Terms & Conditions We advise all bidders to read the Terms and Conditions of the Sale before bidding with Dan Morphy Auctions LLC and/or its affiliates Morphy Firearms LLC, and Morphy Auctions, Las Vegas collectively referred to below as MORPHY’S. Those who bid are bound by those Terms and Conditions of the Sale, as amended by any oral announcement or posted notices, which together form the contract of the sale between the successful bidder (purchaser), MORPHY’S and the seller (consignor) of the lot.

TERMS OF SALE

When bidding on any lot offered by MORPHY’S, the bidder indicates acceptance of the following Terms of Sale. Any participation in the auction binds you to agreement of these terms whether or not you read or understand said terms. The Terms in writing contained herein are subject to change without notice and bidder agrees that the most recently published Terms of Sale as published or amended on the website at the beginning of the auction shall apply.

LIMITED GUARANTEE

TIMING

There will be no options for refunds of any type beyond 35 calendar days from the auction date. Paying late and thus receiving items late will not change the limitation on the dates above for refund consideration. Please also refer to POST SALE RETURN POLICY at end of terms. FIREARMS – These terms do NOT apply to our firearms auctions. To view the terms and conditions for our Firearms Auctions, please go to: www.morphyauctions.com/firearmterms

MORPHY’S makes every effort to accurately describe all items offered in its sales. The descriptions carry a limited guarantee. It is a guarantee to protect you against major discrepancies that would have a major effect upon the value of the item. Under no circumstances do we guarantee against anything less than a major discrepancy that would have less than a major effect upon value. This limited guarantee covers authenticity, major restoration or repair not described, counterfeits, reproductions or major fabrications not disclosed in the description. Examples of what we do not guarantee against, imperfections, slight damages, handling marks, natural imperfections, undisclosed blemishes, finish differences, wood-to-metal fit issues, surface cracks or chips in wood, dings and dents, bore condition and other similar differences that are inherent in the antiques and collectible industry. All items are sold for display purposes. If electrical, mechanical, or other working parts are inoperable, even if working at the time of sale, we are not liable due to the inherent nature of the age of these antiques and items. It is the bidder’s responsibility (present or absentee bidders) to determine by inspection by themselves or a hired professional the exact condition of each item prior to bidding on the item. Should MORPHY’S deny an authenticity issue dispute of the buyer, and the buyer is not satisfied, the buyer may, at his or her own expense, obtain the written opinion of two mutually agreed upon recognized experts in the field of the disputed item. The final decision of those experts will determine any refund consideration. This limited guarantee is only available to the buyer of record. Please also refer to POST SALE RETURN POLICY at end of terms.

GAMING DEVICES - MORPHY’S may hold these items for up to 5 business days to allow state agencies to verify the buyer’s information. All auction participants are urged to check the legality of possession in and/or shipment of gaming devices to their state of residence. Ownership of gaming devices is prohibited in these states: Alabama, Connecticut, Hawaii, Nebraska, South Carolina, and Tennessee. If you become a high bidder on a gaming item, and you are from one of the prohibited states as listed here: • You must pay for your item, • You will not be able to take possession of the item (MORPHY’S cannot ship it to you or allow pickup), • MORPHY’S will consign the item in your name to the next appropriate auction. If you do not pay for the item in full, MORPHY’S will block you from participating in future auctions. Any gaming device purchased at the auction shall be used for the purpose of display or social entertainment within the private home or residence of the buyer, and such devices shall not, in any event or manner, be exposed to the public for the purpose of gambling or be resold in the state of Nevada without a gaming distribution license. Proof of residence/ID is required for purchase of gaming devices.

Except as stated in the limited guarantee above, MORPHY’S will not be held responsible for typographical errors. Neither we nor the consignor, make any guarantees, warranties, or representation, expressed, or implied, in regard to the property or the correctness of the catalog or other description of the authenticity of authorship, physical condition, size, quality, rarity, importance, provenance, exhibition, literature or historic relevance of the property or otherwise. It is the bidder’s responsibility to initiate contact with MORPHY’S in request for additional information regarding the items. Submit all questions regarding upcoming auction items at least 48 hours prior to the date of auction. We will make every effort to answer all submitted questions in a timely manner. We will do our best, but cannot promise that questions submitted within 48 hours of the auction date will be answered prior to the auction. The consigner and we make no representation or warranty as to whether the buyer acquires any reproduction rights in the property. All items will be available for preview approximately one (1) month prior to the auction.

SPORTS COLLECTIBLES • Return Considerations o MORPHY’s is not responsible for a third party grading company agreeing or disagreeing with our assessment, and we cannot issue refunds or credits if cards do not receive a numerical grade or the exact grade that we describe. MORPHY’s strongly recommends that you personally evaluate any items that you are bidding on, and make your own determination about its grade. MORPHY’S offers no guarantee of grade for uncertified items sold and subsequently submitted to a third-party grading service. o Cards 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: Professional Sports Authenticator (PSA), Sportscard Guaranty LLC (SGC), Global Authentics LLC, Beckett Grading Services (BGS), JO Sports, Inc. o MORPHY’S will not accept return of certified items due to possible differences of opinion with respect to the grade offered by any third-party organization, dealer, or service. Grading does not qualify for return evaluation, nor do such complaints constitute a basis to challenge the authenticity of a lot. (continued...)

