TERMS OF SALE

 

Auction Participants are required to strictly observe and accept the following conditions governing auction sales (which will be considered fully accepted in case bids are submitted).

- All material is deemed authentic and free of any hidden defects, otherwise it would be indicated. The lots are described with utmost accuracy and good faith. Regarding photographed lots the reproduction is determinant for margins, centring, perforation, cancellation and general aspects of lots. The numeration is in conformity with Sassone catalogue for Italy, Italian territories and Europe while Yvert is used for countries abroad, with the Filagrano catalogue for the Interi Postali. Where appropriate other catalogues will be indicated in the description.

- The Auctioneer has the power, in his own unobjectionable judgement, to withdraw and divide the offered lots, and to refuse offers arrived.

- The base prices are expressed in euro. Offers lower than base prices will not be accepted.

- The lots shall be awarded to the highest bidder. In case there are several offers received by mail, the starting price in the auction-room will be calculated by increasing the penultimate bid by one click as per "bid increments table" for example: base price euro 100,00, received offers euro 150,00, 200,00, 300,00.The lot will start (in the auction-room) from euro 220,00). If there were two or more than two offers of the same amount in writing, the lot shall start in the auction-room from the sum itself and, where there are no offers in the auction-room, the lot shall be awarded to the first one received. Offers received in writing take precedence over the ones with the same amount bid in the auction-room.

- The bids increase will be at the auctioneer’s discretion, but they will not be over the 10% with a minimum of € 10.00. Bids stating such expressions as “the best” or similar phrases will not be taken into consideration.

- All bids mailed, faxed, email or otherwise received in our office of Dogana, Piazza Enriquez 22/c, will be accepted only if received within one hour before the start of each auction session or inserted on our live.filsam.com website in pre-auction or through participation in real time “live auction”. Filatelia Sammarinese s.r.l. decline all responsibility for any problems that may occur previously or during the internet connection.
