IMPORTANT INFORMATION

There is a 25% additional charge (Buyer’s Premium) added to the Hammer Price on all items. In the case that the Hammer Price is above fifty thousand dollars ($50,000), the Buyer’s Premium on the incremental amount above fifty thousand dollars will be reduced to 10%. An additional 5% will be charged to online bidders to cover the costs borne by Linwoods Auction to provide online bidding services. Sales tax will also be applied unless you have a valid resale license register with us on file, or arrange to have the item shipped outside of California.
