Virtually nonexistent signed stereo first pressing of With the Beatles 1. Beatles. Ultra rare UK stereo first pressing first cover With the Beatles album signed in the upper white area in blue ballpoint, “Ringo Starr,” “George Harrison,” “Paul McCartney,” and “John Lennon.”The signatures were acquired at the Liverpool Empire on December 7, 1963, during a backstage meeting with a male fan after he was a guest of the group during the day and attended their performance on Juke Box Jury and then the concert arranged by the fan club. In fine condition, with a bit of light irregular ink adhesion to end of Starr’s signature and beginning of Harrison’s, a light album impression to front cover and a few minor edge creases. The record is included. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from noted Beatles expert Frank Caiazzo. The date this album was signed for the lucky fan was an extremely busy day for the band. They first taped a special edition of the BBC show Juke Box Jury being the star judges on the program and then gave a special Northern area fan club convention live concert. Both events were taped and screened by the BBC later that evening having been recorded in the afternoon at the Liverpool Empire. Following the television tapings they made their way down to the nearby Odeon Cinema to give two more live performances later in the day as part of the groups UK 1963 winter tour, performing a 10-song set including, ‘Roll Over Beethoven,’ ‘All My Loving,’ and ‘She Loves You.’ Released on November 22, 1963, With the Beatles went straight to the #1 position on the album chart, knocking their first album Please Please Me out of the top spot, where it remained the best-selling album for 21 weeks and charted for 40 weeks. This stereo version of the album is extremely rare on its own. Identified as a first pressing by the “Jobete” publishing credit for the song ‘Money’, as well as the incorrect spelling of the song title ‘You Really Gotta [sic, Got A] Hold On Me,’ this particular version of the album is seldom-seen and highly prized by music collectors. Roughly only 15–20 band-signed copies of any version of With the Beatles are known to exist, with this being only the second very rare stereo first pressing cover that we have been able to find. One of the utmost of Beatles and rock and roll rarities! Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.…(MB $5000)

Early photo presented to the director of their 1964 TV special 2. Beatles. Extraordinary vintage semi-glossy 9.75 x 7 photo of the Beatles on stage circa 1963, signed and inscribed in fountain pen, “John [L]ennon, To Rita, Love from the Beatles,” “Paul McCartney,” “George Harrison,” and “Ringo Starr.” In very good condition, with three trimmed edges (the “L” in Lennon’s signature is trimmed off), a few unobtrusive creases, spot of surface loss at George’s knee and upper right corner, and all signatures but Ringo’s a few shades light. The Beatles presented the photo to television director Rita Gillespie, who directed the music show Boy Meet Girls from 1959 to 1960, as well as the Beatles’ 1964 TV special, Around the Beatles. Also includes an original color glossy 4.5 x 4.5 photo of Gillespie on a TV set, surrounded by the Fab Four dressed in court jester costumes. An especially impressive piece, given the early date and entertainment-world association. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.…(MB $1000)

1963 program signed while ‘Please, Please Me’ sat at #1 3. Beatles. Vintage 7 x 9.25 tour program

photo from the band’s 1963 tour with Chris Montez and Tommy Roe, signed in blue ballpoint, “Ringo Starr xxx,” “John Lennon xx,” “Lots of love, Paul McCartney xxxx,” and “George Harrison.” Double-matted and framed to an overall size of 23.25 x 17.75. Moderate creasing, not affecting legibility of signatures, central horizontal and vertical folds, and a couple of small separations, otherwise very good condition. All the signatures are quite large and bold. Accompanied by a copy of the fully intact original program and a 1999 letter of authenticity from noted Beatles expert Frank Caiazzo who indicates the signatures were acquired circa March 1963. This tour was originally to be headlined by Chris Montez and Tommy Roe, however after the first night of the tour on March 9, 1963, the Beatles became the headliners. This was due to ‘Please Please Me’ spending its third week at number one and though the release of the debut album of the same name was still two weeks away, it was clear that Beatlemania was about to explode.

One of the earliest and finest fan magazines, signed on the classic Hoffman cover 4. Beatles. Scarce original

vintage UK Beatles magazine from 1963, published by PYX, 7.25 x 9.5, 28 pages, featuring a classic color Dezo Hoffman photograph of band in their matching gray collarless suits on the cover, signed in fountain pen, “Paul McCartney,” in blue ballpoint, “John Lennon,” and “Ringo Starr,” and in black ballpoint, “George Harrison xxx.” Signatures were obtained in Jersey, Channel Islands in August of 1963, where they played four nights at the Sprtingfield Ballroom. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from the original recipient which states: “This booklet was issued for the visit of the Beatles to St. Helier, Jersey, Channel Islands in August 1963. A friend and I attended two of their concerts and having found where they were staying, we left our copies on the desk in the hotel foyer. George Harrison came back earlier (I Think they were at a party with Frankie Howerd) and kindly signed his name plus three xxx s! John, Paul and Ringo duly arrived and signed all the programs, of which there were possibly about a dozen…The Beatles could be seen driving around freely on the island in their convertible and would often stop to offer people a ride. This happened to us in the area of St. Brelade’s Bay, but we declined as we were going in the opposite direction!” Some light skipping to Harrison’s signature from irregular ink flow, a light central vertical crease, some light cover wear, and remnants of the original owner’s name above McCartney’s signature, otherwise fine condition. The band seldom signed magazines, and this particular magazine, featuring a classic color Hoffman image, is a true rock and roll rarity.

Original 1962 Astrid Kirchherr uninscribed band portrait with new drummer Ringo Starr 5. Beatles. Outstanding original vintage glossy 6.5 x 8.5 full-length photo of the band taken in November 1962 by Astrid Kirchherr, boldly signed on the reverse in blue ballpoint, “Paul McCartney xxx,” “John Lennon xxx,” “George Harrison xxx,” and “Ringo Starr xxx.” In very good condition, with some scattered creases, none affecting the amazing signatures, and scattered light surface marks, creases, and impressions from signatures on reverse to image side. Signatures were acquired at the Queen’s Theatre in Blackpool, Lancashire in the summer of 1963 given to a gentleman who helped the band take their equipment into the venue. Accompanied by two letters of authenticity from noted Beatles expert Frank Caiazzo, both dated April 28, 2013, one authenticating the signatures and the other appraising the photo. Also included is a letter of authenticity from noted Beatles expert Perry Cox. One of the earliest known images of the final incarnation of the band, as Ringo had accepted an offer to join the band in August of 1962.

Early and complete band-signed promo card with Pete Best

6. Beatles. Vintage promo card photo of the Beatles, circa early 1962, 5.5 x 3.5, showing the band, clad in matching suits, sitting in a semicircle, signed and inscribed on the reverse in black ballpoint, “To Jean, love Paul McCartney xxx,” “Love to Jean from Pete Best xxx,” “Love to Jean from John Lennon xxx,” and “Jean, George Harrison xxx.” In fine condition, with surface impressions to image from the crisp, bold signatures on reverse.

The ‘Fab Four’ all sign their debut album while on the road in March of 1963 7. Beatles. Please Please Me album signed and inscribed on the back cover in blue ballpoint, “To Linda, love from the Beatles, John Lennon xxx,” “Paul McCartney,” “George Harrison,” and “Ringo Starr.” Back cover is also signed in blue ballpoint by Tommy Roe and Chris Montez. In good to very good condition, with scattered soiling and staining, partial separation to bottom edge, old tape repairs and peeling to edges, creasing to front cover, as well as a staple hole to top left corner, and several small name notations in another hand. The record is included. With the additional signatures of Roe and Montez, it seems almost certain that the signatures were acquired during their March 1963 tour of England. Any album signed by all four members is highly desirable, with only roughly 75 signed copies of this title known to exist. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.…(MB $1000)

1963 ‘Fab Four’ Hoffman promo card

8. Beatles. Vintage Parlophone Records promotional photocard from October of 1962, 5.5 x 3.25, featuring an image of the band working in the recording studio, signed on the reverse in green ballpoint, “Ringo Starr xxx,” and “John Lennon,” and in blue ballpoint, “Paul McCartney,” and “George Harrison.” Double-matted and framed (so both sides may be viewed) with a stereo Please Please Me album cover to an overall size of 21.5 x 27. In very good condition, with some light dampstaining showing through from opposite side, missing top corner tips (not visible on signature side), and some scattered light soiling, not detracting from the boldness of the signatures. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from noted Beatles expert Frank Caiazzo stating, “The signatures on this card date from early 1963, and these represent excellent examples from the period.” Also accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Tracks. Parlophone Records produced a small quantity of promotional photocards in two formats—a horizontal and a vertical, both with pictures being shot by Dezo Hoffman while the Beatles were in the studio. Almost all of these cards were signed on the reverse, because there was very little light area on the front of the cards for their signatures. Taken September 4, 1962, by famed Beatles photographer Dezo Hoffmann, it shows the group in their final incarnation at the very beginning of their storied career, and the first promo card with new drummer Ringo.

The ‘Lads from Liverpool’ leave London to begin filming Help! 9. Beatles. Original vintage oversized B.O.A.C.—Cunard inflight menu for the “Beatles Bahamas Special” London to New York flight in February of 1965. The four-page menu measures 7.5 x 10.75, and is signed and inscribed in black ballpoint on the first page, “Best wishes to Stephen, Paul McCartney,” “Good heaven from John Lennon,” and “Ringo Starr,” and signed on the back cover in blue ballpoint, “George Harrison.” First page is also signed in black ballpoint by Help! cast members Victor Spinetti (ins), Eleanor Bron, Roy Kinnear, and John Bluthal, adding his character name underneath. All signatures on the first page uniformly lightly faded, but all still completely legible, creasing to covers, and a couple small edge tears and areas of surface loss to front cover, otherwise fine condition. On February 22, 1965, the band flew from London to the Bahamas, with a stop in New York, to commence filming on their second feature film, HELP! The following day, primary shooting began—and filming in various locations would continue over the next two weeks. Although the Bahamas sequences would be the last to appear in the completed film, it was the first location on the shooting schedule. Authentic examples of their signatures from this period are scarce as they were virtually inaccessible by their fans. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.…(MB $1000)

Signing a ‘Four Aces’ program for a fan too ill to attend the show 10. Beatles. Original ‘Four Aces’ program

from the Beatles Fall 1964 tour with Mary Wells, 8 x 10.5, 16 pages, featuring images of the band on playing cards on the front cover. Signed in blue ballpoint on their full page image on the inside cover, “John Lennon,” “George Harrison,” “Ringo Starr,” and “Paul McCartney.” A collector’s notation of “November 1, 1964,” has been added to the front cover. In very good condition, with light creasing and wrinkling to cover and signed page, other creasing and handling wear to inside pages, missing upper staple of binding, and a spot of light toning to first page. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from the original recipient which reads, “I can confirm that the Beatles playing cards programme was signed on November 1st at Finsbury Park, Astoria Cinema, London in 1964. My mother knew the management staff who obtained the autographs personally for myself as I was ill…As a gift my parents gave me the programme the day after the concert.” The band played a 10-song set at the cinema, including ‘Twist and Shout,’ ‘If I Fell,’ and ‘A Hard Day’s Night.’ A scarce signed program which more than made up for the poor girl missing the show.

Full set of signatures, two acquired at their only performance at the Ritz Ballroom

11. Beatles. Vintage ballpoint signatures, “John Lennon” and “Ringo Starr,” on a light green 5.5 x 3.25 album page from 1964, and “Beatles George Harrison xxx” and “Paul McCartney xxx,” on a beige 6 x 3 album page, bearing a collector’s notation on the reverse, “Ritz Ballroom Birmingham, Fri 15th February 1963.” In fine condition, with a few light wrinkles to both pages. The Beatles were originally scheduled to appear at the Ritz in January of 1963, however, the show was postponed due to a blizzard. By the time the rescheduled show took place in July, Please Please Me was riding the charts and Beatlemania was beginning to spread, but fortunately for the promoters, the band honored their originally agreed upon booking fee.

Excellent set of signatures obtained during the filming of Magical Mystery Tour 14. Beatles. Choice vintage ballpoint signatures of Paul McCartney,

Ringo Starr, George Harrison, and John Lennon on an off-white 5.25 x 7 lightly-lined sheet. Signatures were obtained in September of 1967 at the Atlantic Hotel, Newquay, Cornwall, England, while the Beatles were filming Magical Mystery Tour. In fine condition, with a central horizontal fold passing through Harrison’s last name, and some scattered light creases. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Tracks. Also accompanied by a letter of provenance from the original recipient which reads, “While on holiday in Newquay Cornwall, my friend and I went to the Atlantic Hotel where the Beatles were staying while filming the Magical Mystery Tour. While there we met the fan club secretaries, who took us into the hotel lounge to meet John, Paul, George & Ringo. We chatted to them for about 5 mins and Paul jokingly asked ‘Where you from then,’ having recognised our Liverpool accents. They then gave us their autographs. This was in Sept. 1967.” The band, cast, and crew descended on the Atlantic Hotel on September 12, 1967, with the intention of staying for just one night, but after considerable discussion they decided to make it the base for filming in the area and stayed for three nights. After filming both at the hotel and surrounding areas on the 13th and 14th, the Beatles and their party departed after breakfast the following morning.

