CSGB August 2018 Auction – Now Accepting Bids1st June 2018 by Sam Whiting

I thoroughly enjoyed the event, the venue was superb with great lighting and plenty of free parking. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who voted for my article, about how I started collecting, in the Cartophilic Cup competition. I was thrilled, flattered and honoured, not to mention totally surprised to have won. The Council did extremely well to keep this to themselves, I had absolutely no idea.

And so on to the highlights. There are 2 more Brown Bros. Types of British Aircraft, 2 sets of Kensitas Silk Flowers, a CWS Parrot, 5 Faulkner Our Colonial Troops and 3 Policemen of the World, 4 Sniders & Abrahams types, 2 Ed. Smith War Portraits, 3 Brooke Bond Place the Face Bingo cards, a set of Taddy Autographs in mainly VG condition and some more early and rare Ogden’s cards.
