How our Stamp Auctions work

We do not have a room of bidders like a public sale but instead accept bids by mail, email, fax, telephone or via this site. At the sale close time the highest bid is reduced to one bid step above the next highest bid, or to the reserve price. If you'd like more information about how our stamp auctions work, please visit our Help pages, or to learn more about us, click here.

  • Antique Country Collections: These 57 lots are very old collections that come from two Stanley Gibbons 1936 “New Ideal” albums printed for the non- British Empire countries. We have divided these albums into single country lots to give buyers a chance to obtain an original olde tyme collection from their preferred area. Each contains mint and used stamps, sometimes with an example of both but otherwise with little duplication. Pages are often packed and a little untidy, the early issues often in mixed condition as is typical with these ‘olde tymers’ but chiefly fine - very fine throughout. Great old collections that pack a punch! Have fun!

  • Plus hundreds of Commonwealth lots, Great Britain lots, European lots – All countries in the world from Aden to Zululand! There are also some great sorter lots and collections.
