These sales in the Auction Rooms, Lostwithiel are increasing in popularity and have turned up some interesting finds from our experienced cataloguers.
It is often easy to overlook small individual stamps, our Auctioneer Mr Ian Morris came across a small tin of stamps one of which caught his eye. After confirmation from our cataloguer it was confirmed to be 'A Victorian Five Pound Orange' which sold for £4,200. Another lot of interest came in from a longstanding customer, who requested us to sell on his behalf, A ‘four coin gold Sovereign proof set’ which achieved a hammer price of £1,920.
