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.
