Current Auction

Public Auction #429

We are proud to offer 1,623 lots from 123 different owners in our August 20-21, 2016 auction. There have been a few changes in the first session. The first change is very subtle as we are offering two extra days for you to call to reach a describer via phone for more information about a lot that you are interested in. Please review “Question Concerning Lots” for the expanded schedule. The second change is the order in which we are now selling the lots. The most dynamic is that we have moved the individual covers to the end of the auction. We did this acknowledging that live internet bidding takes more time and to accommodate our customers bidding on the floor for large lots, whether for stamps or covers who are traveling, to finish earlier. The highlight of the single cover section is a continuation of the China holding from the Peninsular estate and an impressive German group.

The auction is well balanced in singles and sets from the United States, Canada, British Commonwealth, Europe and Asia. Every three months we are proud to present over ten tons of fresh material and remain committed to servicing the stamp market for both sellers and buyers.
