Welcome to my forty-first auction, which is a room auction at the Gillingham residential weekend. Both postal and e mail bids are welcome. Even if you do not have time for the whole weekend, you are more than welcome to attend to auction in person.

 

 

 

 

 

As always for room auctions, there are only 100 lots. However, they are the more select items (and heavier in some cases). Key items include a certified copy of SG 89 and expertised 1934 miniature sheets.

 

 

 

 

 

I have included more of the popular Carpatho Ukraine, Sudetenland, Bohemia and Moravia, Czech Forces and the 1945 Liberation issues. Modern issues include a number of booklets and PHQs.

 

 

 

 

 

Whatever your view on the forthcoming EU referendum, you will be interested in lot 91. Finally there are a number of colections that room bidders will be able to look through and see what a bargain each is!
