Coming to the auction to bid for boxes and mixed lots ??  A little advice; don’t set your heart on just
one lot. It’s not unusual for a mixed lot here and there to end up selling for a great deal more than the
estimate. If this is the one you were wanting, and you are well beaten, it’s always good to have at least
one or two fallback options.
A Buyer’s Premium of 10% (vat-inclusive) will be added to all sale prices.

€uro Currency; We are happy to accept Euro cash payments in our shop. We display our rate beside the counter. We normally allow the market rate rounded down to the next whole penny. For example, at the time of writing, the market rate is 0.6830, so we are allowing 68p per Euro (which is probably better than your bank will give you). You can also pay for auction lots in Euro banknotes (postal customers please confirm before sending). We also accept payments in our shop in Euros, and we buy the old “legacy” currencies, as well as other coins and notes.

CREDIT CARDS

We are happy to accept MasterCard and Visa credit card payments, as well as payments by Maestro and Delta. This facility can be used by room purchasers (who pay their accounts at the auction), by other local customers (who pay their bill in our shop), and by postal buyers.

Do not complete these details unless you want to pay by credit card, and to have the lots posted.

Please bid early. In the case of equal bids, the lot will be sold to the person whose bid was received first (unless free bidding in the room equals the top book-bid, although the Auctioneer will try to regulate the bidding in such a way as to avoid this).
 Apart from viewing the lots in person, you can get a better description of any lot, by telephoning or writing.
 (Photocopies are available, at a charge of 15p per copy (colour copies A4 pages; 1st copy £1, 50p per page thereafter), plus postage.)

Rates abroad are EEC countries £4, other European countries £7, Overseas £10.

 Open Bids ("Buy Bids") are not normally accepted. If such bids are made, they will be taken to mean a bid of ten times the printed estimate.
