2One of the best mixed lots we’ve had for a while - maybe not as far as quality or selection of high cat. items is concerned, but for sheer sorting delight ... well! Should keep you out of mischief for the weekend! All manner of philatelic items crammed into this box. (10,000s)40

What we’re saying is, don’t just give it a cursory glance! (1,000s)38

Shop News

As there's only two weeks between the last auction and the production of this catalogue, there's not much news I'm afraid! Just to make you aware of some of the things in this sale - apart from the usual selection of better Commonwealth material and several useful mixed lots that are definitely worth checking carefully, there's the estate of a collector/dealer. Bernard Holbrook, who had collected stamps since the 1930s had found his niche in life once he'd retired, as a stamp dealer, selling his wares mainly on e-Bay and mail order. His estate (the bulky part of it) is included in this sale - his stockbooks mostly well annotated, many stamps with labels and ready for anyone willing to take his passion forward. There’s even the odd display stand for the budding dealer among you!

Auction Viewing

Viewing is available in the shop during the week preceding the auction; at the venue on the evening of the sale from 5:45, or by appointment. Sorry, there is no shop viewing on the day of sale.

Shop Opening Hours
