Our auction software provides the ability to view and securely participate in a live auction remotely from anywhere in the world. You can see the lots on your computer, and bid against others on the Internet and the auction floor through your browser. All bidders must be registered prior to the beginning of the Online and Absentee portion of the auction. You need only to register one time online – and, you're ready to bid absentee or 'live' for this and all future auctions!

1.  Register To Establish An Account

Before you can participate you must first register. You will need to create an account in order to place bids online. Click on New Bidders found at the upper righthand corner of the website or click here. Please complete the online form. You will need to create your own unique log-on and password. We suggest for your User ID that you use your last name - (dash)first initial (ex: JENKINS-R). You will not be able to register without a valid credit card. 

2.  Internet Bidding

Internet bidding is available on this website, and allows collectors who are unable to attend the auction in person to participate in the sale. You must be a registered bidder in order to place absentee and/or 'Live' bids.

Once you've logged in, bidding is available by scrolling to the bottom of each lot detailed page. The Current Opening and Estimates are displayed. Select your maximum bid from the drop down tab in the My Bid area, and click on Submit Max Bid.

Your bid will be adjusted to the next increment over the next highest bid. When someone else bids, your bid will automatically be adjusted upward in increments up to your maximum bid. The amount of your maximum bid will always be kept secret from all other bidders. All lots are sold to the highest bidder at one increment above the second highest bid.

A message will be displayed near the top of the page if you are the high bidder, or if you've been outbid. In addition, you will be notified via email of your bidding status provided you clicked this option when you completed your registration.

3.  'Live' Bidding

This is an INTERNET ONLY AUCTION and includes extended bidding, with a 15-minute rule for the entire auction.

In order to bid on an item during the extended bidding session, you must have placed at least one bid on said item anytime prior to 7PM Central Time on Monday, February 15th. If you don't bid on a lot by 7PM (CT) the day the auction closes, you can't bid on it afterward - during the 'live' internet auction.

To ensure that everyone gets a chance to bid, we will apply the 15-minute rule to the entire auction. Once approximately 15 minutes passes without a bid, the auction will close. NOTE: We reserve the right to close the auction at any time after 10PM CT.
