July 2017 – Hants and Surrey Branch Auction18th June 2017 by Sam Whiting
First, my thanks to the postal bidders who sent stamps. It is not essential, but I think it does show interest, and I guess all of us need a little of that to keep us going! In April, Lots 1-10 were offered at low reserves, and all attracted bids, so that Vendor has included more of the same, see Lots 1-22. We will see if these, too, are appreciated.
From ‘the collection’ this time come Lots 29 – 75. Despite many of these being unusual and in mostly very nice condition, the reserves seem to be really quite reasonable, especially when you consider the lack of extras such as VAT and Commission.
Lots 76 – 150 are the usual mix of part sets and full sets, gleaned from various local members. Lots 151 – 307, all single cards, represent the impressive array I usually get, mostly in very nice condition and not easy to find, and most with reserves no higher than 50%. Lots 308 – 332 are part of another batch of quality condition cards from a collection in the North, and more will follow over at least the next two auctions
Lastly, more cards from the local members at Lots 333 – 350
