Welcome to the 424th Public Auction
Starting with the 424th Public Auction, you will start to see changes in format, content and presentation in our auction. The first is that the auction will be held over two days: Saturday, May 16th and Sunday, May 17th. Second, the order of the content will change. The collections, accumulations and stocks will be sold on Saturday while the singles, sets and single covers will be sold on Sunday, May 17th. Please review the index for the times and dates. Lastly, and the most dramatic, is that the Sunday, May 17th auction will be introducing live internet bidding. Rasdale Live Auctions allow you to view and bid in our Public Auction in real-time as the auction is taking place in our gallery. You, other Rasdale Live Auction customers from around the world, and those present on our gallery floor will compete at the same time to buy the items you have been looking for. Go to https://www.rasdalestamps.com/live-auction.asp to register today. You must be registered before Thursday, May 14th. In addition, there will be instant messaging between you and the auction administrator who is running the auction. Other features will be announced as they are developed. All Rasdale Live Auction and Rasdale Stamp Company news will be announced via email through Constant Contact. If you have not already, send your email address to email@example.com to get all the Rasdale news.
