This special auction is devoted to the collection of Scouting 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 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 we have only included presale price estimates in the sections which are within our normal field of specialisation. In sections such as the china and pictures we give descriptions only. 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 on the day of the auction and will be displayed at the viewing. A list will also appear on our website (follow link from sale introductions at
                        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.
                        Illustrations; Many of the three-dimensional items in this auction have been photographed, and these images (marked : in the catalogue) can be seen at These will be available from about one week before the auction.
                        Viewing at Venue; We hope to have most of the more fragile lots out on open view. Note that we plan to make some restriction to the handling of these lots. Details to be finalised.
