POSTAL AUCTION 138 NOW ON-LINE & CLOSING 9PM, FRIDAY 16TH OCTOBER 2020
Before we make reference to the above sale we would like to take this opportunity to wish all our clients, their families and friends the very best of health during these unprecedented and turbulent times.
This sale was originally scheduled for spring of this year but obviously the pandemic intervened. The almost complete lack of a timely international postal service meant that many of overseas customers would have effectively been disenfranchised from participating and obviously that was a scenario we were keen to avoid. Even now we would recommend that overseas customers bid via the website, e-mail or by telephoning us rather than trust the postal service will function completely efficiently.
One of the few beneficial effects of the crisis has been the opportunity to compile a notable sale for your perusal. In terms of the number of lots (4194) and the quality and range of material on offer this has been a genuinely exciting auction to assemble. Condition throughout is of the higest quality with a plethora of unmounted mint & very fine used sets, singles, multiples & varieties.
There are many excellent individual country sections, including territories that we have featured less regularly in recent sales. In particular we would highlight British Africa with very strong BEA, Gambia, Gold Coast, KUT, Sierra Leone & Zululand and Australasia with a very fine used first issue Australia £2 Kangaroo, excellent Papua & New Guinea & extensive all periods New Zealand (342 lots). Further depth lies in Ascension including a major rarity, Barbados, Bermuda, another outstanding section of Falkland Islands & Dependencies (571 lots), all periods Hong Kong (220 lots), Malta, Morocco Agencies, Newfoundland & St Vincent. Many other Commonwealth countries feature to a lesser or greater extent and we are confident the sale will contain material which appeals to a wide spectrum of our client base.
Virtually all lots can be viewed with the benefit of enlarged high resolution scans simply by clicking on "View Sale" at the top of this home page. We are still adding further scans to the site but if a lot you are interested in does not have a scan attached, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will ensure one is provided.
EBAY MATERIAL ON OFFER NEXT MONTH
We will be offering a new tranche of Ebay material which will conclude on Sunday, 11th October. The first lots will be listed on Thursday, 1st October. We will provide greater detail nearer the time.

Principality Auctions is one of the leading philatelic postal auctions in the United Kingdom. Based in Alnwick, Northumberland we hold regular auctions of 2,500+ 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.
