Postal Auction NS 14 Postcards – 6th February 2021

I am please to announce that the Society will be running it first Postcard Only auction. This is an extra auction for 2021 and we will be running our usual Spring and Autumn general auctions as well.

We have over 500 Lots for sale covering a wide range of material including LLcards for Guernsey, Jersey, Sark and Channel Islands.

There is a large selection of Aviation, Hotels, Transport, Railways and Shipping cards, all with a Channel Islands theme.

Many of the Lots are to do with Jersey and include Hotels, People, Shops, Churches, Events and Views with the majority of the cards being from the 1900’s -1920’s.

There is a wide range of publishers such as LL, B.B., Beresford, J Welch, Pelham, Boots, Nelson, Neurdin and GF of France as well as many Jersey publishers such as Albert Smith and A G Le Moer. Some of the Lots have good runs of cards, an excellent basis on which to build a complete collection.

Please send me your bids so that I receive them by 5pm GMT on Saturday 6th February.

Many thanks. Nick

General Information on Auctions

At present the Society holds two postal auctions each year in the Spring and the Autumn. A room auction of approximately 50 lots is also held at each General Meeting. While these are a very important source of revenue to the Society, our members also benefit as these auctions are only open to members. The continuance of these auctions depends on the availability of material and all members are urged to take this into consideration when disposing of unwanted items.

In view of the heavy workload involved the role of Auction Secretary has been split into two.

Gerald Marriner is responsible for compiling and preparing the auction list. Please send any material you want included in the auction, along with a description, to him. You may contact him by email at auctions.vendors@ciss.uk.

Nick Stuart will deal with all other matters from this point onwards. Bids should be returned to him, either by email sent to auctioneer@ciss.uk or by post as indicated on the bid form.

Printed copies of the auction list will be sent to all UK and C.I. members. All overseas members will receive their auction list by email.
