A special room-auction will take place at the Society's Fest weekend. The sale includes scarce and unusual material together with an interesting selection of literature. Viewing will commence half an hour before the start, and lots are shown on the Society website (which you are now reading).
Members are most welcome at the room auction, even if they are unable to attend for the whole weekend. Postal bids must be received at least a week before the room auction; see the dates above. Unsold lots will be listed on the APS website shortly after the Auction, and will be available from me at the reserve price until 22nd September. Finally, please remember that Reserve means Reserve. The reserves are there to give the vendor some downside protection; they are not estimates, which would generally be somewhat higher. Good luck with your bidding.
AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO OUR OVERSEAS BIDDERS

Webmaster's remarks: The size of the image window is controlled by the settings on your computer, not by this web site. The pictures have been provided by a 'quick and easy' scanning process which does not give completely accurate colour reproduction, and also usually produces a heavy black shadow at the top of each image. Do not rely on the pictures to judge shades. In particular, the buff colour of monarchy-period postcards tends to come out much whiter than the actual colour; and sometimes the stamps appear to glow luridly! The images have not been retouched (ie, all the markings added over the years by dealers and vendors have been left). The items are scanned in their protectors, which is why some have white streaks! If you need to know precise dimensions of any item ask the Auctioneer. To ensure you are looking at the latest version of this page, use your browser's "Refresh" feature. The buttons above may open a new browser tab or a new window: the choice is controlled by which version of what browser you have plus how you have set it, not by this web site. The programs we use cannot easily cope with varying page sizes, so you'll find everything is A4 portrait or landscape, and some of the portrait pages have the bottom half blank. The alternative was to have lots split over page breaks, or in non-numerical order; we think our choice is the lesser evil.