FIREWORKS – MORPHY’S can only ship Class 1 Division 1.4 and 1.6 Explosives (as described in the following website: http:// environmentalchemistry.com/yogi/hazmat/placards/class1.html) per the 49CFR 173.50 and can only ship these via FedEx. All items not shippable must be picked up by the buyer.


bidder

Terms & Conditions o MORPHY’s shall not be liable for any patent or latent defect or controversy pertaining to or arising from any encapsulated collectible. In any such instance, buyer’s remedy, if any, shall be solely against the service certifying the collectible. o Under extremely limited circumstances related solely to authenticity, such as a highly significant cataloging error, a buyer, who did not bid from the floor, may request MORPHY’S to evaluate voiding a sale. o Lots returned must be completely intact in their original form and undamaged holder, or there will be no credit. Certifications are void and returns are not accepted for any cards removed from their third-party grading holder. o All elements of the MORPHY’S POST-SALE RETURN POLICY apply. There are absolutely no exceptions to this policy. • On any lot presented with a Letter of Authenticity (“LOA”) issued by MORPHY’S o The bidder shall solely rely upon the warranties of the authentication provider issuing the Letter or opinion, or on the warranties of the authentication provider of the bidder’s choice. o Warranty inures only to the original buyer. Buyer may not transfer the rights afforded under the LOA, and it is null and void when Buyer transfers or attempts to transfer the lot. o The LOA warranty is valid from date of the auction in which Buyer was awarded the lot to four (4) years after its purchase. o The LOA warranty is valid as to its attribution to the person or entity described or to the lot’s usage, e.g. game worn. o Claim procedure: o Buyer must contact MORPHY’S within the warranty period, prior to submission of the lot as to his intent to make a claim, receive prior approval, and arrange secure shipment. o Buyer must present with the claim, authoritative written evidence that the lot is not authentic as determined by a known expert in the sports field. o If MORPHY’S concurs that the lot is not as represented, Buyer shall be refunded their purchase price. o If the MORPHY’s denies the claim, the Buyer agrees to the AGREEMENT REGARDING GOVERNING LAW, VENUE, AND LEGAL RIGHTS noted herein. o The LOA does not provide for incidental or consequential damages or other indirect damages. Any lot sold with a certificate of authenticity or other warranty from an entity other than Auctioneer or Morphy’s affiliates is subject to such issuing entity’s rules and such conditions are the sole remedy afforded to buyer. • In the event MORPHY’s cannot deliver the lot, or subsequently it is established that the lot lacks title, provenance, or authenticity, MORPHY’s liability shall be limited to voiding of the sale and refund of purchase price. In no case shall MORPHY’s liability exceed the winning bid on that lot, which bid shall be deemed for all purposes the value of the lot. After one year has elapsed, MORPHY’S maximum liability shall be limited to any buyer’s premium earned on that lot. • Due to changing grading standards over time, differing interpretations, and to possible mishandling of items by subsequent owners, MORPHY’S reserves the right to grade items differently than shown on certificates from any grading service that accompany the items. MORPHY’S 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. • There is a subjectivity to grading, especially the grading of cards. Every effort is made to verify the condition of each lot as it is described. MORPHY’S accepts items for auction after careful scrutiny by not only ourselves, but, when necessary, by other leading authenticators. We cannot guarantee that every card described by us

will in all cases receive exactly the same grade, or even be accepted for grading, from any third-party grading service. Similarly, we cannot guarantee that every card graded by one third-party grading service will in all cases receive exactly the same grade by another third-party grading service. Occasionally a lot description will include the words “we have submitted,” which is intended to be taken literally and give bidders great confidence that MORPHY’S has not “done anything” to the cards to alter or otherwise improve their appearance and ultimate grade. No warranty, whether expressed or implied, is made with respect to any grade, condition, or other adjectival descriptions, which can and do vary, even among experts. • Large Autograph Group Disclaimer: When dealing with a single individual auction lot containing many items, these lots are offered with the explicit understanding that it is possible that there may be a small percentage which are not authentic. When authenticating large lots, such as a collection of 6,000+ signed 3 x 5 cards, or a set of 700+ signed baseball cards, great care has been taken in the authentication process, with all the greater attention focused on any items representing a concentration of value. It is always possible that on rare occasions a secretarial or stamped signature could be missed here or there. Without this disclaimer, as a practical matter, it would not be possible for MORPY’S to offer such lots at all. All bidders bidding on such lots do so with this understanding. • Abbreviation/Definition/Condition Key: PR — Poor, GD — Good, VG — Very Good, EX — Excellent, NM — Near Mint, MT — Mint. NOTE: If an item has a multiple grade such as VG-EX, then that item falls somewhere in between those two conditions. GOODS MADE FROM OR CONTAINING MATERIALS FROM PROTECTED SPECIES - MORPHY’S does not accept any responsibility or liability for the sale of items containing materials from protected species or for any omission in marking or labeling goods as containing materials from protected species. Such material includes, but is not limited to, ivory from elephants and walruses, tortoise shell, crocodile skin, whalebone, rhinoceros horn, some species of coral and certain woods. Restrictions on the importation, exportation, sale, transfer, and/or possession of goods containing materials from protected species derive from international, federal, and state laws and regulations promulgated thereunder. Laws include, but are not limited to, the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Flora and Fauna (CITES), the Endangered Species Act (ESA) and the Marine Mammals Protection Act (MMPA). States currently restricting trade of protected species include, but are not limited to, California, New York and New Jersey. Prospective buyers are on notice that several countries completely prohibit importation of property made, all or in part, of protected materials. Some countries require special permits, such as a CITES permit, from the relevant regulating authority in the countries of exportation and importation as well. Potential buyers intending to import the property into another country should be familiar with the relevant customs laws and regulations prior to bidding on goods containing material from protected species. Regulations may vary as the U.S. generally prohibits importation of articles containing material(s) from species it has designated endangered or threatened if the articles are less than 100 years old, subject to certain exceptions. It shall be the potential buyer’s sole responsibility to research and satisfy the requirements of any laws and regulations that apply to the import and export of property as described in the aforementioned paragraphs. All buyers agree to comply with any and all domestic and international restrictions on the trade of protected species as a (continued...)