Double-matted and framed with two photos of the three signers to an overall size of 18 x 9.75. In very good condition, with moderate creases, some through portions of signatures and scattered soiling. Accompanied by a 2007 letter of appraisal from noted Beatles expert Frank Caiazzo, who states: “These signatures date from 1968, and as such are extremely rare, because the Beatles signed very few items that year…I place a value of $6,000…on this item.” Any signatures from this late in the band’s career are particularly scarce, as all touring had ceased two years earlier.

“Why don’t we do it in the road?” 17. Paul McCartney. Rare souvenir handwritten lyrics to the White Album song “Why Don’t We Do It in the Road?,” on an off-white 6.5 x 6.25 napkin, signed at the bottom in black felt tip, “Paul McCartney!!, 2010.” McCartney pens a few lines of the repetitive song. In full: “Why don’t we do it / in the road? / Why don’t we do it / in the road? / No-one will / be watching us / Why don’t we do it / in the road?” Nicely matted and framed to an overall size of 11.5 x 12.5. In very fine condition. Originally donated by McCartney to the PRS for Music ‘Art of the Song’ charity auction to fundraise for the Teenage Cancer Trust. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Tracks. McCartney is said to have originally written the song after seeing two monkeys copulating in the street while visiting with the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in Rishikesh, India. He recorded the track with just Ringo Starr, an act which raised tension among the already strained relationships within the group. McCartney handwritten lyrics are extremely rare— hardly ever entering the marketplace—and never so neatly penned and beautifully presented.

One of less than a dozen signed copies of Lennon’s final album Double Fantasy 18. John Lennon and Yoko Ono. Promotional copy of the Double Fantasy album signed on the back in black ballpoint in the sky area of the Kishin Shinoyama photo, “Love, John Lennon” and “Yoko Ono.” The record is not included. The album jacket, which is embossed with ‘Promotional Copy Not For Sale,’ and also bears a sticker which states, “Includes the single (Just Like) Starting Over,” just below the name Yoko Ono on the front cover, has been split along the top and bottom seams so as to display both sides, then matted and framed to an overall size of 32.5 x 20. A mild area of moisture discoloration and two spots of minor surface loss to upper left corner of back cover, and a small affixed photo covering an inscription, otherwise fine condition. This particular album was once owned by Dick Clark, and is accompanied by a 2006 auction book from Guernsey’s in which the item previously appeared, and also by two Frank Caiazzo letters: a letter of authenticity, and an appraisal letter for the album issued in February 2007. To date, less than ten signed copies of Double Fantasy have been documented, as Lennon signed a scant handful of promotional copies for close friends and associates. This example, according to Caiazzo, was signed during the last week of November 1980, just two weeks before Lennon’s murder on December 8. A true rock rarity which would hold a place of distinction in any Beatles or music collection. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.…(MB $1000)

Risque ‘Erotic No. 3’ from the famous Bag One series 20. John Lennon. Limited edition 29.75 x 23

lithograph entitled ‘Erotic No. 3,’ from the bag One series, numbered 211/300, signed in the lower right corner in pencil, “John Lennon.” In fine condition, with mild uniform toning over image and portion of borders from previous display, and some scattered light creases. In 1969, as a wedding gift for Yoko, John drew the ‘Bag One Portfolio’—a chronicle of their wedding ceremony, honeymoon, and their plea for world peace in the Bed-In.

Simply amazing unreleased one-hour Lennon interview with Howard Smith from 1970 about the Beatles, tension surrounding their final album, and his political activism 21. John Lennon and Yoko Ono. Two reels containing an unreleased and unedited audio interview with Lennon and Ono conducted by Howard Smith in Toronto around late 1969. Smith, an overnight rock DJ and columnist for the Village Voice enjoyed unprecedented access to such rock luminaries as Lennon, Mick Jagger, Jim Morrison, Pete Towshend and countless others. Both 1200˝ tapes are in their original boxes with one labeled in an unknown hand, “John & Yoko Toronto #1,” with the interview having a total running time of slightly over one hour. In one part of the interview, Smith asks several questions about any touring plans for the band, their upcoming album, and the potential breaking up of the group. Excerpts are as follows: HS: Will there be more Beatles records coming out soon? JL: “There’s a Beatles album coming out in January which we finished a few months back…Get Back…It was the one that was originally scheduled before Abbey Road…to tie it up with the film which is a documentary of us suffering making the thing.” HS: Whose songs will be on the album? JL: “All of us…It’s a strange album…We never really finished it…we didn’t really want to do it. Paul was hustling for us to do it…It’s the Beatles with their suits off.” HS: How do you decide whose songs go on the album now that George is writing? JL: “We hustle for it…in the old days Paul and I won…I don’t know personally if there will ever be another Beatle product with the four of us on again…In the old days Paul and I wrote most of the songs because George wasn’t prolific. We encouraged him to an extent, subconsciously we would have just made sure we got the LP for ourselves…Now there’s three of us all trying to squash ourselves onto 14 tracks…Do we make a double album everytime…that’s why I broke out with the Plastic Ono Band.” HS: There have been rumors that you are breaking up. Is that true at all? JL: “Ringo’s left once, George has left once for a couple of days.” HS: Any chance the Beatles will tour ever again? JL: “I’d say it’s 90–1 chance they wont. It doesn’t sound very inviting to me…touring. Touring was a drag…It was just a drag. I don’t know how the Stones did this tour…It was complete madness from morning till night, not one moment’s peace…Living with each other in a room for four years on tour, we toured for four years…Of course there were many great moments…when we talk about it there’s many laughs, but when you get down to the physical reality it was all pain because there was nothing in the music. We would get no feedback…we weren’t improving…half the time we would just mime on the mic because your voice had gone. The kids would just be howling.”

HS: People just want to see you perform live. JL: “It’s an anticlimax to the buildup of the myth, the myth is bigger than the actual four human guitarists, three guitarists and a drummer. The myth is bigger than the reality…I’m inclined to leave them with the myth. If the Beatles would split open the group a bit and have Yoko, and Billy Preston, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, and Elvis Presley in the group I might be interested. But as the Fab Four I’m not personally interested in going out like that.” Lennon begins the interview discussing his political activism, as he is in Toronto making plans for a peace festival in July of 1970, with faint hopes the rest of the band might join him there. Unfortunately, the required permits were denied, and it was later revealed that John and Yoko were under the scrutiny of the Canadian security service. He also discusses his continued support of James Hanratty’s family eight years after his execution, makes mentions of his bed-in in Montreal, and their “War Is Over” billboard campaign.The most interesting pieces of the interview naturally center around the final months of the Beatles, as Lennon openly discusses the difficulty of each member campaigning for their own songs to be included, the tension in the studio, and the ridiculous public expectations placed upon the band. Originally titled Get Back, the album was reworked by Phil Spector and retitled Let It Be, their final studio album. This particular interview goes hand-in-hand with the opinions of many rock historians about the recording of the album, as John echoes the sentiments of the aggravation and discord amongst the members that led to their eventual break-up later that year. A never-before-released frank and honest interview from one of the most revered musicians and activists of all time. RR Auction COA.…(MB $300)


Lennon’s ‘Lost Weekend’–inspired album complete with three original sketches, presented to a friend and restauranteur 22. John Lennon. Walls and Bridges album signed and inscribed on the front cover in blue ballpoint, “To Richard and Cynn ‘Home’ with love and tee shirts from yer old pal John 74,” adding a self-portrait caricature under his signature, as well as small sketches of an elephant and a dog. Lennon has also added the proper genitalia to one of the soccer players on the album cover. In very good condition, with separated top edge, scattered edge wear and creases, and some dampstaining along top edge. The record is included. Richard and his first wife, Cynthia Ross, were the owners of Manhattan’s Home restaurant and bar which was a regular haunt for Lennon. The ex-Beatle and Richard Ross had an ongoing joke regarding elephants, as well as a close friendship, explaining the anatomical addition to the cover.

With John en route via helicopter, his band mates sign their debut album 23. Beatles. Please Please Me

album signed and inscribed in blue ballpoint on the back cover, “To Sue, Love from the Beatles, Ringo Starr xxx,” “Paul McCartney,” and “George Harrison.” Reverse also bears a sketch of a beetle and “1963,” in the album’s owner’s hand, as well as “Abergavenny, 1963,” written along the top edge. In very good condition, with some moderate contrast to Starr’s signature over printing, old tape and toning near horizontal edges, scattered creasing to both covers, and a few small stains, not affecting any of the signatures. The record is included. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Tracks. Signatures were obtained prior to the band’s performance at the Town Hall in Abergavenny, on June 22, 1963. The reason that the recipient did not get John Lennon’s autograph is because he was still in London recording a TV appearance on the program ‘Ready Steady Go.’ Immediately after the recording, Lennon was flown by a private helicopter just in time to get to the Town Hall to appear on stage at the venue.

Christmas card from 1978, with a wonderful one-of-a-kind hand-drawn family portrait 24. John Lennon. Christmas card from

1978, measuring 3.5 x 8.5 closed, with a printed drawing by Sean Lennon on the front. Lennon has turned the blank inside sideways, 8.5 x 7.5 opened, and signed inside in black felt tip, “Happy 79! Love, John, Yoko, Sean, 78,” then added three adorable caricatures of himself, Yoko, and Sean. In fine, bright, clean condition. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope, addressed in type to Mr. and Mrs. Dale Keller in New York, with a typed return address on the back flap of “Studio One, with a Dake Keller and Associates office stamp on the front, dated December 27, 1978. Card originates from the collection of Dale and Pat Keller, world renowned interior designers. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Tracks.

Lennon’s began drawing at a relatively early age, ending up at the Liverpool College of Art, after failing his GCE O-level exams, with the intention of becoming a commercial artist. He was a constant disruption while enrolled, being banned from several classes before he was eventually expelled. His drawing and writing continued throughout his career with the Beatles, and after the band broke up. More than a dozen exhibitions of his work were arranged during his lifetime. At the time he sent this magnificent example to the Kellers, John was still in the midst of his five-year hiatus, devoting all of his time to his family and being a house husband. As evidenced by the portrait, he took to it quite well, with all three family members sporting large smiles. While small doodles of John and Yoko appear occasionally, such large family portraits are seldom encountered. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.…(MB $300)

Terrific, unpublished original negatives of the Beatles arriving for their first Australian concert 26. Beatles. Eight unpublished original 2.25 x 2.25 negatives of the Beatles arriving

in Adelaide during their 1964 tour of Australia. Three show the Beatles—John, Paul, and George—deplaning and on the tarmac, three show them riding in a special convertible, and two show immense crowds gathered to receive them. Includes contact prints of each negative. Images are sold with copyright. In overall fine condition. Provenance: Christie’s, 1990. Although the Beatles included Australia among their stops during the 1964 world tour, Adelaide wasn’t originally on the itinerary. A petition from local DJ Bob Francis convinced them it was worthwhile, after he acquired over 80,000 signatures in three weeks’ time—in response, the Beatles made the city the site of their first-ever Australian show. They arrived in Adelaide on June 12, 1964, to an overwhelming reception—somewhere between 200,000 and 350,000 lined the streets to welcome them as their motorcade took them from the airport to their hotel. Ringo Starr had fallen ill from tonsillitis a week earlier, leading Brian Epstein to hire Jimmie Nicol to fill in—it was Nicol behind the drum kit for all four of their Adelaide shows (though he is absent from these photos), before Ringo was able to rejoin the band at their next stop in Melbourne. From their touchdown at the airport to the massive crowds, these fantastic unpublished images capture the very essence of the Beatles’ historic arrival on the continent. RR Auction COA.…(MB $300)

Excessively rare Casbah Coffee Club card— the site of some of their earliest performances 28. Beatles. Extremely rare membership card for the 1959–60 season at the Casbah Coffee Club, measuring 4.5 x 3.5 closed, filled out inside with the information of a Liverpudlian patron, and dated June 2, 1960. In fine condition, with two blue ink marks to the front and trivial edge toning. Accompanied by letters of authenticity from Tracks and from noted Beatles expert Perry Cox. The Casbah Club was owned by Mona Best—drummer Peter Best’s mother—and situated at Hayman’s Green, West Derby, Liverpool. The ‘Quarrymen’ played seven consecutive Saturday night performances at the venue in 1959 and the ‘Beatles’ played at the club twice in 1960. The Club charged half a crown annually for membership to keep out ‘rough elements,’ and the Quarrymen’s Saturday night shows became so popular that queue to enter flowed down the street. An exceptional relic from one of the Beatles’ very first and most intimately associated venues. RR Auction COA.…(MB $300)

Inside collar bears a Butwin manufacturer’s label and is a size 40. Accompanied by a 2013 letter of provenance from Kirk which states, in part: “I…was Elvis Presley’s personal nurse from 1968–1977. I…lived on the Graceland property from 1973–1983…Elvis gave me many of his personal belongings as gifts while I was taking care of him and his family…This jacket was the winter jacket. They were made for security so that Elvis could see them from the stage…This jacket, size 40, was Elvis’. To my knowledge, he never wore it. He tried it on and said, ‘Tishina, I’m, no…baseball player.’…One evening at Graceland as I was leaving, it was pouring down rain. Elvis put the jacket over my head and zipped [sic, buttoned] it up and said ‘now you won’t melt.’ The next day after work, I took his jacket to him and he told me to keep it.” In fine condition.

