Problems, problems, problems
We have a number of obstacles to overcome with this auction; postal strikes, roadworks, and internet.
[a] Post. At the time of writing, there are postal strikes in various parts of the UK (including Edinburgh deliveries). This may delay the delivery of this catalogue, and might disrupt delivery of bids to us. If you have any doubt about your bids arriving in time, please phone us to check.

[b] Roads. The gas main in the road outside our shop is being replaced. Local customers will be aware of the restrictions, but it would appear these are about to move. Part of Ferry Road between our shop and the auction venue is likely to be for eastbound traffic only. So, either approach from the west, or give yourself a few minutes extra to allow for delays. Parking around the shop is also squeezed, so allow time for a small extra walk. Access to the front of the shop is presently ok for loading.

[c] Emails. We have had problems with our emails in the past week, which hopefully seem to be fixed. As always, we will confirm email bids within 24 hours of receipt, so if you dont hear from us, phone to check. If you want to be sure, why not send your email to two addresses auction@stamp-shop.com and stamps@blueyonder.co.uk well not make you bid against yourself !

 

A Buyers Premium of 10% (vat-inclusive) will be added to all sale prices.

THE END OF THE SALE

uro Currency; We are happy to accept Euro cash payments in our shop. We display our rate beside the counter. We normally allow the market rate rounded down to the next whole penny. For example, at the time of writing, the market rate is 0.8579, so we are allowing 85p per Euro (which is probably better than your bank will give you). You can also pay for auction lots in Euro banknotes (postal customers please confirm before sending). We also accept payments in our shop in Euros, and we buy many of the old legacy currencies, as well as other coins and notes.

 

Most auctions include a few lots which, due to their large size or weight compared to value, will not be taken to the auction venue. They must therefore be viewed at our shop during the previous week, and successful purchasers will be responsible for their collection from us. The symbol for these is , and very generally speaking, there's a cut-off point of about 2 or 3 estimate per kilo weight.
If you attend the auction and buy any of these lots, you can either call at the shop during normal opening hours, or it is sometimes possible to arrange to pick up after the auction has finished (though please first speak to Mr. Murray to arrange this).



 

NORMAL BIDDING STEPS
We list here our normal bid steps for your information. This may be of help to bidders who are unable to
attend the sale, as any written bids received which do not fit our normal pattern would usually be taken
down to the next normal step. (We keep to these increments as much as possible, but do sometimes
change if circumstances make it desirable.)
Up to 20, bids are in 1 steps.                From 20 to 30, bids are in 2 steps.
>From 30 to 50, bids are in 2 or 3 steps (i.e. 30, 32, 35, 38, 40, 42, 45, 48, 50).
>From 50 to 100 in 5 steps.                           From 100 to 200, bids are in 10 steps.
>From 200 to 300, bids are in 20 steps.
>From 300 to 500, bids are in 20 or 30, and above this in 5% to 10% steps.

            Bids by post. Please use the Bid Form supplied, and send first class.
            Telephone bids will be accepted at any time before the sale (but the earlier the better). These bids should be confirmed in writing, even if the written confirmation will not reach us until after the auction. Numbers are 0131 552 1220, 0131 478 7021, or UK local rate 0845 0500 886.

            Fax bids; no fax facility is available.
            E-mail bids should be sent to us at auction@stamp-shop.com at any time from the moment you receive this catalogue until

If you want your purchases charged in this way, please complete the appropriate section.
Do not complete these details unless you want to pay by credit card, and to have the lots posted.
We have negotiated good rates with our bank, and are able to absorb the bank charges for this service ourselves, and therefore there is no additional charge for the use of this facility, as long as postal bidders give us their details in advance of posting.

 (Photocopies are available, at a charge of 15p per copy (colour copies A4 pages; 1st copy 50p, 30p per page thereafter), plus postage.)

 Open Bids ("Buy Bids") are not normally accepted. If such bids are made, they will be taken to mean a bid of ten times the printed estimate.
