Descriptions are guaranteed to be accurate as regards authenticity, age, condition, and measurements to within one-fourth inch, as represented in this auction. When describing damage, we may choose not to list exterior wear or manufacturer’s flaws that, in our opinion, do not significantly detract visually or monetarily from the value of the item. It is recommended that you or a representative examine each item in person before bidding. We are pleased to provide verbal condition reports for our bidders. The Auctioneers reserve the right to make corrections and provide additional information at any time during the sale. 3. Preview: Items may be viewed by appointment at our offices. 4.

You may telephone us at any time (weekdays 9 AM - 5 PM) during the auction, prior to the closing of the sale, to check the status of your bids, to find the current bidding level, to open a bid, or to raise a bid on an auction lot. (These actions are also available as part of our internet bidding system). Your bid, written, oral or electronic, grants Norman C. Heckler & Company the authority to protect you up to the amount of your stated bid. Your bid will not be removed once executed. Norman C. Heckler & Company will not disclose bids pledged by others; only the current bidding level of a lot will be available. The highest bidder shall prevail. It is the sole right of the auctioneer to settle any dispute between bidders and to regulate the bidding procedure. The auctioneer reserves the right to refuse any bid believed not to have been made in good faith. Each lot in the sale has an estimate based on current value as an intended guide to bidding. MINIMUM BID IS ONE-HALF THE LOW ESTIMATE Up to $250.00...............increments of $10.00 $1000.00 - $2500.00.........increments of $100.00

Only online bids will be accepted after 10 PM Eastern (7 PM Pacific) for auction lots that are still open. TIMED CLOSING: This auction will close at 10:00 P.M. Eastern on the last day of the sale; however, if there are successful bids on individual items within the last 10 minutes (9:50 - 10:00 P.M.), then the auction will continue for those individual items.

Additional charges may apply for large or unusually shaped items, and/or certain postal zones which USPS attaches a surcharge. Some items may require transport through a fine arts carrier which can be arranged by the buyer or with Norman C. Heckler & Company. We encourage you to plan for a pickup of your items at our offices. 8. Refunds: Refunds will be given at the discretion of the Auctioneers. Items purchased must be examined and a request for refund made immediately upon receipt of the items. The Auctioneers will be the sole judge in consideration of refunds. It is the Auctioneers sincere intention to consider any reasonable request for a refund pertaining to a major oversight in the description of an object (ie: large epoxy repairs, large chips, extensive cracks, etc.) and not nuances of color, minute flaws, or normal antique “fair wear and tear”. 9. Administration: If at any time during the auction period an act or circumstance takes place which impedes or affects the normal auction process, the auction can be postponed or terminated at the auctioneer’s discretion. 10.

Charlie had amassed thousands of bottles after changing his collecting habits from firearms to glass objects. He was in touch with collectors, dealers, and pickers from all over the United States to continue to acquire what would become well over 3,000 high quality antique American and European bottles, flasks, and glass objects. Those objects were sold in a six day marathon sale in September and November of 1975. Following the last day of the sale, in which the objects brought over a million dollars, a party was held at the auction company for Mr. Gardner. Korbel champagne was served at this party. The bottle represented here is one of those bottles and was signed at that time by Charles Gardner, Nina Gardner, and Robert Skinner, auctioneer. $100-200 208. “O’Neal’s / Com.d Syrup Of / Wild Cherry, Hoarhound / & Liverwort / Phil.a” Medicine Bottle, America, 1840-1860.
