Auction Terms & Conditions Terms & Conditions of Sale 1. Catalogue Descriptions Wiederseim Associates, Inc. has endeavored to accurately describe all items being sold, but all property is being sold “As Is”, “Where Is”. No statement in a catalogue, invoice, bill of sale, or elsewhere by any representative or person in the employ of Wiederseim Associates, Inc. shall be deemed a warranty, representation, or assumption of liability with respect to age, condition, size, quality, variety, importance, provenance, material of manufacture, metal content or assay, stone identification, weight, or size measurement, or historical relevance of any of the items offered for sale. Any potential Bidders accept sole responsibility for contacting us to obtain condition reports on any offered lots and/or inspect said lots before bidding to determine the condition and if there are any repairs or restorations. If a lot description contains the phrase “As Found” it indicates that there are general “issues /difficulties.” The absence of a condition statement does not imply that the lot is in perfect condition or completely free from wear and tear, imperfections, or the effects of aging. Wiederseim Associates Inc. will endeavor to provide additional information as a courtesy, but it is only an opinion and should not be regarded as a statement of fact. 2. Bidding The Auctioneer will attempt to follow bidding increments as precisely as possible, but retains the discretion to change increments and further reserves the right to reject any bid or raise in bid. As a service to our customers, Wiederseim Associates, Inc. offers internet bidding, both absentee and live, through multiple platforms (see # 9 and # 10). The Auctioneer is not liable for, nor has control of, online transmission speeds or bid increments placed by registered online users. Wiederseim Associates, Inc reserves the right to limit lots offered for auction online and is not liable for any errors or failure in execution of any bid in connection with this process. Certain lots may be subject to a reserve or minimum price as agreed upon by Wiederseim Associates, Inc and the Consignor which will be executed by the Auctioneer. Wiederseim Associates, Inc. reserves the right to withdraw any property prior to the Auction. Standard Bid Increments: Variations are at the discretion of the auctioneer. $0 - $500: by $25 $500 - $1,000: by $50 $1,000 - $2,500: by $100 $2500 - $5,000: by $250 $5000 - $10,000: by $500 $10,000 - $20,000: by $1,000 $20,000 & up: Auctioneer’s discretion 3. Payment Terms All accounts are to be settled by the end of the day. Payment shall be in cash, money order or cashier’s check. Personal and business checks will be accepted if good credit has already been established or a personal reference from individuals known to us or upon presentation of a “letter of guarantee” from an officer of your bank. This letter must state an exact amount of funds guaranteed, expressly stating the funds are payable to Wiederseim Associates, Inc. on the specific day of the Auction. In any event, Wiederseim Associates, Inc reserves the right to hold all or some of the merchandise purchased until good payment is received and/or any check has cleared our bank and with all items to be shipped at the purchaser’s expense. A service charge of $40.00 will be charged for any returned check. Wiederseim Associates, Inc reserves the right to charge the invoice amount a 3% surcharge if bidders have not paid within 10 days of the auction date. 4. Disputes & Title to Goods In the event of a dispute, the Auctioneer will be the final judge as to which Bidder is successful. The Auctioneer may at his sole discretion, re-open the bidding on a particular item. Title shall pass on all items sold when the Auctioneer says “SOLD”. The Purchaser assumes total and full responsibility for all goods at that time, and is responsible for payment for all items whether or not the Purchaser actually takes possession at that time. If any dispute arises after the conclusion of the Auction, the records of the Auctioneer and Clerk shall stand as conclusive. Any loss or damage by breakage, natural disaster, theft or any other cause is therefore the sole and entire responsibility of the Purchaser. 5. Buyer’s Premium & Sales Tax Each individual Lot sold is subject to a 20% Buyer’s Premium which will be added to the successful bid price of each Lot and is payable by the Purchaser as part of the total purchase price. Separate Terms apply to internet bidding. A 6% State of Pennsylvania sales tax will be added to the total purchase price, unless purchased for resale or exempt from tax by other Pennsylvania law. All Bidders who qualify for exemption must file a Sales Tax exemption form with Wiederseim Associates, Inc. 6. Removal of Goods All property is to be removed from the premises at the risk and expense of the purchaser, subject to limitations stated at the time of sale. Any items left at the sale site are left there at the purchaser’s risk. Additional storage fees will be charged for items left more than a week. The Auctioneer assumes no responsibility for abandoned items. If items are left for pickup, they must be paid for, in full, on the day of the sale. 7.

