Bidding

Submitting Bids

  1. We accept "mail" bids via mail, telephone, e-mail and BIDOPIA up until the date and time listed in each catalog. Please specify Lot # and Bid amount ($) for each bid.
  2. Limit – If you desire, indicate the upper limit of your total purchases on your bid form. In your determination of a limit remember all lots are sold in lot-number order.
  3. "OR" bids – You may place "OR" bids on several similar lots in hope of winning one. Place an "OR" between those lots on your bid sheet. Remember all lots are sold in lot number order, so preference for a lot can not be accepted.
  4. Bid cancellations will be accepted prior to an auction.
  5. The Auctioneer reserves the right to reject any bid, which in his opinion, is not offered in good faith.
