We knew Terry Wood well as a customer both in our shop and at our auctions, and it was clear how keen he was on his collections. His quest for more perfins was definitely helped by his outgoing nature - he was always happy to talk to other collectors and must have picked up many contacts who would look out for stamps for him amongst collections they had bought. He happily shared his enthusiasm.
Terry was also well known in The Perfin Society, where I understand he was very active in providing new information for the society's researches and publications, and in correspondence with other members. Some of that society's members will therefore have some idea of the content of this collection before the catalogue is published !
Our plan (at the time of writing) is that the entire collection will be offered in our general Stamps and Collectables Auction which will be run as a live online auction. The sale is penciled in our diary for Monday 22nd November, although this is still subject to change. Viewing will be available in our shop in the week before the auction, as well as every lot being illustrated in the online listings. (Although it is an online auction, bids can also be made by post or by email, or left with us in writing or by telephone.)
The U.K. perfin collection is likely to be offered in sections letter-by-letter, and foreign perfins by country or groups of countries. Some special areas such as UK Seahorses and other commemoratives will be sold as separate lots. And of course there are also sections of security overprints and allied material.
If you would like to be informed when the catalogue is available, please just send us an email and we'll send you the link in due course. We also produce a printed catalogue (to UK addresses), so your name and address please if you'd like that.
