim Ali Khan, moved his capital from Murshidabad to Monghyr in 1761. However, a dispute with the British led to the latter sending an army to Monghyr where they captured the fort in October 1763. Extremely rare Mohurs and Rupees are known with mintname Monghyr and dated AH 1176 Year 4. No other coins are known from this mint. AH 1176 finished on 11 July 1763, ie a few months before the British occupation. Hence these coins must have been issued by the Nawab.

Very fine, two shroff marks to the reverse, extremely rare. £4000-6000 bought Spink, 1976 By weight the coin is a Mohur. Haidar Ali used the Mohur weight standard and at the start of his reign Tipu Sultan must have done the same. This lighter weight standard is noted by Henderson (p.15) and illustrated on Zeno (71406). The coin is year 4. Ordinarily we would have expected Tipu to have moved on completely to the Pagoda weight system by this stage which makes the present coin a particularly late Mohur. Mohurs of Tipu Sultan are extremely rare.

THE LINDÉN COLLECTION Åke Lindén (1927-2013)

Åke Lindén, who passed away on the 13th May 2013 at the age of 86, was a man of international stature having served for a number of years and eventually becoming Assistant General Director of GATT (General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade), now the World Trade Organisation. He was born in Stockholm but grew up in Karlskoga where his father was a director at A B Bofors. His father travelled widely all over the world and brought back different coins from each country he visited. This is what first inspired Åke’s passion for coin collecting. After taking degrees in law and economics, he joined the Swedish Foreign Office and served in Paris, Rio and Frankfurt before moving to the GATT Secretariat in Geneva where he became the leading expert in the international trade systems. Being a somewhat reserved, almost shy and certainly modest person, Åke was immediately popular with people from all walks of life. His regular driver’s appreciation of the man was such that he described him as “the epitome of a true gentleman”. After taking his pension in the mid-1990s when GATT became WTO, he became a political consultant and was employed by both the EU and the United Nations as well as individual countries including Malaysia, Kazakhstan, Jordan and Sri Lanka. In his limited spare time Åke enjoyed spending time with his younger brother and sister and their families, as well as a circle of close friends. He also gave legal advice and financial support to various “good works” and charities freely, which was typical of the man. It is a wonder that Åke ever found the time to devote to his coin collecting hobby, but time he did find, or make as the case may be, and what is more he went about it in the most methodical and single-minded fashion. One could say that he became a more accomplished numismatist than many fulltime professionals. His numismatic interests were not merely wide ranging, he actually set about collecting every type coin since 1850, as per the Yeoman catalogue, from every country in the world. Being the true collector that he was, Åke would consider any coin that was missing from his collection in whichever condition available. However, when it came to the very rarest items, he did not hesitate to acquire them in top condition at whatever the price. To this end, Åke even went so far as to purchase graded coins in plastic “slab” holders, which was anathema to him because he could not enjoy handling them in the same way he was used to with coins that were “free”. Such coins included, for example, the Korean 20-Won and 5-Won of 1906 and 1908 as well as numerous Japanese and American gold coins. His German States gold and silver collection, which is about as complete as one would wish for, bears testament to the methodical way that he went about putting together his collection. This auction includes several coins from the Lindén collection and these are all marked as such in the lot description footnote.

Information for Bidders Admission Admission to our Public Auction is free; by registering for the auction you are agreeing to abide by the conditions set out in our printed catalogue and on our website.

Examination of Lots You are encouraged to view the lots before sale and attend the auction in person. Viewing of the lots may be done by appointment in the week prior to the auction at our offices or on an official viewing day. The catalogue is printed with estimates alongside each lot. This is intended as a price guide for interested bidders. It is our opinion of the value of the lot but bidders should rely on their own judgement of the value. Bidders should be prepared for prices to rise if there is competition for the lot. All lots can achieve hammer prices both above and below the published pre-sale estimate. Usually each lot is reserved at 80% of the lower estimate and bids below this are unlikely to be accepted.

Bidding at the Auction Bidding may be carried out by you in person or by a representative of your choice (please ask us for further information). Please collect your bidding number from the registration table at the auction room. You should arrive in plenty of time for the lots you are interested in. A time guide is printed at the front of the catalogue and approximately 200 lots are sold per hour. However bidders are reminded that this is a guide only and Baldwin's will not be responsible if you miss your lot. If you do not have an account with us, we may ask you for a reference from a bank or other credit referee (eg another dealer or auction house) and you may be asked to leave a deposit before bidding.

