Whilst every effort is made to ensure that these guides are not misleading, it is possible that the reserve price set for any lot may exceed the previously quoted guide price - as the seller may fix the final reserve price just before bidding commences. If a guide price is listed as 'tba', it means that there is no guide price at present - please do not call our office.
