                  Collections and Mixed Lots.
                                                        

        1     An original old Stafford Smith Permanent Postage-Stamp Album (published about the mid-
         
     1880s), containing a wide-ranging and worthwhile world collection. Most of the stamps
         
     are contemporary with the album (i.e. 19th Century), plus some a little later. Condition, as
         
     is normal for collections from this period, is quite mixed; some real horrors are included,
         
     but much is fine, and some very fine. The collection is peppered with individual stamps
         
     which are catalogued at tens (or hundred) of pounds, and an experienced philatelist (who
         
     has properly ignored most of the forgeries) has recently estimated the catalogue price of
         
     only the sound stamps at around £35,000. The best page must be one of Canada, which has
         
     the 1897 Jubilee set complete mounted mint (cat.£4,000., fresh and attractive, some marks
         
     on gum etc, and the 2c, 3c, and 5c are used). UK includes used 1840 1d (2) and 2d.
         
     (c.1,900 Europe, c.500 Asia, c.450 Africa, c.1,200 Americas, c.375 Oceania). Viewing by

     the result of a clearance in our own shop, and is unlikely to be available for viewing before

     is worthwhile but that we don’t need or do not wish to spend time on. (1,000s) þ £200.
        3     Two stockbooks with quite an interesting, though sometimes disorderly, mix. Strength in
         
     about mid-20th Century with some better Commonwealth early QE defins (m.m./u.m. sets

and usually within one hour on the auction day)

CREDIT CARDS

We are happy to accept MasterCard and Visa credit card payments, as well as payments by Maestro 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 (Maestro 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 30 October 2006.  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.
