Stamps expected to sell for thousands
A PORTISHEAD stamp auction is attracting interest from around the world.
Tony Cavill who runs Portishead Stamp Auctions with his wife Jane and sister-in-law Marion said: “We have some interesting collections for our February auction and have had enquiries from Canada, Australia, UK and South Africa.”
The next auction at Gordano School in St Marys Road on February 25 will feature some rare items with some collections worth up to �120,000.
Tony added: “Estates like our French collection are valued in excess of �100,000 but we break them up in to smaller lots to make them more accessible to collectors.”
A single 1869 five franc stamp is expected to sell for more than �4,000 in the auction but prices vary considerably and there will be first day covers which will be on sale for around �5.
