Auctions

The TPO & Seapost Society holds regular Postal Auctions for Members. Auction bid forms and printed lists accompany the TPO Journal. A variety of different material is available each quarter covering Sea posts, Paquebots, TPOs, Railways (RPOs), Books and Literature.

If you are thinking about expanding your present collecting interest to include TPO, Paquebot or Seapost items then have a look at the First Come - First Served auction items at the end of the list. These would provide a good source of foundation material to add to an existing country or themed collection. The connection with ships, railways or mail handling at sea may provide a new sideline to augment and revitalize your existing interests.

The Winter 2017 auction was the last one compiled by our long-time Auction Manager, Mike Dovey. He has done a sterling job over a number of years. However, he is now standing down. We would like a member to volunteer to take over. Until then, that was the last sale of material from Mike's loft!

If you might be interested in this position, or would like to discuss it, please get in touch with any member of the committee. You could also come and talk to any of us at any of the many events we attend around the country on behalf of the Society.

Example lot from a recent auction:
two line AMBULANTE POSTAL / JUN 1 5 1948 TPO cancel
HONDURAS Cvr with 9 stamps cancelled in purple by the two line AMBULANTE POSTAL / JUN 1 5 1948 on written up sheet with map.
From the Winter 2017 auction.
