Postal Auction P.A.567 May 20204th April 2020 by webspinner
WELCOME TO OUR CURRENT POSTAL AUCTION
Although the Convention has been postponed, the auction will still go ahead with the same finish date of 1st May. And unless there are more lockdown restrictions imposed I am aiming to send all the lots out to winning bidders on or about 6th May. Of course the most important thing is for everyone to follow the government guidelines. So please stay safe and keep well, and let’s hope that this wretched virus clears up soon.
And so to the highlights this time…. four Goodbody Boer War Celebrities CAG, a set of Allen & Ginter Parasol Drill, and six Wills Japanese Series, of which we depict just this one, Lot 17….
There is also a rare Lucy Dawson Wills Puppy, (our featured home page card), four Wills Indian Miniature Series, including the illustrated one below (LOT 25), three Fairweather Historic Buildings of Scotland, three Taddy VC Heroes 101-125, three Taddy Prominent Footballers London Mixture, a Glass Cricketer, four lots of Silks and five Wills Soldiers of the World Playing Card Inset(s)
In these times of isolation, why not take a bit longer to look at our catalogue, which will soon be attached below? There is a great mix of sets AND types, tobacco and trade, so don`t miss out. I look forward to receiving your bids.
Do note: we are trialling a new system as of now. The two auction sheets below are our two prior auctions of this year, but they now have prices realised added in as part of the main sheet. We hope you will find this useful. If it makes you see an unsold lot you rather liked but imagined would go high, or a lot that went cheaper than you were thinking of bidding, we apologise in advance. We say don`t put off bidding if you feel the urge. It costs nothing to bid, and if you are beaten at least you tried. And you started them off.
Please Note : If a member wishes to see a scan of a lot they are considering bidding on then I am only too happy to oblige. However due to the cost of printing and postage this will only be possible via email. In addition, if a member requires any more information about lots, please contact me using the details in our printed magazine.
