Lutherville Timonium, MD
I recently attended one of Cooper's antique auctions. Although I understand that item damages are not disclosed in their catalogue, they were very helpful when I e-mailed them for damage reports. Also, they conduct 3 days of exhibitions prior to the auction sale, so we had ample time to inspect all the merchandise. The sale runs pretty quickly so you really need to do your homework beforehand. I was very pleased with the accuracy of the descriptions in their catalogue and found their pre-sale estimates to be pretty close to the mark. They appear to have the highest quality antique sales in the area and get the best merchandise. Overall, I was pleased with the items I bought and my experience there. If you do your homework before you attend the sale, you should have the same experience.
