Conditions of Sale

TERMS & CONDITIONS

All property offered and sold ("property") through Samuel T. Freeman & Co, ("Freeman's") shall be offered and sold on the terms and conditions set forth below which constitutes the complete statement of the terms and conditions on which all property is offered for sale. By bidding at the auction, whether present in person or by agent, by written bid, telephone, internet or other means, the buyer agrees to be bound by these terms and conditions.

1. Unless otherwise indicated, all Property will be offered by Freeman's as
agent for the Consignor.
2. Freeman's reserves the right to vary the terms of sale and any such variance
shall become part of these Conditions of Sale.
3. As a result of the Covid-19 Pandemic, in person inspections of the Property are available by appointment only and therefore, Freeman's has also made available to the Buyer the opportunity to (a) view the lot online at freemansauction. com and to view
the auction's e-catalogue, (b) submit a request for a condition report either
through the online lot listing or by contacting the specialist directly and (c)
have a virtual consultation with the specialist. Buyer acknowledges that it has
had the right to take advantage of the aforementioned inspections prior to
the sale to determine the condition, size, repair or restoration of any Property.
Buyer acknowledges that it had the right to make a full inspection of all
Property prior to sale to determine the condition, size, repair or restoration of
any Property. Therefore, all property is sold "AS-IS". Freeman's is acting solely
as an auction broker, and unless otherwise stated, does not own the Property
offered for sale and has made no independent investigation of the Property.
Freeman's makes no warranty of title, merchantability or fitness for a particular
purpose, or any other warranty or representation regarding the description,
genuineness, attribution, provenance or condition to the Property of any kind
or nature with respect to the Property.
4. Freeman's in its sole and exclusive discretion, reserves the right to withdraw
any property, at any time, before the fall of the hammer.
5. Unless otherwise announced by the auctioneer at the time of sale, all bids
are per lot as numbered in the printed catalogue. Freeman's reserves the
right to determine any and all matters regarding the order, precedence or
appropriate increment of bids or the constitution of lots.
6. The highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer shall be the buyer.
The auctioneer has the right to reject any bid, to advance the bidding at his
absolute discretion and in the event of any dispute between bidders, the
auctioneer shall have the sole and final discretion either to determine the
successful bidder or to re- offer and resell the article in dispute. If any dispute
arises after sale, the Freeman's sale record shall be conclusive in all respects.
7. If the auctioneer determines that any opening or later bid or any advance
bid is not commensurate with the value of the Property offered, he may reject
the same and withdraw the Property from sale.
8. Upon the fall of the hammer, title to any offered lot or article will immediately
pass to the highest bidder as determined in the exclusive discretion of the
auctioneer, subject to compliance by the buyer with these Conditions of Sale.
Buyer thereupon assumes full risk and responsibility of the property sold,
agrees to sign any requested confirmation of purchase, and agrees to pay the
full price, plus Buyer's Premium, therefore or such part, upon such terms as
Freeman's may require.
9. No lot may be removed from Freeman's premises until the buyer has paid
in full the purchase price therefor including Buyer's Premium or has satisfied
such terms that Freeman's, in its sole discretion, shall require. Subject to the
foregoing, all Property shall be paid for and removed by the buyer at his/
her expense within ten (10) days of sale and, if not so removed, may be sold
by Freeman's, or sent by Freeman's to a third-party storage facility, at the
sole risk and charge of the buyer(s), and Freeman's may prohibit the buyer
from participating, directly or indirectly, as a bidder or buyer in any future
sale or sales. In addition to other remedies available to Freeman's by law,
Freeman's reserves the right to impose a late charge of 1.5% per month of
the total purchase price on any balance remaining ten (10) days after the
day of sale. If Property is not removed by the buyer within ten (10) days, a
handling charge of 2% of the total purchase price per month from the tenth
day after the sale until removal by the buyer shall be payable to Freeman's
by the buyer. Freeman's will not be responsible for any loss, damage, theft,
or otherwise responsible for any goods left in Freeman's possession after
ten (10) days. If the foregoing conditions or any applicable provisions of law
are not complied with, in addition to other remedies available to Freeman's
and the Consignor (including without limitation the right to hold the buyer(s)
liable for the bid price) Freeman's, at its option, may either cancel the sale,
retaining as liquidated damages all payments made by the buyer(s), or resell
the property. In such event, the buyer(s) shall remain liable for any deficiency
in the original purchase price and will also be responsible for all costs,
including warehousing, the expense of the ultimate sale, and Freeman's
commission at its regular rates together with all related and incidental
charges, including legal fees. Payment is a precondition to removal. Payment
shall be by cash, certified check or similar bank draft, or any other method
approved by Freeman's. Checks will not be deemed to constitute payment until cleared. Any exceptions must be made upon Freeman's written approval
of credit prior to sale. In addition, a defaulting buyer will be deemed to have
granted and assigned to Freeman's, a continuing security interest of first
priority in any property or money of, or owing to such buyer in Freeman's
possession, and Freeman's may retain and apply such property or money as
collateral security for the obligations due to Freeman's. Freeman's shall have
all of the rights accorded a secured party under the Pennsylvania Uniform
Commercial Code.
10. Unless the sale is advertised and announced as "without reserve", each lot
is offered subject to a reserve and Freeman's may implement such reserves
by bidding through its representatives on behalf of the Consignors. In certain
instances, the Consignor may pay less than the standard commission rate
where Freeman's or its representative is a successful bidder on behalf of the
Consignor. Where the Consignor is indebted to Freeman's, Freeman's may
have an interest in the offered lots and the proceeds therefrom, other than
the broker's Commissions, and all sales are subject to any such interest.
11. No "buy" bids shall be accepted at any time for any purpose.
12. Any pre-sale bids must be submitted in writing to Freeman's prior to
commencement of the offer of the first lot of any sale. Freeman's copy of
any such bid shall conclusively be deemed to be the sole evidence of same,
and while Freeman's accepts these bids for the convenience of bidders not
present at the auction, Freeman's shall not be responsible for the failure to
execute, or, to execute properly, any pre-sale bid.
13.A Buyer's Premium will be added to the successful bid price and is payable
by the buyer as part of the total purchase price. The Buyer's Premium shall
be: 26% on the first $600,000 of the hammer price of each lot, 20% on the
portion from $600,001 through $3,000,000 and 12% thereafter.
14. Third-Party Internet Bidding Services (a) Third Party Bidding Platforms.
We engage third party online bidding platforms to collect or facilitate auction
bids ("Bidding Platforms"), each of which levy a fee for their services, and have
their own rules on fees and how to bid and buy online using these Bidding
Platforms. Freeman's has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for,
the content, privacy policies, or practices of any Bidding Platforms. Your
dealings with Bidding Platforms are solely between you and such Bidding
Platforms. We encourage you to be aware of, and to read, the terms and
conditions and privacy policy of any Bidding Platforms that you visit. You
expressly release Freeman's from any and all liability arising from your use
of any Bidding Platform or other third-party website or service. (b) Waiver.

