What is Lot Review?

     Sometimes potential bidders have questions that can be answered by specific questions to our staff. This is a lot review and can save the bidder the time and expense of either viewing the item in person or by requesting a mail viewing.

Lot Review at Harmers

       The Harmer family has a reputation for their accurate lot descriptions and Harmers liberal return policies reflect their confidence in their descriptions. Sometimes collectors have very precise questions that can be answered through an additional inspection or photograph. This is typically true for covers and large lots.


     As our time allows, we will accommodate your requests by providing additional scans, information, or images.

     We will answer a client’s question to the best of our ability. Some questions, like, “is the crease very bad”, are value judgments and do not represent a guarantee beyond that which is described in our catalogue.

     Large lots and remainder lots can require a considerable amount of time. Bidders wishing us to look for a “pig in the poke” should plan to undertake the excavation personally.


As time permits and within reason, we are ready and willing to assist our clients.
