Terms & Conditions
GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS & TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE 1. BUYER’S PREMIUM Bidders who bid at “on-line“ on the internet pay a 22.5% Buyers Premium. 2. CONDITION All items are offered “AS IS.” There is no return privilege, and all sales are final. We have sought to express a useful, general guide to the condition of each Lot. We have also attempted to describe any damage or restoration, but our descriptions cannot 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. 3. GUIDE TO RATINGS OF CONDITION New — Unused in original packaging with manufacturer’s warranty. Mint — Like new. No signs of use or wear. Near Mint — Only one or two insignificant signs of use. Ex++ — Excellent. Only very slight signs of use. Ex+ — Better than average. Used, but not abused. Ex — Average condition, signs of normal use. Very Good — Well used but working all right. Good — Heavily used. Poor — Bad condition. Probably only useful for parts. 4. RESERVES Every item in the auction has a private “reserve” price. 5. INTERNET BIDDING You will be able to bid, if you choose, in “real time” on-line during the auction. Internet bidders pay a Buyer’s Premium of 22.5%. 6. VIEWING All lots are available for inspection prior to the sale by appointment. 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. 7.
