Signed Abraham Lincoln Commission Letter


Consignment Corner:

1. New Lower Commission Rates.  Commission rates on large collections and estates are negotiable based on the quantity and quality of the items being offered and the amount of work involved in preparing the items for auction.  For a limited time, we are offering 0% sellers commission on amounts over $100,000.  Please contact us for an initial consultation.  We generally charge a flat or tiered commission on each item, and the seller generally pays the advertising and moving costs.  All commissions and fees are deducted at the end of the process, so you pay nothing upfront and we provide insurance coverage on your items while they are in our possession.

Of course, fees are really only half the story.  We strongly believe that the most important factors that determine the selling price of an item are the knowledge and reputation of the seller.  We earn our commission by achieving the highest selling price possible for you!  Our research indicates that we earn most, if not all, of our commission solely from achieving higher than average selling prices
