Bids not in compliance with these increments will be reduced to the appropriate amount.
As a reminder the increment option is "a number of bidding increments". You can specify from 1 to 5 increments. Be aware, however, for this scenario: Let's say that you bid $270 on a lot and state to "increase my bids by 5 increments to secure the lot". At $270, the bidding increments are $10. I will go $270, $280, $290 and $300 - using three of the five increments. At $300 the bidding increments now become $25. So, I will then go $325 and $350 using the last two allotted increments. So, please be careful as what you bid $270 on may very well cost you $350 plus the commission.
COLOR computer scan of any lot are available upon request. If possible, these will be sent via e-mail as JPG files. Though there is no charge for a reasonable number of scans, please include a couple of dollars to cover postage and/or handling costs. There will be a charge for larger items and lots with multiple items. On the photo pages, please note that "CR" indicates that the item was cropped and "EX" means that the item shown is an example of the items in the lot. These are NOT indicated on the web site. In the text "PHW" indicates that the photo is only on the web site or that more of a lot is on the web site.
