A multiple lot means that there is more than one lot available to the highest bidder, however once the highest bidder has decided how many lots they want then the remaining lots will stay for sale at the hammer price.

The remaining lots will be available for all registered buyers to add to their account in the following days after the auction has ended but once they are sold there will be no more available.

How are the estimates calculated?

The estimates are calculated through selling similar lots at our live auctions over the past several years, however every auction is different and hammer prices can understandably be much higher or lower on occasion depending on buyers demand for the lot.
