Dear Members,
Welcome to Auction 118 which, with over 700 lots, is our biggest yet, and surely has something for everyone. The sale includes material from eighteen Members, but is dominated by the Les Taylor Estate, accounting for half the lots. The variety is much wider this Auction than in the recent past, and I would particularly like to draw your attention to:

After the Auction closes, unsold items will be posted on the website and will be available from me at the reserve price for two weeks. Good luck with your bidding, and may I wish you a Merry Christmas and good health in 2015. Keith

INFORMATION FOR BIDDERS AND VENDORS

If you would like more information about any of the lots, please do not hesitate to contact me. Photocopies of lots not accessible on the internet can be supplied at 10p per sheet (plus postage).

Prices in the final column of the listing are reserves in GB pounds sterling. Lots will be purchased for you at the lowest-possible price, i.e. at the reserve or at one bidding-step above an underbidder. If equal bids are received for a lot, the first I receive will take precedence. There is no buyer’s premium.

You may bid by post or by e-mail (but not by telephone please). E-mail bids will be acknowledged; if you do not hear from me within three days, please contact me. The bidding-steps are at the top of the bidding-form. Bids not conforming to bidding-steps will be rounded up to the next step. Payment by UK buyers will normally be by sterling cheque. UK and overseas buyers may pay by VISA card or Pay-Pal, for both of which there is a service charge. Details of these charges can be seen in our journal AUSTRIA and will be sent with your invoice.

If you have material to sell, please note that we charge only 10% commission plus a lotting fee of 10 pence per lot (plus the return postage of unsold lots where applicable).

Webmaster's remarks: Images are not normally provided for mint items and cheap, bulk lots. Clicking a 'W' in the right-hand column will open the image in a separate window; however the W-links are automatically added en mass so you may find some are broken. The size of this image window is controlled by the settings on your computer, not by this web site. The pictures have been provided by a 'quick and easy' scanning process which does not give completely accurate colour reproduction, and also usually produces a heavy black shadow at the top of each image. Do not rely on the pictures to judge shades. In particular, the buff colour of monarchy-period postcards tends to come out much whiter than the actual colour, while all-white items are often deliberately darkened to distinguish them from the background; and sometimes the stamps appear to glow luridly! The images have not been retouched (ie, all the markings added over the years by dealers and vendors have been left); many have been rotated to be parallel to the top of your screen. Also, all the images have been scaled to be the same width; if you need to know precise dimensions ask the Auctioneer.
