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.

CONDITION OF ITEMS

MORPHY’S makes every effort to accurately describe all items offered in its sales, however all items for sale are “as is,” and it is the bidder’s responsibility (present or absentee bidders) to determine the exact condition of each item. 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. No statement anywhere whether oral or written, shall be deemed such a guarantee, warranty or representation. Prospective bidders should inspect the property before bidding to determine its condition, size and whether or not it has been restored. 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. However, we cannot guarantee 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 purchaser acquires any reproduction rights in the property. Returns will not be accepted under any circumstances. All items will be available for preview approximately one (1) month prior to the auction. All items are sold for display purpose. 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. 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. However, we cannot guarantee that questions submitted within 48 hours of the auction date will be answered prior to the auction. AUTOMOBILES – These terms do NOT apply to our automobile auctions. To view the terms and conditions for our Automobile Auctions, please go to: www.morphyauctions.com/autoterms FIREARMS – All firearms transfers will be in strict accordance with all International, Federal, State and local laws. Be sure to check your country, state and local laws before bidding. If you are unable to import, purchase or own a firearm according to your residency laws, do not bid on these items. If you bid and find out later you cannot legally own/accept delivery, the bid is still a valid contract that the buyer must pay. • Condition of Firearms and Related Items o Condition is always a subjective evaluation. Final responsibility rests with the buyer to assess the condition of items.

It is not possible to adequately describe in text or photos an antique or collectible item, and many modern items, that have seen use and show wear. MORPHY’S’s goal at all times is to be as fair and honest in our catalog descriptions. MORPHY’S recommends that you personally inspect all items, or enlist a trusted professional to do so for you. o MORPHY’S will only consider a refund when there is a major description discrepancy or authenticity issue that has a major effect on value. Examples that apply are major restoration or repair not described, counterfeits, reproductions or major fabrications. o MORPHY’S will not refund sales with buyers that have disputes regarding a firearm’s bore condition. o If the discrepancy is less than major, MORPHY’S will not under any circumstance provide a refund. This means that if you are purchasing an item and find undisclosed blemishes, finish differences, wood-to-metal fits issues, surface cracks or chips in wood, dings and dents, and other similar differences, it will not qualify for refund consideration. o Should the buyer have a major dispute regarding an item, the buyer must notify MORPHY’S within three (3) days of receipt of the item to receive consideration. MORPHY’S in its sole discretion may provide refunds for major description discrepancies or authenticity issues. 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. o There will be no options for refunds of any type beyond 35 calendar days from the auction date. o Paying late and thus receiving items late will not change the limitation on the dates above for refund consideration. MORPHY’S ships items in order of payment. o These terms are available only to the original buyer of record. All sales are final. • Firearms Catalog Designations o A: antique o M: modern (post 1898), Federal Firearms License (FFL) requirements apply o C: curio & relic eligible o N: National Firearms Act / Title II Gun Control Act of 1968 (Class III SOT) requirements apply o ^:Modern firearm imported from Canada, will have an unassuming marking that contains at least “BV LYNDEN WA” and any of the following not already marked on the firearm: serial number, caliber, country of manufacture, manufacturer name and model. Marking letters are 1/16” tall and just over 0 3” deep. Buyers must consider this in their bidding. Marking will not appear on antique firearms imported from Canada. • Checkout and pickup at our location: o The same person to whom the bidder number is registered must be the person to pick up the firearm(s) at the conclusion of the sale – Federal Law disallows anyone else from accepting the transfer. o Modern firearms sales to non-licensed bidders who are picking up guns at our location will require the completion of a form 4473 background check.

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 purchasers 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 purchasers 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 purchaser’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 purchasers agree to comply with any and all domestic and international restrictions on the trade of protected species as a 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 purchaser’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 purchaser 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.

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.

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.

PACKING/SHIPPING

• It is the bidder’s responsibility to take shipping and handlings & 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 purchaser at his/ her own risk after the close of the sale.

The skipper’s collection Dr. Ralph “Skip” Rusco was born in Chicago in 1937. He earned the name “Skipper” from a family friend before he was born. His mother and father (Hamilton and Dorothy Rusco) were avid sailors of beautiful Lake Michigan and were often asked “When will the Skipper be born?” He was known as “The Skipper” to everyone he met. Skip’s younger years in Chicago consisted of working paper routes, serving as an elevator operator, working in the rail yards, and sailing Lake Michigan with his parents and their friends. He attended Olivet College in Bourbonnais IL and was accepted to medical school at the Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine. Upon graduation, he practiced medicine and served as a General Physician in Osteopathic Medicine with a family practice for over 20 years in Oak Lawn, Illinois. In 1987, he moved his practice to Venice, FL where he continued to practice family medicine for almost 30 more years. His collection of knives began in the early 1970s shortly after his father-in-law had given him a knife as a gift. Ironically, it was the exact same knife that Skip’s father owned. From that point on, Skip took a very serious interest in the collection of unique and high-quality knives. Arguably, Skip may have one of the largest collections of knives consisting of manufacturer names such as Marbles, R.H. Ruana, and Cooper. He also purchased one of the first hand-made knives of Roderick “Caribou” Chappel. The stories and the care given to every individual knife would be too arduous to try and list. With over 40 years of being a subject matter expert and his meticulous attention to detail, Skip Rusco’s collection of vintage, one-of-a-kind knives is unparalleled. His additional hobbies included annual fishing trips to Canada, visiting Las Vegas, wood carving, sailing/boating, watching old westerns, “Puttsing around in the garage” as his wife would say, telling tall-tales, and spending time with his family. Skip has four children (Lynn, Lori, Scott, and Jason) and eleven grandchildren ranging in ages from 39yrs old to 12yrs old. His sister, Lois Lewis, resides in Sarasota Florida. He will always be remembered as “Skip”, “Grandpa”….or “Dad”.
