The auction is voluntary and lots are sold on behalf of the vendor to the highest bidder. The prices indicated against each lot are starting prices and not minimum prices. It must, however, be pointed out that the starting prices should reflect a low commercial value.

Bids not corresponding with these steps might be reduced.
Bids submitted are binding, and cancellation is only acceptable if received simultaneously with the bid. If bids are given on behalf of others, then the bidder is himself responsible for the fulfilment of the conditions of sale. The bidder is responsible for faulty mail bids and the same applies in misunderstandings in bids submitted by telephone or fax. The bidder is personally responsible for any and all his purchases in the auction.
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.
Payment is made in advance based on an advance invoice. The ownership of the objects remain with the vendor until the full invoice amount has been paid. 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.
Lots are conscientiously described but faults may occur. Claims must be made at the latest 10 days after receipt of the lot and full payment has been made with reference to the invoice number. If a claim is accepted, the full hammer price + commission and eventual V.A.T. is refunded. Interest compensation can not be made.
Request for extension must be made immediately and within 8 days from receipt. Certifier must be approved by the auctioneer. 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.
Submission of verbal or mail bids means that the bidder has accepted above conditions.
Swedish law is applicable.

Your bids must be in Euro and divisible by 10.
The bidding always starts with the second highest mail bid plus the next increase (see condition of sale sect. 2). The bidding then continues between the bidders in the audience and the highest mail bidder.
We can also offer a "maximum service" which allows you to fix your total maximum purchase. The total of your individual bids may exceed your maximum, but we will ensure that your total purchase stays within the maximum requested.
Should there be two or more equal mail bids then the first bid received will buy the lot, so please submit your bids as early as possible.
We can only guarantee that your bids will be considered if we have received them before 12 a.m. on the day before the auction.
