2.2 The contract for the sale of the Lot will be between you and the Seller. 3 BEFORE THE SALE 3.1 Examination of goods You are strongly advised to examine personally any goods in which you are interested, before the auction takes place. Conditionreportsare usually available on request. We provide no guarantee to you other than in relation to Forgeries, as set out in clause 5.10 of these Terms andConditions. 3.2 Catalogue descriptions 3.2.1 Statements by us in the catalogue or condition report, or made orally or in writing elsewhere, regarding the authorship, origin, date, age, size,medium, attribution, genuineness, provenance, condition or estimated selling price of any Lot are merely statements of opinion, and are not to be relied on as statements of definitive fact. Catalogue illustrations are for guidance only, and should not be relied on either to determine thetone or colour of any item or to reveal imperfections. Estimates of the selling price should not be relied on as a statement that this price is either the price at which the Lot will sell or its value for any other purpose. 3.2.2 Many items are of an age or nature which precludes their being in perfect condition and some descriptions in the catalogue or given by way of condition report make reference to damage and/or restoration. We provide this information for guidance only and the absence of such a reference does not imply that an item is free from defects or restoration nor does a reference to particular defects imply the absence of anyothers. 3.2.3 Other than as set out in clause 5.8, and in the absence of fraud, neither the Seller nor we, nor any of our employees or agents, are responsiblefor the correctness of any statement as to the authorship, origin, date, age,

We reserve the right, at our discretion, to refuse a request for anexpert opinion or Certificate of Authenticity including (without limitation) where the proposed expert is not known to us. 3.4.3 If we accept a request for an expert opinion or Certificate of Authenticity we will submit the Lot to the Expert Committee.

4 AT THE SALE

4.9 Bidding Increments Bidding generally opens below the low estimate and advances in the following order although the auctioneer may vary the bidding increments during the course of the auction. The normal bidding increments are:

4.1 Refusal of admission Our sales usually take place on our own premises or premises over which we have control for the sale, and we have the right, exercisable at our complete discretion, to refuse admission to the premises or attendance at an auction. 4.2 Registration before bidding You must complete and sign a registration form and provide identification before making a bid at auction. Please be aware that we usually require buyers to undergo a credit check. Some lots may be designated, prior to the auction, as “Premium lots”, which means a deposit may be required before placing a bid on the item for sale. Information will be posted on our website in such an event. 4.3 Bidding as Principal When making a bid (whether such bids are made in person or by way of telephone bids operated by Spink, commission or online or email bids), you will be deemed to be acting as principal and will be accepting personal liability, unless it has been agreed in writing, at the time of registration, that youare acting as agent on behalf of a third party buyer acceptable to us. 4.4 Commission Bids If you give us instructions to bid on your behalf, by using the form provided in our catalogues or via our website, we shall use reasonable endeavors to do so, provided these instructions are received not later than 24 hours before the auction. If we receive commission bids on a particular Lot for identical amounts, and at auction these bids are the highest bids for the Lot, it will be sold to the person whose bid was received first. Commission bids are undertaken subject to other commitments at the time of the sale, and the conduct of the auction may be such that we are unable to bid as requested. Since this is undertaken as a free service to prospective buyers on the terms stated, we cannot accept liability for failure to make a commission bid. You should therefore always attend personally if you wish to be certain of bidding. All commission bids should be sent to 9/F Malaysian Consulate Building, 50 Gloucester Road, Hong Kong up till 24 hours prior to the sale. 4.5 On-line Bidding We offer internet services as a convenience to our clients. We will not be responsible for errors or failures to execute bids placed on the internet, including, without limitation, errors or failures caused by (i) a loss of internet connection by either party for whatever reason; (ii) a breakdown or problems with the online bidding software and/or (iii) a breakdown or problems with your internet connection, computer or system. Execution of on-line internet bids is a free service undertaken subject to other commitments at the time of the auction and we do not accept liability for failing to execute an online internet bid or for errors or omissions in connection with this activity. 4.6Telephone Bids If you make arrangements with us not less than 24 hours before the sale, we shall use reasonable endeavors to contact you to enable you to participate in bidding by telephone, but in no circumstances will we be liable to either the Seller or you as a result of failure to do so. 4.7 Currency Converter At some auctions, a currency converter will be operated, based on the one month forward rates of exchange quoted to us by Bank of China orany other appropriate rate determined by us, at opening on the date of the auction. Bidding will take place in a currency determined by us,which is usually Hong Kong dollars for auctions held in Hong Kong. The currency converter is not always reliable, and errors may occur beyond our control either in the

HK$500 to HK$2,000 by HK$100 HK$2,000 to HK$3,000 by HK$200 HK$3,000 to HK$5,000 by HK$200 or HK$300 HK$5,000 to HK$10,000 by HK$500 HK$10,000 to HK$20,000 by HK$1,000 HK$20,000 to HK$30,000 by HK$2,000 HK$30,000 to HK$50,000 by HK$2,000 or HK$3,000 HK$50,000 to HK$100,000 by HK$5,000 HK$100,000 to HK$ 200,000 by HK$10,000 HK$200,000 to HK$300,000 by HK$20,000 HK$300,000 and up at Auctioneer’s discretion 4.10 Bidding by the Spink Group 4.10.1 We reserve the right to bid on Lots on the Seller’s behalf up to the amount of the Reserve (if any), which will never be above the low estimate printed in the auction catalogue. 4.10.2 The Spink Group reserves the right to bid on and purchase Lots as principal. 4.11 The Auctioneer’s Discretion The auctioneer has the right at his absolute discretion to refuse any bid to advance the bidding in such manner as he may decide to withdrawor divide any Lot, to combine any two or more Lots and, in the case of error or dispute, to put an item up for bidding again. 4.12 Successful Bid Subject to the auctioneer’s discretion, the striking of his hammer marks the acceptance of the highest bid, provided always that such bid is higher than the Reserve (where applicable), and the conclusion of a contract for sale between you and the Seller. 4.13 After Sale Arrangements If you enter into any private sale agreements for any Lot with the Seller within 60 days of the auction, we, as exclusive agents of the Seller reserve the right to charge you the applicable Buyer’s Premium in accordance with these Terms and Conditions, and the seller a commission in accordance with the terms of the seller’s agreement. 4.14 Return of Lot Once your bid has been accepted for a Lot then you are liable to payfor that Lot in accordance with these Terms and Conditions.

1 The Historically Important and Unique Order of the Blue Sky and White Sun Attributed to Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek, Order of the Blue Sky and White Sun, breast badge, 58mm, silver, silver-gilt, and enamel, central medallion portraying the Chinese Sun on a blue background surrounded by a band of gold, reverse officially numbered in Chinese characters “Special One”, minor enamel flaking, therefore nearly very fine, with riband.

The Order of the Blue Sky and White Sun was instituted on May 11, 1929 as an award of valor to members of the Chinese Armed Forces in times of War, and comes in one class. Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek’s badge, awarded to him in 1930, is unique in that the reverse bears the inscription “Special One” instead of the usual sequential serial number. He was often seen and photographed with it on, regarded as one of his most favorite medals. HK$6,000,000-7,000,000
