Hide Auction Description

Welcome to our weekly online stamp auction! We have about 50 lots ending every Sunday open for bidding from worldwide collections to US First Day Covers and some of everything in between. Check out our other auctions currently open for bidding on our website and please do let us know if you have any questions. Lots are available for viewing in our offices and please let us know if you need more photos, more information about a lot, or would like to submit bids directly to us by phone, email or mail. All lots will sell ending on Sunday afternoon on a staggered basis (the time will count down to 0) and a late bid will extend the time for that lot. If you bid on an item in the last few minutes it will extend bidding on that lot by 2 minutes to try and minimize last-second sniping and also not extend bidding too long. We charge a 15% buyers fee and will begin notifying winning bidders and shipping out the day after the close of the auction. Have fun and please let us know if you have any questions or would like to consign to either our weekly auctions or our Featured live in-person auctions.
