PHOTOGRAPHS AND DESCRIPTIONS:
We make every effort to ensure that the descriptions and photographs that we post are accurate and represent the items being offered for sale. However, we are not responsible for errors in descriptions or photographs. In some photographs, multiple items may appear to be joined as a single unit, however you should not assume that a lot consists of more than one item simply because various items appear connected or are featured in the same photograph. Also understand that, on occasion, the wrong photograph may be displayed for a given item. At all times, you are bidding on items as they are described, not as they appear in any photograph.
