THERE HAS BEEN A BIDDING CHANGE. If you want to adjust your max bid that is already placed, you need to go to your Bid Page and enter the lot# and amount in the blank spaces. Click on the gray lot# button to see the scans. Beginning at 9PM Eastern on closing night, I am waiting for 6 solid minutes of no bids, phone calls, emails or faxes, at which point I shut down the bidding on all the lots (in that half of the auction) at once. If the auction is still alive at Midnight, the 6-Minute rule turns into the 3-Minute rule. In the event of a computer or other calamity, the auction will close one week later. Please use the SEARCH FEATURE, it will catch anything I missed in the Table of Contents, which is also a helpful tool and can be printed off the website. PLEASE NOTE: MY AUCTIONS HAVE A 9% BUYER'S PREMIUM. (We will absorb Paypal charges.) Lots 1 - 385 close Thursday July 23. Lots 386 - 765 Friday July 24. All Bids are in U.S. Dollars
