Auction Terms & Conditions TERMS & CONDITIONS OF SALE: The purpose of the catalog is to identify items being sold to the best of the ability of A New Day Auctions staff.

It is our intention to give accurate descriptions and make note of any damage. It is the bidder's responsibility to determine condition and completeness, etc. of property being offered. Items will be tested to the best of our ability, however it is up to the buyer to verify functionality of all items. All measurements are approximate.No warranty of merchantability or fitness is being offered by the auctioneer, seller, or any other agents.

If more information or photos are needed we encourage you to ask and we will provide what we can. ALL SALES ARE FINAL NO RETURNS - EVERYTHING IS SOLD AS IS WHERE IS NO WARRANTIES WRITTEN OR IMPLIED.
AUTHENTICITY: We strive to represent items with all honesty - our reputation depends on it. We are not experts in every field and often consult with those who are. Fakes and forgeries are very prevalent in all areas of antiques and collectibles. We refuse known forgeries nearly every day with best efforts to keep them off the market. Occasionally a known fake such as a Rolex may be sold but will be clearly stated in the catalog descriptions. Other items may not be easily determined such as Coach and we will report it as marked as such and such.
AUTOGRAPHS: Autographs are an exceptionally difficult field with many authentication services available. We do not believe authenticating is an exact science and are not here to engage in "dueling experts" to dispute COA's and will not accept a contrary opinion as grounds for canceling a sale regardless of perceived qualifications of another expert. Authentications come down to a matter of opinion. We sell everything on consignment and represent what we know about an item including any authentication that comes with an item. We encourage bidders to do their own research. It is our firm policy that ALL SALES ARE FINAL.
