Auctions

 
The above images represented a small selection of the JANUARY 12th auction  The AUCTION CATALOGUE is available here. The UNSOLD LOTS LIST is available here. Please note that lot 123 is Romans to Vinay and not Vinay to Romans as indicated in the catalogue.

There was a disappointing number of lots sold as there was an excellent selection of railway and military material and general postal history. Unsold lots are available at the reserve price.  They will be held until 16 February and then returned to the vendors. Lots are available to Members Only. Application for membership is available here.

Three auctions annually are carried out via postal or email bids. Items for sale in the auction are welcomed, see the instructions outlined in each auction catalogue. Please support the auctions by adding to your collections. Much hard work goes into running them and the reserves are lower than dealer prices! The Society also benefts from the 10% commission charged to vendors.

If you are unsure please email or ring Steve Ellis his details are also at the bottom of the page.

 

 

 

 

Apart from separate sections of railway and military material, other specific interests are mixed into the general postal history sections so do go through them carefully. Stamps are in four groupings. Please remember, unsold lots are listed on the society website one week after the auction closure. Images will be uploaded in due course.