Absentee Commission Bids If you are unable to attend the Auction personally, you may place a commission bid through us and we will try and purchase the lot for you at the lowest price possible. You must complete a Commission Bid Form found in this catalogue which must include your highest bid for each lot. All commission bids must be submitted in writing either by

post, email or fax to Baldwin's offices to arrive not later than 24 hours before the auction. We do not accept bids left by telephone. Please include your street address in emails. Commission bids received less than 24 hours before the auction will only be accepted at our discretion and we cannot guarantee that the commission bid will be placed. We do not charge for these services and therefore we will not be liable for errors in executing commission bids. We offer a state-of-the-art Live Bidding system over the internet via www.the-saleroom.com/baldwins. This service is free and requires you only to register your details, together with a valid credit card for verification. You may either bid live, making use of the audio and video, or leave commission bids on the website which will be automatically executed on your behalf. These commission bids cannot be seen by the auctioneer. Invoices will be mailed to you after the auction in the usual way

Purchase Price The price paid by the bidder is the hammer price plus 20% buyer's premium (plus VAT). Lots exported outside of the European Union may not be subject to VAT. Please ask for further information from us where this may apply to you. You are encouraged to arrange your own collection/shipment. Alternatively lots will be sent by Royal Mail, recorded and insured delivery. Postage and insurance will be charged as additional costs.

Payment An invoice will be supplied on request during and after the Auction showing the total amount due to us. You must pay in full before the lot(s) can be delivered to you.

Guarantee We are a member of the International Association of Professional Numismatists and therefore, as a buyer, you will benefit from a guarantee for all lots against forgeries as required by IAPN’s rules of membership. Please see the Conditions of Sale for details of the terms of our guarantee

CONDITIONS OF SALE 1.

APPLICATION AND CONTRACTUAL RELATIONSHIP

1.1. By making a bid, a Bidder acknowledges his acceptance of these Conditions and will be bound by them. 1.2. Baldwin's acts as agent for the Seller for the sale of a Lot to the Buyer unless Baldwin's is the owner of the Lot. As such, Baldwin’s is not responsible for any default by the Seller or the Buyer. 1.3. The contract for the sale of a Lot is between the Seller and the Buyer and is subject to these Conditions and the Seller's Conditions. 2.

PRE-SALE AND DESCRIPTIONS

2.1. Statements made by us in a Catalogue, during the course of the Auction or elsewhere, describing a Lot including its authorship, origin, age, size, condition, genuineness, authenticity or value are intended as a guide for interested Bidders. These are statements of opinion only and should not be relied on as statements of fact. Illustrations of the Lots are for general identification only. 2.2. Lots by their nature are usually aged and varied in condition. The absence of any description of a defect, damage, modification or restoration in any Catalogue does not imply that there are none. 2.3. Coins are graded to accepted UK standards to the best ability of our specialists. You acknowledge that the grading of coins is subjective and may vary from specialist to specialist, as the process is by nature an art and not a science. For this reason, we do not automatically accept and are not bound by the opinions of third party coin grading services for any purposes including before and after the sale of a Lot. 2.4. If you are interested in a Lot, we strongly recommend that you view it in person before the Auction and form your own opinion of the description of the Lot.

4.4. Subject to Condition 4.2, the contract for the sale of the Lot is concluded on the fall of the hammer. 4.5.

All Lots are offered for sale subject to any Reserve.

4.6.

You cannot cancel your purchase of a Lot once the hammer has fallen.

5.

PAYMENT

5.1. The Purchase Price payable by a Buyer is the Hammer Price plus a Buyer’s Premium of 20% of the Hammer Price. VAT is payable in addition unless the Lot is exempt or zero-rated. 5.2. The symbol ‘G’ appearing next to a lot in this catalogue denotes the item is ‘Investment Gold’ and, therefore, a VAT-registered trader can submit a claim to H M Revenue and Customs to recover the VAT element of the Buyers’ Premium 5.3. Any lot marked with a dagger (†) is subject to import VAT at 5%, this will be added to the hammer price and is payable by the buyer if resident in the EU. If the lot is being exported outside the EU, this import VAT can be waived or refunded on proof of export. 5.4. The Buyer of a Lot shall pay the Purchase Price in full before the Lot can be delivered to the Buyer. 5.5. Except where Condition 5.4 applies, any part of the Purchase Price outstanding after the Auction shall be payable by you within 14 days of the date of the auction, the due date. 5.6. The Purchase Price is payable by you in full. You are not entitled to set-off any amounts that you claim are due from us or anyone else or make any other deductions.

2.5. We reserve the right to change any aspect of the published description of a Lot prior to the auction. Any change may be published on our website, displayed at the auction, announced by the auctioneer prior to the sale and/or communicated in any other manner.

5.7. Unless we have agreed in writing otherwise, you shall act on your own account as principal in respect of the sale and therefore if you accept a commission from a third party to bid on their behalf, you do so at your own risk and will remain personally liable (jointly with your principal) to us for the Purchase Price in accordance with these Conditions.

2.6.

All copyright in Catalogues including images belongs to Baldwin's.

AUCTION SALE

4.1. Before the auction, all potential Bidders must notify their name and address to the auctioneer and if required provide proof of identity to our satisfaction and bank or other credit references. 4.2. The highest Bidder for each Lot shall be the Buyer. If there is a dispute, the auctioneer shall have absolute discretion to determine the dispute including re-offering the disputed Lot for sale. 4.3.

In this case, you will be liable in full and will indemnify us for all losses, costs and expenses (including legal costs) incurred as a result, including the costs of the resale and the amount (if any) by which the Hammer Price obtained on the resale is less than the Hammer Price obtained on the original sale of the Lot to the Buyer. 6.
