Estimates have been given for all lots in this auction. They are meant to reflect our idea

of the current market value of the item given its scarcity and condition. Lots may sell for

more or less than the estimates as the bidding dictates.


Postal Bid Forms should be sent or faxed to be received by our office before 6 PM prior

to the day of the auction. For evening auctions no later than 12 noon on auction day.

Extension on lots should be noted on bid forms.


All lots will be sold to the highest bidder. A 15% Buyer's Premium will be added to the

hammer price, on all lots. The buyer agrees to pay all shipping and handling costs. It

is solely the buyer's responsibility to notify Phila China Limited of any special shipping



In the case of tie bids or any other disputes arising, the auctioneer's decision will be final.

The auctioneer retains the right to act as seller's agent in placing a protective reserve on

any lot.


All invoices are payable in Hong Kong dollars. Payment in any other currencies will not

be accepted unless prior arrangements have been made, with such payment to include all

additional bank charges. All foreign currency personal checks and Eurocheques will not

be accepted. A standard HK$250 shipping/handling fee per shipment of purchase will be

charged, there will be additional charges for carton lot shipments. Overseas buyers must

a late fee of 5% and interest at the rate of 2% per month from the day of the auction will

be added.


Floor bidders requesting extensions should do so at the time of bidding. All floor bidders

will not be granted any return privileges. It is presumed that all floor bidders have inspected

the lots prior to bidding. Therefore, lots purchased by floor bidders are sold "AS IS" and

may not be returned. Floor bidders include those bidders acting as agents for others. Due

to possible mishandling of items by subsequent owners, the Auctioneer reserves the right

to describe items differently than shown on certificates from any certification service that

accompany the items. Describing and grading are an art, not a science, and therefore the

descriptions provided in this catalog may not agree with the opinion of others (including

trained experts), and the same expert may not describe and grade the same stamp with the

same description and grade at two different times. Description and grading standards have

changed in the past, and as time passes and market conditions changed over the years, they

may do so again in the future. If any dispute arises in this context, the Auctioneer retains

the right to the final resolution of the matter. For lots that requested extension, Phila China

will submit the item to a mutually-acceptable expertizer, providing that: 1) The lot will be

paid for in full plus all charges for expertizing, including postage, mail registration, insurance

and handling at the time of purchase, and 2) The expertizer can provide a written opinion

within 30 days of the auction date. All costs and charges for expertization are the sole

responsibility and liability of the buyers.


All lots containing more than two items may not be returned under any circumstances. Mail

and telephone bidders are encouraged to have a local agent view these on their behalf.

Phila China Limited reserves the right to refuse admission to the viewing and auction venue

to any person, at its discretion.
