Personal Property Preview: Monday March 13th from 5 PM - 7 PM Auctioneers Note: If there ever was an example of a "once in a lifetime" auction sale this one is for you. General Chester or "Chet" as he was most referred to was one of the most infamous WWII Airborne Combat Leaders and decorated Brigadier Generals of the 20th Century. Chet graduated from United States Military Academy at West Point and graduated in 1933. From there General deGavre joined the Airborne Command at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, becoming one of the first Army officers to learn how to parachute at the beginning of World War II. From his position as a parachute training officer, as well as chief of test and development he parachuted from over a dozen types of aircraft not previously used by parachutists-using experimental parachutes and improvised equipment-from low and high altitudes. He was awarded one of the nation's first Legions of Merit for these pioneering efforts which required both inventiveness and physical courage. He became chief of staff for the 1944 "Operation Dragon" airborne invasion of Southern France. General deGavre was awarded the Silver Star for his bravery as a regiment commander during the Korean War as well as the Legion of Merit with three oak-leaf clusters. General deGavre met the love of his life Teresa "Tita" Cameron while overseas in England and married in 1948. Together they purchased the 18th Century Wise Plantation home previously owned by the 33rd Governor of Virginia, Henry Wise. General deGavre made various restorations to the home which is now referred to as Deep Creek Plantation. The General had numerous and diverse interests in life: serving with troops in the field, parachuting, playing sports intensively, observing and carving waterfowl. While at Deep Creek Plantation he pursued his great talent for carving miniature waterfowl. As a boy in New Jersey, he carved his own hunting decoys, and later, as an officer in the Army in the field or in combat, he carved miniature birds for relaxation. These were the beginnings of a hobby that was to bring him national acclaim. The General exhibited his work throughout the East Coast in exhibits sponsored by the National Audubon Society in New York City; the Ward Foundation in Salisbury, Maryland; the Waterfowl Festival in Easton, Maryland; the Connecticut Audubon Society in Fairfield; The Wetlands Institute in Stone Harbor, New Jersey; and the Arts Festival in Charleston, South Carolina, among others. During his later years on the Eastern Shore, General deGavre enjoyed moving and restoring old barns and other farm buildings, making reproduction furniture and caring for his farm with its animals and waterfowl. He also served on the vestry and as senior warden of St. James Church in Accomac and as a member of Zoning Appeals Board of Accomack County. It is with great honor and pleasure that Allen and Marshall Auctioneers can bring this important private Eastern Shore Historical Collection to a once in a lifetime public auction sale.

BIDDER REGISTRATION: Bidder must be 18 years of age or older and is required to register for each auction. To participate in this Auction prospective bidders must register & provide identification information to establish that you are a valid bidder: At the time of registration, we collect information about you to verify who you are before you can bid. Bidder must submit information found to be current, complete, and accurate for proper identification. We collect credit card information to ensure that you are a qualified buyer. Bidder is responsible for security of his/her bidding number/user name and password, and any and all bids placed under the assigned number/ID. Auctioneer & Auction Host Site (HiBid/Proxibid) should be notified immediately if bidder believes his/her bid number, account and/or password have been compromised. There is no cost to register for an auction (A $1 Authorization will be charged when you initially register to validate your credit card by HiBid.) The Authorization is never deducted from your account. It verifies that the card being placed on file is legitimate. HiBid's computer system preforms an AVS (Address Verification Check) on the card you register with. The Billing information you provide HiBid will be validated with the card issuer through this authorization. If the Billing information on the Card doesn't match your actual billing address information the card may be rejected for possible fraud activity. Some Lenders/CC Companies don't participate in this AVS Check. If the HiBid computer system doesn't receive a satisfactory response it may kick out that credit card. If you have another Credit Card, preferably through a different lender try that. A&M Auctioneers and Appraisers, LLC, at its sole discretion, reserves the right to terminate any registration, deny any person for any reason, permission or access to bid, to reject any and all bids, and to suspend or ban Bidder from bidding in Auctions conducted by A&M. Bidder registration is not transferable or assignable. Highbid User Ratings. Every bidder starts with a reputation of 0 and, with activity, this score goes up or down to a value between -100 (very bad) and 100 (very good). Any bidder with a reputation lower than +1 will have their auction bid permission set to pending. We will verify your information if you are a new bidder with a reputation of "0". Once approved or declined you will receive an email confirmation. If