COLLECTABLES AUCTION 11 NOVEMBER; suitable lots are still being accepted (closing about 5 October). All sorts of items sell well – coins, postcards, cigarette and trade cards, and banknotes are
“staple foods” but our customers also have an appetite for artwork, golfing items, jewellery, musical instruments, books, militaria, cinema and pop/rock memorabilia, historic artefacts, and so on (and so on !).
Remember as a guide that as a vendor you are advised to sell no less than about £20 in one auction,
or to enter lots less than about £5/£10, or worth less than about £5/£10 per kilo. Note however that, for
administration purposes we treat this auction and the stamp sale the week before as one entity, and
only one “vendor fee” is charged, even if you have lots in both sales.

THE END OF THE SALE

© Robert Murray 2002

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



 

THE AUCTION VENUE is 700 yards West of our Shop, on Ferry Road. It has its own car park.
The bar (upstairs) is open 6-10pm and also serves a variety of food, teas and coffees. Please note that
we do not allow drinks at the viewing tables, but you are welcome to bring drinks down from the bar
once the auction has started.
 
 

Coming to the auction ?
Remember the Buy or Bid Sale - you can bring things along for sale on the night. We charge 25p per
lot entry fee, and 10% commission on sales. (1% optional insurance) (larger lots are charged £1 entry fee
if handed in at our shop, but the normal 25p if entered on the evening of the sale)
All sorts of things sell well - single stamps, sets, country collections, empty albums, mixed boxes,
and so on. If you have a number of lots to enter you can pick up a supply of forms from the shop in
advance.
 

The new Stanley Gibbons Commonwealth “2003” Catalogue is expected into stock at any moment.
This will be in a new style, listing only stamps of the period 1840 to 1952, and will be in one volume, priced at £39.95
We are uncertain as to what will be used to cover the later years, but will advise when any definite information comes to hand.
 

Bid Steps are published later in this catalogue, and our notes ask that people use these increments. However, perhaps about 20% of bids submitted by customers are not according to these steps. Any such bids are adjusted downwards to the next normal step. If you want to maximise your chances, please make sure that your bids match ours. Thanks !
 

* If you find time is tight to get bids posted in time, we are happy to accept bids by telephone, fax or email. Please always use first class post for sending bids.
* * The notes on the reverse of the Bid Form form part of our terms of business - please read from time
to time. Explanations of our terms, principles, practices, etc. can be had simply by asking at any time.
 

€uro Currency; We are now 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 0.6332, so we are allowing 63p per Euro (which is probably better than your bank will give you). You can also pay for auction lots in Euros (banknotes).
We cannot yet take auction bids or postal payments in Euros.
 
 

IMPORTANT INTERNET INFO !

website

At the time of writing, we have some technical problems !
Our stampshop.net site is not currently working, which is why the catalogue appears here.

emails

should be sent to our back-up address; stamps@blueyonder.co.uk
(that’s what back-ups are for !)
We confirm the receipt of email bids within 24 hours of receipt (usually sooner, but not normally on the Sunday)


 
 
 

SCOTEX 2002 is again at the SECC in Glasgow, on Saturday 19 October (11am-6pm) and Sunday 20 October (11am-4.30pm). There should be a leaflet accompanying this catalogue with further information.

COVERS  at  SCOTEX
As previously mentioned, we are now working at new stocks of covers which will be on sale at Scotex. Hopefully, we will have some thousands of new items available; UK, Commonwealth, Europe, and Overseas; postal history, commercial covers, postal stationery, first day covers, and philatelic covers.
Some of the new stock may appear in the shop before Scotex, but the majority will appear for the first time in Glasgow.
Everybody will get an equal chance at the new stock !  On the opening day of Scotex, nobody will be allowed to view our stock until the doors open at 11am.
Please note that this will be the only stock that we will take to Scotex, with two exceptions; {1} we will of course take any items ordered by customers, of any kind, and {2} we undertake to have a section of our stand stocked with material suitable for younger or newer collectors.
 

CHESTER 2002 should also be remembered, but that is a little further off, on 29-30 November.



Especially in the mixed lots, alternative bids, and/or spending limits, can be very useful to the bidder
 who cannot attend. Please feel free to ask for advice – using this option might get you a lot or two
you would have missed out on otherwise.

change if circumstances make it desirable.)
Up to £20, bids are in £1 steps. From £20 to £30, bids are in £2 steps.
From £30 to £50, bids are in £2 or £3 steps (i.e. £30, £32, £35, £38, £40, £42, £45, £48, £50).

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 the sale only.
Fax bids should be sent to us on 0131.478 7021. Please use the bid form that comes with your auction catalogue. Our machine will be operative during our stated opening hours from now until the date of the sale. As well as this, it will operate 24-hours from 10am on Saturday 28 September until 3pm on Monday 30 September. Please do not fax bids to us after that time.
E-mail bids should be sent to us at stamps@blueyonder.co.uk at any time from the moment you receive this catalogue until 3pm on Monday 30 September. 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. (Please do not use the normal address, which has a temporary problem .)


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.



Coming to the auction ?
Remember the Buy or Bid Sale - you can bring things along for sale on the night. We charge 25p per
lot entry fee, and 10% commission on sales (1% optional insurance).
All sorts of things sell well - single stamps, sets, country collections, empty albums, mixed boxes,
and so on. If you have a number of lots to enter you can pick up a supply of forms from the shop in
advance.
Lots can be entered for the Buy or Bid Sale in advance at our shop, by appointment. Small lots (single stamps, sets, single covers or cards, etc; i.e. that will fit on one of our standard large forms) are charged at the normal 25p entry fee, but any lots larger than this are charged £1 each entry. (The 25p entry still applies to larger lots if they are entered for sale on the night.)

 if requested).
A Buyer’s Premium of 10% (inclusive of global v.a.t.) will be added to the sale price of all lots.

 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 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.)

If you are not already on our mailing list, please send us £4 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 £5, Overseas £8.
Successful postal bidders should note that postage stamps are not an acceptable means of paying your account.

The telephone number at the Stewart’s-Melville Pavilion is  0131.551 2331 or  0131.552 1515. On the evening of the sale only you can use our mobile telephone number 07974 962649 (at other times it is very seldom switched on, and we do not collect text messages or respond to "missed calls" on our mobile).
 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.
