The vast majority of the material on our bidboard is on consignment from other collectors. Our commission is 25% of the selling price. We have no extra charges for insurance, lotting, photography, etc.

If you look at our past bidboards, you will get a good idea of what type of material we sell.
Don't hesitate to contact us if you are considering consigning to our weekly auction. We are more than happy to answer any of your questions.

Please email us before you send any material. We may be able to give you shipping advice. You know your material better than anyone. Feel free to lot and describe it before you send it to us. Some people even send their predescribed listings as emails that we can cut and paste directly into the auction. We use the latest Scott Standard catalogue to describe most material but do use specialized catalogues such as Unitrade, Stanley Gibbons, Michel and others when warranted.

With our large and diverse client base, material tends to sell for what it's worth. Therefore reserve prices are neither needed nor accepted. Once your material is on our premises we begin selling it approximately two weeks after receipt. The number of lots you will be allowed per week depends on how many different consignments we have as well as other factors, such as how well it fits into the feel of the sale. For example, if you give us ten of the same set, those will not go up over a ten week period. We will space them out over a longer period of time so they get a better price.

Our terms of payment are flexible. We pay out in Canadian (or the equivalent in US $). Feel free to discuss your payment preferences with us at any time.
