July Hants and Surrey Branch Auction – Prices Realised21st Jul 2016 by Sam Whiting
As many of you will know; the bidding has now concluded on the July H&S auction and Vernon has kindly provided us with a summary of the prices realised which you can view below in full.
The auction was well attended with 29 lots selling to bidders in the room. Some of the higher prices achieved in this auction were for scarcer earlier sets as you would expect with Salmon & Gluckstein’s ‘Traditions of the Army and Navy’ (£195), Wills ‘Beauties P/C inset’ (£415) and Kinney’s ‘Famous Running Horses (£460) achieving great results.

In this Auction, 'the collection' again features items at Lots 6 - 71, including 4 with high catalogue values. One set, scarce as set, is catalogued at £1900, but is not that popular. What reserve can I give, when the cards are in VG condition.
