Welcome to our 500th Postal Auction

When I produced a small Postal Bid Auction list of 176 lots way back in October 1973, little did I think 45 years later I would be producing Auction number 500 with bidding by mail, fax, phone and internet!

In the interim, our business has grown. With 15 staff, we not only produce Postal Bid Auctions of Stamps, but hold regular Public Auctions of Stamps, Coins and Banknotes.

In 45 years we have sold in excess of $30 million worth of Stamps through our Postal Auctions and $25 million through our International Public Auctions which started in 1993. Of course we have sold much more over this period with our retail subsidiaries etc, and in all would have sold in excess of $100 million worth of items.

To all of our customers over the years, my staff and I say THANK YOU!

John Mowbray
