Auctioneer Notes:

Welcome to another edition of Sunflower Seeds. Well, the big day is finally here. On Tuesday, we will sell the Significant Historical Artifacts and Items from The Geiger Collection, a collection of remarkable items ranging from original oils of George Washington to Civil War artifacts to modern Presidential memorabilia and the finest van Gogh letter in private hands. The public exhibition will last from 10am to 5pm on Monday. We will open again at 9:30am on Tuesday for the preview. I invite you all to attend this extraordinary event. For those of you who can't attend in person, there are several absentee bidding options: eBay Live, Absentee and Phone Bidding. Please scroll down for further details.

On December 8th, we will be selling a 1968 Cadillac El Dorado owned by Elvis Presley. Elvis owned this car for over a year around the time of Lisa Marie's birth. One day it wouldn't start, and Elvis shot it in the right front fender with a 45 pistol. The bullet hole remains to this day. The car will be sold as part of a larger Sports, Historical and Entertainment Memorabilia Auction. We expect to publish the complete catalog in mid-November. Please keep an eye on our website.

Consignment Corner:

1. Low 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
