A. No article shall be sold at the auction for which the license was obtained unless there is securely attached to the article sold a tag, card or label bearing accurate reference to the written inventory prescribed in section 44-1674, upon which shall be plainly written or printed a true statement of the kind, quality and weight of the metal of which the article is made or composed and the percentage or karat or purity of such metal. If the article is plated or overlaid, then the label shall contain a true statement of the kind of plate and percentage of purity thereof, and the kind of metal or material covered. If the article is a precious or semiprecious stone, the statement shall contain the true name, weight, quality and fineness thereof.

The tag, card or label shall remain securely attached to any article sold or offered for sale, and shall be delivered to the purchaser by the person selling the same as a correct description or representation of the article sold. If there is more than one of the same kind of article to be sold, then the tag, card or label shall indicate the chronological number of the respective articles of the same class sold.
