Questions & Answers
Whether you are a new or previous bidder, you may wish to know . . .
Q. How do I know how much to bid?
A. The values indicated with each lot show a range, based on market values for same or similar items. Your bid need not be confined to these figures; however, keep in mind that items may sell below or above the range.
Q. May I raise my bid once I have submitted it?
Q. If I have a certain amount to spend, and wish to bid on a number of lots, how can this be reconciled?
A. List your bids as first, second, third, etc. choices, and state the total dollar amount not to be exceeded.
Q. If I wish to raise my bid, by what amount is the raise?
A. By any amount. However, if the current high bid is given to you, then the minimum raise is 10%.
Q. Can I find out what the high bid is on any lot?
A. Yes. (Please note, though, that on closing day bids may change so rapidly that there may be a recording backlog.)
Q. Will I pay my high bid?
A. No. Your buying price is 10% over the second-highest bid, regardless of what your high bid is.
Q. Can I pay by credit card?
A. Yes. We now accept Discover, MasterCard, and Visa (see “Sale Provisions”).
Q. Can I get additional information on any lot?
A. Yes. Call or write for more details, photocopy, or answers to your questions; such inquiries should be made before closing date. It may not be possible to retrieve lots for such requests on closing day.
