A NOTE ABOUT Authenticity, Condition and Restoration 
Cowan’s strives to sell only authentic artifacts. We view the sheer number of fraudulent artifacts in the marketplace a threat to the collecting hobby, and frankly, place little stock in “Certificates of Authenticity” and prefer to offer old, well-documented artifacts. 

We recognize that there may be disagreement between various parties regarding the authenticity of an artifact. Before placing a bid, we invite you, or a surrogate to physically examine any artifact of interest. No artifact deemed spurious by a bidder or his surrogates may be returned after the fall of the auctioneer’s hammer. 

Wherever possible, we have noted restoration in the catalog description. Before the sale, we welcome your questions regarding any of the lots in the catalog and will be happy to provide more photographs or descriptions. Because of the care we have taken with these descriptions, no restored artifact may be returned after the fall of the auctioneer’s hammer.
