        1     Interesting old world collection in a well-filled Strand album collected between 1924 and
         
     1939. The bulk in numbers is in general world material, but the charm of the collection
         
     comes from the fact that the original collector was a well-travelled seafarer (eventually a
         
     captain) who seems to have been in the habit of buying a selection of the mint stamps
         
     currently on sale at many of the ports he visited (these also hold much of the value).
         
     Notable countries and areas include UK (2 used penny blacks, mint 2/6 and 5/- seahorses),

CREDIT CARDS

We are happy to accept MasterCard and Visa credit card payments, as well as payments by Maestro 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 (Maestro and Delta), plus cost of posting receipt slip.
