Two people may not grade<br /> the same item alike; and as market conditions change, grading standards<br /> may changes as well. Grading is an educated opinion; it is not an established<br /> fact. The grade and estimated value herein represent the opinion of Aurora<br /> and/ or its Consignor(s)/Sellers. Every Buyer’s individual examination of the<br /> item(s) is the determining factor and not the grade determined by others.<br /> Every reasonable effort is made by Aurora to ascertain provenance and<br /> authenticity. It is the Buyer’s responsibility to determine value prior to<br /> bidding. In any purchase or sale, the value of the item(s) is determined by<br /> the price.

Buyer’s Commission:<br /> A Buyer’s Commission on each individual lot will be added to all purchases<br /> made by Buyers, except for re-acquisitions by Consignors, regardless of<br /> affiliation with any group or organization, and will be based upon the total<br /> amount of the final bid.
