    Conditions of Sale

    By accepting a bidder number, placing a bid on any item, and/or being the successful, wining bidder, you acknowledge that you have read, understand and agree to all of the terms and conditions of the auction sale including those contained herein and any additional terms announced on the day of the sale.

    We accept online, phone and absentee bids.

    We reserve the right to deny bidders who do not have a physical mailing address in the United States or Canada or an APO/FPO. We regret having to do this but there have been far too many issues with international packages not being received.

    All items are sold "AS IS, WHERE IS" with all faults. All sales are final! Items cannot be returned.

    The successful bidder is the highest bidder acknowledged by Period Americana. In the event of any dispute between bidders, or in the event of doubt on Period Americana's part as to the validity of any bid, Period Americana will have the final discretion either to determine the successful bidder or to re-offer and resell the article in dispute. If any dispute arises after the sale, Period Americana's sale record is conclusive.

    The purchaser assumes full responsibility for items at the fall of the hammer.

    If we are prevented by fire, theft, or any other reason whatsoever from delivering any property to the purchaser, our liability shall be limited to the sum actually paid by the purchaser for such property.

    Period Americana reserves the right to withdraw any lot at any time before the auction without liability.

    Period Americana reserves the right to reject any bid not commensurate with the value of the property offered.

    Unless otherwise stated, all lots have a reserve equal to 50% of the low estimate and auctions will open for bidding at an amount approximately equal to 75% of the high estimate and reduce, if necessary, from there. Period Americana reserves the right to pass lots which do not meet this reserve or to lower or remove the reserve price and accept the then-highest bid.

    A range of estimates is given on each lot with a low and a high estimate. Estimates should not be relied on as a prediction of the actual selling price. Estimates are simply an opinion.

    If any applicable conditions herein are not complied with by the purchaser, Period Americana at its option may either (a) cancel the sale, retaining as liquidated damages all payments made by the purchaser or (b) resell the property at public auction without reserve or minimum selling price, and the purchaser will be liable for any deficiency and costs, including handling charges, expenses of both sales, the commission on both sales at regular rates, all other charges due here under and incidental damages.

    The terms and conditions contained herein supersede the terms, conditions and guarantees on our website.