Presley’s personally-owned police light: “He had several blue lights, and yes, he played with them” 120. Elvis Presley.

Presley’s personallyowned and -used blue police light, manufactured by Southern Vehicle Products, model 1166. Light is a teardrop shape with dimensions of approximately 7 x 5 x 5, and is powered by a 12-volt ‘cigarette’ plug. The bottom has a small metal bracket and three slots for magnets (two of which retain their magnets; the third magnet is present and seems as if it could be forced back in). In fine condition. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from his personal nurse, Tish Henley, in full: “Elvis had a close relationship with the mayors and police officers in Shelby County. He had several blue lights, and yes, he played with them. The night he gave me my 1976 Pontiac Gran Prix, he drove it first out I-55 and put the light on the dash. He drove very fast as usual. I was excited, nervous, and very scared.” The connection between Elvis and the police is stronger than one might think—not only the purveyor of ‘Jailhouse Rock,’ Presley collected police badges and patches from wherever he went, and was friendly with local police forces—even occasionally joining them on their rounds. Of this fascination, Retired Memphis Police Department Captain Robert Ferguson once said, ‘Elvis didn’t want to be a chief or a sheriff; he wanted to be a policeman, and this identified himself with the patrolmen on the force...He actually appeared to be in awe of us, rather than the other way around.’ His ex-wife Priscilla also wrote about this in her memoir, describing Elvis’s wilder side and confirming his use of vehicular gadgetry: ‘He had a million badges and a blue police light on his car. He liked nothing more than putting that light on his car and pulling people over. He’d walk up to the window, show off his official badge and say, ‘Son, you were speeding. Just want to warn you to slow down.’ The driver would see him and remain speechless.’ An amazing item personally owned by Presley and related to one of his favorite hobbies.

“Love and Happiness to the Queen of the Sky” 142. Jimi Hendrix. Amazing program for Hendrix’s 1969 US tour, entitled ‘Electric Church: A Visual Experience,’ 12 x 12, 30 pages, signed

twice and inscribed on the back cover in blue ballpoint, “Love and Happiness to the Queen of the Sky, to Angel Maria, Stay free forever, Jimi Hendrix,” and “Thank you for the future, Jimi Hendrix,” along with a small sketch of a heart. The six page cover is intact with irregular staining to the left side of the back cover (primarily affecting the upper signature and inscription), otherwise fine condition; the pages inside are clean. Hendrix embraced the ‘electric church’ concept as a cosmic, quasi-spiritual belief that music could flow around the world like an electrical force, into bodies and out of souls, enlightening people along the way. On the Dick Cavett show in 1969, Hendrix explained that he designed his music to go ‘inside the soul of the person, and awaken some kind of thing inside, because there are so many sleeping people.’ It is no coincidence, either, that he literally relied on electricity to create his music in the first place—at its core, the Hendrix sound is the result of an electrical signal passing through a series of wires, magnets, transistors, and vacuum tubes. This is a particularly fantastic example of a Hendrix signed album because it incorporates these cosmic ideas into the inscriptions, “Love and Happiness to the Queen of the Sky” and “Thank you for the future,” which are reminiscent of some of his more psychedelic lyrics.Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.…(MB $500)

Arriving in Hawaii for the filming of Rainbow Bridge, “Jimi Hendrix, Seattle, Washington” and friends register at their hotel 143. Jimi Hendrix.

Leatherbound guest book from a hotel in Hawaii, 8 x 6, signed inside in black ballpoint, “Jimi Hendrix, Seattle, Washington.” Although undated, the signatures immediately preceeding and following Hendrix’s signature are both dated July 31, 1970, the page is headed at the top in an unknown hand, “Antahkarana Staff July/August 1970,” and the page is also signed on both sides by 18 others, including Rainbow Bridge collaborators Michael Jeffrey (producer), Chuck Wein (director), Melinda Merryweather, John Schreyer (editor), Michael Hynson, Maureen Thornton, Miss Mercy, and Patricia Hartley. In fine condition. The day prior to signing this register, Hendrix played a free outdoor concert on the slopes of Hawaii’s Haleakala volcano. The show would be included in the film Rainbow Bridge—a documentary about various singers, musicians, and artists, who attended a ‘New Age’ gathering in Maui—which was financed by Hendrix’s manager, Mike Jeffrey, who also signed the register. The final version of the film used very little footage from the show, as it was not intended to be a concert film, and no songs were released on the soundtrack due to poor audio quality due to the strong winds that day. The following day Hendrix and his reformed Experience, would play his final show in the United States, at the Honolulu International Center, before heading to Europe on the second leg of the tour, which concluded just two weeks before his untimely death.

Arguably the two most influential musicians of the 1960s 148. Jimi Hendrix and Bob Dylan. Pro-

motional poster for Sunn amplifiers featuring an image of Hendrix performing, 23 x 29, signed on a panel on the reverse in black ink, “Love always, Jimi Hendrix” and “Bob Dylan,” and signed in blue ballpoint by one other. The advertisement poses the question, “Ever felt the sound of the Jimi Hendrix Experience?” Below, the smaller text reads, “February 14, 1968 the Jimi Hendrix Experience experienced the sound of Sunn. They now use Sunn amplifiers and sound systems exclusively.” In fine condition, with intersecting folds (as issued), some light toning and soiling, and tack holes to corner tips. Signatures are to a single panel and therefore unaffected by the folds. Although Hendrix is known for using Marshall amplifiers, he signed a promotional deal with Sunn in 1967 after the Monterey Pop Festival—they agreed to supply the entire Experience with whatever they needed, in exchange for the band’s input into research and development. The deal, originally intended to last five years, got cut short at just 14 months because Hendrix was unhappy with the sound and switched back to Marshall. Noel Redding, however, continued to use Sunn amps for his bass. This poster was most likely signed on two different occasions—although Hendrix and Dylan were known to admire each other (see: ‘All Along the Watchtower’), they aren’t known to have spent much time in the same place. In a 1969 interview with Rolling Stone, Hendrix said, ‘I love Dylan. I only met him once, about three years ago, back at the Kettle of Fish on MacDougal Street. That was before I went to England. I think both of us were pretty drunk at the time, so he probably doesn’t remember it.’ A fantastic and unique piece, this is the only item we have ever encountered signed by both Hendrix and Dylan—two of the most sought after rock signatures in the hobby.

the doors “I’ve always seen Los Angeles as a microcosm of The States, a genetic blue-print,” writes Morrison in the spring of ‘71: “I came here originally to make films & got into music by accident” 190. Jim Morrison. Autograph letter, five pages, lightlylined, 6 x 8.25, no date, but circa Spring of 1971. Unsigned letter to Dave Marsh of Creem Magazine. In full (with spelling and grammar retained): “Thanks for your interest & your patience. I’ve been working on our album for the last few months & I’ve finally got my head free to answer you. 1st we recorded this album in our rehearsal studio w/ our 8-track in the office upstairs. This one we produced ourselves. The engineer & co-producer is Bruce Botnik, who we’ve worked w/ since the 1st album. He’s a young guy & more like a brother. It went fast & well. Mixing is next week & the album should be released by May 1. This is a blues album & we even included a John Lee Hooker cut called Crossing King Snake, which was part of our set in the earliest club days. The songs have a lot to do w/ America & what its like to live these years in L.A.—& by extension—The United States. (I’ve always seen Los Angeles as a microcosm of The States, a genetic blue-print). I came here originally to make films & got into music by accident for me, as it gave me experience & an outlet for ideas, and a chance to work out a personal myth, late-adolescent phantasy, at large. HWY, a 50 minute 35 mm. color film, is a further evolution of this personal heroic myth. I’m working on another book & a long essay on the Trial in Florida.” Near the bottom of the final page, Morrison also adds a small doodle resembling and eye. Nicely matted and framed (with a textured almost lizard-like mat), a color portrait of Morrison, and a small plaque to an overall size of 41.5 x 30. In fine condition, with some small stains to the first page. During the final stages of the mixing process for what would become their final album, L.A. Woman, Morrison responded to a letter from the always-critical founding editor of Creem, David Marsh, with extraordinary insight into his and The Doors’ life at the time. Proudly touting the work as a “blues album,” representing “what its like to live these years in L.A.,” he segues into his own personal experience with the city that made him. Admitting that he “got into music by accident” in his quest to live out a “personal heroic myth,” the UCLA film school grad discusses other aspects of his development as an artist, including his cinematic work HWY, and a book-in-progress on his trial in Florida (he was convicted of indecent exposure for an incident at a 1969 concert in Miami). Only a handful of Morrison correspondence has ever come to market, and with such remarkable personal and professional content and emphasis on Los Angeles, this scrawling five-page letter is by far one of the most important. A remarkable piece from the iconic rock front man, just months before his early death at the age of 27. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.…(MB $500)

Morrison,” “John Densmore,” “Robby Krieger,” and “R. Manzarek,” on a 7 x 8.75 guest register page from a Los Angeles recording studio sign-in book, dated January 24, 1968. Vince Treanor, the Doors long-time road manager, signed above the musicians’ signatures, adding the band’s name. Above Treanor’s signature and on the opposite side of the page are signatures of Bee Gees musicians and personnel, including Barry Gibb (2), Maurice Gibb (2), Robin Gibb (2), and Colin Petersen (2). In fine condition. This recording session for the band’s third album, Waiting for the Sun—which became the band’s first and only number one album—was marred by Morrison’s increased dependence on drugs and alcohol. Morrison had dodged a bullet earlier in the month when charges stemming from his infamous arrest during a concert in New Haven, Connecticut, were dropped, yet the singer’s erratic behavior would continue. Five days after signing this registry in California, Morrison was beaten by security guards he had taunted outside the Pussycat a’ Go Go, a Las Vegas casino. When the police arrived, they arrested the singer on charges of vagrancy, public drunkenness, and failure to possess sufficient identification. It is rare to find members of the Doors on one sheet, most notably from such a turbulent period in the band’s existence. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.…(MB $300)

Zeppelin III album signed on the front cover in blue ballpoint, “Best wishes, John Bonham.” In fine condition, with a bit of scattered minor cover wear. The record is included. Accompanied by a copy of a 2009 letter from the original owner, which reads, in part: “During the late 70’s and early 80’s, John Bonham’s son Jason was a member of the West Mercia Motorcycle Scrambling Club…the club was run by my late grandfather, and over this period my family got to know John Bonham and his family very well. John donated 2 sets of the above listed albums, so my Grandfather could raise funds for the Social club by raffling the albums. I was fortunate to obtain a set of the albums.” Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from Roger Epperson/REAL. Single-signed items from one of rock’s most iconic drummers are few and far between. Intriguingly, with the other three band members still living, one could conceivably use this very album as a basis to assembling a complete Led Zeppelin set. RR Auction COA.…(MB $200)

Earthly authority, national leaders or rulers could not understand the talk about the heavenly kingdom; at the same time they couldn’t stop the heavenly kingdom from coming. Peter and John know this.

Chevalier presents one of his trademark ‘Boater’ hats 315. Sammy Davis, Jr.

Davis’s personally-owned straw ‘Boater’ hat with a blue band, made by A. E. Olney and Co. Ltd., of Luton, and imprinted on the lining in gold lettering, “Made expressly for Maurice Chevalier,” and signed and inscribed on the lining in black felt tip, “For Sammy—Merci, Maurice, Paris.” Moderate brushing to signature and illegible date, otherwise fine condition. The ‘boater’ hat was a Chevalier trademark, as he always wore one on stage with his tuxedo. Chevalier was known to do a spot-on impression of Davis at times. The men were great friends, with Chevalier gifting Sammy this hat in 1960, an event documented in the book Sammy Davis, Jr.: Me and My Shadow by Arthur Silber, Jr. (Samart Enterprises, September 1, 2003). Sammy later utilized the wardrobe piece in his act. Though the image we have of Sammy in this hat is actually from 1981, he likely wore the hat much earlier at a time when he was still doing his impressions. It has been said that the legendary entertainer quit performing them when Red Skelton teased him that his impression act only consisted of deceased people. Provenance: Hat was originally given to family friend Al Carter by Davis’s wife Altovise after his death in 1990. Carter was an entertainer and part of an opening act for Davis under the name Carter & Channel. RR Auction COA.…(MB $200)

Custom engraved Cartier watch 317. Sammy Davis, Jr. Da-

Watch and clasp were made in London in 1972, done in a style unique only to Cartier of London, and sports a black crocodile band, gold clasp stamped with several proof marks as well as a “1228,” on the back of the loop, and is engraved on the reverse, in an imitation of his own signature, “S D Jr.” The stamped number is in all likelihood the reference number for Cartier London, although it could be a production number for the casemaker. The hallmark “JC” is Cartier’s registered London mark. The mechanism is a fine grade LeCoultre 17J. The form of the watch, with its unique dial orientation, is seen in only a few Cartier models from France; otherwise, the watch is of unique style, and at most very limited production. Watch comes in its original Cartier box. In fine condition, with a dial refinish, which is quite common.

