Online Foreign Coin Auction
First Lot Ends: Saturday, December 3, 2016 @ 1:00 pm (CDT)
Auctioneer’s Note: Mr. Long loved his coins and took great pride in his collection! This is the first of two auctions of his foreign coins.
PLEASE NOTE: Mr. Long identified, organized, graded and valued each coin in his collection. He spent much time in research and the results show in the notations on the holders. It is our belief that the identifications and attributions are accurate and reliable. However, it is our belief also that the greatest majority of the coins are graded a half to full grade higher than we would have graded them. For that reason we would recommend you examine the photos and make your own conclusions as to condition and grade, using your own judgement as to the grades written on the holders. Due to the sheer volume, we cannot make any warranties on any of the coins in this auction. That said, this is still a wonderful collection with much quantity and variety and some very nice specimens. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
Preview and Pickup is at Black and Gold Auctions located at
7125 Henderson Rd. in Columbia, Missouri.
Local Pickup Date:
Monday, December 5, 2016, from 4-6:00 pm
This is an online only auction with bidding through Proxibid. Bidding will end in numerical order with 2 items ending every minute. If there is bidding activity in the last 2 minutes, the end time will be extended 2 minutes until there is no further bidding for 2 minutes. Extending the end time for an item does not change the end time of the following item, so there may be several lots ending simultaneously. You may bid anytime up until the ending time for each item. Click the link above for the auction catalog and to register to bid.
TERMS: You will have to register to bid in this auction. The registration process with Proxibid is one-time. You will not have to go through the registration process for future auctions. If you do not wish to register with your credit card, please contact our office and we will assist you with options. If you have difficulty with registering or if you are unsure about the process, or if you just want help bidding, call our office and we will be glad to help you with it. Online bidders will pay a buyer’s premium of 15%. If you are local and want to pick up and pay for your items in person, we will lower the buyer’s premium to 10%.
PAYMENT AND SHIPPING: We accept cash, credit cards, PayPal, and checks. Local buyers can use credit cards, cash, or personal check. Nothing will be removed from the auction site until it is paid for. WE WILL GLADLY SHIP ANY ITEM YOU WANT! If you want us to ship your items, the cost of packing and shipping will be added to your total and a new invoice will be sent to you showing the total due. Packing and shipping will be handled in-house on smaller items. There will be a $2 PER LOT packing charge. For exceptionally heavy, fragile, awkward, or those that consist of large numbers of items, such as sets of dishes, the packing charge will be based on the amount of materials and labor required. The actual cost of the postage will be added to the packing charge to determine the total shipping charge. You always have the option of picking up your items at our offices and we will waive the charge if you do. Just let us know as we pack and ship very quickly after the auction. Our carriers of choice are FedEx Ground and USPS, whichever is most economical. If you have other shipping preferences, please let us know and we will try to accommodate them. We will make every effort to ship within 48 hours of auction end. If you have any questions about our shipping policies, please feel free to call or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We ship in-house with reasonable handling charges ($1.00 per lot). Payment is expected within 48 hours of invoice for shipped items. If you wish to make payment arrangements other than credit card for shipped orders, we ask that you contact Black and Gold Auctions at least 24 hours before the auction. We will be happy to work with you in that way.