a lot comes up for sale. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES, INCLUDING, BUT
NOT LIMITED TO, NEGLIGENCE, WILL WE AND OUR SELLERS BE LIABLE

15. Unless exempted by law from the payment thereof, the buyer will be
required to pay any and all federal excise tax and any state and/or local sales
taxes, including where deliveries are to be made outside the state where a
sale is conducted, which may be subject to a corresponding or compensating
tax in another state. All purchases made at Freeman's, therefore, will be subject to the Pennsylvania State and Local sales tax--currently at a combined rate of 8%, which is applied to the hammer price plus buyer's premium--unless the successful buyer submits the required tax exemption documentation. Those seeking exemption from sales tax must provide a valid certificate to Freeman's prior to outgoing shipment.

In accordance with Pennsylvania State law, if Freeman's or the buyer arranges for a lot/s to be shipped outside of Pennsylvania through an independent, third-party shipping company, Freeman's must collect Pennsylvania sales tax on the lot/s irrespective of the property's final destination. If the item is first delivered to any hired service provider (e.g. restorer, storage facility, etc.) located in Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania sales tax will still be applicable and invoiced, even if the lot will ultimately be shipped out-of-state.
16. Freeman's may, as a service to buyer, arrange to have purchased property
posted and shipped at the buyer's expense. Freeman's is not responsible
for any acts or omissions in packing or shipping of purchased lots whether
or not such carrier is recommended by Freeman's. Packing and handling of
purchased lots is at the responsibility of the buyer and is at the entire risk of
the buyer.
17. In no event shall any liability of Freeman's to the buyer exceed the
purchase price actually paid.
18. No claimed modification or amendment of this Agreement on the part
of any party shall be deemed extant, enforceable or provable unless it is in
writing that has been signed by the parties to this Agreement. No course of
dealing and no delay or omission on the part of Freeman's in exercising any
right under this Agreement shall operate as a waiver of such right or any other
right and waiver on any one or more occasions shall not be construed as a
bar to or waiver of any right or remedy of Freeman's on any future occasion.
19. These Conditions of Sale and the buyer's, the Consignor's and Freeman's
rights under these Conditions of Sale shall be governed by, construed and
enforced in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania
and Consignor and Buyer agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Philadelphia,
Pennsylvania Court of Common Pleas and the United States District Court for
the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.