bidder

Terms & Conditions condition of the sale. Please note that the ability to obtain an export license or certificate does not ensure the ability to obtain an import license or certificate in another country, and vice versa. It is the buyer’s responsibility to obtain any export or import licenses and/or certificates as well as any other required documentation. MORPHY’S is not able to assist the buyer in attempting to obtain the appropriate licenses and/or certificates, and there is no assurance that an export license or certificate can be obtained. The inability or delay in obtaining permits, licenses or other permissions to import or export goods containing material from protected species will not constitute a basis for rescission or cancellation of the sale of said goods or the delay in payment of purchased items in accordance with these Bidder Terms and Conditions. JEWELRY AND WATCHES • Jewelry Descriptions and Condition Reports: Lots being offered are sold as-is on the day of sale. Condition reports, either written or verbal, are provided as a courtesy only, and are not to be taken as fact or guarantees of condition or quality of the lots. All information provided is the opinion of the specialist at MORPHY’S, including but not limited to weights, grades, color, and clarity. All gemstones and diamonds are measured and graded in their setting unless stated otherwise. All weights and grades are approximate. Buyers wishing to have a grading or gemological report from an independent, internationally recognized laboratory, such as the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) or the American Gemological Laboratories (AGL), may request one at their own expense or hire an independent adviser of their choosing. • Watch Descriptions and Condition Reports: The physical characteristics, timing accuracy or functionality of timepieces cannot be guaranteed, and all items are sold as-is. o Any condition statement reflects the condition of the watch on the date of the report. Condition can change from the time of the report to the day of sale. o Photographs are for identification purposes only. Buyers may not use them as precise indications of size or condition. o The origin or authenticity of all components cannot be guaranteed. o Watches with waterproof or water-resistant cases – MORPHY’S may open cases to develop descriptions, and cannot guarantee that any watch is waterproof or water-resistant at the time of purchase. MORPHY’S recommends that the buyer have a professional watchmaker evaluate the watch at buyer’s expense. o Buyers must be aware that watches may need general service, change of battery, or further repair work for which the buyer is solely responsible. o Dials - All watches have the possibility that after their original date of manufacture they received reconditioning or replacement of dials or elements of the dial such as but not limited to standard or luminescent hour markers, hands, script, date or measurement indices, lacquer, and finish. Buyer is solely responsible for determining and understanding such condition issues. • The lack of a condition report does not imply that the item or lot is free from imperfections, defects or wear and tear of the aging process. This includes but is not limited to: deficient stones, needed repair or defects. • It is common and generally accepted in the jewelry industry that some diamonds and most gemstones have been enhanced with various treatments to improve their overall appearance. o These treatments include but are not limited to: heating, dying, oiling, laser drilling, HTHP, wax, bleaching, irradiation, resin or polymer impregnation and various other techniques. o Unless stated in the title, it is assumed that one or more

treatments have been performed to the stones. While many treatments are considered permanent, this cannot be guaranteed. o Please note that many treatments cannot be determined without sophisticated laboratory testing. Due to the various laboratories and developing scientific methods for testing, not all reports or certificates will have the same results for treatment type, extent of treatment and stability of treatment. o MORPHY’S makes no representations or warranties, express or implied, as to whether natural stones have been treated or enhanced, whether specifically referenced or not. • Laboratory reports may accompany some lots o If a lot is accompanied by certificates or reports from internationally recognized and accepted gemological laboratories, it will be noted in the description. o Copies will be available upon request, with the original going to the successful bidder. o The reports cannot be guaranteed and are provided for informational purposes only. Results on reports may differ from laboratory to laboratory. o MORPHY’S accepts no responsibility for the accuracy, terms or information contained in such certificates or reports.

BIDDING RIGHTS & RESPONSIBILITIES

The auctioneer will determine the highest bidder. The auctioneer alone has the right to reopen the bidding of an item if deemed necessary due to a dispute. If there is a tie bid between the floor and Internet or absentee bid, the floor bid takes precedence. MORPHY’S and its representatives reserve the right to remove those attendees who impede preview and/or the auction. Title to all merchandise shall pass to the highest bidder at the fall of the auctioneer’s hammer. The buyer will then assume all risk and full responsibility of the lot purchased once ownership has changed. We recommend that you arrange insurance for your items immediately upon becoming the highest bidder. MORPHY’S is not responsible for any errors in bids, omissions of bids, or failure to execute bids and shall have no liability to any bidder for any technical or other failure associated with the internet, absentee bidding, or telephone bidding. • ABSENTEE BIDDING - MORPHY’S will accept absentee bids if pre-authorized by mail, fax or through www.morphyauctions. com online. Absentee bidders must use the absentee bid form and clearly mark the lot number, title and maximum bid amount. Absentee bidding forms may be accessed online at www. morphyauctions.com. If there are two (2) identical bids placed on the same item, priority will be given to the first bid received. All bids must be left in increments as explained on our bid form. If a bid is “out of increment,” the auctioneer has the right to round the bid up to the next correct increment. Bidders may preview, register and place bids online through our website, www. morphyauctions.com. Absentee and online bids placed through www.morphyauctions.com will be auto charged to the credit card entered 48 hours after the end of the sale. If you wish to pay by another method please contact us within 48 hours after the sale. Seller(s) agree to allow the Auctioneer to accept and execute absentee bids in a competitive manner for potential buyers and under the MORPHY’S absentee bidding terms and conditions. During the live sale, the auctioneer will execute your absentee bid (continued...)


bidder

Terms & Conditions competitively up to the maximum amount you have indicated. • ONLINE BIDDING - Online bidding through www.morphyauctions. com, Live Auctioneers, Invaluable, Proxibid, or other bidding platforms may be available; all Terms and Conditions still apply. A surcharge will be added for third party online platforms. Refer to your bidding platform of choice for the final buyer’s premium. If there is a tie bid between the internet bidding venues and the floor, the floor bid takes precedence. If a credit card has been provided to one of the online bidding platforms, MORPHY’S reserves the right to use and charge the credit card if the winning bidder has not paid via another method by the 7 day term in Payment Terms below. Due to our fast paced auctions and bids coming from floor bidders, phone bidders, internet bidders and absentee bids, the auctioneer has the final word on all item(s) sold. You (the bidder) assume the risk of winning an item online and not having the item actually sell to you. This is due to the final call of the auctioneer and the operator not being able to re-open that lot. Online bidders are responsible for accidental bidding as if they bid normally. • BID RESULTS – MORPHY’S will only contact successful bidders. Please allow 24-48 hours post auction to receive your official invoice from MORPHY’S. The invoice will include item, hammer price, premium, packing and handling, shipping, insurance, and any other charges that apply. Please hold phone inquiries regarding bid success until after receiving your invoice. For verifications, MORPHY’S cannot provide winning bid information until the second business day after the auction. MORPHY’S will not provide bidder information to any outside sources. • TELEPHONE BIDDING - Requests for phone lines must be received at least three (3) days prior to the auction date. MORPHY’S cannot guarantee phone lines but will make every attempt to accommodate those who wish to participate through that method. Phone lines are provided on a first come first served basis. Please visit www.morphyauctions.com or call 717-335-3435 to request a call from our representatives during the live auction.

