you use the full amount of my absentee bid as the first bid when the
item was sold?
We may have been forced to under the following circumstance:
Your bid was one increment above the second highest absentee bid, and
we had two or more absentee bids.
This action is necessary to rightfully eliminate under bidders.

absentee bid should have won that item, why didn't it?
- Two floor bidders vie against one another, and due to the
random starting bid, and increments used, they reach the exact amount
of your bid. We were not authorized to go another increment for you, so
the floor bidder wins it. We strongly encourage you to attend the
auction in person.
- Note: Bids entered by those attending the auction in
person take precedence over absentee bids
- Another bidder submitted the same amount as you, but his
bid takes precedence over yours because it was entered sooner.
- You bid using our on-line system, and your bid was
reduced according to the increments as posted.
- Note: Jones and Horan will not be held responsible in
any way for any error in executing absentee or telephone bids.
We suggest Bidders plan to attend the auction, and bid for themselves.
