Lang's Timed Auction

The timed auction catalog will go live and bidding will commence Friday, July 13 at 7:00pm.

After 10 days of bidding, on Monday, July 23, if any lot receives a bid during the last 10 minutes of the auction (6:50-7:00pm), an extension timer will start on that lot for 10 minutes. Each time another bid is placed, the 10 minute timer resets, until no further bidding occurs, then each lot will end as the timer runs out. When all lots have closed, the successful bidders will be emailed an invoice for their purchases.

There will be no phone bids or live audience bids - this auction will be online only.

Start: Friday, July 13, 2018 - 7:00pm EST
End: Monday, July 23, 2018 - 7:00pm EST
