The bidder is responsible for faulty mail bids and the same applies in misunderstandings in bids submitted by telephone, fax or through internet live-bidding. The bidder is personally responsible for any and all his purchases in the auction.

  2. Mail bids are dealt with conscientiousness, but without further responsibility to the auctioneer. The auctioneer reserves the right to regroup, split up or withdraw lots and can in case of misunderstandings or disagreements annul the bids and restart the bidding. 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.

If payment is not received 8 days from the invoice date, 2% interest per month is charged together with a fee of Euro 10,-. To this may be added additional documented expences. Has payment not been received 30 days after the invoice date or has the buyer refused to pay, then the objects in question can, without further notification, be reauctioned at the expense of the buyer.

In case of a claim the auctioneer may demand a certificate from a well-known expert. Objects with certificates may, if the auctioneer regards it as justified, and if the original certifier is approved by the auctioneer, only be returned if two other well-known experts have certified a different opinion. Stamps with visible defects on photo (such as cuts, perforation, centering, cancellations etc.) can not be claimed. Returned objects must be in the same condition as when received. Lots of more than three stamps can not be claimed if one of the stamps has a minor defect. Large lots may contain both mint and used material. Collections and mixed lots are sold as is. A difference of approx. 10-20% must be accepted by the buyer.

  6. Submission of verbal or mail bids means that the bidder has accepted above conditions.