you have a negative user rating/score on Hibid or Proxibid the Auction Co. at its sole discretion may decline any and all bids placed by your account. As a last resort if we find you to be a non paying bidder or using fraudulent registration and/or credit card information you may be permanently declined from bidding at our auctions. Once a new HiBid customer has participated/purchased items in a few auctions you will start to build up positive feedback with a successful pay and pickup transaction. Once you have a positive feedback rating your account will normally be automatically approved for auctions conducted on HiBid by A&M Auctioneers for a preset bidding amount. That amount is normally equal to the highest priced item in the Auction. If we have a vehicle that is worth $4,000 we would say that $5,000 would be the maximum high bid that would automatically be approved on your account. Anything above that would require approval. NOTE: If you are a new bidder to HiBid/A&M Auctioneers with a "0" feedback rating we will verify your registration information and assign your account a Maximum Preset High bid (Per Item) amount. This amount will be a Maximum of $500 per item and will depend on the Auction. This pre-approval amount will be reflected in the Bidder Acceptance email once your account has been approved. We recommend that when bidding place yours bids early so that you will know that your bid will be accepted. Don't wait until the final minute before the item closes to try to bid. In this scenario for example if you had been approved for a $500 max high bid per item and the bidding is already over $500. If you bid $750 your bid will be set to pending, a notification is sent to us, and it is nearly impossible to act upon that less than 60 Seconds. If you know you will be bidding higher than the amount that you were approved for in the email contact us prior to the item ending and we can make a manual change. If you are not comfortable or willing to register online which includes placing a credit card on file on our Secure Web server you may enter bids in person at our facility. Bids must be in writing and are legally binding just the same. A Valid Credit Card will still be required on the bid form. Valid Identification will also be required if you are unknown to the Auction Co. We will upload the bids placed by you on your behalf onto the online bidding server. 4. All items offered online will have a minimum starting bid as displayed in the online catalogue. Online bids lower than minimum will not be accepted. 5. CATALOGUE ERRORS & OMISSIONS: If a description does not match a picture in a lot, the description takes precedence. If you find an error please contact the Auction Co. and we will attempt to rectify it. All items are sold on an "as is, where is" basis, with all faults. In the event an item was listed in error or an item can't be located during pick up for any reason, the bidder agrees that their maximum recourse is a full refund of the item in question and that all other items bid on remain binding. By bidding you are acknowledging agreement with the terms above. Do not bid unless you agree to all of these terms. The Bidder is responsible for knowing which item is being bid on. If the Bidder is unsure, they should inquire or not bid. When becoming the winning bidder at auction you have effected a contract and will be expected to pay for items in which you were evidenced to be the successful bidder. Auctioneer will not honor "mistakes". 6. REVIEWING YOUR BIDS: During an auction you can check the status of your bids at anytime by logging into online server. Please be careful when placing bids. Placing a bid is a two step process. When you click bid button it will pull up a window verifying that you want to place that bid. If you want to place the next bid increment that the computer is asking for you can do that. If you desire to increase the amount of your bid this screen will allow you to bid a higher amount. Ensure that you type in the correct amount. If you make an error the Auction Co. can attempt to correct it, but it has to be in a timely manner before the item closes. In order to make a correction you must contact the Auction Co. at 410-835-0384. We have a staff member in the office during all online auctions. You are responsible for the bids that you place. Note that no bids can be withdrawn after the auction for any reason. 7. PROGRESSION OF THE AUCTION: Auctions are typically uploaded to the HiBid Auction Platform 30-45 days before the auction is scheduled to end. Some short notice auctions may be online for only 15-30 Days. Each Auction will have a scheduled time that each auctions items will begin closing. If an auction starts closing on a Wednesday night at 5 PM the first lot will be scheduled to close at that time. Depending on the quantity of items in the Auction lots may be scheduled to end anywhere between 20 to 60 seconds a part. Each lot will show a scheduled ending time. If no one bids in the final minute before a lot is scheduled to close that lot will close out. If someone bids within the final minute before that lot is scheduled to close, 1 Extra minute will be added to that lot and that lot only to allow additional time for people to bid. The remaining lots behind that lot will continue to close as scheduled unless someone bids in the last minute on that specific lot as well. This is done to prevent a bidder from 'sniping', all bids made in the last minute of the auction will force an item to stay open for an additional 1 minute. This gives the back bidder additional time in increase his/her bid if desired. This process will continue until all bidding has ceased on no one bids within the additional minute that was added. 