Absentee auction #68 - Catalogue Descriptions

MCMURRAY ANTIQUES & AUCTIONS

Welcome to my 68th Apothecary/Drugstore, Patent Medicine Bottles and Advertising auction.
Thanks for your continued interest & support !! This auction will close on SATURDAY,
November 17th, at 10:00 PM EST!! The sale features many rare & unique treasures from various
consignors across the country including the Ninth Session of the Dan Cowman Collection along
with other nice quality items from collectors across the country.

I am also currently accepting quality consignments for future auctions. Please call first before
sending anything so we can discuss the items you wish to sell. I also buy outright one piece or
entire collections and pay finders fees for good leads to old drugstores & private collections.

DESCRIPTIONS: I have tried to the best of my ability to describe all items in this sale
and have mentioned any flaws or problems that I felt were necessary. Further information on any
lot can be obtained by calling me. I’d be more than happy to help you out.

BIDDING: This is an absentee auction. All bids are to be done by the mail, phone, fax or
email. By placing a bid on any lot you are agreeing to these terms and are obligated to honor your
bids. This sale ends at 10:00 PM EST ON SATURDAY, November 17th. You may check the
bids on any lot up until this time by calling:

HOME# (607) 775-5972 12 – 5:00 & 7 – 10:00 PM EST OR
FAX/PHONE# (607) 775-2321 12 – 5:00 & 7 – 10:00 PM EST (You can fax anytime)
EMAIL: [email protected]
WEBSITE: www.mcmurrayauctions.com

IMPORTANT: BIDDING ON THE LAST DAY OF THE SALE, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 17th,
WILL BEGIN AT 12:00 NOON AND CONTINUE ALL DAY UNTIL THE 10:00 PM CLOSING.
YOU CAN USE EITHER THE HOME OR FAX/PHONE NUMBERS TO PLACE OR CHECK BIDS
ON THIS DAY.
If a tie bid occurs, the earliest bid placed is awarded the lot.
Bidding increments will be as follows:
$5 - $100.00 = $5. RAISE
$100- $250.00 = $10. RAISE
$250- $750.00 = $25. RAISE
$750- $1,500 = $50. RAISE
$1,500-$3,000 = $100. RAISE
$3,000-$10,000 = $250. RAISE
$10,000 and up = $500. RAISE

ALSO = PLEASE BID AT THE BIDDING INCREMENTS NOTED ABOVE WITH BIDS
ENDING WITH A 5 OR 0. BIDS NOT ENDING WITH A 5 OR 0 WILL BE ROUNDED
DOWN TO THE NEAREST 5 OR 0. FOR EXAMPLE, BIDS OF $21.00, $56.00 OR $101.00
WILL BE ROUNDED DOWN TO $20, $55 AND $100.00.

All lots will be sold to the highest bidder. Your bid and any left bids will be executed just as if
you were at a “live” auction. For example, if you bid $300.00 on a lot and the next closest
underbidder has a bid of only $150.00, you are in the lead on that lot at $160.00, the next highest
bidding increment at that level. If no more bids are received and there is no advancement, then you
win the lot for $160.00 = (Plus the 15% buyers premium).

15% BUYERS PREMIUM FOR THIS AUCTION

MCMURRAY ANTIQUES & AUCTIONS

MINIMUM / STARTING BIDS: Each lot will have a minimum or starting bid. That bid
will be exactly one-half of the lower end of the estimated price. For example, if a lot is estimated at
$100 - $200, the starting bid would be $50, and would proceed from there.

BUYERS PREMIUM: There is a 15% buyers premium for this auction to be paid by
the highest bidder on top of their winning bid, and will be reduced to 12% if paying by check,
money order, cashiers check or cash.
CALL BACKS: Call backs will be done by me starting the next day after the conclusion of the
auction on lots with bids of $100.00 or more. No call backs on lots under this level. Bidding gets
very active the last evening of the sale, and even with two phone lines, you may find it difficult
“getting through” to me, especially that last hour before closing. If I may make a suggestion; if
you are really interested in a lot, make sure that you leave me a bid of $100 on that lot. That
doesn’t mean you will necessarily pay $100 for it (Remember, I bid competitively for you at all
times against other bidders). Your $100 left bid will assure you that if you do get outbid at $110.
after I speak to you, you will then be eligible for a callback and will not lose the lot and can
continue bidding. I know many of you don’t want to “tip your hand”, but this will eliminate any
problems if you can’t reach me that last hour and get outbid by $5 on an item you really wanted.
To be eligible for a callback, you must have already submitted a bid of at least $100. on that
lot before the November 17th deadline. In future sales, I may have to limit the callbacks to only
the top three bidders on any one lot, but for this sale, as long as you’ve bid $100 on a lot, you’ll be
entitled to a callback. I may also increase the callback limit in future sales to reduce the number of
callbacks per auction. As the auctions grow larger, changes will have to be made. If you are
involved with a call back on any lot, it would be helpful to call me also, especially if you’re going
to be out of town!! Use the calling times listed in the bidding section to reach me. I will also need
work and cell phone numbers from you as I’ll be calling during the day as well as in the evening to
wrap up all the call backs and conclude the auction. Callbacks will be concluded five days after
the November 17th closing date – no exceptions! Because of the number of lots in this sale, I
feel this is ample time to finish them up, and be fair to everyone who participated in the auction. If
I can’t reach you during this period & don’t get a call from you, the lot will be awarded. After all
call backs are made, invoices are sent out within a few days with the prices realized.

PAYMENTS: Payments may be made by check, money order, cashiers check, cash, all
Major Credit Cards and PayPal. Credit Card & PayPal payments will be charged the 15%
buyers premium, and would be reduced to 12% if paying by check, money order, cashiers
check or cash. NY State residents are required to pay the 8 % sales tax unless you have a valid NY
State resale number. If I haven’t received your payment within 30 days, your items may be offered
to the underbidders and you may lose your right to participate in future sales.

SHIPPING: All shipping costs & insurance are the responsibility of the winning bidder &
will be included on your invoice. I ship by Fed-Ex, US MAIL and UPS. Due to the volume of
items shipped after each auction, Please allow up to 2-3 weeks for deliveries, after receiving your
payment. I am a one-man operation and pack as fast as I can. Thanks for your understanding!!

PRICES REALIZED: Everyone who paid for a catalogue will be sent a prices realized
sheet, regardless of whether or not they place a bid. These usually serve as a great price guide.

Please call or email me anytime if you have any questions about this auction. I can usually be
reached at the phone numbers and times that I’ve already listed in the Bidding section. The entire
catalog with color pictures (zoom in feature for closer inspection) can be viewed on my website at:
www.mcmurrayauctions.com Good luck to all and I hope you enjoy the sale!!