BID INCREMENTS

Bid increments listed are a general guideline. Actual increments are at the auctioneer’s discretion. If a lot does not receive a bid of 50% of the low estimate, the lot will be passed by the auctioneer. $0 - $500…................$25 $500 - $1,000….........$50 $1,000 - $2,000…......$100 $2,000 - $5,000…......$250 $5,000 - $10,000....…$500 $10,000 +…............... Auctioneer’s discretion

RESERVES

The majority of our items are unreserved, but occasionally items may carry a moderate reserve. Please note that when a lot carries a reserve, the reserve is usually somewhere below our low estimate. In the case of a reserved item, the seller has authorized the auctioneer to bid on their behalf until the reserve price is reached.

BUYER’S PREMIUM

A 20% buyer’s premium will be added to all successful bids and is payable by the buyer as part of the total purchase cost. A 3% merchant fee is also automatically applied to all invoices but can be discounted upon payment by cash, check, money order or wire transfer that is received within 7 days from the receipt of the invoice. If the type of payment is split, invoice will reflect the 3% charge for merchant fees on the entire invoice. In addition, a surcharge will be added for certain third party online bidding platforms the bidder

utilizes. Refer to your bidding platform of choice for the final buyer’s premium.

SALES TAX

Lots delivered to you, or your representative are subject to all applicable state and local taxes, unless appropriate permits are on file with MORPHY’S. Bidder agrees to pay MORPHY’S the actual amount of tax due in the event that sales tax is not properly collected due to: 1) an expired, inaccurate, or 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 MORPHY’S five days prior to Auction, or tax must be paid; only if such form or certificate is received by MORPHY’S 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.

Terms & Conditions In the few situations where a successful bidder does not remit payment when due, MORPHY’S will proceed with the legal steps necessary to protect its interests and will block the bidder from future auction participation.

PACKING/SHIPPING

• It is the bidder’s responsibility to take shipping, handling, and insurance costs into consideration when bidding on items. • BIDDERS PRESENT AND TAKING ITEMS AFTER AUCTION – Since item liability transfers upon a successful bid, items paid for must be packed, transported and/or removed by the buyer at his/her own risk after the close of the sale. We recommend that you arrange insurance for your items immediately upon becoming the highest bidder. If any employee or agent of MORPHY’S shall pack or transport the merchandise, it is fully at the risk and responsibility and expense of the buyer. MORPHY’S shall not be held liable for any loss or damage that may be caused by the said agent or employee. • ITEMS NOT PICKED UP THE DAY OF THE SALE – Packaging, shipping, and insurance on all items that MORPHY’S agrees to ship to locations that can accept shipments will be made available as an added courtesy and at an additional cost. We recommend that you arrange insurance for your items immediately upon becoming the highest bidder. All applicable charges will be applied to the invoice. Shipping will be based on actual costs via FedEx, USPS, or other carriers required based upon the contents of the shipment. Packaging and insurance will vary in cost depending on the items on each invoice. All packages will be shipped with insurance. Standard items packed internally by MORPHY’s will ship approximately seven to fourteen (7-14) business days after payment is received. Oversize and breakable items, which MORPHY’s will indicate on the invoice, will ship based upon the buyer’s arrangement with a 3rd party shipper. MORPHY’s cannot combine standard item shipments with oversize and breakable item shipments. Again, if any employee or agent of MORPHY’S shall pack or transport the merchandise, it is fully at the risk and responsibility and expense of the buyer. MORPHY’S shall not be held liable for any loss or damage that may be caused by the said agent or employee. • SHIPPING TERMS - MORPHY’S will ship items to the buyer at the listed address via FedEx or other carriers, FOB Denver, Pennsylvania or FOB other auction locations. Any risk of loss or damage to the item(s) during transit via FedEx, or any other carrier, in excess of the insurance provided by or purchased from MORPHY’S, is at the risk of the buyer. Any additional insurance coverage should be purchased by the buyer through the carrier. Buyer releases MORPHY’s from any and all claims for loss or damage to any item during transit and agrees to pay all costs of defense, including attorney’s fees, for any claims brought against MORPHY’S for loss or damage occurring during transit. • INSURANCE - Shipping insurance is automatically added, which you can decline by contacting us and providing a signed waiver of insurance form. Insurance for all 3rd party shipments must be arranged through that carrier. Insurance provided or purchased through MORPHY’s applies only to shipments to the United States and Canada. Buyers must purchase their own insurance for shipments to other countries. • INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENTS – MORPHY’S has the capability to ship to international bidders. By law, MORPHY’S cannot, and will not, declare lesser values for any international purchases and all shipments will include the invoice with purchase totals including the buyer’s premium and shipping cost. All international bidders

