We welcome everyone to our 330th Auction sale slated for May 9th, 2018.
This is our largest auction in recent memory. There are over 8,100 lots on the block waiting to find new homes.
Over the last number of years the stamp auction business has been changing and evolving. More and more companies are moving their sales on-line instead
of sending out printed catalogues.
At Vance Auctions, we offer the best of both worlds. You have the options of reading our catalogue on-line (at our web site or at Stamp Auction Network), and
you can read the printed version. We know that many of our bidders still prefer the feel and portability of the printed catalogue, and look forward to its arrival every seven or eight weeks. One bidder recently wrote how much he enjoys reading our catalogues from cover to cover.
We also know that many of you make the most of both versions. You enjoy scanning the printed pages because you often spot items of interest among the photos. Then you use the powerful search features at our web site to make sure that you didn’t miss any lots in your area of interest.
Regardless of how you browse the catalogue, you can bid by mail, phone, fax, e-mail, through our web site
or at SAN. You will always receive the same good old-fashioned service that we have been providing since 1972.
For over 40 years now, Vance Auctions has been attending stamp shows and exhibitions. Every show
is special to us as it gives us the opportunity to meet many of our bidders, stay in touch with other dealers,
see the exhibits, and keep up to date with the latest happenings in the stamp market.
The Vance Auctions Team will be at the following shows:
||National Stamp & Coin Show
||Royal 2018 Royale
||Parkway Convention Centre
||APS Stamp Show
This auction with over 8,100 lots contains a mammoth amount of material. Many of the singles and sets are not regularly offered,
so you are bound to find lots of items to add to your collection. Canada and Provinces, Germany, France and Colonies, Great Britain, and Austria are well represented. The United States section might be the largest that we have ever offered. We also take pride in the vast number of interesting and unusual postal history items from all over the world.
Remember that there is never a Buyer’s Fee at Vance Auctions. You pay only the hammer price plus the cost of shipping your lots. As usual, we will be answering the phone right up until Midnight EDT on Wednesday, May 9th to assist you with your bids.
