The SG Online Timed Auction is now live

Stanley Gibbons' Auctions Department is currently hosting an online timed auction until 29th November. 

Since our first auction in 1901, our experts have helped collectors find elusive and historically significant items that advance their collections.

During the lockdown in April this year, the team held their first timed auction which received bids from collectors around the world and overwhelmingly positive feedback."Confined to our homes once again (at least in the UK), you will enjoy browsing the auction for some items to fill those conspicuous gaps in your albums," Head of Auctions Tom Hazell said.

During this ongoing auction, an array of lovely and eclectic items are available for bidding including "a real collector’s trove of singles, sets and collections from all over the world."
