Postal Auction NS 9 –  23rd November 2018 – Unsolds

Postal Auction

There are some unsolds from the auction, many of which have had their reserves reduced so there are some bargains to be had!

These will be available on a first come first served basis. Please e-mail me with your requirements at auctions.bidders@ciss1950.org.uk and the sale will close at 5pm on Monday 10th December.

Buyer’s Premium

As from the start of 2018 the Society, like all organisations, can no longer add a 5% charge for the use of credit cards or PayPal.   Also, our bank charges have been increased as we are a small and occasional user of these payment facilities.

It is with the greatest reluctance that we need to add a Buyer’s Premium of 3% to all our auction invoices, with immediate effect, to recover these extra costs imposed on us.

General Information on Auctions

At present the Society holds two postal auctions each year in April and October. A room auction of approximately 50 lots is also held at each General Meeting. While these are a very important source of revenue to the Society, our members also benefit as these auctions are only open to members. The continuance of these auctions depends on the availability of material and all members are urged to take this into consideration when disposing of unwanted items.

In view of the heavy workload involved the role of Auction Secretary has been split into two.

Gerald Marriner is responsible for compiling and preparing the auction list. Please send any material you want included in the auction, along with a description, to him. You may contact him by email at auctions.vendors@ciss1950.org.uk.

Nick Stuart will deal with all other matters from this point onwards. Bids should be returned to him, either by email sent to auctions.bidders@ciss1950.org.uk or by post as indicated on the bid form.

Printed copies will be sent to all UK and C.I. members. All overseas members will receive their auction list by email.
