The figure at the end of each description is our estimate, in pounds sterling.

Estimates are in Pounds Sterling do not include the 10% buyer's premium.

After the main listings you will find various information and instructions. This is followed by a sample bid form, and a copy of the the notes that appear on the reverse of our bid forms.

This is a public auction, in which written/telephone/e-mail bids are also accepted. If you are bidding with us for the first time, please bid by two of these methods with the same bids (e.g. by post and by phone, or by telephone and by e-mail), or bid in good enough time for us to get back in touch with you with any queries.

Stamps and Collectables Auction, 31 March 2014                  Page 26       Estimate.

Parcels;
At some parcel weight bands, Royal Mail are now considerably dearer than some other carriers. Weve almost always used Royal Mail and used postage stamps to pay the postage. We have not in the past charged any packaging fee above the cost of postage.
If we are asked to use a carrier to send a package (rather than Royal Mail), and are not therefore using postage stamps, we will charge 5 per consignment for packing, plus 1 per further parcel (i.e. 1 parcel 5, 2 parcels 6, 3 parcels 7, et seq.).
We trust youll understand !
We will continue to use Royal Mail as our default service, but ask customers to say if theyd rather we used another parcel company.

Because of our attendance at Congress, our shop will be CLOSED on Saturday 12th April.





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).
