Principality Auctions is one of the leading philatelic postal auctions in the United Kingdom. Based in Alnwick, Northumberland we hold regular auctions of 3,500+ all world lots with a strong focus on fine material from the British Empire.
Our website is designed as a resource to bring our auctions to a worldwide audience. We place the highest possible premium on the honesty and integrity of our descriptions. A desire to offer a wide range of interesting material in very fine condition is our core aim.
It is important to stress that this is not an "on-line" or "interactive" auction. Our auction operates on the basis of a designated closing date by which time all bids must be received. Lots are then allocated on the basis of the highest bid received at the close of sale. To convert our sales into an on-line stamp auction would have effectively disenfranchised many of our long-standing customers who receive our traditional printed catalogues and who do not necessarily possess internet access.
The site has been designed on simple lines in order to allow easy and comprehensive viewing of our sales. The best way to navigate the site is through means of the "Keyword Search" at the top right of this page. For instance, if you are a collector of Fiji, simply entering that country name in the Search box will take you automatically to all items of potential interest to you. It is equally easy to bid by means of our on-line Bid Form which can be accessed via any lot in the sale.
We very much hope you find the site of interest and value. We are extremely eager to receive feedback and would welcome any suggestions as to how we may offer the most effective service to our customers.
