ATF Rul. 96-2 Clarification from the ATF
"In the case of estate-type auctions, the auctioneer acts as an
agent of the executor and assists the executor in finding buyers
for the estate’s firearms. The firearms are possessed by the
estate, and the sales of firearms are made by the estate. In these
cases, the auctioneer does not meet the definition of “engaging in
the business” as a dealer in firearms and would not require a
license.An auctioneer engaged in estate-type auctions, whether
licensed or not, may perform this function, including delivery of
the firearms, away from the business premises."