are responsible for knowing their country’s laws on importing items and for paying all customs and duties on the items. • 3RD PARTY SHIPPING OVERSIZE ITEMS – Buyers will need to either pick up the items personally or arrange a 3rd party shipping service for oversize items. As a general guideline, the following will indicate which packages apply, as they are of a certain weight, length, or dimensional size. • Dimensional size is length (the longest measurement) + (height x 2) + (width x 2). For example a 36” x 36” x 12” package = 36 + (36 x2) + (12 x 2) = 132” • USA home shipments must be <70 lbs. and <108” length and <165” dimensional size • USA business shipments must be <150 lbs. and <108” length and <165” dimensional size • International shipments must be <150 lbs. and <108” length and <130” dimensional size • There may be certain shipments that meet these requirements that will still require 3rd party shipping, and we will communicate the reason in those cases. • 3RD PARTY SHIPPING OF BREAKABLE, DELICATE, FRAGILE ITEMS - MORPHY’S reserves the right to choose items and orders that it will pack, ship, and/or insure directly using our shipping department. Those items that MORPHY’S will not ship will require that the buyer either pick up the items personally or arrange a 3rd party shipping service. Examples of items that may apply after determination by our shipping department include but are not limited to: items with neon of any type (working or non-working), all glass display cases of any size; coin-operated, arcade and vending items with fragile parts and/or glass; signs with parts or protrusions beyond the main body of the sign, oversized vases (guideline – larger than fit in a 20” x 20” x 40” box), high value lamps and glass of all sizes, high value artwork including but not limited to paintings, statuary, sculpture, figurines, dioramas, and other intricate items; and items subject to impact by moisture and known handling issues in the supply chain. Under no circumstances will MORPHY’S be responsible for shipping damage to picture frames of any kind. For any buyers who wish to arrange for their own shipping, MORPHY’S must be notified at least seven (7) days prior to arrival of the shipping company name, arrival date and time. Pickup must be scheduled to begin and end within our normal business hours (9am – 4pm weekdays).

A Guide

to grading c ondition 10 – A grade that is rarely or never given. In order for a sign to obtain a “10.0” grade, the piece would have to have just rolled out of the original firing kiln with no age or wear whatsoever.

9.9 to 9.5 - A grade of near perfect condition. In order for pieces to grade in this category, they would most likely have to be found New Old Stock. These pieces may have only the slightest amount of edge wear, or small flaw or, “Flea Bite” style chip near a grommet or mounting hole. This piece should also have more than 95 percent of the original color & gloss intact. The piece in this category may have a factory filled flaw or light surface scratch that is not distracting to the appeal of the piece. 9.4 to 9.0 – A grade of just below perfect condition, with a slight amount of edge wear or light chipping along the outer edge, grommets, or mounting holes only. The field of the sign is free of any chips, but may allow for one “Flea Bite” chip in a non distracting area. This piece should also have more than 90 percent of original color and gloss is intact. The piece may also allow only the slightest amount of surface wear in the gloss coat, such as a light scratch or light amount of discoloration that is not distracting to the appeal of the piece. 8.9 to 8.5 – A grade below perfect condition, with minimal chipping or areas of wear around the outer edge or light chips around mounting holes or grommets that are not over distracting. The field on a piece in this grade should be very clean, but may also allow for one to three small, “Flea Bite” chips, or one non distracting dime size chip on the sign, but not in the field. At least 85 percent or more of the original color & gloss should also be intact, and allow for a minimal amount of scratching or discoloration in small areas. 8.4 to 8.0 – A grade below perfect condition, that allows for more wear & chipping around the outer edge or near the grommet or mounting holes. This sign may also allow for one to two dime size chips on the piece, including the field but not overly distracting. A piece in this grade may also have quarter to half dollar size area of discoloration in the color & gloss, and allow for some light surface scratches in the gloss, as long as its not in the focal point of a piece. This piece should have 80 percent or more of the original color & gloss intact, and not have any distracting areas of the focal point.

7.9 to 7.5 – A grade that falls below near perfect condition. The pieces in this category will have wear & chipping in multiple areas of the sign. The piece will still have an eye appeal to it, but have areas of distracting wear. There will be two to four dime to quarter size chips present in the field as well as wear along the outer edge, mounting holes or grommets. This piece should have 75 percent or more of the original color & gloss intact, but will allow for more areas of discoloration, such as loss of gloss or surface scratches. 7.4 to 7.0 – A grade that falls below near perfect condition. The pieces in this category will have wear & chipping in multiple areas of the sign. This piece will still have appeal to it, but have heavier areas of distracting wear. There will be three to five dime to quarter size chips present in the field as well as distracting wear along the outer edge, and wear & chipping at the mounting holes or grommets. This piece should still retain 70 percent or more of the original color & gloss intact, but will allow for heavier areas of discoloration, such as heavier areas of gloss loss or surface scratches. 6.9 to 6.0 – A grade that falls below collector grade condition. These pieces will have large areas of wear & chipping throughout the sign. The sign may also have creased areas that have been flattened out. The sign will have larger areas of wear, but still a visible graphic or image. The piece should still retain 60 percent of color & gloss intact, but will allow for large areas of distracting wear and surface scratching. Although the sign has heavy areas of wear, it should still have a decorator type appeal, with a cool weathered look. 5.9 to 5.0 – A grade that falls below collector grade condition. This pieces will have heavy areas of wear, large chips, and may have missing pieces. These pieces should still retain 50 percent of the original image left, but will allow for large areas of distracting wear and surface scratches. Although signs in this category show significant wear, it should still have a decorator type appeal with a cool weathered look. 4.9 and Below – A grade that falls below collector or decorator type condition. These pieces will have large areas of wear, will have heavy damage, and may be missing pieces. These piece have little to nothing left that appeal to the eye of a collector or decorator, and have little to no value. Although they may be heavily damaged or worn, these are great candidates for restoration.

LOT - 1033

1033 - 5¢ WATLING “THE STAR” MUSICAL UPRIGHT SLOT MACHINE FOR C.H. MILES. 28” x 65” x 19”. Very little is known about this Watling upright slot. It is marked “The Star” on the five-way coin head, has two original decals on the front that identify C.H. Miles, and the glass front to the coin head is etched C.H. Miles. From a little research, one can find a C.H. Miles who lived in and around Chicago at the turn of the century, and it is also noted that he owned several saloons or bars in several locations over his lifetime, passing away in Las Vegas sometime after 1940. Quite possibly an operators proprietary special order from Watling Manufacturing. Unlike most other musical upright slots, the original music box is located directly below the handle and not at the bottom of the slot, framed with a gorgeous original casting.

