Welcome to our first online timed auction, which we've called our "Collectors' Auction" as most lots are suitable for collectors - single items, covers, small collections, and cheaper lots.
The sale is now live and you can bid on any lots. At 1:00pm on Monday 22 March the first lot will end, the next thirty seconds later, another thirty seconds after that, and so on until about 9:30pm.
INSTRUCTIONS AND RULES for online bidders;
If you are new to this platform, please make sure you read the Terms and Conditions - both for EasyLive Auction and for ourselves. You must register with EasyLive Auction before you make any online bids. EasyLive Auction charge a fee of 3% + v.a.t. (= 3.6%) on the selling price, which we collect on their behalf (there is no option for the single up-front fee in timed auctions). No bids will be accepted below the lower estimate price.
VIEWING; Due to Covid restrictions, viewing in person is not allowed. To mitigate this, we have provided more illustrations than might be normal, and are willing to provide extra information - all requests will be considered.
TELEPHONES; Our phone lines are only staffed at certain times. In the fortnight preceding this auction this will be; Monday 8th March 11am-1pm, Tuesday 9th 2pm-4pm, Wednesday 10th 10am-11am, Thursday 11th 3pm-5pm, Friday 12th 2pm-4pm, Saturday 13th 2-4pm, Monday 15th (date of live auction) 10am-12noon, Thursday 18th 2-4pm, Friday 19th 2-4pm, and Monday 10am to 12 noon.
NB some catalogue prices in the lot listings are from older editions, as some of the work for this catalogue was done from home without always having latest catalogues to hand.
