Terms & Conditions
We have attempted to accurately describe all items being sold, but all property offered for sale is strictly 'as-is'. We have provided substantial images of all items offered to best inform potential absentee or online bidders with regards to item condition. It is the bidder's responsibility (whether in-person, by phone, by mail, or via the Internet) to determine the exact condition of each item. No statement in this catalog, sale bill, invoice, or other document by associates of The Artifact Company, LiveAuctioneers.com, or the Principle Auctioneer shall be deemed to warranty, or as representation or assumption of liability with respect to age, condition, size, quality, importance, rarity, variety, typology, provenance, or historical reference as related to any sale items. Any such statements are strictly matters of opinion. If an item already has a certificate of authenticity from one or more of the following artifact authenticators: Jackson, Stermer, Motley, Davis, Rogers, Dickey, Berner, Baker, Partain, Johnson, Cox, Howard, Tatum, Williams, Sievers, Meadows, E. Rowe, Putty, or Perino; the sale shall be considered final. Repeat - If an item already has a certificate of authenticity from one or more authenticators listed above the sale shall be considered final, NO EXCEPTIONS. Everything else (with the exception of items offered as 'decorative' or 'contemporary') is guaranteed for 30 days from auction date to paper as 'authentic' by any authenticator living and mentioned above. Differences of opinion amongst authenticators regards 'type' or 'material' will not qualify as reasons for a return. Any item eligible for return with request for refund must be accompanied with a full written report of the examination from the examiner. Authentication is a matter of scholarship and we welcome you to utilize the experience of your preferred expert for consultation prior to sale. You may arrange to have your expert inspect a potential purchase prior to a sale by calling 1-800-466-3836. Reserve and Buy-Back rules are in effect for this sale. ALL VALID RETURNS MUST BE APPROVED PRIOR TO RETURN BEFORE THE 30TH DAY AFTER THE AUCTION! IF YOU NEED ADDITIONAL TIME, YOU MUST ARRANGE FOR THIS IN ADVANCE! NO EXCEPTIONS! The Auctioneer (or in the case of Internet-only auctions - LiveAuctioneers Bidding Software) will be the final judge as to which bidder is the highest bidder. In event of any dispute in this matter the Auctioneer shall use his own discretion to decide whether to reopen bidding or not. Title to all merchandise shall pass to the highest bidder at the fall of the Auctioneer's "Hammer." The Paper records of the clerk are the true record of sale under Kentucky State Law, regardless of conflicting information reported by the LiveAuctioneers.com bidding service. After a sale, all winners via the LiveAuctioneers.com system must be 'certified' against these paper records, and in case of conflict, the paper record will be the true and accepted record. The Purchaser shall assume full risk and responsibility for the lot purchased once title has passed. The buyer must pay Kentucky State Sales Tax (6%) unless exception is allowed under laws regulating such tax. Out of state sales tax numbers will be accepted. You do not pay Kentucky Sales Tax if items are shipped out of state. All accounts must be settled by sale's end for Floor Bidders, or within 14 days of receipt of Invoice for Absentee/Internet/Phone Bidders, unless other arrangements have been made. Payment may be made by cash, personal check (with id), Money Order, or major credit card/PayPal (a 3% convenience fee will be added to credit card/PayPal purchases). No items removed until paid in full. The Artifact Company reserves the right to hold items until payment clears. The Artifact Company or its Auctioneers are not responsible for any typographical error or omission in this catalog. Photographs in this catalog are of the actual items being sold, but exact condition of the objects offered is their condition the day of the sale. There will be absolutely NO returns or adjustments of any kind made 30 days after Auction date. We reserve the right to refuse admittance to any individual or group. Customers interested in acquiring additional documentation or certificates should make arrangements prior to the sale.
