IMPORTANT. These are not intended to be exhaustive Terms and Conditions nor should they be taken as such. All goods are sold under the Philatelic Auctioneers Standard Terms and Conditions and matters not covered above are covered by those Terms. A copy of the Philatelic Auctioneers Standard Terms and Conditions is available on request on receipt of stamped and addressed A4 envelope.
We will accept most philatelic (and some philatelically related) material for sale, for our public sales, subject to a minimum total of £500 open market value per consignment with a preferred minimum of £100 per lot. Best sellers are Imperials and Ideals, Crowns, Windsors and good single-country collections or better single items/rarities.
You may lot, describe and estimate material yourself if you wish, subject to the limits in paragraph 1 above. If not already lotted and estimated, we will lot material in the way we feel best suits at our opinion of its fair market value, with a reserve of 80% of the estimate. Numbers of lower value lots (under £50) we regret not accepted. We reserve the right to lot material together, or offer in a postal only sale, where necessary.
Commission will be charged on total prices realised per sale as to:
Public (room) sales - flat 10.0% on all sales
Postbid sales - flat 20.0% on all sales
subject to a minimum commission of £7.50 per lot and £25 per sale.
Material described for sale and later withdrawn without being offered for sale is subject to an administration fee of a) £5 per lot if not yet numbered for sale or b) otherwise £20 per lot. Lots which are still unsold after two auctions, are discounted by 20% in each auction they then appear, until sold.
No extra charge for colour photography (unless vendor requires illustration of a lot we would not ordinarily illustrate). No "unsold" fee provided not reserved at more than 80% of our estimate. "All-risks" insurance whilst goods in our custody is 38p/£100 per sale, based on reserved valuations. Return carriage/insurance costs payable by vendor.
