No Estimate


Welcome to our fourth online timed auction, which sees us seriously starting to shift items from our stock as I move towards semi-retirement - there are single items, covers, small collections, some modest wholesale batches, and cheaper lots.

The sale is now live and you can bid on any lots. At 11:00am on Tuesday 3rd May the first lot will end, the next twenty seconds later, another twenty seconds after that, and so on until just after 9:00pm.

To avoid confusion with our live auction, the first lot number in this sale is 1000.

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.
