|We will be taking a lunch break at 12:00pm each day for approximately thirty minutes, which may affect the timing of afternoon sessions. Check the SAN Live Bidding & Audio Feed to see how the sale is progressing.
* Will begin immediately after the completion of the previous Session.
Buyers will be notified when their material is ready. Pickup will be by appointment only, one customer at a time, and drop-ins will not be accommodated.
|Employing an agent is a good way to make sure your bidding intentions are well-represented if you cannot participate yourself. Auction agents can view material, execute OR bids and limit bids, and maintain your anonymity if desired. If conditions do not permit their participation in person, they connect by video in real time, so they can participate fully. All of the names below are knowledgeable, experienced auction buyers that we can recommend. Please contact an agent directly, well in advance of the auction, to make arrangements for them to represent you.|
