    (a) display or maintain, or suffer to be displayed on or about any premises or vehicle any sign or advertisement calculated to lead to the belief that that person, firm or corporation is authorized to carry on the business of an auctioneer; or

    (b) publish or make or cause to be published or made any public advertisement or announcement to the effect that any sale by auction of any property whatsoever, not being a sale which may be made by an unlicensed person, will be made, conducted or carried out by or under the direction or supervision of that person, firm or corporation, or that instructions have been received to make, conduct or carry out any such sale.

    (2) A person who is the holder of an occasional licence under this Act shall not, for the purposes of this section, be regarded as being the holder of a licence under this Act except in so far as any sign, advertisement or announcement relates solely to the matters in respect of which that occasional licence was granted.
