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 0.8242, so we are allowing 82p 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).