SERVICE TERMS AND CONDITIONS ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS Sebae Data Solutions, (the makers of Auction Flex & HiBid (formerly Bidopia) hereafter referred to as "Sebae"), provides its service to you, subject to the following Terms & Conditions ("TAC"), which we may update from time to time without notice to you. The most current version of the TAC can be found found at any time by visiting the link: USE AND REGISTRATION Our services are available only to, and may only be used by individuals who can form legally binding contracts under applicable law. Without limiting the foregoing, our services are not available to children (persons under the age of 18) or to temporarily or indefinitely suspended members. If you are under the age of 18, you can use this service only in conjunction with, and under the supervision of your parents or guardians. If you do not qualify, please do not use our service. If you are registering as a business entity, you represent that you have the authority to bind the entity to the TAC. REGISTRATION OBLIGATIONS In consideration of your use of the Service, you agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Service's registration form (such information being the "Bidder Information") and (b) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or Sebae has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, Sebae has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Service (or any portion thereof).  DESCRIPTIONS OF SERVICE Sebae provides the following services under the Auction Flex & HiBid trademarks: Integrated Web Service (for auctioneers), internet bidding (absentee, online-only, & webcast). You can learn more about these services in the following sections. HIBID INTERNET AUCTION PLATFORM & WEB SERVICE DESCRIPTION Sebae provides the HiBid (formerly Bidopia) Internet Auction Platform & Web Service ("HWS") under the HiBid trademark as a software solution for auctioneers wishing to extend the audience of their live auctions to the internet. The HWS provides various features including internet absentee bidding, internet-only auctions, and webcast auctions.  The HWS is able to changes its appearance to coincide with the website that it is powering. Accordingly, the HWS powers the website as well as numerous Auction Flex customer websites. This ability to change appearance is a feature of the HWS. Much like internet merchant account providers can host a secure web page for a vendor to easily process payments, the HWS hosts certain portions of the auctioneer's website to easily enable advanced features such as internet bidding.  INTERNET ABSENTEE BIDDING Internet absentee bidding allows you to place a bid for an item in advance of an auction. This allows you to place bids on lots without actually attending the auction. INTERNET-ONLY AUCTIONS Internet only bidding allows you to place a bid for an item prior to the auction lot closing online. In an internet-only auction there is no live auction. WEBCAST AUCTIONS Webcast auctions allow you to bid in real-time against other bidders or place pre-bids prior to a lot going "live". Lots are sold in accordance with the Auctioneer's terms and conditions which are accessible from each lot's page. It is your responsibility to read and accept the Auctioneer's terms and conditions prior to placing your bid. When you place a bid you are agreeing to be bound by the Auctioneer's & Sebae's terms and conditions. By placing a bid you are entering into a legally binding and enforceable contract. Please keep in mind that you are bidding against other internet bidders as well as floor bidders, phone bidders, and regular absentee bidders (this list does not constitute a complete list of bidder types but does highlight the common bidder channels). The auctioneer, at their discretion, can approve or deny bidders. The auctioneer reserves the right to accept or deny bidders for any reason. Prior to approval the auctioneer may contact you to determine your credit worthiness. If the auctioneer approves your bid, the auctioneer will then process your bid in accordance with their terms and conditions. Should your bid for a lot prove successful, the auctioneer may contact you to arrange for payment & shipping (if applicable). If the auctioneer required registration via a credit card, the auctioneer reserves the right to process your winning bids to the credit card provided during registration. Sebae, through the Auction Flex & HiBid products & services, facilitates the internet bidding process between the Auctioneer & the bidder. Sebae is in no way a party to the transaction. Because Sebae is not a party to the transaction, you accept that you will have no claim or cause of action against Sebae in respect of the sale (or non-sale) of any Lot. If you have a dispute with an Auctioneer or another user of the Service with regard to the sale (or non-sale) of any Lot you agree that Sebae, its officers, agents, employees will not be liable for losses (including, but not limited to, loss of profits, special loss, indirect loss and consequential los), costs, damages, liabilities, claims, demands and expenses of any kind arising out of or connected with such dispute. You also accept that none of the aforementioned are under any obligation to take any action to resolve any dispute between you and an Auctioneer Sebae is not responsible for any typographical, pictorial or technical errors in information about Lots on the Site as provided by Auctioneers. Sebae does not evaluate Lots and does not act as a specialist or expert on any related subject matter. Sebae makes no warranties or representation of any kind or nature with respect to Lots (including but not limited to representations or warranties as to the accuracy of description, genuineness, quality, authorship, attribution, provenance, period, culture, source, origin or safety). If you have any questions, e-mail the Auctioneer directly. In particular, make sure that you understand the Auctioneer's payment terms and shipping terms. BIDDING The Service requires you to login with your username and password prior to placing a bid on a Lot. Making bids with false information or with stolen credit card information is prohibited and illegal. Your user name and password are required in order to place internet bids. Making bids in a false name or with an invalid or stolen credit card is prohibited. Each bid carries the computer coding of the Internet provider which allows the individual user to be traced and Sebae may at its discretion release this information to enable legal action to be taken. Sebae may, in its entire discretion, refuse or remove bids where it suspects that bids contravene this prohibition. By placing a bid, you are making a binding and irrevocable offer to purchase the Item at any price up to the maximum bid amount you submit. If you win, you must complete the transaction, subject to any contractual right or other right at law to rescind the contract in certain circumstances. Failure to complete transaction without lawful reason is not only a breach of your contract with the Seller but also a breach of this User Agreement. The amount bid can be increased but cannot be decreased. The auctioneer may, at their discretion, allow you to withdraw and resubmit a bid in the case of bids containing an obvious typographical error. You may forward a request to withdraw a bid and resubmit a correct bid by immediately sending an email to the auctioneer, however, there is no guarantee that any bid will be withdrawn. Although Sebae will use best efforts to forward all bids, Sebae does not accept any responsibility for lost bids or problems with the recipient auctioneer's ability to process your bid. Moreover, Sebae cannot guarantee that bids received will be processed by the individual auctioneers. Please note that Sebae's role is limited to the provision of the Site for dissemination and publication of information provided by the Sellers. THE WINNING BID The winning bid in an auction will be the highest bid that exceeds any reserve (if a reserve exists). In the case of equal bids, the earliest bid received will be the winning bid. If a higher bid is subsequently withdrawn or removed then the auctioneer shall have the right to accept the next highest bid. NOTICE OF END OF SALE, PAYMENT & SHIPPING After the sale has ended, the auctioneer will notify the winning bidder via phone, fax or mail that they have won. If you do not receive notice that you have made the winning bid and think that you are the top bidder, you should check with the auctioneer directly. You will make all payment for Items to the auctioneer in accordance with their terms and conditions. BUYER'S PREMIUM, TAXES AND DUTIES If you are a successful bidder, you are responsible for paying any buyer's premium, taxes and duties (including any VAT, sales tax and import duties) that may be imposed on the final price paid for an Item. Accordingly, it is your responsibility to check the applicable taxes and duties that may be imposed on an Item prior to bidding for it.
