Klein James Auction Gallery (Hereafter referred to as the Gallery) Your bid is a contract to buy. Most all Auction venues sell their property/items as-is, where-is.

All bidders are responsible for reading and understanding these Terms and Conditions, as well as any additional or supplemental notices. 1.

All statements by us in the catalogue entry for the property or in a condition report, or made orally or in writing elsewhere, are statements of opinion and are not to be relied on as statements of fact. Such statements do not constitute a representation, warranty or assumption of liability by us of any kind. References in the catalogue entry are for guidance only and should be evaluated by personal inspection by the bidder. The absence of such a reference does not imply that an item is free from defects or restoration, nor does a reference to particular defects imply the absence of any others. Estimates of the selling price of any particular item should not be relied on as a statement that this is the price at which it will sell or its value for any other purpose. c. Buyers responsibility.
