The auctioneer can also withhold the assignment to undesirable persons or refuse them admittance to the auction-room without explanation. In case of two equal mail bids for the same object, this will be sold to the bidder whose bid was the first received. The mail bidder can write alternative bids and/or indicate a total maximum purchase limit.
