We are a quality stamp auction house serving collectors and dealers since 1975. We strive to provide accurate descriptions, realistic estimates, and a no-nonsense return policy. Most lots in our sales are from consignors, but some material we own outright. We are always looking for new material and invite you to submit your quality items (collections or individual stamps and covers) for consignment or outright purchase.
We hold six auctions each year. In each auction we try to provide a wide range of stamps, covers and collections with appeal to the most meticulous collector as well as to the beginner and bargain hunter. Printed catalogs are mailed about one month prior to each sale; the on-line catalog is available several weeks earlier.
Customer satisfaction is our primary goal. If you are unhappy, we are unhappy. We hope you will come to enjoy the personal service we have offered to our customers over the years.
