Conditions Of Sale


Estimates included in this catalogue are intended as a guide only. Lots may sell higher or lower. For most regular items the estimate is based on the current market value. However, for rare, unique and unusual items and bulk lots, the estimate serves only as an educated guess and may sell higher.

Collection and Payment

No lots are to be collected until payment has been made. Payment may be made by bank cheque. Personal cheques are ACCEPTED, although there will be limits unless known to us. Cheques for large amounts will need to be cleared, which may see delays in processing your order. Visa & Mastercard are accepted, however a fee of 1.5% will be added when payment is processed. No charges on debit cards. Postal bidders will be invoiced, and payment will be required immediately thank you (penalties and a fee will apply for any late payments.) ALL overseas clients: ONLY Bank Transfers will be accepted.


Lots stated to contain collections and/or undescribed items must be taken with all faults and errors (if any) and by reason of the foregoing the purchaser of any such lot shall have no right to reject same. Any discrepancy to be advised immediately.

Lots stated to be collected by local pick up only are to have prompt collection arrangements made (within 7 days), after which holding fees will apply at a rate of $50 per day until the collection of goods. 

Ownership of Goods

Ownership of lots shall not pass until payment in full of the purchase price, in the case of personal cheques accepted by the auctioneer, until clearance of same.

The Purchaser

The highest bidder shall be the purchaser. The auctioneer shall be the sole judge of who was the highest bidder.

All lots are put up for sale subject to any reserve price that may be imposed by the seller. The seller shall be entitled to bid personally or through any other person (who may be the auctioneer) and to withdraw any lot or lots either personally or through the auctioneer. Buyers must satisfy themselves as to the accuracy of their purchases at the time of delivery. The auctioneer cannot be held responsible for any discrepancy which might be discovered after the lots have been removed from the premises.  

In the event of any dispute between bidders for a lot, the auctioneer shall have absolute discretion to settle the dispute or (whether or not the lot has been knocked down as sold) to resubmit to lot for sale by auction at the sale in progress or as soon as practicable thereafter.

Any lots that have been viewed are non-returnable. Postal bidders who have a dispute regarding a lot must advise Roxbury’s on receipt of lots & discuss prior to any returns.*** Absolutely NOreturns after 21 days of auction, as vendors have been paid out by this time. Absolutely NO Returns on any Lots that have been tampered with.

Note: We do not accept responsibility for items that do not come up to Buyer expectation on PCGS Grading. No refunds will be issued as a result of this.


Postal Bidding

Postal bids are recorded in the order that they are received. When two bids are received for the same amount, the bidder whose commissions arrived first is the buyer, subject of course, to bids from the floor. All commissions are handled in strict confidence

Auctioneer Bidding

The auctioneer may bid for the vendor or for any prospective purchaser and any such bid:

                        (i)         need not be expressed to be effective, and

                        (ii)         if the highest bid to which a lot is knocked down shall be sufficiently evidenced if                                                               recorded in the sale book. If so required, buyers are to give their names and addresses and/or                                                to pay down the whole or part of the purchase price at the end of the sale.

Failure to comply with these rules in respect of any lot entitles the auctioneer to re-sell the lot.

Agents bidding on behalf of undisclosed clients do so with their responsibility both for payment and safe delivery of the lots. The auctioneer shall not be liable for any default of the purchaser or the vendor. Bids from minors will not be accepted unless accompanied by a full cash deposit or by suitable guarantees. Each lot is sold as genuine unless otherwise described.

The Auctioneer reserves the right to admit individuals to view or entry into the Auction Room and to refuse bids from same, for reasons not to be disclosed.

Items described as having defects are not returnable on account of their condition. Items graded are purely the opinion of the describer and may not necessarily be the opinion of others. Disputes arising to be settled at the auctioneer’s discretion.

Any dispute as to the meaning or operation of these conditions, a synopsis of which is printed above, shall be determined conclusively by the auctioneer.
