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/fax/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.

NEW BIDDERS;

New customers attending one of our sales in person for the first time, and intending to bid, are invited to make themselves known before the sale starts. This saves the auctioneer from having to ask for a name during the sale.

Scouting 7 November 2005                                Page 2                                   Estimate.

 

 

This special auction is devoted to Scouting, Mafeking, and allied material formed by the late David C. Jefferies of Edinburgh. He was as well known for scouting interests and activities as he was for philatelic, and in his collections his interests often went hand in hand.

We held a similar auction in June, at which time we believed we were offering his complete collection. However, everything in this catalogue has appeared from his estate since then; sufficient to warrant a second sale. We understand there is no more remaining.

We have tried here to present material for sale in such a way as to allow collectors the chance to obtain interesting single items, while there are other lots which will suit dealers or enthusiastic collectors.

Please check through the different sections, as some items do not clearly fall into one category !

 

                                                        
              Estimates; Please note that in the china and metalware section we give descriptions only, without estimates. Any customers seeking guidance can approach us for our current feelings. Starting prices will be disclosed at any time, but top bids will never be disclosed. There are no reserves.
              A final list of starting prices will be published in the day or two preceding the auction and will be displayed at the viewing. A list will also appear on our website (follow link from sale introductions at www.stamp-shop.com/scouts2005b.html).
              Clearly, some customers may well enter bids at just a few pounds on lots that end up selling for hundreds, and we hope that no one will feel any embarrassment through this.
              We are not in the habit of selling unsold lots after the auction has finished. {1} We have very few unsold lots anyway. {2} Any unsolds will probably appear again in a future sale. (There were no unsolds in the June Scouting sale).

         
     Illustrations; Some of the three-dimensional items in this auction have been photographed, and these images (marked : in the catalogue) can be seen at www.stamp-shop.com/images.html. These will be available during the few days preceding the auction.
              Viewing at Venue; We hope to have most of the more fragile lots out on open view. Note that there will be some restriction to the handling of these lots.

           Stamps and Covers
      Ü     Throughout the stamp sections, stamps and miniature sheets are generally in fine condition,
         
     decently mounted using hinges.
             
y at the end of a description indicates that covers and cards have been mounted using
         
     adhesive tape (“sellotape”) on the reverse in the manner of a large stamp hinge; this will
         
     almost certainly leave at least a mark when removed. Non-stamp items (badges etc.) are

THIS IS HOW YOU CAN BID;
In Person. This is a public auction, and bids are made in the traditional manners.
Bids by post. Please use the Bid Form supplied, and send first class.
Telephone bids will be accepted at any time before the sale (but the earlier the better). These bids should be confirmed in writing, even if the written confirmation will not reach us until after the auction. A mobile number (07974 962649) can be called on the evening of sale only.
Fax now discontinued.
E-mail bids should be sent to us at auction@stamp-shop.com at any time from the moment you receive this catalogue until 3pm on the auction day. Please do not e-mail bids to us after that time. Please use the format and wording used on the bid form that comes with your auction catalogue. (We have a back-up email address of stamps@blueyonder.co.uk in case of problems.)
 
 
CREDIT CARDS

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


VIEWING; please note that lots can normally be viewed in our shop during the one week prior to the auction. It is sometimes possible to view auction lots outside the normal times, but this must be by special arrangement.

FORTHCOMING AUCTIONS; Our next stamp auction will be on Monday 5 December 2005..
 This auction is conducted according to the "Philatelic Auctioneers Standard Terms and Conditions of Sale" (available if requested).
A Buyer’s Premium of 10% (inclusive of global v.a.t.) will be added to the sale price of all lots.
Postal Bidders should remember that they may give alternative bids, or state a total spending limit.
 Telephone bids are accepted, but must later be confirmed in writing.
Material can be accepted at any time for inclusion in future sales. Our commission is 10% of the sale price, plus administration fee of £1 per lot + £4.75 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 charge of 15p per copy (colour copies A4 pages; 1st copy £1, 50p per page thereafter), plus postage.)
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 what’s 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 (paper copy) is currently £5 for inland UK addresses. If you are not already on our mailing list, please send us £5 with a note of your name and address. Regular bidders and buyers may qualify for free renewal. Rates abroad are EEC countries £4, other European countries £7, Overseas £10.
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 Stewart’s-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.
