IMPORTANT; Viewing Arrangements for “Not-To-Auction” Lots.

This relates to all lots in this auction which have the “[1a]” symbol in their description, signifying that they will not be taken to the auction venue. It will be arranged so that these lots can be viewed at our shop premises on auction day, and that purchases can be collected that same evening.
{a} In addition to the normal viewing arrangements noted above, any lots marked “[1a]” can be viewed at our smaller shop at 1A Inverleith Gardens, on Monday 17th February from 3pm to 6.45pm. Should there be pressure on available space, viewing will be at the discretion of our staff.
{b} After purchasing and paying for any “[1a]” lots at the auction venue, customers can take their receipted invoice to our shop and pick up these lots, from 8pm until ten minutes after the last customer has been cleared through accounts.
{c} Customers can still opt to collect their lots from us later in the week during shop opening hours.
{d} There is no parking directly outside 1A, so customers will have to park a little further along Inverleith Gardens. While we can lend you a trolley, there will be no available staff to carry boxes.

 

Phoning for results ?  Note that our shop does not open until noon on a Tuesday, and
we do not normally answer the phone on the day after the auction until after that time.

 

Follow us or connect online – as well as our main website at www.stamp-shop.com we can be found on social media by searching for “Robert Murray Stamp Shop” on Facebook and LinkedIn.

Our Website will still be the first port-of-call for most information, but the Facebook page is a useful place for extra auction pictures, plus news, updates, snippets, and comments.

FORTHCOMING AUCTIONS; Our next auction is planned for early c.May 2020.
This auction is conducted according to the “Philatelic Auctioneers Standard Terms and Conditions of Sale” (available if requested), with the exception of Clause 6, where “Scottish” should be substituted for “English”.
A Buyer’s Premium of 12% (inclusive of global v.a.t.) will be added to the sale price of all lots.
         Telephone bids are accepted, but must later be confirmed in writing. Alternatives and limits are accepted.
Material can be accepted at any time for inclusion in future sales. Our commission is 12% of the sale price, plus administration fee of £1.70 per lot + £7 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 minimal plus postage, or request scans by email.)
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% + 50p (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 is currently £10 for inland addresses. If you are not already on our mailing list, please send us £10 with a note of your name and address. Regular bidders and buyers may qualify for free renewal. Rates abroad are European countries £15, Overseas £20.
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 (mobile 07974 962649).
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.

Any invoices remaining unpaid fourteen days from the auction date (or after delivery to a postal buyer) will attract interest at the rate of 2% per month or part thereof.
