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.

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.