San Francisco, June 21, 1972, State of Israel Bonds.” In very good to fine condition, with moderate tarnishing to cup and presentation plaque. The Development Corporation for Israel (Israel Bonds) was founded in 1951 to raise money from the American public for the fledgling Israeli state, which, at the time, was struggling to build an infrastructure and economy to support its growing population. The first Israel Bonds sales drive was launched in New York by David Ben-Gurion in 1951, and would raise 52.6 million dollars by the end of 1951. The funds raised by the sale of Israel Bonds in 1951 and in subsequent years and decades were key factors in establishing a sound Israeli economy. Davis was severely injured in a car accident in 1954, in which he lost his left eye. His friend Eddie Cantor discussed the similarities of the Jewish and African American cultures. Davis would formally convert to Judaism in 1961, and would become an ardent supporter of the country for the remainder of his life. RR Auction COA.…(MB $200)

Joel’s personallyowned grand piano from the height of his career—as seen in his 1978 BBC concert 512. Billy Joel. Joel’s personally-owned and -used 1908 C. Bechstein Model M Grand Piano, serial number 88837, which he toured with and recorded on during the mid-1970s to mid-1980s. Most notably, he played this piano during a BBC concert and is said to have used it to record the song ‘New York State of Mind.’ The piano was professionally restored by Larkfield Pianos in 1992. Originally purchased from Frank Weber, Joel’s brother-in-law and manager during this period, and accompanied by documentation of ownership. While this model was not officially offered until 1920, the manufacturer has confirmed that earlier variations are not uncommon, due to experimentation in design during the early part of the century. Note: Winning bidder is responsible for cost of shipping piano from origin to destination. Please call RR Auction for more details. Rock stars of Joel’s caliber often choose to play Bechsteins not only because their sound compliments the human voice, but because of the piano’s rich history—analogous to a guitarist’s preference for Fender or Gibson. Bechstein is one of the most renowned piano makers in the world, and has been since it was established in 1853—Franz Liszt was one of its earliest customers. Others fond of the manufacturer included the likes of Queen Victoria and Wilhelm Furtwangler, and Claude Debussy once proclaimed: ‘Piano music should only be written for the Bechstein.’ In more modern times, the piano has crafted a niche in rock music—the Beatles used a Bechstein on ‘Hey Jude,’ Queen used one on A Night at the Opera, and it has been known as one of Bob Dylan’s preferred pianos since the 1960s. Continuing the Bechstein legacy, Joel utilized this piano as a main tool while revolutionizing and popularizing the ‘piano rock’ genre. In addition to the direct provenance from his one-time manager, Joel can be seen playing this exact piano during his Live at the BBC concert of March 14, 1978, during a set that consisted of some of his most famous songs—including ‘Movin’ Out,’ ‘She’s Always A Woman,’ and ‘Only the Good Die Young.’ A truly unique and one-of-a-kind piece of music history.

ron nevison collection Throughout his accomplished career as a sound engineer and record producer, Ron Nevison has assembled an impressive body of work spanning multiple eras, genres, and sounds. Whether kick-starting a stalled hit maker like Jefferson Airplane back into flight as Jefferson Starship, or breathing fresh air into a band’s outdated sound—such as was the case with Heart and Chicago— rarely has a project outmatched his multi-platinum production touch. Critics took note of Nevison’s exceptional ear early in his career—his first tremendous success came in 1973 with The Who’s Quadrophenia, which he engineered. In their review of the now-iconic album, Rolling Stone Magazine observed that it had been “magnificently recorded.” Nevison’s profile continued to rise through the mid-1970s as he helped to sonically shape a new generation of rock via his engineering work on the first three Bad Company’s LPs, Thin Lizzy, and perhaps most notably on Led Zeppelin’s 1975 Physical Graffiti LP, among a host of others. Nevison’s transition into head producer for groups like The Babys, Traffic’s Dave Mason, UFO, and Eddie Money cemented his status as one of the industry’s most in-demand hit record producers. Nevison’s successes were measured by those of the acts he produced throughout the 1980s, carving out a niche for himself as the go-to producer for veteran rock acts needing a commercial reintroduction to a new generation of rock fans. During this highly productive period, he produced three top-10 hits from Survivor’s ‘Vital Signs’ LP, eight top-10 hits with Heart (including #1 smash hits like ‘These Dreams’ and ‘Alone’), and orchestrated the turn-around of legendary pop-rock outfit Chicago on 1988’s ‘19’ LP, which produced three top-ten hits including ‘I Don’t Wanna Live Without Your Love,’ ‘Look Away,’ and ‘You’re Not Alone.’ Amid this era, Nevison balanced his smash pop-rock resume with a return to his harder rock roots through collaborations with genre giants like Ozzy Osbourne on ‘The Ultimate Sin,’ Kiss on ‘Crazy Nights,’ and the two multi-platinum Damn Yankees studio LPs. The producer also logged hits during the heyday of the hair-metal genre with platinum rockers including Europe, Bad English, Firehouse, and Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil. Nevison’s rock production was also discovered by a new audience throughout the 1990s as greatest hits collections were released by the likes of Led Zeppelin, The Who, and Thin Lizzy, all featuring classic hits engineered and/or produced by Ron Nevison, who continued to maintain a mainstream pop presence with these and other rock legends throughout the 1990s, producing hit records for Meatloaf, Night Ranger, Candlebox, Lynryd Skynryd, UFO, and Grand Funk Railroad. Ron Nevison’s career highlights include many of the record industry’s highest distinctions, including his being recognized as Billboard Magazine’s Top-5 Producers of the Year four separate times, garnering countless Grammynominated and winning hit records, and producing well over one hundred million albums sold in the course of his almost forty year career. The material in this section originates from Nevison’s personal collection and represents both his hands-on work—acetates and studio tapes for many of his most important albums—as well as the accolades that these garnered—most importantly, a large selection of RIAA silver, gold, and platinum record awards.

Acetate discs, also known as reference lacquers, look similar to typical vinyl records, but differ drastically in that they are used only in the production process and are not usually available to the

general public. Their purpose is to allow producers, artists, and sound engineers to double-check the quality of a final recording for any flaws or errors before it is sent off for mass production and

release—thus, the audio quality of the acetate is of the utmost importance. Whereas a vinyl record is mass-produced with a stamp, an acetate is created using a recording lathe to cut the grooves into

a blank disc in real time, an extremely exacting process that ensures the most precise recording possible. Upon approval from any necessary parties, the reference lacquer is then used to produce

a metal master, which is used to create a metal record called a ‘mother,’ which in turn is used to form the stamp to press the final record. Most importantly, there is a slight loss in audio quality in each

of these steps—the acetate, which is just one step beyond the original master tape, is essentially

the cleanest copy available, the album as it was intended to be heard by the artists and producers.

Rare reference lacquers for the innovative 1975 film Tommy 590. The Who: Tommy.

Two double-sided 12˝ acetates of The Who’s 1975 soundtrack for Tommy, each disc featuring two different sides of the final release. Both are identified in type on The Mastering Lab labels with the album title and side listed. In overall fine to very fine condition. Both accompanied by their original sleeves from The Mastering Lab. Tommy was first released by The Who in 1969, an album they envisioned as a singular ‘rock opera,’ telling the story of a ‘deaf, dumb and blind kid.’ In 1975, it was adapted for the screen with a starstudded cast that included members of The Who, Ann-Margret, Oliver Reed, Eric Clapton, Tina Turner, Elton John, and Jack Nicholson. Pete Townshend oversaw the production of an entirely new Tommy album for the soundtrack, this time using synthesizers to create orchestral arrangements he had envisioned and taking advantage of the available musicians—Elton John’s rendition of ‘Pinball Wizard’ was later released as a single and became a top-ten hit. While these acetates feature the soundtrack in traditional stereo form, Tommy was especially innovative in that it was one of the first music films that used multichannel ‘quintaphonic sound,’ similar to the surround sound systems of today.

Although a version of ‘Overture’ was recorded for the film, it did not make it onto the soundtrack—an entirely new song, ‘Prologue – 1945,’ replaced it as the opening song.

One of rock’s most innovative albums 592. The Who: Quadrophenia.

Two MCA Records double-sided 12˝ acetates of The Who’s renowned 1973 album Quadrophenia, each disc featuring two different sides of the final classic release. Both are identified in type on The Mastering Lab labels with relevant track listings and artist info. First disc is in fine to very fine condition; second has a small white mark on side three and thin white streak to side four, otherwise fine condition. Both accompanied by their original sleeves from The Mastering Lab, respectively labeled in an unknown hand, “Quadrophenia 1 & 2 Oct. 73” and “Quadrophenia 3 & 4 Oct. 73.” The album was exceptionally complex in both concept and production—designed as a double-LP rock opera that traced the four personalities of a single character, Quadrophenia incorporated impromptu recordings of waves on a beach, a diesel train, and brass band, and utilized synthesizers for even more sound effects. In an interview, Pete Townshend said of the project, ‘The music is the best music that I’ve ever written, I think, and it’s the best album that I will ever write.’ These acetates represent the closest possible reproduction of the historic album as it was intended to be heard by its creators, making them exceptionally desirable to collectors and audiophiles alike.

th e jo e y ram one collection The famed Ramones front man and countercultural icon who defined punk for a generation, Joey Ramone, is a larger-than-life figure in the history of rock music. The Ramones burst onto the New

York music scene and took it by storm—their unbridled energy and frenetic pace was unlike anything that had come before. Joey Ramone was crucial to their initial success—he was the one front man

on the burgeoning New York punk scene who was unique. He had a distinct style—long black hair,

leather jacket, sunglasses—to match what would become one of the most recognizable voices in punk. The first portion of this section (items 737–751) consists of numerous items straight from Ramone’s

estate, a collection that represents all that the name “Joey Ramone” conjures up—his stage-worn leather pants and t-shirts are highlights. Among the music-related items are two of his RIAA sales

awards and over a hundred records from his personal collection. The opportunity rarely arises to purchase items directly from a legend’s estate, and these come with impeccable provenance.

Fabulous stage-worn black leather pants, a major punk fashion statement 737. Joey Ramone. Joey Ramone’s stage-worn

leather pants. Black leather pants feature a button fly, zippers along each leg, and a Wear Wolf maker’s label along the back. Accompanied by a photo of Ramone on stage in the pants.

Published in 1978, the Clash Songbook featured 20 of the band’s song lyrics and bios of the members. Of the songs featured, ‘Career Opportunities’ was an attack on the economic situation in England, ‘Police and Theives’ was a reggae-inspired song originally written by Junior Murvin, and included on the album after jamming during a break in their recording session, and ‘White Riot,’ the band’s first single, and was quite controversial after its release, as some thought the band was trying to incite a race war. With very little handwritten band material having appeared on the market, this one-of-a-kind collection represents the largest assemblage from the punk rock icons we have seen.Pre-certified Roger Epperson/ REAL and RR Auction COA.…(MB $500)

Outdoor show with Greg Kihn Band & Separate Bets in Orange County.” He writes, in part: “The difference between the Yamaha PM—2000 and PM—1000 is ? THE INPUT MODULE. When you have hum you can flip the phase switch (acts as a ground)…You will have separate channels submasters can adjust a whole section of channels vocals or all drums…An independent monitor mix is: say a mic signal is split in two sections one to the board one to the independent monitor. This is used for when a particular channel needs to be heard louder through the monitor.” In fine condition, with some scattered light toning.

1989 visa to enter Japan for a two and a half week tour of the country.

Prince was hesitant to leave the solitude of Minnesota to embark on this Japanese leg of his Lovesexy World Tour—the final concert tour of the 1980s. The US portion of the tour was marked by lower than expected ticket sales, prompting Prince to consider canceling this Japanese tour in order to concentrate on the film Graffiti Bridge. Threats over a breach of contract lawsuit persuaded the artist to continue, which ultimately turned out to be a financial bust due to high production costs for its elaborate staging and props including a fountain, trellis fences, and a Ford Thunderbird.

