bidder at its sole and final discretion under the circumstances described above or under any other reasonable circumstances. Since the internet bids are not shown to Profiles in History until Profiles in History opens the lot on the floor, Profiles in History treats those bids the same as floor or telephone bids. In most cases, however, the floor and/ or telephone responds before the internet bid is presented, due to live Internet bid soft- ware or Internet lag time, so for consistency it is Profiles in History’s policy that floor bids and telephone bids are always consid- ered first over internet bids with floor bids being considered before telephone bids.Also please note that all Profiles in History lots purchased through the Internet carry a 28% Buyer’s Premium. Profiles in History strong- ly urges the bidder to resolve any questions about these policies or their implementation PRIOR TO BIDDING.
Successful Bids
The fall of the auctioneer’s hammer indicates the final bid. Profiles in History will record the paddle number of the buyer. If your salesroom or absentee bid is successful, you will be notified after the sale by mailed or emailed invoice.
Unsold Lots
If a lot does not reach the reserve, it is bought-in. In other words, it remains unsold and is returned to the consignor.
You are expected to pay for your purchases in full within seven calendar days of the sale or five calendar days from the invoice date, whichever is later, and to remove the prop- erty you have bought by that date.
After payment has been made in full, the buyer is responsible for ALL shipping charges and for arrangments using the buyers prefered shipper.

Pre-Auction Notification
Several weeks before the scheduled sale, along with thousands of Profiles in History’s worldwide subscribers, you should be receiv- ing a copy of the sale catalog in which your property is offered.
Some of the images representing group lots may show replicated photographs to illus- trate count. Items are sold “as is” no returns on group lots.
PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL ITEMS IN THIS CATALOG ARE SOLD IN “AS IS” CONDITION. We do our best to properly describe all materials herein, but normal wear and tear is common due to the fragile nature of the items including their age and use in film and TV productions. We are not responsible for a zipper not working, a piece missing from a prop, etc. Tears or alterations to the fabric or original design of a costume, or broken/missing pieces to a prop are to be expected. While many of the props, costumes and other memorabil- ia are currently displayable in their present condition, these items may require resto- ration to be returned to their pre-produc- tion/screen-used state. Many of the items featured have been modified and altered for subsequent productions and may dif- fer from the original production usage. Elements of fabric, sequins, trim, etc. are often replaced for subsequent productions. We recommend you to inspect items of interest in person.
The term “working prop” denotes that the prop was originally made to do something unlike a static prop. This does not mean that the prop works today, although in many circumstances it may be possible to have the prop restored to its original con- f iguration.
Due to the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision in South Dakota v. Wayfair, Profiles in History may be required under state law to collect sales tax for the wining bidder’s state. In such cases, the winning bidder’s invoice will reflect the sales tax due based on applicable state and local sales tax rates.