8. PAYING FOR YOUR PURCHASES: Generally you will receive an "UNPAID" Auction Invoice on the day/night of the Auction immediately following the sale via email. The invoice/email will include information about the Auction Pickup information. You are responsible for checking your email/logging in to HiBid to verify if you won items. We process charges to the Credit Card placed on file at registration for you purchases by 10 AM the morning following the auction. We print the invoices once they are paid. You will receive your "Paid in Full" invoice at the scheduled pickup date/time. When you arrive at the pickup location find the Registration table. (Normally inside the home/Building) You will sign your invoice and then the A&M Staff will show you to your items and provide you with your paid invoice once completed. You are responsible for verifying that you take all of your items from the auction site. ACCEPTABLE FORMS OR PAYMENT: Effective immediately we are only accepting payment for online only Auction via the Credit Card on File with HiBid/Proxibid. We are no longer accepting alternate forms of payment. We are having weekly instances of bidders requesting to pay at pickup and then not showing up at the pickup to retrieve or pay for their items. We are then stuck with items that we have not been paid for. For this reason we are requiring that all invoices are paid in full prior to the Auction Pickup date. Please verify that you have funds available on the Credit Card that you register with. All purchases will be charged to the card that you choose at registration. We only have access to the card that you choose. You can place more than once card on file but we only have access to the card that you chose at registration. If you know that you don't have the funds available on the card on file please contact us before we process payments the next morning and provide a different card. You can also pay an invoice via Paypal if you have a Paypal account. Our email address for Paypal is Effective immediately if we have a card decline for an Auction Purchase there will be a $30 Service charge added to the bill as we then have to contact you and arrange an alternate form of payment. We have also had a few bad checks recently and for this reason we are only processing payments on the credit card on file in the future. If for what ever reason we do accept a check from you and that check bounces there will be a $30 Service charge. If you have any questions or concern's please contact us at 410-835-0384. 9. BIDDING NOTIFICATIONS: You can choose to be notified by e-mail during the auction if you have been outbid. Please note that outbid notifications are NOT sent out during the last two hours of the sale. You can watch each item end. If you are the high bidder on an item the item will be highlighted in Green in the Live Auction area. If the lot changes from green to red it means that you have been outbid and would need to bid again At a higher bid. The item will not change back to green until you have surpassed the high bid that the back bidder placed. 10. RESERVE: Seldom are items sold with Reserve. If an item is being sold with a reserve, it will be clearly marked and identified. For items sold with a 'reserve', you will be required to pay a minimum amount in order to win the item. An example would be a Titled vehicle that has a lien. We must attain a sufficient price for which the vehicle can be paid off and we can then provided marketable title. 11. Local Pickup is recommended. There will be no Shipping available for this Auction to be provided by the Auction Co. in most circumstances. Prompt pickup from the Auction Site is required. Buyer responsible for bringing all Tools, Manpower, Boxes & Packing materials to remove the items in a timely manner. IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO PICK THE ITEMS UP YOURSELF YOU MUST NOTIFY THE AUCTION CO. BY REPLYING TO THE INVOICE EMAIL AND DESIGNATE THE PERSON THAT WILL PICK YOUR ITEMS UP FOR YOU. YOU SHOUD ALSO PROVIDE A CELL PHONE # FOR THAT PERSON SO THAT WE CAN CONTACT THAT PERSON SHOULD THE NEED ARISE. 12. REMOVAL OF ITEMS: All items are sold in place. Items will be available in the condition that they were photographed. Buyers are responsible to remove items in a good workmanlike manner. You must bring any and all tools, equipment required to remove any items you purchase. You must bring any required labor to assist in carrying your items from the home to your vehicle. We will have staff onsite to assist buyers in finding their items, but they will likely not be available to assist in any way with removal of your items. Please plan ahead and come prepared. You are expected to bring boxes, packing materials, tape, tools, wheel carts, dollies or anything else needed to remove your items in a timely manner. Any items not removed by the times shown will be deemed abandoned regardless of the price. Any plumbing must be shut off before being disconnected and any electrical that is disconnected must be capped. If you can't pick your items up during the time scheduled, you are responsible for designating someone to pick your items up during the time that we are scheduled to be there. Many of these auctions are