FORTHCOMING AUCTIONS; Our next auction is planned for 3 June 2019.
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 Buyers Premium of 10% (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 1.50 per lot + 6.50 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% + 25p (optional insurance 1% extra). Have a look at whats 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 7 for inland addresses. If you are not already on our mailing list, please send us 9 with a note of your name and address. Regular bidders and buyers may qualify for free renewal. Rates abroad are European countries 12, Overseas 15.
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 Stewarts-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.