1074 - 1¢ CHAMPION WALTER BAKER AND CO’S SWEET CHOCOLATE TABLETS VENDING MACHINE. 32 - 1/2” x 9 - 3/4” x 9 - 1/4”. This is another version of a Champion “L” shaped vending machine featuring Walter Baker Chocolates and We-chu-it Pepsin gum. The coin mechanism on this machine is marked champion and the front porcelain panel sign is marked “F.M.D. & Co. 52 State st., Chicago IL.” Condition is all original. The wood case machine has some oxidation and lifting to the red paint. The green side panels have some small chips on the edges and a few slight chips in the outside edges of the field with one nickel sized chip at the upper mounting hole on the right side. The front panel has a nice graphic of the iconic Walter Baker lady, with only minor chipping to the outside edges. The internal components are intact and operative along with original operating instructions on the inside front panel. This front panel is a rare variation to any Walter Baker vending machine, however this machine appears to be a marriage of an Autosales Chiclets machine with green side panels and a Walter baker front door in white and blue porcelain. Since Autosales made the machine for many different gum and chocolate companies, it would not be unusual for an operator to put a different door on another machine. Working and with keys.

1079 - 5¢ ENCORE AUTOMATIC BANJO. 25 - 1/2” x 78” x 25”. The Encore Automatic Banjo is today one of the most interesting automatic musical instruments ever produced. A real banjo, automatically operated by tiny mechanical “fingers” and playing in a very realistic manner, makes the Encore Banjo a fascinating piece of American musical ingenuity. The history of the Auto-Manufacturing Co. which was founded roughly in 1896, with the first instruments showing up in 1897, is a sketchy history at best. In the end, the majority of the Encores were produced in New York City in the factory located at 227 Bleecker St. and company headquarters for the American Automatic Company at 53 Broadway. There were several other Encore distributors in the eastern states, which brings us to this particular Encore Banjo, clearly marked on the back for the American Auto-Banjo Company of New Jersey. What is known about the Encore is that the Deansboro Musical Museum which operated in upstate New York for over 50 years, acquired the Encore in the 1940’s. It resided in the museum until 1997 when it was deaccessioned privately before the museum was sold at auction in 1998. It was then acquired by a private collector where it has been in his collection until this auction. The serial number to this Encore is H5. There are several documents available of lists of Encores on location by serial number, but nothing close to this has surfaced. It was believed that this Encore sat in the lobby of the offices at 53 Broadway, and has a stamp in the back wood panel that states “SHOP NO. H5 FOR USE IN THE STA”. This Encore was restored mechanically by the museum, but retains the original finish and is equipped with an original Encore banjo. It needs tuning, but plays well and comes with a couple of rolls. The quartered oak cabinet is solid, has some signs of use and wear after 120 years, however, it has a great aged look and beautiful patina. Has keys. This is not a standard shippable item and will require 3rd party shipping or pickup arrangements to be made. (Excellent). 40,000 - 70,000

1080 - MILLS NOVELTY COMPANY DELUXE VIOLANO-VIRTUOSO. 47” x 34” x 68 - 3/4”. In 1904, a young man named Henry K. Sandell joined the Mills Novelty Company. At the age of just 21, young Sandell had already distinguished himself as an inventor, having patented several devices in the electrical and mechanical fields. His first project for the Mills Co. was the perfection of an automatic violin-playing machine, and in 1905 or 06, Mills Novelty Company launched the “Automatic Virtuoso” and the Mills Violano-Virtuoso was born. From that day on into the 1930’s, the Violano-Virtuoso went through many design changes and enhancements including a ship’s version where the piano could be played manually, and several other versions where accompanying instruments could be added to the mainstay violin with piano. It was in the early 1920’s when Mills developed the Deluxe Violano-Virtuoso where a second violin was added, not to accompany the first violin, but to play simultaneously, thus increasing the volume and expression of the violin while playing. This example of the Deluxe Violano-Virtuoso is housed in a beautifully finished North American quartered oak cabinet. The 18 month old restoration has accounted for every detail, including a magnificent restoration of the two violins and a complete overall rebuilding of the electrical and pneumatic systems, all culminating in a sound so emotionally rich to hear and so hypnotically-mesmerizing to watch its no wonder that the Violano-Virtuoso was designated as one of the greatest scientific inventions of the age by the U.S Government. This example is a flawlessly playing musical instrument with a meticulous restoration, with an absolutely gorgeous look and sound. The “Double Violano”, as the machine is referred by collectors, uses the same piano roll as the single. Restored, with keys and 4 rolls. This is not a standard shippable item and will require 3rd party shipping or pickup arrangements to be made. (Excellent). 50,000 - 80,000

In a beautiful custom mahogany cabinet, with bright nickel accents, and the original celluloid dealers tag for Herman A. Ockel, Providence RI. Herman Ockel was a fine watch and clock maker/dealer and was the local agent for Jacot & Sons Music Boxes from New York who were the U.S agents for Mermod Freres, prolific maker of cylinder music boxes and the maker of the Stella mechanism. Mermod Freres sold the mechanisms to dealers who installed them into cabinets built by others. Though the cabinet maker for this Stella is unknown, it is truly a work of art. Solid mahogany construction with hand carved accents and carved crown molding, and a one piece solid marquee with a Harris & Harrington clock installed. The bottom of the cabinet has storage for additional discs, accessed through a side door. However, the true measurement of the quality of the cabinet construction comes from the tone and sound when it plays. Stella’s duplex comb, unlike other music box makers double comb, vibrates the note simultaneously on both combs as opposed to independently. Mounted in this highest of quality cabinet, the tone and sound of this Stella Orchestral Upright Music Box is simply superb. Condition is excellent and was truly cared for over the last 120 years. Some loss or crazing to finish, but nothing distracting from the overall beauty of this machine. Comes with crank and keys and additional discs.