conducted offsite in a consignor's home. We have contracted with that person the dates that we are provided access to the home. Bring back of items purchased at an Onsite Auction. If you want your items returned to our Auction Facility/dropped off at a shipper we can provide that service for a fee. YOU MUST COORDINATE THIS WITH THE AUCTION CO. PRIOR TO THE AUCTION PICKUP. This way we can determine the hauling/bring back fee and charge that at the time we process payments for the purchases. We can also then coordinate the trailer size, packing materials, padding, manpower required to remove your items from the Auction Site. We also secure, pack and remove those items from the Auction Pickup Site prior to the local pickup attendee's arriving so that your items are Safe & Secure. If you purchase large groups of items for Example: A Room lot, a Closet Lot, A Garage or Shed lot, Contents of a China Cabinet, etc… please ensure that you are able to pick those items up at the Auction Site during the designated pickup time. We are willing to hall smaller lots that will fit into a 12 Gallon plastic tote but we are not willing to haul a Large Room lot. It's not logistically and financially cost effective for us to do so. We often have large groupings of Glassware that are sold together as a lot. It is impractical for to the Auction Co. to wrap large groupings of fragile/breakable items and then transport them. Please ask about hauling prior to bidding of these types of lots or just be willing to pick them up at the Auction Site. We pack items that we are hauling back to the Auction Facility/To the shipper in Plastic Totes and use Bed/Puppy pads to wrap fragile items. Once delivered to the UPS Store they will unload the items and use their own boxing/wrapping materials to protect your items during shipment. AGAIN YOU MUST NOTIFY THE AUCTION CO. IF YOU NEED YOUR ITEMS BROUGHT BACK WITH US/DROPPED OFF AT A SHIPPER. DON'T JUST EXPECT THAT WE CAN READ YOUR MIND.

This fee will correspond to our return fee depending on the size of the lot. A&M Auctions will determine if the items are brought back or disposed of. ******************************************************************************************************************** REPEAT NO SHOW VIOLATIONS: We are now keeping track of customers that have a serial No Show history. Most do not contact us ahead of time, they just don't show up at the specified location/date/time. Then we have to remove their items from the Auction Site.

NOTE: This is on a case-by-case basis and is determined by the Auction Co. 99% of the items that we sell will go to the UPS Pack & Ship Store. SHIPPING NOTE HIGH END JEWELRY, GOLD/PLATINUM ITEMS: The Auction Co. will also be responsible for the shipping of most High Dollar Jewelry items including Gold/Platinum, Rare Gemstones, Gold Coinage and similar items. We have had a few recent experiences with fraudulent bidding activity with Gold, Silver & Jewelry Purchases. If we suspect any fraudulent activity, we reserve the right to hold these items until we can determine the validity of the purchase. This can be accomplished on our end by contacting the Card Issuer and having them contact the buyer to verify the purchase if needed. We will not ship these items to any address other than the verified address associated with the Credit Card. The Auction Company may also require payment via Certified Bank Check and proof of Identity by requesting a copy of a Valid Driver's License. ______________________________________________________________________________ ITEM SIZING NOTES: The Auction Co. Sets the Return Fee on items that are Brought to the A&M Facility and/or delivered to a 3rd Party Shipper. The fee's are detailed below. Additional fees may be incurred due to the location of items that are requested to be brought back from an Onsite Auction Site by the Auction Co. If the Auction site is a long travel distance away from our Auction Facility and we have to Drive 30, 40, 50+ miles to pickup the items and then 30, 40, 50+ miles back to our facility there may be an additional charge. If you purchase a large item/piece of furniture and its on the 2nd/3rd Floor or down in a basement in a home there may be an additional charge. THE AUCTION CO. STAFF WILL DETERMINE WHAT SIZE CATEGORY YOUR ITEMS FIT INTO. A SMALL ITEM is described as an item that can easily be placed into a small box or beer flat and transported in the passenger area of a car. These items could include: Small collectibles, glassware, China, pottery, small prints or pictures, hand tools etc… For a small item there will be a minimum Charge of $20 for the 1st item and $10 per additional item if the items will fit into a small tote. If we have to wrap & box glassware, china or other delicate items there will be an additional charge. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- A MIDSIZE ITEM is described as an item that can easily be carried or moved by 1 person and may include: lamps, larger prints, faux plants, computers, Stereo Equipment, Vacuum cleaners, side chairs, end tables, electronics, small TV's or larger boxes of items etc… For a midsize item there will be a minimum of $35 for the 1st item and $15 per additional item(s). ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- A LARGE ITEM is described as an item that may require two people or a person with a hand cart to move and may include sofa's, upholstered chairs, Larger Pieces of furniture, dressers, bookcases, Hutches, Dining room tables, China Cabinets, Servers, small personal safes, large TV's, beds, entertainment centers ect… If you purchase Large items, IE any type of furniture (Not including Oversized items including Appliances, Pianos, Vehicles, Tractors or other large items) will be $75 for per lot/item to return them to our Auction Facility. This applies to single pieces of furniture. If you purchase a 5 Piece Bedroom Suite or 10 Piece Dining Room Suite this will cost more as we will likely have take a 2nd Diesel Truck and Trailer to the Auction Pickup Site to load a large set like this. You are looking at minimum of $150-200 up to move something like this. It is going to depend on the size of the item(s) and the distance involved. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- An OVERSIZED ITEM is described as an item that requires specialized equipment to move including but not limited to Lg. Appliances, Pianos, Vehicles, Tractors, Boats, Motorcycles, Gun Safes or other large items. If you purchase a larger item that requires specialized moving equipment you will need to call us for a quote. We may need to bring special Moving Equipment/Larger Trailers and will price the move accordingly. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- LARGE GROUPS OF ITEMS If you purchase large groups of items for Example: A Room lot, a Closet Lot, An Attic or Basement lot, A Pantry Lot, a Garage or Shed lot, Contents of a China Cabinet, Contents of a Closet etc… please ensure that you are able to pick those items up at the Auction Site during the designated pickup time. We are willing to hall smaller lots that will fit into a 12 Gallon plastic tote but we are not willing to haul Large room sized lots of items. It's not logistically and financially cost effective for us to do so. We often have large groupings of Glassware that are sold together as a lot. It is impractical for to the Auction Co. to wrap large groupings of fragile/breakable items and then transport them. Please ask about hauling prior to bidding of these types of lots or just be willing to pick them up at the Auction Site. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEMS THAT CAN'T BE MOVED BY THE AUCTION CO. There will be items that we are not capable of moving in most circumstances. IE Sheds, Pool Tables, Hot Tubs, Grand Pianos, Fuel Tanks, Farm Machinery, Implements, Heavy items that can't be lifted by hand. Large items that require a Forklift, Rollback or tow truck. These types of large items will have to be picked up by the purchaser or someone hired by the purchaser to move those items. ______________________________________________________________________________ NO SHOW, REMOVAL, HAULING, TRANSPORTATION FEES THERE IS A MINIMUM $25 CHARGE PER LOT FOR A NO-SHOW AT SCHEDULED PICKUP. This per item fee will correspond to the Shipping/Pickup under the Auction Details on HiBid. Small item = $15, Midsize Item = $35, Large Item = $75 Updated policy on removal of items from a home where we conducted an onsite online only auction. We have had a lot of requests for the Auction Co. to either deliver, transport or return items from the Onsite Auction locations to our Auction Facility. To facilitate this, we have added a 14' trailer to our fleet that we will bring with us to each pickup. We use this trailer to hauls items that we use at the Auction Pickups (Tables, Dollies, Carts, Ramp, Blankets, Pads, Plastic Totes). I can fit a decent amount of smaller items up to single pieces of furniture. If you buy a Dining Room or Bedroom Suite and request it be moved we may have to bring another diesel truck & trailer. These fees, if known prior to the Auction Item Billing will be included with the Payment for the items. If payments have already be processed you can pay Cash for the Hauling Fee's at the time your items are picked up. If items are not picked up in a timely manner the associated hauling fees will be charge as a separate charge on the card on file. Items must be pickup by the following Wednesday after the Auction Date. If items are not picked up or shipping arrangements made within 7 days from the date of the Online Auction your Items will be forfeited and resold or disposed of at the Discretion of the Auction Co. ______________________________________________________________________________ DELIVERY OF ITEMS TO YOUR HOME Delivery of items from the Auction site to your home. We may be able to offer delivery of items from an Auction to your home. This will have to be on a case by case basis and will depend on our schedule. We often work 6+ days a week and are extremely busy most of the time. If you are located near the auction location or along the corridor of our return to our Auction Facility this may be feasible. The delivery would have to occur on the Auction Pickup Day as we are on our way home. We would be willing to drive 5 or 10 miles outside of the corridor that we return home from. If you live 20 miles in the opposite direction that likely would not be something that we are willing to do. If you have any questions about this service please contact Jeff Smith via email: or call at 410-835-0384. This is something that would need to be coordinated prior to the pickup day. With the cost of Diesel Fuel and Labor, this service will be fairly expensive. We generally ride together in one vehicle and may have 3-5 employee's. If it takes us an extra hour to deliver an item to you that's 3-5 people that I am paying an extra hour for their workday.