Terms and Conditions of Sale TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE - AGREEMENT BETWEEN R&R AUCTION COMPANY, LLC AND BIDDER BY EITHER REGISTERING TO BID OR PLACING A BID, THE BIDDER ACCEPTS THESE CONDITIONS OF SALE AND ENTERS INTO A LEGALLY, BINDING, ENFORCEABLE AGREEMENT WITH RR AUCTION. The following terms and conditions constitute the sole terms and conditions under which R&R AUCTION COMPANY (“RR Auction”) will offer for sale and sell the property described in the Catalog. These Conditions of Sale constitute a binding agreement between the Bidder and RR Auction with respect to the auction. By bidding at auction, whether in person, through an agent or representative, by telephone, facsimile, on-line, absentee bid, or by any other form of bid or by any other means, the Bidder acknowledges the thorough reading and understanding of all of these Conditions of Sale, all descriptions of items in the Catalog, and all matters incorporated herein by reference, and agrees to be fully bound thereby. NO BID MAY BE PLACED IN ANY MANNER UNLESS THE BIDDER HAS FULLY REVIEWED AND AGREES TO ALL OF THE “CONDITIONS OF SALE” EITHER PRINTED IN THE CATALOG OR ONLINE, AS WELL AS THE TERMS OF THE REGISTRATION FORM. BY PLACING ANY BID, THE BIDDER REPRESENTS AND WARRANTS TO RR AUCTION THAT HE OR SHE HAS FULLY REVIEWED AND AGREES TO BE BOUND BY ALL OF THESE “CONDITIONS OF SALE” AND THE TERMS OF THE REGISTRATION FORM. WITHOUT SUCH REPRESENTATION, WARRANTY AND AGREEMENT, RR AUCTION WOULD NOT PERMIT THE BIDDER TO BID. Bidder and RR Auction agree that any agreements between the Bidder and RR Auction including but not limited to these Conditions of Sale are entered into in Amherst, New Hampshire, which is where the agreements are to be performed and the auction to take place, no matter where Bidder is situated and no matter by what means or where Bidder was informed of the auction and regardless of whether catalogs, materials, or other communications were received by Bidder in another location. Both RR Auction and the Bidder agree that any disputes under these Conditions of Sale, the subject matter hereof, the entering into, or any aspect of the auction, shall be exclusively governed by New Hampshire law, and that any and all claims or actions shall be brought and maintained only in Hillsborough County, New Hampshire. THE PARTIES EXPRESSLY WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY. The Bidder hereby consents that any dispute shall be presented in confidential binding arbitration before a single selected Arbitrator selected by the American Arbitration Association. The Bidder and RR Auction herby agree that the dispute shall go to binding arbitration in accordance with the commercial rules of the American Arbitration Association. The American Arbitration Association arbitration shall be conducted under the provisions of the Federal Arbitration Act and the Bidder consents to jurisdiction in the State of New Hampshire. Any dispute, claim, cause of action must be brought within one (1) year of the alleged breach, default or misrepresentation or the claim is waived. After one (1) year, the Bidder hereby releases and discharges RR Auction from any and all legal, equitable, administrative and/or other claims, counterclaims, demands, setoffs, defenses, accounts, suits, debts, dues, actions, causes of action, proceedings, arbitrations, damages, executions, judgments, findings, controversies and disputes, whether known or unknown or suspected or unsuspected, whether in law or equity, that the Bidder have or may have had against RR Auction arising from or relating to any claim whatsoever. Both Bidder and RR Auction agree that these provisions are intended to be binding on all parties in the event of any dispute specifically including third party claims and cross-actions brought by either RR Auction or Bidder, and that absent such agreement, RR Auction would not permit Bidder to bid hereunder. Any violation of the terms of this Paragraph shall entitle RR Auction to reasonable attorney fees and litigation costs in addition to all other available remedies, all of which remain reserved. The Bidder hereby agrees that RR Auction shall be entitled to present these Conditions of Sale to a court in any jurisdiction other than set forth in

this paragraph as conclusive evidence of the parties’ agreement, and the parties further agree that the court shall immediately dismiss any action filed in such jurisdiction. An award granted in arbitration is enforceable in any court of competent jurisdiction. The arbitrator’s award may be enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction. This agreement and any claims shall be determined and construed under New Hampshire law. RR Auction is in compliance, to the fullest extent possible, with New Hampshire procedures regarding the bonding of auctioneers. Auctioneer and Auction: 1. This Auction is presented by RR Auction, a d/b/a/ of R&R Auction Company, LLC, as identified with the applicable licensing information on the title page of the catalog or on the www.RRauction.com Internet site (the “Auctioneer”). The Auction is conducted under these Terms and Conditions of Sale and applicable state and local law. Announcements and corrections from the podium at live auctions and those made through the Terms and Conditions of Sale appearing on the Internet at RRauction.com supersede those in the printed catalog. Bidder/Bidders: 2. “Bidder” or “Bidders” shall mean the original Bidder of the property from RR Auction and not any subsequent owner or other person who may acquire or have acquired an interest therein. If Bidder is an agent, the agency must be disclosed in writing to RR Auction prior to the time of sale, otherwise the benefits of the warranty shall be limited to the agent and not transferable to the undisclosed principal. 3. The rights granted to Bidders under these Terms and Conditions of Sale are personal and may not be assigned or transferred to any other person or entity, whether by operation of law or otherwise. Any attempt to assign or transfer any such rights shall be absolutely void and unenforceable. No third party may rely on any benefit or right conferred on any Bidder by these Terms and Conditions of Sale. 4. Bids will not be accepted from minor persons under eighteen (18) years of age without a parent’s written consent containing an acknowledgment that the Terms and Conditions of Sale herein and indicating their agreement to be bound thereby on behalf of the Bidder. 5. Any person participating or registering for the Auction agrees to be bound by and accepts these Terms and Conditions of Sale. 6. All Bidders must meet Auctioneer’s qualifications to bid. Any Bidder who is not a client in good standing of RR Auction may be disqualified at RR Auction’s sole option and will not be awarded lots. Such determination may be made by RR Auction in its sole and unlimited discretion, at any time prior to, during, or even after the close of the Auction. RR Auction reserves the right to exclude any person from the auction. 7. If an entity places a bid, then the person executing the bid on behalf of the entity agrees to personally guarantee payment for any successful bid. 8. By accepting the Terms and Conditions of Sale, Bidder personally and unconditionally guarantees payment. If the Bidder is a corporation, the officers, directors, and principals of the corporation hereby agree to personally and unconditionally guarantee payment as part of the corporation’s agreement to bid. The authorized representative of any corporate Bidder who is present at the sale shall provide RR Auction or its agent, prior to the commencement of the bidding (or at the time of registration), with a statement signed by each principal, director and officer that they each personally and unconditionally guarantee any payment due RR Auction Credit: 9. In order to place bids, Bidders who have not established credit with the Auctioneer must either furnish satisfactory credit information (including two collectibles-related business references) or supply valid credit card information, well in advance of the Auction. Bidders who are not members of RRAuction.com should pre-register before the close of the Auction to allow adequate time to contact references. Credit will be granted at the discretion of Auctioneer. Additionally Bidders who have not previously established credit or who wish to bid in excess of their established credit history may be required to provide their social security number or the last four digits thereof so a credit check may


be performed prior to Auctioneer’s acceptance of a bid. Check writing privileges and immediate delivery of merchandise may also be determined by pre-approval of credit based on a combination of criteria: RRAuction.com history, related industry references, bank verification, a credit bureau report and/or a personal guarantee for a corporate or partnership entity in advance of the auction venue. Buyer’s Premium: 10. All bids are subject to a Buyer’s Premium which is in addition to the placed successful bid. The buyer’s premium will be added to the successful bid price and is payable by the Bidder as part of the total purchase price. The Bidder acknowledges and agrees that a 20% Buyer’s Premium will be added to the hammer price on all individual lots if payment is made by cash, check or wire payments. RR Auction may accept a current and valid VISA or MasterCard, credit or debit cards and/or PayPal for payment for winning bids under $5,000.00, but under the express condition that any property purchased by credit or debit card shall not be refundable, returnable, or exchangeable, and that no credit to Buyer’s credit or debit card account will be issued under any circumstances. In addition, there will be an additional 2.5% buyer’s Premium for Bidders who chose to pay via credit card or Paypal for invoices of $5,000 or less. The last sentence constitutes RR Auction’s “official policy” regarding returns, refunds, and exchanges where credit or debit cards are used. For payment other than by cash, delivery will not be made unless and until full payment has been actually received by RR Auction, i.e., check has fully cleared or credit or debit card funds fully obtained. Unless otherwise agreed in a writing signed by RR Auction, payment in full is due within thirteen (13) calendar days of the auction or within twelve (12) calendar days of the invoice date, whichever is later. Bidding: 11. By submitting a bid, whether online, in person, by mail, by phone, by facsimile or through an employee or agent, the Bidder acknowledges (i) receipt of the catalogue, (ii) that the Bidder has read the Terms and Conditions of Sale and the descriptions for the lots on which they have bid, and (iii) that they agree to adhere to these Terms and Conditions of Sale. 12. Each Bidder’s determination of its bid should be based upon its own examination of the item(s), rather than the strict reliance as to what is represented in this Catalogue, online or elsewhere. In any purchase or sale, the value of the item(s) is determined by the price. THE BIDDER HEREBY ASSUMES ALL RISKS OF VALUATION CONCERNING ANY AND ALL PURCHASES. 13. RR AUCTION IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ERRORS IN BIDDING. A Bidder should make certain to bid on the correct lot and that the bid is the maximum (plus the 20% Buyer’s Premium) that the Bidder is willing and able to pay. Since other Bidders (by mail, facsimile and in person) will be present, and since a re-offering could damage the momentum of the sale, once the hammer has fallen and the Auctioneer has announced the winning Bidder, such Bidder is unconditionally bound to pay for the lot, even if the Bidder has made a mistake. 14. If the description of any lot in the catalogue is incorrect (e.g. gross cataloging error), the lot is returnable if returned within five (5) calendar days of receipt, and received by RR Auction no later than twenty-one (21) calendar days after the sale date. NO RETURN OR REFUND OF ANY AUCTION LOT WILL BE CONSIDERED EXCEPT BY REASON OF LACK OF AUTHENTICITY, UNLESS OTHERWISE PROVIDED IN THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE. 15. All prospective Bidders who examine lots in person prior to the sale shall personally assume all responsibility for any damage they cause in so doing. RR Auction shall have sole discretion in determining the value of the damage caused, which shall be promptly paid by the prospective Bidder. 16. Title to any lot remains with Consignor, any secured party of the Consignor, or assignee of Consignor, as the case may be, until the lot is paid for in full by Bidder. RR Auction reserves the right to require payment in full before delivering any lot to the successful Bidder. 17. It is the Bidder’s responsibility and obligation to have the lots fully insured while in their possession. Bidder assumes any and all RISK OF LOSS once the lot(s) is in Bidder’s possession.

18. Bidder grants to RR Auction or its assigns the right to offset any sums due, or found to be due by RR Auction, and to make such offset from any past, subsequent or future consignment, or items acquired by Bidder in possession or control of RR Auction or from any sums due to Bidder by RR Auction. Bidder further grants RR Auction a purchase money security interest in such sums or items to the extent applicable, and agrees to execute such documents as may be reasonably necessary to grant RR Auction such security interest. Bidder agrees that RR Auction and its assigns shall be a secured party with respect to items bought by Bidder and in the possession of RR Auction, to the extent of the maximum indebtedness, plus all accrued expenses, until the indebtedness is paid. 19. By bidding in this sale, Bidder personally and unconditionally guarantees payment. If the Bidder is a corporation, the officers, directors, and principals of the corporation hereby agree to personally and unconditionally guarantee payment as part of the corporation’s agreement to bid. The authorized representative of any corporate Bidder who is present at the sale shall provide RR Auction or its agent, prior to the commencement of the bidding (or at the time of registration), with a statement signed by each principal, director and officer that they each personally and unconditionally guarantee any payment due RR Auction. 20. RR Auction may at its sole and absolute discretion, make loans or advances to Consignors and/or prospective Bidders. 21. If a dispute arises concerning ownership of a lot that has been bid upon during the course of the sale, RR Auction reserves the right to commence a statutory interpleader proceeding at the expense of the Consignor and successful Bidder and any other applicable party, and in such event shall be entitled to its reasonable attorney’s fees and costs. 22. In the event of a successful challenge to the title to any goods purchased, RR Auction agrees to reimburse any Bidder in an amount equal to the successful bid price actually paid by Bidder at auction plus any Buyer’s Commission actually paid, in full and complete satisfaction of all claims, which once tendered by RR Auction, relieves and releases RR Auction from any responsibility whatsoever to the Bidder, even if the instrument is not cashed or is returned. Bidding Options: 23. Non-Internet bids (including but not limited to podium, fax, phone and mail bids) are treated similar to floor bids in that they must be onincrement. Any podium, fax, phone, or mail bids that do not conform to a full increment will be rounded up or down to the nearest full increment and this revised amount will be considered your high bid. 24. When identical mail or FAX bids are submitted, preference is given to the first received. To ensure the greatest accuracy, written bids should be entered on the standard printed bid sheet and be received at RR Auction’s place of business at least twenty-four (24) hours before the Auction start. Auctioneer is not responsible for executing mail bids or FAX bids received on or after the day the first lot is sold, nor Internet bids submitted after the published closing time; nor is Auctioneer responsible for proper execution of bids submitted by telephone, mail, FAX, e-mail, Internet, or in person once the Auction begins. 25. In internet only Auctions, bids on an item must raise the current high bid by at least 10%. Bids will be accepted in whole dollar amounts only. No “buy” or “unlimited” bids will be accepted. In a live sale, bids on an item can change at the discretion of the auctioneer. 26. RR Auction reserves the right to accept or decline any bid. Bids must be for an entire lot and each lot constitutes a separate sale. All bids are per lot unless otherwise announced. Live auction lots will be sold in their numbered sequence unless the Auctioneer directs otherwise. It is unlawful and illegal for Bidders to collude, pool, or agree with another Bidder to pay less than the fair value for lot(s). Bidders participating in both live and online auctions acknowledge that the law provides for substantial penalties in the form of treble damages and attorneys’ fees and costs for those who violate these provisions. For live auctions the auctioneer will have final discretion in the event that any dispute should arise between bidders. The auctioneer will determine the successful bidder, cancel the sale, or re-offer and resell the lot or


