Postal Auction P.A.570 – November 2020

Some pre-auction jottings from our Secretary…. I hope everyone is staying fit and well. Like everyone else, I am still missing attending various fairs and auctions; let’s hope that things can start to improve in the not too distant future. I would like to inform you that there are quite a few lots in this auction with very low reserves. These have been set by the vendors as they just want their lots to sell. The first batch starts at lot 13 through to lot 31, and the second at lot 119 through to lot 131, the final batch starts at lot 135 through to lot 138. As can be seen, this last batch are in mixed condition. We have a set of Smiths Battlefields of Great Britain plus another 4 types, two Typhoo plastic Football Club Plaques, a Taddy Footballer, two Kinnear Jockeys, a couple of Faulkner Our Gallant Grenadiers, a part set of Anglo The New James Bond, some more Donaldson Sports Favourites and Golden Series in top condition, 2 Churchman Bobby Jones, a Franklyn Davey bird, American Eagle Occupations for Women and 5 Hill Lighthouse Series. Please have a good look through the Auction List; there is the usual mix of sets and types, tobacco and trade. I look forward to receiving your bids. If a member requires any more information about lots, or 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 by email.

And now, to the results – Spirited bidding this time, and more than one tied bid, where more than one person bid the identical amount. In these cases, marked in our results with an asterisk, the first bid received is the winner, so do bear this in mind when our next catalogue appears, and if you really want an item bid soon!

Our top priced set was Lot 32 Smith “Battlefields of Great Britain”, 6 cards being Good condition, 18 Good to Very Good, rest Very Good. Estimated at £340-380 it sold for £400. This is a specimen card

S548-050 : F. & J. Smith “Battlefields of Great Britain” (1913)

The highest price for a single card was brought by Lot 100, a type card by Churchman from their “Famous Golfers 1st Series” in the large size, of course it was card no. 7, Bobby Jones, (or, as he appears here R.T. Jones). This card was in Very Good to Excellent condition, estimated at £85-90 and sold for £210. And here it is:


Here is the rest of the catalogue complete with prices realised. Remember the minimum reserve on each lot of our auctions is just £5 – though some lots may have higher reserves.
