Auction Manager a note if you have
any suggestions for improving the auction.
- Highest bid wins. In the event of tie bids, earliest postmark or email date stamp breaks the tie. Bid what you are willing to pay; winning buds are rarely reduced.
- Auctioneer reserves the right to reject unreasonable bids. Bids received after the deadline will not be considered. Auctioneer's decisions are final.
- All lots are sold "as is" without warranty by auctioneer or FICC. In case of a dispute, , the auctioneer will contact the seller and provide the name of the buyer and the nature of the dispute to allow direct settlement.
- An expertizing policy exists for lots with a realized price of $75 or more (contact the Auction Manager for details).
- The club receives a 10% fee from each lot sold. The fee will be split between the seller and the buyer.
- Shipping charges are added to the buyer's total. Lots will be mailed using normal USPS rates. Winning lots totalling more than $200 will be insured, certified or registered.
- Payment may be requested before shipment.
- Bidding in an auction constitutes agreement to these rules.
