Our last ‘public’ auction on 12th September included an outstanding offering of Indian classic stamps, complete collections of never hinged mint German stamps, a retired dealers single 'pension fund' lot which sold for for £11.400 plus the usual amazing stamp collections, accumulations & stocks
Over 95% of the lots sold with terrific participation from clients around the world. So many of our bidders whether they were collectors or dealers were enjoying their extra time with the more esoteric and complex ‘mixed lots’ during lock-down. The India philatelists took advantage of a unique offering of items with one stamp selling for £6000! Although we couldn't have a public room auction event you could still see and listen to the auctioneer and join the action live online.
Along with all other auctioneers we can't offer a room auction event we are able to hold lot viewings at our offices. Make the trip! Consign or buy, you couldn't make a better decision than Cheshire Stamp Auctions, Sandafayre's public auction.