lots in dispute. RR Auction will have final discretion to resolve any disputes arising after the sale and in online auctions. If any dispute arises our sale record is conclusive. Payment: 27. Subject to fulfillment of all of the Terms and Conditions of Sale set forth herein, at the close of the Auction, title to the offered lot will pass to the highest bidder acknowledged by RR Auction, and such bidder thereupon (a) assumes full risk and responsibility (including without limitation, liability for or damage to frames or glass covering prints, paintings, photos, or other works), and (b) will immediately pay the full purchase price or such part as we may require. In addition to other remedies available to RR Auction by law, RR Auction reserves the right to impose from the date of sale a late charge of 1.5% per month of the total purchase price if payment is not made in accordance with the conditions set forth herein. All property must be removed from RR Auction’s premises by the Bidder at his/her expense not later than thirteen (13) business days following its sale and if it is not so removed, (i) a handling charge of 1% of the total purchase price per month from the 13th day after the sale until its removal will be payable to RR Auction by the Bidder, with a minimum of 5% of the total purchase price for any property not so removed within 60 days after the sale, and (ii) RR Auction may send the purchased property to a public warehouse for the account, at the risk and expense of the Bidder. 28. Payment is due upon closing of the Auction session, or upon presentment of an invoice. Auctioneer reserves the right to void an invoice if payment in full is not received within thirteen (13) calendar days of the auction or within twelve (12) calendar days of the invoice date. In cases of nonpayment, Auctioneer’s election to void a sale does not relieve the Bidder from their obligation to pay Auctioneer its fees (seller’s and buyer’s premium) on the lot and any other damages pertaining to the lot. 29. All sales are strictly for cash in United States dollars (including U.S. currency, bank wire, cashier checks, eChecks, and bank money orders, and are subject to all reporting requirements). All deliveries are subject to good funds; funds being received in RR Auction’s account before delivery of the Purchases; and all payments are subject to a clearing period. RR Auction reserves the right to determine if a check constitutes “good funds”: checks drawn on a U.S. bank are subject to a ten (10) business day hold, and ten (10) days when drawn on an international bank. Clients with pre-arranged credit status may receive immediate credit for payments via Check, personal or corporate checks. All others will be subject to a hold of five (5) days, or more, for the funds to clear prior to releasing merchandise. 30. In the event that a Bidder’s payment is dishonored upon presentment(s), Bidder shall pay the maximum statutory processing fee set by applicable state law. If Bidder attempts to pay via Check and the financial institution denies the transfer from Bidder’s bank account, or the payment cannot be completed using the selected funding source, Bidder agrees to complete payment. 31. If any Auction invoice submitted by Auctioneer is not paid in full when due, the unpaid balance will bear interest at the highest rate permitted by law from the date of invoice until paid. Any invoice not paid when due will bear a one and one-half per cent (1.5%) late fee on the invoice amount. If the Auctioneer refers any invoice to an attorney for collection, the buyer agrees to pay attorney’s fees, court costs, and other collection costs incurred by Auctioneer. If Auctioneer assigns collection to its house counsel, such attorney’s time expended on the matter shall be compensated at a rate comparable to the hourly rate of independent attorneys. 32. If any applicable conditions herein are not complied with the Bidder will be in default and in addition to any and all other remedies available to RR Auction and the Consignor by law, including, without limitation, the right to hold the Bidder liable for the total purchase price, including all fees, charges and expenses more fully set forth herein, RR Auction, may (a) cancel the sale of that, or any other lots sold to the defaulting Bidder at the same or any other auction, retaining as liquidated damages all payments made by the Bidder, or (b) resell the purchased property, whether at public auction or by private sale, or (c) effect any combination thereof. In any case, the Bidder will be liable for any deficiency, any and all costs, handling charges, late charges, ex-

penses of both sales, RR Auction’s commissions on both sales at our regular rates, legal fees and expenses, collection fees and incidental damages. RR Auction may apply any proceeds of sale then due or thereafter becoming due to the Bidder from RR Auction or any affiliated company, or any payment made by the Bidder to RR Auction or any affiliated company, where or not intended to reduce the Bidder’s obligations with respect to the unpaid lot or lots, to the deficiency and any other amounts due to RR Auction or any affiliated companies. In addition, a defaulting Bidder will be deemed to have granted and assigned to RR Auction a continuing security interest of first priority in any property or money of RR Auction’s owing to such Bidder in RR Auction’s possession, and RR Auction may retain and apply such property or money as collateral security for the obligations due to RR Auction. Payment will not be deemed to have been made in full until RR Auction has collected good funds. In the event the Bidder fails to pay any or all of the total purchase price for any lot and RR Auction elects to pay the Consignor any portion of the sale proceeds, the Bidder acknowledges that RR Auction shall have all of the rights of the Consignor to pursue the Bidder for any amounts paid to the Consignor, whether at law, in equity, or under these Terms and Conditions of Sale. 33. Auctioneer shall have a lien against the merchandise purchased by the buyer to secure payment of the Auction invoice. Auctioneer is further granted a lien and the right to retain possession of any other property of the buyer then held by the Auctioneer or its affiliates to secure payment of any Auction invoice or any other amounts due the Auctioneer or affiliates from the buyer. With respect to these lien rights, Auctioneer shall have all the rights of a secured creditor, including but not limited to the right of sale. In addition, with respect to payment of the Auction invoice(s), the buyer waives any and all rights of offset he might otherwise have against the Auctioneer and the consignor of the merchandise included on the invoice. If a Bidder owes Auctioneer or its affiliates on any account, Auctioneer and its affiliates shall have the right to offset such unpaid account by any credit balance due Bidder, and it may secure by possessory lien any unpaid amount by any of the Bidder’s property in their possession. 34. Title shall not pass to the successful Bidder until all invoices are paid in full. It is the responsibility of the buyer to provide adequate insurance coverage for the items once they have been delivered to a common carrier or third-party shipper. 35. Please send PayPal payments to FinanceDepartment@rrauction. com. All checks, cashiers checks or money orders are payable to R&R Auction Company, LLC. Orders paid by cashier check, money order, wire, Pay Pal or credit card are shipped upon receipt. Wire Information: Account number: 003880291609 Company name: R & R Auction Company, LLC Routing/Transit (ABA) Number: 0260-0959-3 SWIFT Address: BOFAUS3N Bank Address: Bank of America 500 Amherst Street Nashua, NH 03063 Delivery; Shipping; and Handling Charges: 36. Bidder is liable for shipping and handling. Auctioneer is unable to combine purchases from other auctions or affiliates into one package for shipping purposes. Lots won will be shipped in a commercially reasonable time after payment in good funds for the merchandise and the shipping fees is received or credit extended, except when third-party shipment occurs. Bidder agrees that Service and Handling charges related to shipping items which are not pre-paid may be charged to the credit card on file with Auctioneer. 37. Successful international Bidders shall provide written shipping instructions, including specified Customs declarations, to the Auctioneer for any lots to be delivered outside of the United States. NOTE: Declaration value shall be the item’(s) hammer price together with its buyer’s premium and Auctioneer shall use the correct harmonized code for the lot. Domestic Buyers on lots designated for third-party shipment must designate the common carrier, accept risk of loss, and prepay shipping costs.


Title: 38. On the fall of the auctioneer’s hammer, title to the offered lot will pass to the highest bidder acknowledged by RR Auction but fully subject to Buyer’s compliance with all of the terms of the Conditions of Sale and the Registration Form. Rights Reserved: 39. RR Auction reserves the right to withdraw any lot before or at the time of the auction, and/or to postpone the auction of all or any lots or parts thereof, for any reason. RR Auction shall not be liable to any Bidder in the event of such withdrawal or postponement under any circumstances. RR Auction reserves the right to refuse to accept bids from anyone. Conducting the Auction: 40. RR Auction reserves the right to postpone the auction sale or any session thereof for a reasonable period of time for any reason whatsoever, and no Bidder or prospective Bidder shall have any claim as a result thereof, including consequential damages. 41. RR Auction reserves the right to withdraw any lot at any time, even after the hammer has fallen, until the Bidder has taken physical possession of the lot. No Consignor who has registered to bid at the sale (or at any other time unless otherwise provided in the consignment agreement), or any Bidder or prospective Bidder shall have a right to claim any consequential damages if a lot is withdrawn, even after the sale. 42. The highest qualified Bidder recognized by the Auctioneer shall be the Buyer. In the event of a tie bid, the earliest bid received or recognized wins. In the event of any dispute between any Bidders at an Auction, Auctioneer may at his sole discretion reoffer the lot. Auctioneer’s decision and declaration of the winning Bidder shall be final and binding upon all Bidders. Bids properly offered, whether by floor Bidder or other means of bidding, may on occasion be missed or go unrecognized; in such cases, the Auctioneer may declare the recognized bid accepted as the winning bid, regardless of whether a competing bid may have been higher. Auctioneer reserves the right after the hammer falls to accept bids and reopen bidding for bids placed through the Internet or otherwise. 43. Lots bearing bidding estimates shall open at Auctioneer’s discretion. In the event that no bid meets or exceeds that opening amount, the lot shall pass as unsold. 44. All items are to be purchased per lot as numerically indicated and no lots will be broken unless decided by RR Auction. Auctioneer reserves the right to withdraw, prior to the close, any lots from the Auction. 45. Auctioneer reserves the right to rescind the sale in the event of nonpayment, breach of a warranty, disputed ownership, failure to execute the reserve, auctioneer’s clerical error or omission in exercising bids and reserves, or for any other reason and in Auctioneer’s sole discretion. 46. Auctioneer occasionally experiences Internet and/or Server service outages, and Auctioneer periodically schedules system downtime for maintenance and other purposes, during which Bidders cannot participate or place bids. If such outages occur, RR Auction may at our discretion extend bidding for the Auction. Bidders unable to place their Bids through the Internet are directed to contact Client Services at 1-603-732-4280. 47. The Auctioneer has the right to sell certain unsold items after the close of the Auction. Such lots shall be considered sold during the Auction and all these Terms and Conditions shall apply to such sales including but not limited to the Buyer’s Premium, return rights, and disclaimers. Internet Auction – Extended bidding & the 30 Minute Rule: 48. Any bidder may bid on any lot prior to 6 pm. At that time, the Extended Bidding goes into effect. If you have not bid on a lot before 6 pm, you may not bid on that lot after 6 pm. Only those bidders who have placed bids on a lot before 6 pm will be allowed to bid on that lot after 6 pm. If you are the only bidder on a lot at 6 pm, that lot is awarded

to you. During the extended bidding period, a lot will remain open only to those who bid on that lot prior to 6 pm. All lots WITHOUT an opening bid at 6 pm will remain OPEN to ALL bidders until 7 pm or until they receive their first bid. These lots will close immediately upon receipt of a bid or at 7 pm, whichever comes first. For all lots that are active after 7 pm, bidding will remain open until 30 minutes pass without a bid being placed on THAT lot. The 30 Minute Rule is applied on a PER LOT BASIS; each lot in the auction closes individually based on bidding activity after 7 pm. On a PER LOT BASIS, the 30 minute timer will reset each time a bid is placed after 7 pm. If you are the high bidder, raising your maximum bid will NOT reset the timer. RR Auction reserves the right to close the auction at any time at its sole discretion. Auctioneer’s Discretion: 49. RR Auction shall determine opening bids and bidding increments. The auctioneer has the right in its absolute discretion to reject any bid in the event of dispute between bidders or if the auctioneer has doubt as to the validity of any bid, to advance the bidding at its absolute discretion and to determine the successful bidder in the event of a dispute between bidders, to continue the bidding or to reoffer and resell the lot in question. In the event of a dispute after the sale, RR Auction’s record of final sale shall be conclusive. The auctioneer also may reject any bid and withdraw the lot from sale if the auctioneer decides either that any opening bid is below the reserve of the lot or article or that an advance is insufficient. Unless otherwise announced by the auctioneer at the time of sale, no lots may be divided for the purpose of sale. Reserves: 50. Lots may be subject to a reserve which is the confidential minimum price below which the lot will not be sold. Consignors may not bid on their own lots or property. Off-Site Bidding: 51. Bidding by telephone, facsimile-transmission (fax-in), on-line, or absentee bidding (advance written bids submitted by mail) are offered solely as a convenience and permitted subject to advance arrangements, availability, and RR Auction’s approval which shall be exercised at RR Auction’s sole discretion. Neither RR Auction nor its agents or employees shall be held liable for the failure to execute bids or for errors relating to any transmission or execution thereof. In order to be considered for off-site bidding in any manner, Bidders must comply with all of these Conditions of Sale and the terms contained on the Registration Form. RR Auction’ Remedies: 52. Failure of the Bidder/Buyer to comply with any of these Conditions of Sale or the terms of the Registration Form is an event of default. In such event, RR Auction may, in addition to any other available remedies specifically including the right to hold the defaulting Bidder/Buyer liable for the Purchase Price or to charge and collect from the defaulting Bidder/Buyer’s credit or debit accounts as provided for elsewhere herein: (a) cancel the sale, retaining any payment made by the Buyer as damages (the Bidder/Buyer understands and acknowledges that RR Auction will be substantially damaged should such default occur, and that damages under sub-part (a) are necessary to compensate RR Auction for such damages; (b) resell the property without reserve at public auction or privately; (c) charge the Bidder/Buyer interest on the Purchase Price at the rate of one and one-half per cent (1.5%) per month or the highest allowable interest rate; (d) take any other action that RR Auction, in its sole discretion, deems necessary or appropriate to preserve and protect RR Auction’ rights and remedies. Should RR Auction resell the property, the original defaulting buyer shall be liable for the payment of any deficiency in the purchase price and all costs and expenses associated there with, including but not limited to warehousing, sales-related expenses, reasonable attorney fees and court costs, commissions, incidental damages and any other charges due hereunder which were not collected or collectable. In the event that such buyer is the successful bidder on more than one lot and pays less than the purchase price for the total lots purchased, RR Auction shall apply the payment received to such lot or lots that RR Auction, in its sole discretion, deems appropriate. If RR Auction does not exercise such discretion, the lots to which the payment shall be applied will be in descending order from the highest purchase price to the lowest. Any buyer failing to comply with these Conditions of Sale shall be deemed


