CONDITIONS OF SALE
Information For Bidders
In the right hand column of the catalog
we have given our opinion of the market value of the lot. These are not reserves
and lots may bring more or less than the evaluation.
Color scans of nearly all lots can be sent by email at no charge. Bids can be placed at any time via e-mail at...
PHOTOCOPIES of any Postal History lot can be
obtained by sending $1 per cover and a stamped, addressed envelope. Black &
white photocopies are 25¢ for two covers. If you wish photocopies of the
reverse, please add $1 (color) per cover or 25¢ (black & white) for two
covers. Photocopies of stamp lots, where feasible, can also be supplied. Our
color copier makes superb reproductions but it does take two minutes per copy.
Therefore, requests for more than 10 color copies are charged at the actual time
plus cost basis and must be agreed to beforehand.
Lots can be sent for inspection to
buyers known to us, or who supply adequate references, upon written application.
All such lots must be returned to us by registered mail, adequately insured, and
within 24 hours after receipt. The applicant assumes all responsibility for said
lots from time of receipt until they are actually received back by us, and is to
pay all expenses of postage and insurance. No lots can be sent for inspection
within ten days of the sale date. Large lots and collections cannot be sent for
bids can be placed by phone up to one hour before the start of the auction at
(310) 455-2300 or 1-800-445-4059.
When our offices are closed, a
telephone answering device is in operation. You can call us at (310) 455-2300
any hour, day or night. To place bids, please give us:
name and complete address
number and date
and carefully, your lot numbers and bids on each.
You can also give us a Visa,
MasterCard, or American Express number and expiration date, if you like. Please
do not forget to send us written confirmation of your bids by mail.
BIDS AND COPIES
Bids can be placed at any time by using
our FAX number: (310) 455-2303.
We will be glad to send by FAX copies
of suitable lots. The costs will be charged to your account. Please note that
most covers take approximately two minutes to send by FAX; overseas transmission
costs are approximately $1 per minute to Europe and $2 per minute to Asia.
Due to these costs, we recommend
sending your requests by FAX and having actual photocopies sent back by mail at
the more nominal costs printed above. Please specify which method you prefer
when making your request.
