THE ROYAL BANK OF SCOTLAND £1 ONE POUND NOTE DATED 29TH JUNE 1921 serial no. D492 545, with handwritten signatures of the Accountant and the P. Cashier J Brown
Bidders must assume that diamonds and coloured gem stones (including ruby, emerald, sapphire, peridot, aquamarine) may have undergone a form of treatment unless otherwise stated. It should not be assumed that any diamond or coloured gem is untreated or is natural, unless accompanied by a gemmological laboratory certificate (which would be mentioned in the description). McTear’s will only describe gold/platinum/silver as such when a full UK standard set of hallmarks is present on the object. Other marks such as foreign import stamps will be noted in the description. As required by the Auctioneers Scheme, 20% vat will be applied to the hammer price on the sale of loose stones, which applies to diamonds, emeralds, rubies and sapphires and those lots are marked with **.
The condition of watches offered at auction varies widely due to factors including age, possible restoration, repair and general wear and tear. Condition reports relate to watches’ condition at the time of inspection by McTear’s specialists, McTear’s cannot guarantee watches to function beyond that point. Watches are not tested in house for accuracy, duration or water tightness. Buyers should assume that all watches purchased will require regular servicing to be useable and reliable. If McTear’s have been unable to open a watch case safely then the completeness and functionality of the movement within cannot be commented on or guaranteed. McTear’s cannot offer any form of guarantee that movements and/or all component parts are original to any watch.