A stunning example of a Regina Corona style 35 bow front 15.5 changer with 2 upgrade options, an art glass front and an 8-day Seth Thomas clock marquee.

The clock crest marquee contains the original Seth Thomas porcelain dial clock which has a thin 1” hairline crack extending from the center key hole to the number 6. The following is a excerpt from the original Regina marketing material: “The style no. 35 may be equipped with a high-grade, eight day clock. When so equipped, the clock is connected with the mechanism so that a different tune is played automatically every hour or half hour.”. This clock is connected to the mechanism as described in the literature and will play the tune on the hour.

1159 - EXTREMELY RARE REGINA STYLE 3 WITH COIN SLOT MUSICAL AUTOMATION WITH SETH THOMAS HALL CLOCK. 23” x 113” x 15 - 3/4”. Among Regina made clocks, the Style 3 was the most popular between 1895 and 1905. Towering over 9 ft. tall and available in a variety of cabinets, both plain and ornate, this example is housed in an elaborately detailed oak cabinet. Equipped with a standard Regina 15.5” duplex comb movement in a Seth Thomas tall clock, this Regina musical clock would automatically play upon striking the hour, or by pressing a button on the side at anytime. However, this clock has a very rare feature, a never seen coin slot, where the music could be played by depositing a penny at any time. The Bowers Encyclopedia of Automatic Musical Instruments refers to only one known example of the Regina Style 3 Musical clock with a coin slot that had been in a hotel lobby for years. The origins of this clock are unknown as it was purchased from an estate in 1989. The clock is in original finish, and is not restored. The music box plays well and it operates on a coin however the free-play button and automatic feature require a dry cell battery or voltage converter to operate. The quartered oak cabinet is in very good condition with a small repair to the center top finial on the clock. It splits into three sections, and contains storage for extra discs. Several discs come with the clock. Clearly a once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire one of Regina’s earliest of musical accomplishments. This is not a standard shippable item and will require 3rd party shipping or pickup arrangements to be made. (Very Good - Excellent). 30,000 - 60,000

1160 - J.P. SEEBURG PIANO COMPANY STYLE “H” ORCHESTRION. 72” x 85” x 34”. The J.P. Seeburg Piano company of Chicago was one of the top names in the automatic piano and orchestrion business in America, and in the 1920’s they were the leader and had the lion’s share of the business. Beginning about 1907 with the introduction of their 65-note pianos, Seeburg quickly advanced to the introduction of the much larger and ornate Style “G” and Style “H” orchestrions beginning about 1911 and producing them as late as 1926. The Seeburg Style “H” is simply an impressive example of musical ingenuity expressed mechanically, but with undeniable grace and beauty represented thru stunning art glass panels, quartered north american oak construction, gorgeous carved figures “Beauty” and “Strength”, and a harmonic sound produced through the melodic coordination of the piano, base and snare drums, a rank of flute and violin pipes, xylophone, cymbal, castanets, wood block, and triangle. This instrument is truly an outstanding representation of Seeburg’s genius in orchestrion manufacture and presents a once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire one of the best examples

It was rescued from the original building in the 1960’s and stored in a warehouse in Chicago until it was acquired in 1998, and restored in 2011 where it has been on display in a climate controlled home until being offered at Morphy’s Auction this year. From the beautiful rich tiger-striped oak cabinet, to the remarkable original art-glass panels, original carved Beauty and Strength figures, and a ready-to-play restoration, this Seeburg Style “H” is one of the best examples offered to the public in recent history. Comes complete with 60 “H” rolls, some original and some re-cuts, the original bass drum head with signatures and autographs from the patrons of the Crystal Saloon beautifully framed in matching quartered oak, and an original postcard from the Crystal Saloon in Virginia City, Nevada showing the orchestrion on location.

1161 - VERY RARE 5¢ MULTI-PHONOGRAPH FROM THE MULTI-PHONOGRAPH COMPANY GRAND RAPIDS MICH. 32 - 1/2” x 85 - 1/2” x 20”. c. 1915. A mechanical marvel of its time, this 24-play cylinder phonograph was manufactured by the Multi-Phonograph Company of Grand Rapids Mich and sold by C.C.Shigley & S.H.Paxton proprietors. Not many of these multi-phonographs exist today and even fewer are working and playing as engineered. This example from the Multi-Phonograph Company is an early version playing 2-minute records as opposed to the 4-minute records of other known examples. A complete restoration was completed less than a year ago, and this multi-phonograph plays perfectly and is memorizing to watch operate. Unlike the much more upscale “lyre” Multiphone that comes to market occasionally, this more casual multi-phonograph version has a very different look with quartered oak cabinet, front beveled glass door and beveled glass side panels, and exposed top horn. You could see this on location at the local bar, honkey-tonk or corner cafe in it’s day. This example retains an original decal for C.C.Shigley and S.H.Paxton, the proprietors who originally sold the phonograph. An excellent example of this very rare phonograph. Operational and with keys. This is not a standard shippable item and will require 3rd party shipping or pickup arrangements to be made. (Excellent). 50,000 - 100,000

1162 - 1¢ MANHATTAN PHONOGRAPH COMPANY DOUBLE EDISON COIN-OP PHONOGRAPH. 25 - 1/3” x 60” x 22”. It is unlikely that you have ever seen this coin-op Edison phonograph before. The Manhattan Phonograph Company of NY made the “Manhattan”, as it is referred by collectors, using the mechanism of an early Edison suitcase standard.

This is the rarest of coin-operated phonographs and clearly a museum piece in any phonograph collection. Condition is original, other than the headphones. The porcelain signs are original with some slight chipping at the mounting holes, but retaining good shine and color. There is a cast door to the original cash box that is off its hinges, but present. Old lock and hasp on the coin door.

