Carol and I have been running Essex Stamp Auctions for 10 years now and have decided it is time to retire. Therefore this will be our last sale. However, we are pleased to say your interests will still be catered for. We are merging with our colleagues at Mayfair Philatelic Auctions headed by Rick Warren and Tim Francis. Many of you will recognize the names as being from the old Apex auctions team, who have formed the new auction of Mayfair Philatelic Auctions with at least 2 public auctions a year at Lingfield Park.

I am happy to say that I cannot think of better people than Tim and Rick to take over the reins and I am sure we are leaving the business in capable hands. Do contact them at the email address below if you have material you wish to put into the next auction. The next Mayfair sale is planned for March 2019 with many collections, boxes and much British Commonwealth.

This auction is somewhat smaller than usual however there are still plenty of mixed lots to investigate. Also a number of Great Britain collections, line engraved issues and high values including some Albion unsold lots from the previous auction re-offered at reduced estimates. There are also quite a few unreserved lots which we are clearing out.

At the Marriott Hotel, Old Shire Lane, Waltham Abbey, EN9 3LX. Just off Junction 26 of the M25 View Map


We are delighted to bring to auction a remarkable Great Britain stamps and postal history collection in our September 30th Stampex sale. This collection, started in the 1980’s, has taken 40 years of methodical acquisition to build . The collection is predominantly Queen Victoria to King George V and includes for example 200 penny blacks with dozens more on cover. Throughout the Embossed and surface printed issues are hundreds of individual covers of merit, with great destinations, combinations and plate numbers. Highlights include 1873 2½d rosy mauve error of Lettering both on and off cover, a shipping correspondence from Argentina with GB used in Buenos Aires, King George V with many mint Seahorses to £1, dozens of QV-GV high values including a PUC Pound on cover, many Aerial covers, Zeppelins and scarce First Day Covers.

This collection is undoubtedly going to be of interest to collectors and dealers alike, as many of these items have not been on the market for up to 40 years. Pre-order your catalogue now by giving us a call or email.
