**  Please ensure that you use the correct bid forms. Also please note that we will assume, where we receive bid forms for both sales from one bidder at the same time, that we are to hold any purchases from the Stamp sale until after the Collectables, and send all purchases together.
 


THE END OF THE SALE

© Robert Murray 2002

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



 

THE AUCTION VENUE is 700 yards West of our Shop, on Ferry Road. It has its own car park.
The bar (upstairs) is open 6-10pm and also serves a variety of food, teas and coffees. Please note that
we do not allow drinks at the viewing tables, but you are welcome to bring drinks down from the bar
once the auction has started.
 
 

Coming to the auction ?
Remember the Buy or Bid Sale - you can bring things along for sale on the night. We charge 25p per
lot entry fee, and 10% commission on sales. (1% optional insurance) (larger lots are charged £1 entry fee
if handed in at our shop, but the normal 25p if entered on the evening of the sale)
All sorts of things sell well - single stamps, sets, country collections, empty albums, mixed boxes,
and so on. If you have a number of lots to enter you can pick up a supply of forms from the shop in
advance.
 

Bid Steps are published later in this catalogue, and our notes ask that people use these increments. However, perhaps about 20% of bids submitted by customers are not according to these steps. Any such bids are adjusted downwards to the next normal step. If you want to maximise your chances, please make sure that your bids match ours. Thanks !
 

* If you find time is tight to get bids posted in time, we are happy to accept bids by telephone, fax or email. Please always use first class post for sending bids.
* * The notes on the reverse of the Bid Form form part of our terms of business - please read from time
to time. Explanations of our terms, principles, practices, etc. can be had simply by asking at any time.
 

€uro Currency; We are now 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 0.6332, so we are allowing 63p per Euro (which is probably better than your bank will give you). You can also pay for auction lots in Euros (banknotes).
We cannot yet take auction bids or postal payments in Euros.
 
 

IMPORTANT INTERNET INFO !

website
Our previous stampshop.net website has closed, due to dreadful treatment by USA-based Verio/Network Solutions (which may come as little surprise to those who know much about them - they failed to follow the instruction to transfer the registration to a UK registrar, shut down the site, and then tranferred the name to a third party !).
Our main website is now based at www.stamp-shop.com (note the hyphen, and .com rather than .net). Please be patient with us while we fix odd links etc. 

emails
Emails should now be sent to murray@stamp-shop.com. We have a  back-up address of  stamps@blueyonder.co.uk
in case of problems.
We confirm the receipt of email bids within 24 hours of receipt (usually sooner, but not normally on the Sunday)

Especially in the mixed lots, alternative bids, and/or spending limits, can be very useful to the bidder
 who cannot attend. Please feel free to ask for advice – using this option might get you a lot or two
you would have missed out on otherwise.

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.

THIS IS HOW YOU CAN BID;
In Person. This is a public auction, and bids are made in the traditional manners.
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. A mobile number (07974 962649) can be called on the evening of the sale only.
Fax bids should be sent to us on 0131.478 7021. Please use the bid form that comes with your auction catalogue. Our machine will be operative during our stated opening hours from now until the date of the sale. As well as this, it will operate 24-hours from 10am on Saturday 2 November until 3pm on Monday 4 November. Please do not fax bids to us after that time.
E-mail bids should be sent to us at auction@stamp-shop.com at any time from the moment you receive this catalogue until 3pm on Monday 4 November. Please do not e-mail bids to us after that time. Please use the format and wording used on the bid form that comes with your auction
catalogue. (Please do not use the normal address, which has a temporary problem .)


CREDIT CARDS

We are happy to accept MasterCard and Visa credit card payments, as well as payments by Switch and Delta. This facility can be used by room purchasers (who pay their accounts at the auction), by other local customers (who pay their bill in our shop), and by postal buyers.
In order to deal with postal clients, our bid forms have been designed to make space for credit card instructions. 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. Only for postal buyers where card details are given after posting, we will charge 1.9% extra (Visa/MasterCard) or 18p (Switch and Delta), plus cost of posting receipt slip.



Coming to the auction ?
Remember the Buy or Bid Sale - you can bring things along for sale on the night. We charge 25p per
lot entry fee, and 10% commission on sales (1% optional insurance).
All sorts of things sell well - single stamps, sets, country collections, empty albums, mixed boxes,
and so on. If you have a number of lots to enter you can pick up a supply of forms from the shop in
advance.
Lots can be entered for the Buy or Bid Sale in advance at our shop, by appointment. Small lots (single stamps, sets, single covers or cards, etc; i.e. that will fit on one of our standard large forms) are charged at the normal 25p entry fee, but any lots larger than this are charged £1 each entry. (The 25p entry still applies to larger lots if they are entered for sale on the night.)

FORTHCOMING AUCTIONS; Our next stamp auction will be on 9 December.
 This auction is conducted according to the "Philatelic Auctioneers Standard Terms and Conditions of Sale" (available
 if requested).
A Buyer’s Premium of 10% (inclusive of global v.a.t.) will be added to the sale price of all lots.
Postal Bidders should remember that they may give alternative bids, or state a total spending limit.
 Telephone bids are accepted, but must later be confirmed in writing.
Material can be accepted at any time for inclusion in future sales. Our commission is 10% of the sale price, plus administration fee of 90p per lot + £4.25 per vendor (all plus v.a.t.). Full details on request.
 We DO NOT charge buyers a handling charge per lot, nor is there VAT added to any sale prices.
Please bid early. In the case of equal bids, the lot will be sold to the person whose bid was received first (unless free bidding in the room equals the top book-bid, although the Auctioneer will try to regulate the bidding in such a way as to avoid this).
 Apart from viewing the lots in person, you can get a better description of any lot, by telephoning or writing.
 (Photocopies are available, at a charge of 15p per copy plus postage.)
Remember the Buy or Bid Sale - bring items along on the night. We will try to sell them for you, at a charge of 10% + 25p (optional insurance 1% extra). Have a look at what’s on offer before and during the main auction. You can buy items outright or place a bid. (Larger lots delivered to our shop are charged £1 per lot entry fee.)
The annual subscription for our auction catalogues (paper copy) is currently £4 for inland addresses. If you are not already on our mailing list, please send us £4 with a note of your name and address. Regular bidders and buyers may qualify for free renewal. Rates abroad are EEC countries £4, other European countries £5, Overseas £8.
Successful postal bidders should note that postage stamps are not an acceptable means of paying your account.
 Prices realised for this sale will be published with our next catalogue. If you are not normally on our mailing list, the List of Prices Realised can be had by simply sending us a stamped addressed envelope. Alternatively, you can be put on our auction mailing list (see above).
The telephone number at the Stewart’s-Melville Pavilion is  0131.551 2331 or  0131.552 1515. On the evening of the sale only you can use our mobile telephone number 07974 962649 (at other times it is very seldom switched on, and we do not collect text messages or respond to "missed calls" on our mobile).
 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.
