This is the electronic/fax/internet version of our normal paper catalogue. Some changes have been effected so as to save file space and transfer/download time. Most illustrations and logos for example have been removed. Although it is not in the easiest form to read, hopefully it will still bring you the information you need. (The first few lots have been tidied up to nearer their original style just to give you a better impression.)

If you are new to our auctions, please see our general auction information page.

The figure at the end of each description is our estimate, in pounds sterling. Bids are accepted above or below this figure, although bids below about 75% or 80% estimate only have a tiny chance of success. Estimates do not include the 10% buyer's premium.

After the main listings you will find various information and instructions. This is followed by a sample bid form, and a copy of the the notes that appear on the reverse of our bid forms.

This is a public auction, in which written/telephone/fax/e-mail bids are also accepted. If you are bidding with us for the first time, please bid by two of these methods with the same bids (e.g. by post and by fax, or by telephone and by e-mail), or bid in good enough time for us to get back in touch with you with any queries.

NEW BIDDERS;
Please note that bidders who are not already known to us are required to bid in the first instance by two different methods. The options available are email, telephone, fax, or post.
New customers attending one of our sales in person for the first time, and intending to bid, are invited to make themselves known before the sale starts. This saves the auctioneer from having to ask for a name during the sale.

 We are distributing leaflets with this catalogue (but trying only to cover those in Central Scotland) with information about the three general stamp clubs that meet in Edinburgh. If you have never been to a stamp club or philatelic society meeting, why not give one a try. They are just ordinary collectors like yourself. (Say I sent you !)
 On the same tack, anybody living in the broad Edinburgh area who has an interest in collecting any of the Scandinavian group could do much worse than consider joining the East Coast Vikings. It is a very casually organised group, meeting about once a month. Speak to Robert Murray for information.
 If you are outwith our local area, but would like to know if there is a stamp club near you, please ask us – we can usually come up with the information.

OUR CHARGES; We have revised our auction charges as from the auction before this. The main point for bidders to be aware of is that a Buyer’s Premium of 10% is now charged in addition to the price at which the lot is knocked down. Also please note that (subject to certain conditions) the fee for the use of credit and debit cards has been removed. A leaflet should again accompany this catalogue which gives much more detail (some other charges are up or down – vendor’s commission is down). To keep your spending the same, reduce your bids by about 10%.                                        Our charges are still very competitive –it is not unusual to see charges such as 15% each from buyer and seller (+ vat), and some auctioneers charge considerably more, while not necessarily offering the quality of service you can expect from us.
