Webb’s Auctions retains all rights to copyright and other intellectual property contained in this auction. 2. Buyer’s Premium, Purchase Price, Taxes, and Billing Buyer’s Premium: All bidding at auction and all purchases will be in U.S. Dollars. A buyer’s premium in the amount of 17% of the successful high bid will be added to the amount of the successful bid price for all lots purchased at auction via the Internet with payment involving credit card. A buyer’s premium in the amount of 15% of the successful high bid will be added to the amount of the successful bid price for all lots purchased at auction via the Internet with cash, money order or check payments. Purchase Price: Upon the announcement by the auctioneer, the successful bidder becomes the purchaser and is responsible for the amount of the successful bid, the buyer’s premium, applicable taxes, and other charges provided for in the Terms of Sale. Taxes: Applicable taxes shall include Indiana sales tax (6%), use tax, excise tax, and other taxes or levies. Only valid resale certificates are accepted as proof of exemption from Indiana sales tax by U.S. dealers. No Indiana sales tax is charged for purchases shipped out of state. Billing: All successful bidders will be sent invoices by mail or email within 7 days of the end of auction. 3. Methods of Payment and Fees Acceptable methods of payment: Cash. Check. Money Order.

We reserve the right to hold all goods paid for by check until payment has cleared. Late Payment Charge: If payment is not received within thirty (30) days of sale, Webb’s Auctions, reserves the right to impose from the date of sale a late charge of 1 1/2% a month of the total purchase price and deny all future credit. 4. Qualifying to Bid New Buyers: If you are not known to us, you may be asked to furnish identification, a valid credit card number, and, possibly, credit references. If you are acting as another’s agent or principal, we may request a letter of authorization. If paying by check, you must establish credit at least three (3) business days prior to the auction. A letter from your bank, presented before the sale, may also be accepted, at our discretion, although we may retain your purchase(s) until the check clears. If you are successful and do not remit payment within thirty (30) days, the balance will be charged to your credit card together with such charges set forth in these terms of sale. 5. Bidding Increments: 0 – 49 = $ 5 50 – 249 = $ 10 250 – 999 = $ 25 1000 – 1999 = $ 50 2000 - 4999 = $ 100 5000 – 10000 = $ 250 The auctioneer has the sole and exclusive power, discretion, and authority to regulate the bidding and its increments. 6. Absentee Bids We accept absentee bids by phone, by mail, in person, or by fax. Absentee bids are requested no later than 5:00 p.m. the day before the auction. If you fax your absentee bids, please call us to confirm receipt. All absentee bidding is handled as though you are in attendance. We will buy all designated lots for you at the bidding increment just above where competition stops. Please check and comply with these increments. All unreserved bidding starts at 50% of the low estimate unless there are two or more competing absentee bids at a price higher than that. (For example, a lot estimated at $400–$600, with no reserve, will normally open at $200. If there are two absentee bids for $300 and $500, the lot must sell for $300, even if there is no further bidding from the phone, later absentee ballots, or from the live audience. In such a case, we will open the bidding at close to the low estimate.) "Plus" bids: Because of our structured bidding increments, it is more likely that several people will leave identical bids. Since an earlier bid wins in the event of a tie, a later bid with an added "plus" bid to the next increment would win the piece. All absentee bidder names and bids are held in strictest confidence, disclosed only in the event of a question after the sale. Absentee bidding is a convenience offered to our customers and, while we will make every effort to execute your instructions, Webb’s Auctions is not liable or responsible for any errors or failure to do so. 7. Telephone Bids Determine the lots on which you most want to bid before contacting us. If you need condition reports, please request and review them prior to making a bid. We will call you at one phone number ONLY during the auction. If you are unsure of where you or your agent will be during the sale, we recommend you leave absentee bids. All requests for overseas telephone lines must be accompanied by absentee bids, which will be executed on the buyer's behalf, should there be any problems with telephone connections. Your phone number and lots will be confirmed the day before the auction. Please do not change your phone number after your phone lines have been confirmed; if you do, Webb’s Auctions will not be responsible for any breakdown in communications. We strongly recommend land lines, as, to date, they are more reliable than cellular phones. One of the reasons people bid by phone is to monitor how much they're spending. However, if you bid by phone, you must be willing to bid to the low estimate should the bidding go that far. There is no exception to this rule. You may, however, leave absentee bids for any amount. Bids are placed on the telephone at the discretion of Webb’s Auctions, and at the caller’s risk. Telephone bidding is a convenience offered to our customers and, while we will make every effort to execute your instructions, Webb’s Auctions is not liable or responsible for any errors or failure to do so. 8. Auctioneer’s Determination Final A lot will be sold to the highest bidder as determined in the sole and exclusive judgment of the auctioneer. The auctioneer will also have the sole and exclusive power and authority to a) resolve any disputes between bidders, b) determine whether to pass or re-offer a lot for sale c) reject or challenge any bid or advance in the bidding, and d) otherwise regulate the bidding and its increments. 9. Reserves A reserve is the confidential minimum price established between Webb’s Auctions and the consignor. Webb’s Auctions prohibits consignors from bidding on their own property, but may implement the reserve by bidding on behalf of the consignor at the auction up to the reserve. If bids on a lot fail to reach the reserve, the lot will be bought-in. 10. Estimates The estimates provided in this auction are our opinion of the price that a willing buyer would pay for the Property at auction. These estimates are opinion, based, where possible, on prices paid for comparable items sold in the past. They are neither a representation nor a prediction of the actual selling price that will be realized at auction, post-auction sale, or upon resale, which may be substantially different from these estimates. We shall not be liable in any way for such a difference. 11.
