AUCTION PROGRAMME

 

     8 March 2010 Stamps     
     26 April 2010 Stamps     
     14 June 2010 Stamps and Collectables     
These dates, though fairly firm, are still provisional. The publication of the auction catalogue is confirmation of the date.

             

WINTER WEATHER !

As the sale date approaches we will doubtless be asked whether the auction is going ahead if the current cold weather continues, or more snow falls. For your guidance, the sale will proceed as long as we can get auctioneer, staff, and auction lots to the venue, and a long as the venue is habitable. In other words, we will try hard to go ahead as normal . . . . it will take more than a little snow to stop us !
Our websites home page (www.stamp-shop.com) will carry any announcements, and will be updated on auction day if necessary. If you decide not to attend in person on account of the weather, please get your bids to us as early as possible.


           Anybody not interested in the following Collectables section can safely leave the auction
              room (to look at the Buy or Bid Sale, or go upstairs to the bar). There will be a short break at
              the end of the non-philatelic lots, during which we will give warning of the resumption of
             
stamp lots.

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

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 0.8993, so we are allowing 89p 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 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).
