You are bidding on a Old hickory Shapleigh's Hammer Forged Cleaver 1843-1934. About 12" long. Blade is just under 7" long. Two of the rivets are missing from the backside (that's why there is tape residue on the handle). Otherwise it is in good used condition.
ALL SALES ARE FINAL.
U.S. Bidders only, unless approval is given prior to bidding. Item condition is described to the best of my ability. Used or vintage items may show signs of use or age. This is normal and should be assumed. I will note any defects in an item if I see them and will typically photograph them so you, the potential buyer, can see the extent of such defect. E-mail me with questions. I can take more or detailed pictures if desired. Because I’m on dial-up. e-mails may not be answered in the last few hour or so of an auction.
Winning bidder must contact me within 3 days of auction close. Remember to provide a street address (and telephone number for large items) during Check-Out. Paying with PayPal constitutes contacting me as I get a notice from them. If contact is not received in a timely manner, a non-paying bidder alert may be filed.
Payment: Payment is in U.S. funds only. Buyer pays shipping & handling unless noted. Payment must be received within 7 days of auction close, unless prior arrangement have been made. I accept PayPal (preferred) or Personal Checks (checks must clear). Please Note: International buyers MUST pay via PayPal (no exceptions). If paying with anything besides PayPal, please include the auction number and the description with payment. A handling fee is added to orders to help offset packaging expenses (boxes, tape, labels, etc.) and delivery confirmation (if available). If payment is not received in a timely manner, a non-paying bidder alert may be filed and the item will be relisted or offered as a second chance.
Shipping: I will combine shipping for multiple auctions, if possible. I ship by USPS for most items. Larger items are shipped by UPS, FedEx or other means. Insurance is required for glass mirrors and signs or other fragile items, optional for everything else. Shipping outside the U.S. can be very expensive, so keep that in mind. I use recycled packaging where possible to reduce shipping costs.
Return/Refund policy: Care is given to ensure the auction item arrives in the condition listed in the auction. If the item is damaged in shipping, it is the responsibility of the shipper to make good. I can’t be held responsible for items lost or damaged during shipping (if you do not insure your purchase). If the item is not as stated in the description, please contact me at email@example.com. If the item is sold “as is”, no refund will be given. Any item shipped outside the U.S. is considered sold ‘as is’.
