IPSWICH AUCTION 2020 - The Catalogue for this Auction will be available nearer the time. Telephone and Postal bids welcome.
There are currently no auctions in the diary for the next few months. The downloads below are for past auctions.
You may recall, if you were at the recent AGM, that our Auction Secretary – Mr AG Blumfield – has decided to relinquish this position to concentrate on his own philatelic interests. We thank Tony for his previous hard work and diligence in this matter and wish him many happy hours sorting his own collections. He will still be an active member of our committee and Hon Librarian. As the Auction is a large part of our programme and to help keep this a feature of the society, our member, Mr Stephen Teuma, who also runs our website, has agreed to take on the challenge. However it will not be under the same terms as previous. The new terms will be similar to those used at Leiston but are as follows:
1. In year 1 – 2020 – there will be a maximum of 350 lots. On a first come basis.
2. Vendors will inform the auction secretary of their desired lots in writing, with a detailed and accurate description as well as a reserve price.
3. All lots will be held by the Vendor until the night of the Auction.
4. All lots will be packaged by the Vendor in a way that can be seen by potential bidders and accurately described.
5. Once the 350 lots have been indicated to the auction secretary no more lots will be accepted.
6. The Auction Secretary will allocate Lot Numbers and issue these to Vendors who in turn will need to label their own lots as per auction secretary’s list.
7. The Vendors shall transport their lots to the venue on the night of the Auction in good time for display and viewing, labelled as per item 6 above.
8. The lots will be distributed throughout the evening, as they are won, with any unsold items being removed by Vendors at the end of the auction, unless previous arrangements have been made.
9. Other terms will be as previous.
I hope you will support the new arrangements and the new Auction Secretary and look forward to another great evening of diverse interests.
