July Hants and Surrey Branch Auction – Prices Realised21st July 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.
Make no mistake though – there were bargains to be had! Franklyn Davey’s ‘Hunting’ (set) (£10), Rutters Comic Phrases (types) (£12/£13), Taddy’s ‘Admirals & Generals’ (scarce no. 18) (£60); Newbigin Actresses (type) (£32) – in fact the types section of the auction yielded fair prices in the main and is definitely worth a look in future if you missed this auction.

We cant let this day go by without some cartophilic commemoration. After all it is the date that our feathered friends traditionally choose their mates. So why not! The vintage image we choose as our featured card is a reminder of how times change, a
Well I hope 2019 was a success in finding those elusive lots to slim down your wants list, and that 2020 will be just as good. I am looking forward to the convention at Salisbury. While it is not so far for me to travel, I confess I do enjoy going
Greetings to all our Antipodean friends. We hope that you enjoy your day. Did you know you could visit Australia from here! In virtual form of course, because we have a thriving Australian cartophilic Society linked to us in many ways and it's ea