1164 - AMERICAN SALES CO. COIN OPERATED RECORD PHONOGRAPH. 23” x 24” x 48”. This is an extremely rare coin operated phonograph from the “American Sales Company” which was located at 932 Wrightwood Ave. in Chicago IL. This coin operated phonograph is unique in that it plays 4 different 78 RPM records as opposed to the Edison style disc records that other coin operated phonographs play. Very little is known about the American Sales Company, no other phonographs like this one have surfaced and the only other reference found to date of the company are tokens bearing the name of the company. Housed in a console style oak cabinet, the phonograph operates by a center mounted tone arm that will rotate to each record individually to be played. One coin plays one record and rotating clockwise to each record with each coin played, all which can be seen through the glass top. Under the center located tone arm is a brass tag also identifying the company and address, patent number from 1916, 1923, and 1926, the words “Daily Concert Phone” and a serial number 307. Also comes with 4 records of varying makes. The phonograph is not restored, though it has cycled through its playing operation, it needs to be rewired, and the upper back door is a plywood replacement which could easily be replaced with matching quartered oak. This never before seen coin operated phonograph is an amazing survivor and worthy of being added to any advanced phonograph collection. Original condition and needing some mechanical assistance to operate. This is not a standard shippable item and will require 3rd party shipping or pickup arrangements to be made.

1261 - VERY RARE 1¢ CAST-IRON POKER MACHINE OF UNKNOWN MANUFACTURE. 12” x 12 - 1/2” x 23 - 1/2”. c. 1890. This is an all cast-iron and very early poker machine whose manufacture is unknown. Similar in appearance to a counter success by Mills Novelty, this machine sits on a large cast iron base as opposed to wood or a swivel base, has five reels with cards, and plays in the same manor as a Mills, but has no distinguishing marks or manufacturer’s identity. The machine is heavy cast-iron, with no evidence it was ever plated, and quite possibly could be a prototype. The 1¢ operation dates it early, and the large cast iron base serves as the coin drawer for the machine, and it’s doubtful this heavy machine could be lifted with the over sized coin drawer full of pennies. The cards are aged and original and it has keys and plays well. A remarkable survivor and unlikely to be a duplicate in anyone’s collection. (Good - Very Good). 8,000 - 12,000

1394 - RARE 1¢ CAILLE MONEY-BACK SCALE FROM THE YALE OPERATING CO. KANSAS CITY. 20 - 1/4” x 76” x 32”. This is a very rare penny money back gambling scale from Caille, circa 1903. Predating the more often seen Caille Washington Money Back scale, this model was manufactured at 206 Randolph street in Detroit MI. as noted on the dial. The Caille Company was located at 206 Randolph street in 1903 and then in 1904 was moved for the last time to 1300 Second St. where it remained. This scale also has a metal tag on the front below the pin field which states “Property of the Yale Operating Company 720 Main Kansas City, Missouri”, where it was located. The Yale Amusement Company resided at 720 main beginning in 1904 and later in 1914 they changed the name to the Yale Arcade Theater. This Caille gambling scale has such a great look along with the Caille name to boot. The glass around the scale face is glue chipped just as the upright floor machines of that period. The scale glass has big maroon letters which state “Money Back Scale” and the Caille company initials are found in the lower corners. This big machine almost looks like an old grandfather clock, standing just over six feet tall with its curved wood top. The scale face shows charts for men and women but then goes into more detail with the boys and girls. The big cast-iron plate above the pin field reads “Watch where your money goes” and the center chute in the pin field is labeled “Money back”. The pin field is located right in the center of the machine and when you drop your penny in the scale it will fall down and bounce through this area. If you get lucky and the penny hits the center money back chute, a set of balls inside will ding as a penny falls into the payout cup below. This would be the gambling feature of the machine as you are trying to get your penny back and your weight for free. This scale was featured on the front of the Coin Operated Collectors Association news magazine and at the time of that feature was the only known example to surface. This is a beautiful example of an early Caille scale, not found in any of the catalogs, in unrestored perfect patina, and with known history and provenance. The oak case is in original varnish, with some oxidation to the cast pieces and the foot plate. The glue-chip face is near mint, and the paper dial in excellent condition. For all you Caille collectors out there, this is the scale for your collection. Working and with keys. This is not a standard shippable item and will require 3rd party shipping or pickup arrangements to be made. (Very Good - Excellent). 20,000 - 30,000

1474 - CIGAR STORE INDIAN ATTRIBUTED TO THOMAS BROOKS. 77” x 20” x 21”. Thomas V. Brooks (1828-1895) was a leading American wood carver; he was well known for carving ships and shop figures, particularly his Indian statutes featuring V-shaped headdresses. He opened his business in New York city in 1848 and it is believed that his style was developed in the 1850’s and 1860’s. This cigar store Indian is very much in the style of Brooks and displays the identifiable “V” shaped headdress. This carving shows fine detail attributed to the cigar store Indians of the day, with two clusters of cigars and full headdress with bear-paw mantle. Holding a flint-lock rifle, this cigar store Indian displays the superb artistic skill from the hand of the carver. The Indian Chief is in restored condition showing repair to the headdress and new perfectly hued paint.

1475 - CIGAR STORE INDIAN MAIDEN ATTRIBUTED TO SAMUEL ROBB. 77” x 21” x 18”. Samuel A. Robb was born in Brooklyn in 1851 into a family of Scottish shipcarvers and carpenters. Some biographies give the date of 1864 as the start of his work as a professional wood carver, beginning with his five-year apprenticeship as a teenager. This Indian maiden is very much in the style of Samuel Robb and has been attributed to him by the consignor. The very subtle color pallet befits the fine lines and subtle detail of the carving, and she has an overall impressive look, being life-sized with presence and holding the identifiable tobacco leaves. There are several stress and age cracks in the carving and the base appears to have been reconstructed at one time. There is some old paint present mixed with some areas of touch up, but expertly done. One iron wheel showing oxidation, but a great carving with a fantastic look. This is not a standard shippable item and will require 3rd party shipping or pickup arrangements to be made. (Good - Very Good). 10,000 - 20,000

The certificate represented the return of 24 Coca-Cola bottles in their case. It also could well have been a printer’s copy, since the date September 1, 1924 is stamped on the back.