to have granted RR Auction a security interest in, and RR Auction may retain as collateral such security for such buyer’s obligations to RR Auction, any property in RR Auction’ possession owned by such buyer. RR Auction shall have the benefit of all rights of a secured party under the Uniform Commercial Code (U.C.C.) as adopted by the state of New Hampshire. Warranties: 53. RR Auction does not provide any warranties to Bidders or Buyers, whether expressed or implied, beyond those expressly provided for in these Conditions of Sale. All property and lots are sold “as is” and “where is”. By way of illustration rather than limitation, neither RR Auction nor the consignor makes any representation or warranty, expressed or implied, as to merchant ability or fitness for intended use, condition of the property (including any condition report), correctness of description, origin, measurement, quality, rarity, importance, exhibition, relevance, attribution, source, provenance, date, authorship, condition, culture, genuineness, value, or period of the property. Additionally, neither RR Auction nor the consignor makes any representation or warranty, expressed or implied, as to whether the Buyer acquires rights in copyright or other intellectual property (including exhibition or reproduction rights) or whether the property is subject to any limitations or other rights. RR Auction does not make any representation or warranty as to title. 54. All descriptions, photographs, illustrations, and terminology including but not limited to words describing condition (including any condition reports requested by Bidder, see also Generally Terminology), authorship, period, culture, source, origin, measurement, quality, rarity, provenance, importance, exhibition, and relevance, used in the catalog, bill of sale, invoice, or anywhere else, represent a good faith effort made by RR Auction to fairly represent the lots and property offered for sale as to origin, date, condition, and other information contained therein; they are statements of opinion only. They are not representations or warranties and Bidder agrees and acknowledges that he or she shall not rely on them in determining whether or not to bid or for what price. Price estimates (which are determined well in advance of the auction and are therefore subject to revision) and condition reports are provided solely as a convenience to Bidders and are not intended nor shall they be relied on by Bidders as statements, representations or warranties of actual value or predictions of final bid prices. 55. Bidders are accorded the opportunity to inspect the lots and to otherwise satisfy themselves as to the nature and sufficiency of each lot prior to bidding, and RR Auction urges Bidders to avail themselves accordingly. 56. FIREARMS. Auctioneer complies with all Federal and State rules and regulations relating to the purchasing, registration and shipping of firearms. A Bidder is required to provide appropriate documents and the payment of associated fees, if any. Bidder is responsible for providing a shipping address that is suitable for the receipt of a firearm. Important Notice: Many identical versions of props and costumes are created for film and television productions in the normal course of a production. RR Auction does not warrant or represent that the screen shots referenced are exact images of the offered item (unless specifically noted in the written description). Use of a screen shot does not constitute a warranty or representation of authenticity or provenance. There is not a right of return or refund based upon a claim arising out of or pertaining to any reference to a screen shot. 57. Lots and property are not returnable to RR Auction for any reason except under Buyer’s limited Remedies set forth in Sections 58 and 59 below and under the express terms and conditions of Section 58. Limitation of Damages: 58. In the event that RR Auction is prevented for any reason from delivering any property to Buyer or Buyer is otherwise dissatisfied with the performance of RR Auction, the liability, if any, of RR Auction, shall be limited to, and shall not exceed, the amount actually paid for the property by Buyer. In no event shall RR Auction be liable for incidental, special, indirect, exemplary or consequential damages of any kind, including but not limited to loss of profits, value of investment or opportunity cost.

Unauthorized Statements: 59. Under no circumstances is any employee, agent or representative of RR Auction authorized by RR Auction to modify, amend, waive or contradict any of these Terms and Conditions of Sale, any term or condition set forth on the Registration Form, any warranty or limitation or exclusion of warranty, any term or condition in either the Registration Form or these Terms and Conditions regarding payment requirements, including but not limited to due date, manner of payment, and what constitutes payment in full, or any other term or condition contained in any documents issued by RR Auction unless such modification, amendment, waiver or contradiction is contained in a writing signed by all parties. Any statements, oral or written, made by employees, agents or representatives of RR Auction to Bidder, including statements regarding specific lots, even if such employee, agent or representative represents that such statement is authorized, unless reduced to a writing signed by all parties, are statements of personal opinion only and are not binding on RR Auction, and under no circumstances shall be relied on by Bidder as a statement, representation or warranty of RR Auction. Buyer’s Remedies: 60. Under no circumstance will RR Auction incur liability to a Bidder in excess of the purchase price actually paid. The terms and conditions of sale herein described shall be enforced in accordance with, and governed by the laws of the State of New Hampshire. 61. This section sets forth the sole and exclusive remedies of Buyer in conformity with Sections 51-55 (“Warranties”) and 56 (“Limitation of Damages”) herein, and is expressly in lieu of any other rights or remedies which might be available to Buyer by law. The Buyer hereby accepts the benefit of the consignor’s warranty of title and any other representations and warranties made by the consignor for the Buyer’s benefit. In the event that Buyer proves in writing to RR Auction satisfaction that there was a breach of the consignor’s warranty of title concerning a lot purchased by Buyer, RR Auction shall make demand upon the consignor to pay to Buyer the Purchase Price (including any premiums, taxes, or other amounts paid or due to RR Auction). Should the consignor not pay the Purchase Price to Buyer within thirty days after such demand, RR Auction shall disclose the identity of the consignor to Buyer and assign to Buyer all of RR Auction’ rights against the consignor with respect to such lot or property. Upon such disclosure and assignment, all responsibility and liability, if any, of RR Auction with respect to said lot or property shall automatically terminate. RR Auction shall be entitled to retain the premiums and other amounts paid to RR Auction - this remedy is as to the consignor only. The rights and remedies provided herein are for the original Buyer only and they may not be assigned or relied upon by any transferee or assignee under any circumstances. 62. All Lots sold by RR Auction are accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity. On any lot presented with a Certificate of Authenticity (“COA”) issued by RR Auction, that warranty insures only to the original Bidder (as shown in Auctioneer’s records) “Bidder”. Bidder may not transfer the rights afforded under the COA and it is null and void when Bidder transfers or attempts to transfer the lot. The COA warranty is valid from date of the auction in which Bidder was awarded the lot to five (5) years after its purchase. The COA warranty is valid as to its attribution to the person or entity described or to the lot’s usage. The Bidder as well as their heirs, successors and assigns is also given an unconditional lifetime guaranteed that allows the present owner of any lot purchased through RR Auction the right to consign with RR Auction. When the lot is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity (or its equivalent) from a third-party authentication provider, buyer has no right of return. On lots not accompanied by third-party authentication or under extremely limited circumstances not including authenticity (e.g. gross cataloging error), a Bidder who did not bid from the floor may request Auctioneer to evaluate voiding a sale; such request must be made in writing detailing the alleged gross error, and submission of the lot to Auctioneer must be pre-approved by Auctioneer. A Bidder must notify the appropriate department head in writing of the Bidder’s request within three (3) days of the non-floor bidder’s receipt of the lot. Any lot that is to be evaluated for return must be received at the office of RR Auction within 35 days after Auction. AFTER THAT 35 DAY PERIOD, NO LOT MAY BE RETURNED FOR ANY REASONS. Lots


returned must be in the same condition as when sold and must include any Certificate of Authenticity. If a bidder wishes to challenge the Letter of Authenticity within the five (5) year warranty period, Bidder must present with the claim, authoritative written evidence that the lot is not authentic as determined by a known expert in the field. If Auctioneer concurs that the lot is not as represented, Bidder shall be refunded their purchase price. If the Auctioneer denies the claim, the Bidder may file the dispute with the American Arbitration Association with locale in Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, before a single selected Arbitrator selected by the American Arbitration Association. The American Arbitration Association arbitration shall be conducted under the provisions of the Federal Arbitration Act and the Bidder consents to jurisdiction in the State of New Hampshire. The challenge to Authenticity must be brought within one (1) year if the Auctioneer denies the claim. After one (1) year, the Bidder hereby releases and discharges RR Auction from any and all legal, equitable, administrative and/or other claims, counterclaims, demands, setoffs, defenses, accounts, suits, debts, dues, actions, causes of action, proceedings, arbitrations, damages, executions, judgments, findings, controversies and disputes, whether known or unknown or suspected or unsuspected, whether in law or equity, that the Bidder have or may have had against RR Auction arising from or relating to any claim whatsoever. Specifically, the COA provided by RR Auction, 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 is subject to such issuing entity’s rules and such conditions are the sole remedy afforded to Bidder. For information as to third party authentication warranties the bidder is directed to contact RR Auction. RR Auction’ Additional Services: 63. For Buyers who do not remove purchased property from RR Auction’ premises, RR Auction, in its sole discretion and solely as a service and accommodation to Buyers, may arrange to have purchased lots packed, insured and forwarded at the sole request, expense, and risk of Buyer. RR Auction assumes no and disclaims all responsibility and liability for acts or omissions in such packing or shipping by RR Auction or other packers and carriers, whether or not recommended by RR Auction. RR Auction assumes no and disclaims all responsibility and liability for damage to frames, glass or other breakable items. Where RR Auction arranges and bills for such services via invoice or credit card, RR Auction will include an administration charge. Headings: 64. Headings are for convenience only and shall not be used to interpret the substantive sections to which they refer. Entire Agreement: 65. These Conditions of Sale constitute the entire agreement between the parties together with the terms and conditions contained in the Registration Form. They may not be amended, modified or superseded except in a signed writing executed by all parties. No oral or written statement by anyone employed by RR Auction or acting as agent or representative of RR Auction may amend, modify, waive or supersede the terms herein unless such amendment, waiver or modification is contained in a writing signed by all parties. 66. If any section of these Terms and Conditions of Sale or any term or provision of any section is held to be invalid, void, or unenforceable by any court of competent jurisdiction, the remaining sections or terms and provisions of a section shall continue in full force and effect without being impaired or invalidated in any way. 67. These Terms and Conditions of Sale and the auction shall be construed and enforced in accordance with, and governed by, the laws of the State of New Hampshire, whether or not the auction is and these Terms and Conditions of Sale are fully performed in New Hampshire.

