If you wish we will make an advance payment at the time of takeover of the items. This will put a large part of the value of your collection at your disposal immediately.

Auction Preparations

It is our aim to sell your stamps at the highest possible prices at the international stamp market. Our experts will divide up your collection into suitable auction lots and prepare them with great care for the auction. If necessary, stamps prone to forgery will be examined and certified by external experts. As soon as your lots are prepared for auction, you will receive for your perusal a note of receipt (lot description, starting prices, etc.).
