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 Society is pleased to introduce our new Auctioneer, replacing Mike Dovey who has given the Society many years of sterling service, for which we are all extremely grateful. Ken Mitchell is a long-standing member of the Society who has contributed to the Journal in the past. He cares passionately about the Society, and states that "the Society definitely needs an auctioneer to serve the needs of the members".
Please help Ken build up a list of quality lots for auction. If you have quality material to sell please contact him by phone, +44 (0)1642 270210 or .

Don't forget to look out for our stand at the 2019 shows we attend - there will still be some items available from Mike Dovey's loft!