AUCTION GENERAL GUIDELINES Conditions of Sale: Before you bid, you must read the Terms and Conditions of Sale, immediately preceding these pages. They represent a contract between RR Auction and you, and they contain important terms and conditions

such as jurisdiction, payment terms, warranties and remedies. The Conditions of Sale are controlling over these general guidelines in the event of any conflicts between their respective terms. Estimate Prices: In addition to descriptive information, each item in the catalog sometimes includes a price range which reflects opinion as to the price expected at auction. In other instances, estimate prices can be obtained by calling RR Auction at (603) 732-4280. The Estimate Prices are based upon various factors including prices recently paid at auction for comparable property, condition, rarity, quality, history and provenance. Estimates are prepared well in advance of the sale and subject to revision. Estimates do not include the buyer’s premium or sales tax (see under separate heading). Reserves: The reserve is the minimum price the seller is willing to accept and below which a lot will not be sold. Owned or Guaranteed Property: RR Auction generally offers property consigned by others for sale at public auction; in very limited occasion, lots are offered that are the property of RR Auction. Buyer’s Premium and Sales Tax: The actual purchase price will be the sum of the final bid price plus the buyer’s premium of 20% of the hammer price plus applicable shipping, convenience and handling charges. In addition, there will be an additional 2.5% buyer’s Premium for Bidders who chose to pay via credit card or Paypal for invoices of $5,000 or less. Before the Auction: You may attend pre-sale viewing for all of our auctions at no charge. All property to be auctioned is usually on view for several days prior to the sale. You are encouraged to examine lots thoroughly. You may also request condition reports (see below). RR Auction’s staff are available at viewings and by appointment. Contact Information: 5 Rt 101A, Suite 5 • Amherst, NH 03031 Local/International: 1-603-732-4280 Local/Int’l fax: 1-603-732-4288 Website: www.RRAuction.com Email bidding: Bid@RRAuction.com Hours of Operation: Office hours are Mon-Fri, 9 a.m. -5 p.m. eastern standard time; hours on the last night of the auction are dictated by the 30 Minute Rule (see below). Any item in the auction can be viewed in our offices during normal business hours. Please call to set up an appointment. You must acknowledge having read your agreement with all of the Terms and Conditions of Sale prior to your registration and prior to your bidding on any lot. Bidding Live Auction: Property is auctioned in consecutive numerical order, as it appears in the catalog. The auctioneer will accept bids from those present in the salesroom or absentee bidders participating by telephone, internet or by written bid left with RR Auction in advance of the auction. The auctioneer may also execute a bid on behalf of the consignor to protect the reserve, either by entering a bid in response to salesroom, telephone or absentee bids. Under no circumstances will the auctioneer place any bid on behalf of the consignor at or above the reserve. The auctioneer will not specifically identify bids placed on behalf of the consignor to protect the reserve. Maximum Bids – Internet Auction Only: To maximize your chance of winning, we strongly encourage the use of maximum bids. For example, assume an item you want currently has a high bid of $100. Your bid would then be $110 (10% over $100), and you could tell us, “I’d like a maximum bid of $242 for that item.” We will enter your bid at $110, and we will then bid for you until the lot reaches your maximum of $242. If competitive bids only reach $148, you would win the item at $163—10% over the highest previous bid. To prevent


tie bids, all maximum bids should be made in proper increments. Maximum bids are strictly confidential. Placing arbitrary, non-incremental bids on lots with prior maximum bids may result in these lots being sold for less than 10% above the under bidder’s bid. Bid Increments: Bids on an item must raise the current high bid by at least 10% or at the discretion of the auctioneer. Checking Bids – Internet Auction Only: You can open, monitor, and/or raise bids as often as you wish. However, all bidding is governed by the 30 Minute Rule and extended bidding. Extended bidding always goes into effect at 6 pm on the last day of the auction. At 7 pm, the extended bidding ends and the 30 Minute Rule goes into effect. Callbacks – Internet Auction Only: RRAuction offers a callback service on auction night for any bidder who has the high bid on an item whose current bid is over $1,000 and who has placed a maximum bid. At your request, we will call you if your maximum bid is topped. We will need your correct telephone number(s) where you can be reached until the auction closes. Callbacks begin after 6 pm on auction night. You must request this service; it is not automatic. We make every effort to ensure that bidders who request a callback are contacted if outbid; however, we do not guarantee this service. Bidding - Internet Auction: To ensure proper registration, those Bidders intending to bid via the Internet must visit www.RRauction.com and register accordingly at least one full day prior to the actual auction. If you have questions about this feature, please call RR Auction well in advance of the auction. Winning bidders will be notified by RR Auction. RR Auction is not and cannot be responsible or liable for any problems, delays, or any other issues or problems resulting out of use of the Internet generally or specifically, including but not limited to transmission, execution or processing of bids. Bidding - Internet – Live Auction: During live Auctions, internet bids can be placed in real time through the following services: www.artfact.com and www.icollector.com. On some occasions beyond the control of RR Auction, the bid software or the Internet itself may not physically keep up with the pace of the auction. In order to help avoid disappointment, RR Auction recommends placing a realistic absentee bid now. Since Artfact and iCollector (hereinfafter referred to as “Third Party sites”) bids are not shown to RR Auction until RR Auction opens the lot on the floor, RR Auction treats those bids the same as floor or telephone bids. In most cases, however, the floor and/or telephone responds before the Third Party sites bid is presented, due to Live Internet bid software or Internet lag time, so for consistency it is RR Auction’ policy that floor bids and telephone bids are always considered first over Third Party sites bids with floor bids being considered before telephone bids. Also please note that all RR Auction lots purchased through the Third Party sites carry an additional Buyer’s Premium. RR Auction strongly urges the bidder to resolve any questions about these policies or their implementation PRIOR TO BIDDING. Successful Bids: The fall of the auctioneer’s hammer indicates the final bid. RR Auction will record the paddle number of the buyer. If your salesroom or absentee bid is successful, you will be notified after the sale by mailed or emailed invoice. Unsold Lots: If a lot does not reach the reserve, it is bought-in. In other words, it remains unsold and is returned to the consignor. The Auctioneer has the right to sell certain unsold items after the close of the Auction. Such lots shall be considered sold during the Auction and all these Terms and Conditions shall apply to such sales including but not limited to the Buyer’s Premium, return rights, and disclaimers. After the Auction - Payment: You are expected to pay for your purchases in full within thirteen (13) calendar days of the auction or within twelve (12) calendar days of the invoice date. (See Generally “Payment” §27 through 35 of the Term

and Conditions of Sale). Shipping: After payment has been made in full, RR Auction may, as a service to buyers, arrange to have property packed, insured and shipped at your request and expense. For shipping information, please contact RR Auction at (603) 732-4280. In circumstances in which RR Auction arranges and bills for such services via invoice or credit card, we will also include an administration charge. Packages shipped internationally will have full value declared on shipping form. (See Generally “Delivery; Shipping; and Handling Charges” §36 and 37 of the Term and Conditions of Sale). At our discretion, some orders of high value may be sent via overnight or two-day service. Insurance is added to each invoice, with a minimum of $2 for the first $200 of value and 55¢ per $100 of value over $200. Oversized orders will have additional postage added to their invoices. Within the United States, rates for shipping and handling only are: $0–$100..........................................$10 $101–$500.......................................$15 $501–$1,000....................................$20 $1,001–$3,000.................................$35 $3,001–$10,000...............................$45 Over $10,000.................................$100 Additional Cataloging, Warranties and Disclaimers: NO WARRANTY, WHETHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, IS MADE WITH RESPECT TO ANY DESCRIPTION CONTAINED IN THIS AUCTION OR ANY SECOND OPINE. Any description of the items or second opinion contained in this Auction is for the sole purpose of identifying the items for those Bidders who do not have the opportunity to view the lots prior to bidding, and no description of items has been made part of the basis of the bargain or has created any express warranty that the goods would conform to any description made by Auctioneer. Color variations can be expected in any electronic or printed imaging, and are not grounds for the return of any lot. Auctioneer is selling only such right or title to the items being sold as Auctioneer may have by virtue of consignment agreements on the date of auction and disclaims any warranty of title to the Property. Auctioneer disclaims any warranty of merchantability or fitness for any particular purposes. All images, descriptions, sales data, and archival records are the exclusive property of Auctioneer, and may be used by Auctioneer for advertising, promotion, archival records, and any other uses deemed appropriate. Release: In consideration of participation in the Auction and the placing of a bid, Bidder expressly releases Auctioneer, its officers, directors and employees, its affiliates, and its outside experts that provide second opinion, from any and all claims, cause of action, chose of action, whether at law or equity or any arbitration or mediation rights existing under the rules of any professional society or affiliation based upon the assigned description, or a derivative theory, breach of warranty express or implied, representation or other matter set forth within these Terms and Conditions of Auction or otherwise. In the event of a claim, Bidder agrees that such rights and privileges conferred therein are strictly construed as specifically declared herein; e.g., authenticity, gross cataloging error, etc. and is the exclusive remedy. Bidder, by non-compliance to these express terms of a granted remedy, shall waive any claim against Auctioneer. Some Property sold by Auctioneer are inherently dangerous e.g. firearms, and items that may be swallowed or ingested or may have latent defects all of which may cause harm to a person. Bidder accepts all risk of loss or damage from its purchase of these items and Auctioneer disclaims any liability whether under contract or tort for damages and losses, direct or inconsequential, and expressly disclaims any warranty as to safety or usage of any lot sold. Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Provision: Bidder and RR Auction agree that any agreements between the Bidder and RR Auction including but not limited to these Conditions of Sale are entered into in Amherst, New Hampshire, which is where the agreements are to be performed and the auction to take place,


no matter where Bidder is situated and no matter by what means or where Bidder was informed of the auction and regardless of whether catalogs, materials, or other communications were received by Bidder in another location. Both RR Auction and the Bidder agree that any disputes under these Conditions of Sale, the subject matter hereof, the entering into, or any aspect of the auction, shall be exclusively governed by New Hampshire law, and that any and all claims or actions shall be brought and maintained only in Hillsborough County, New Hampshire. THE PARTIES EXPRESSLY WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY. The Bidder hereby consents that any dispute shall be presented in confidential binding arbitration before a single selected Arbitrator selected by the American Arbitration Association. The Bidder and RR Auction herby agree that the dispute shall go to binding arbitration in accordance with the commercial rules of the American Arbitration Association. The American Arbitration Association arbitration shall be conducted under the provisions of the Federal Arbitration Act and the Bidder consents to jurisdiction in the State of New Hampshire. Any dispute, claim, cause of action must be brought within one (1) year of the alleged breach, default or misrepresentation or the claim is waived. After one (1) year, the Bidder hereby releases and discharges RR Auction from any and all legal, equitable, administrative and/or other claims, counterclaims, demands, setoffs, defenses, accounts, suits, debts, dues, actions, causes of action, proceedings, arbitrations, damages, executions, judgments, findings, controversies and disputes, whether known or unknown or suspected or unsuspected, whether in law or equity, that the Bidder have or may have had against RR Auction arising from or relating to any claim whatsoever. Both Bidder and RR Auction agree that these provisions are intended to be binding on all parties in the event of any dispute specifically including third party claims and cross-actions brought by either RR Auction or Bidder, and that absent such agreement, RR Auction would not permit Bidder to bid hereunder. Any violation of the terms of this Paragraph shall entitle RR Auction to reasonable attorney fees and litigation costs in addition to all other available remedies, all of which remain reserved. The Bidder hereby agrees that RR Auction shall be entitled to present these Conditions of Sale to a court in any jurisdiction other than set forth in this paragraph as conclusive evidence of the parties’ agreement, and the parties further agree that the court shall immediately dismiss any action filed in such jurisdiction. An award granted in arbitration is enforceable in any court of competent jurisdiction. The arbitrator’s award may be enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction. This agreement and any claims shall be determined and construed under New Hampshire law. Miscellaneous: Agreements between Bidders and consignors to effectuate a non-sale of an item at Auction, inhibit bidding on a consigned item to enter into a private sale agreement for said item, or to utilize the Auctioneer’s Auction to obtain sales for non-selling consigned items subsequent to the Auction, are strictly prohibited. If a subsequent sale of a previously consigned item occurs in violation of this provision, Auctioneer reserves the right to charge Bidder the applicable Buyer’s Premium and consignor a Seller’s Commission as determined for each auction venue and by the terms of the seller’s agreement. Acceptance of these Terms and Conditions qualifies Bidder as a client who has consented to be contacted by RR Auction in the future. In conformity with “do-not-call” regulations promulgated by the Federal or State regulatory agencies, participation by the Bidder is affirmative consent to being contacted at the phone number shown in his application and this consent shall remain in effect until it is revoked in writing. RR Auction may from time to time contact Bidder concerning sale, purchase, and auction opportunities available. Rules of Construction: Auctioneer presents properties in a number of collectible fields, and as such, specific venues have promulgated supplemental Terms and Conditions. Nothing herein shall be construed to waive the general Terms and Conditions of Auction by these additional rules and shall be construed to give force and effect to the rules in their entirety.

TERMINOLOGY

Condition: Each item in the catalog is described with a statement of opinion indicating its overall condition. The condition of the items we offer generally falls into the following range: good—very good—fine—very fine. Treated as a scale of 1 to 4, good describes an item that has as many as several flaws, which are described in detail; very fine describes an item whose condition and appearance may be regarded as flawless and superior in every respect. Most of the items we offer are in fine condition, meaning that there are no serious flaws. While we make every effort to describe flaws that materially affect appearance and value, we generally do not specify minor or routine flaws, such as (but not limited to) pencil or secretarial notations, mailing folds to letters, normal aging to paper, or tiny bends or creases from normal handling. We encourage prospective bidders to examine the image(s) of each item closely and to contact us with specific inquiries regarding condition. Group Lots: In descriptions of group lots of two or more items, every effort is made to mention any obvious flaws. Bidders should note that condition for group lots is given as a general statement or range, and that specific flaws to single items within the group may be omitted in the interest of catalog space. Questions about group lots, or specific items within a group lot, should be addressed before the close of the auction to Stacey Jordan (Stacey.Jordan@RRAuction.com). Matted and Framed: Many of the items offered for sale in our monthly auctions are described as matted and/or framed. We do not remove items from frames; the given dimensions of items housed in a frame and/or mat indicate sight size only. Photographs and other ephemera used with matted and framed items are not subject to description and condition statements, nor are they considered a reason for return. Condition refers only to the item and not the mat or frame. Our terms of return apply only to the item and not the matting and framing. Any item that is removed from the frame cannot be returned. Returns are only accepted when there is an authenticity question or the description of the item is incorrect.
