Welcome to our third online timed auction, which we've called our "Collectors' Auctions" 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 11:00am on Tuesday 23rd November the first lot will end, the next thirty seconds later, another thirty seconds after that, and so on until about 10:00pm.
To avoid confusion with our live auction, the first lot number in this sale is 1000.
