AUSTRIAN PHILATELIC SOCIETY - GRAND AUCTION 134

Closes for bidding midnight Saturday 1st December 2018 (U.K. time)

Dear Members,

The Grand Auction held at the Derby Fest Weekend went well with 69% of lots sold and sales at 73% of total reserve. In this auction we offer a wide variety of interesting material. PLEASE REMEMBER! The starting-prices are NOT estimates; they are reserve-prices to give the vendors a safety-net, and are usually set very low. Most but not all lots are illustrated.

Please note the following errors in the printed lists (and in the website list too):
Lot 508 is a repetition of the listing for lot 490
Lots 447, 511 and 516 are withdrawn; they may appear in a later auction
"Lot 509" is not an item for sale but a note!

A tsunami of unexpected non-philatelic problems has delayed the production of this list and the illustrations. Apart from single loose stamps, each item has its own page - and inescapably appears in the middle thereof, so that unless you view at full-page-on-screen you may think it's not there. However, perfection is the enemy of just-about-adequate, and a beautiful list appearing after the closing date would be of little use. Each lot is numbered near the top left corner in lurid purple. Some of the image-blocks will be added later this week. The production team fervently hope that the year 2019 will be better for us all.
