     Early birds have an advantage when viewing by mail. Harmers International allows viewing by mail

 up to ten days prior to a scheduled auction.

       We will send requested lots to a potential bidder via Next Day Air service for inspection. Potential bidders can view the lot for up to two business days and then return them to us. This saves on a bidder’s time and is often less costly than traveling to view the item personally.
