Postal Auction NS 9 –  23rd November 2018

Postal Auction

We have a large 624 Lot auction to end the year with a wide range of material from 18 members.

There is strength and depth in Postal History and the Occupation including Internee Mail, Civilian Feldpost, POW Mail and Red Cross. There is an interesting 1922 Vellum document with Jersey Revenues; Hotel emphemera, CI Regionals and, if you are into Planes and Boats and Trains, you will find something of interest.

As usual there is a good range of Postcards including some rarer ones.

There are many Lots starting at £3 with a wide range of starting prices all the way up to £1,000. There is something for everyone so, Good Bidding!

All bids must be received by at 5pm on Friday 23rd November

The list of the lots and their descriptions can be viewed and downloaded HERE.

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.
