How to Bid

spacer Auction Instructions

Estimated values, in Canadian Dollars, are provided for your bidding convenience. Estimates are roughly at 1/3rd of catalogue value for sound material. Lots may sell for more or less than these suggested values, but bidding closer to estimate improves your chances of bidding success.

The minimum acceptable bid for any lot is $5. Bids of less than $5 will not be registered.

Since lots are sold at one raise over the next highest bid, we will only use your full bid as competition dictates. Increases are at 10% increments, so a tie breaker bid also helps. For example if we have a $50 estimate on Lot #4 and you really want the stamp for your collection, you might bid $50. Perhaps you are lucky and no one else bids more than $25. In this case we would buy the lot for you at $27.50, one raise over the next highest bid. However, if two bidders really wanted the lot, and both bid $50, the bidder who gave us an extra 10% tie breaking bid would win the lot. Otherwise, the first bidder to that amount gets the lot in the event of a tie.

The auction closes at noon PST Saturdays. We would appreciate your e-mail bids Friday evening or earlier, but you can phone bids in until sale time. You can also phone, fax, or e-mail us for additional lot information, or bidding advice. We will contact you fairly quickly after the sale if you were successful. Regional customers will be contacted by telephone, and those further afield by either telephone or e-mail.

Where credit has been established, we will ship your lots out to you with an invoice, or you may arrange with us to have your purchases billed to a Visa or MasterCard account and shipped to you automatically. We have many customers all over North America and the world who bid in our auction with success.

Happy Hunting. We look forward to helping you build your collections.
