[See also our Live Online Auction on Monday 23 January.]
Welcome to our fifth 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 24th January the first lot will end, the next twenty seconds later, another twenty seconds after that, and so on until just after 10:00pm.

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