If you are the successful and winning bidder, you have entered into a legally binding contract to purchase the property bid on from the seller. You should contact the seller to resolve any questions before bidding. BUYER'S PREMIUM There is a Buyer's Premium of 17.5%. CONDITION All items are offered "as is." There is no return privilege, and all sales are final. We have sought to express carefully in our catalogue a useful, general guide to the condition of each Lot. We have also attempted to describe any damage or restoration, but our descriptions can not be accepted as absolutely definitive and complete. The absence of such a reference does not imply that a Lot is free from defects nor does any reference to particular defects imply the absence of others. Such information is given for guidance only and the condition of any Lot, and the nature and extent of any damage or restoration, should be confirmed by examination prior to the sale. In terms of function, common sense should prevail. While we have tried to call attention to conspicuous mechanical or optical problems, one should assume that many of the Lots have seen little recent use and, therefore, have not recently been cleaned, lubricated, or adjusted. This means that many Lots, especially older cameras, might have shutter speeds and/or light meters that might need adjusting, and that lenses and other optical items might require lubrication and/or cleaning. ESTIMATES & RESERVES The estimated prices in the catalogue descriptions are the approximate prices expected to be realized, excluding Buyer's Premium. They are prepared well in advance of the auction sale and are subject to revision. Furthermore, they are not definitive and meant only to represent general guidelines. Every item in the auction has a private "reserve" price. Bidding by E-Mail, Fax, or regular Mail. We are pleased to make commission bids on your behalf. All e-mail/mail/fax/ bids must be received by 5:00 PM on Friday, January 26, 2007. Please state clearly your name, address, telephone numbers, fax numbers, date, email address, credit card number, and signature. Also list the lot number or numbers for which you would like to bid as well as your bid. Bidders who bid by mail or fax or e-mail will receive an invoice after the auction if their bids are successful. Please note that all letter and fax bids and e-mail bids will be executed at the lowest possible price. Tamarkin Photographica will treat mail/fax/e-mail bids as the maximum price which the Buyer is willing to pay and will bid only enough to exceed the reserve price or the next previous bid. VIEWING All lots are available for inspection prior to the sale. Please note the viewing schedule. Our staff will attempt to answer questions and give advice, but the final decision to bid, and the amount to bid, is at your discretion and liability. ABSENTEE CONDITION REPORTS If you are unable to attend the sale and would like information on a Lot that is not described adequately in the catalogue, please send us a fax, call, or write us. We will endeavor to answer your queries. LOCAL TAXES There is a tax of 8.375% tax which is due on all sales delivered in New York. A 6% tax is due on all deliveries made in Connecticut. However, all lots that are delivered outside New York or Connecticut are not charged any local taxes. This means that if purchases at the auction are shipped to the buyer outside the states of New York and Connecticut, then the total amount due will be without taxes, only the winning bid price, plus the 17.5% Buyer's Premium, plus the freight expense. Bank transfers may be made to: TAMARKIN PHOTOGRAPHICA, LLC HUDSON UNITED BANK 2992 Dixwell Avenue Hamden, Connecticut 06518 Account Number: 0100116205 Bank Routing Number: 011103093 SHIPPING Shipments are generally made by US Express Air Mail Parcel Post, or by United Parcel Service (UPS) at our discretion. Delivery charges include the actual cost of freight and insurance, plus a modest fee for packing and handling.
