Special times deserve special treatment.
We are living through a unique period in the history of humanity, not just the
impact of COVID-19 but also the global response to contain and minimize it. To
accommodate all the necessary changes, we have decided to
re-schedule our Auction #27 for May 27-28, 2020,
and all bidding will be live on the Internet (no floor). Lots will be online and
open for bidding around the end of April, and printed catalogs will be mailed
We strive to offer the professional and convenient service you've come to expect
from us, and out of respect for the current global situation we are extending
the following additional benefits for our next auction:
1) Payment terms are extended interest-free to 45 days. Also, we now accept
payment by Zelle, same as cash, up to $2500.
(2) If shipping or lot pickup is an issue, any paid lots may be securely
held in our vault, fully insured, for up to one year rent-free.
Prior to the auction, our staff will provide additional images or videos and
answer questions for any lots upon request.
(4) We will accommodate appointments to view the lots in person at our
private office following recommended health guidelines.
(5) The live auction sessions will be streamed on video available to
iCollector (just no floor bidding in
(6) Lower limits for phone bidding for the live auction sessions this time
will be dropped to $300 per lot (still by reservation only).
