Welcome to the Ninety-second NEGEV HOLYLAND AUCTION.
This auction features a very nice selection of Israel sheets and booklets. There are also some nice art work and newspapers.
The costs for printing and mailing of catalogues are quite high. The recent rate increases from the US Postal Service only make matters worse. Many auction firms have stopped sending catalogues. They require all clients to use their web sites. I am very hesitant to do this. I have some clients who do not have web access and some who do not even have computers. To be honest, I personally like to get a hard copy. To me they are easier to use. Also web sites could be taken down. However, I must now further cut down on my mailings.
If you have an e-mail address, please include it on your bid sheet. I will then send you notices when the auction is on the web site. If you still desire to get a hard copy of the catalogue, please let me know and I will keep sending it to you. THANK YOU.
AGAIN: When sending your bids by e-mail or the web site please include your full name, address, and a phone-number. I have some clients with similar names. If you do not have a full name, address, and a phone-number on your e-mail bids, I will ask for them and not enter the bids until I get that information. Thanks.
AGAIN: I am keeping the LOW PRICED LOTS. The photos are on the web site. For my clients who do not use the web or computers, I will send a limited number of scans for free. These lots are offered AS IS – NO RETURNS. There is NO COMMISSION but the 4% surcharge and postage will be applied. The lot numbers start with 601.
As we all well know, there is much fraudulent and faked material in the INTERIM period. Certificates are generally not issued for this material. This is, more or less, a BUYER BEWARE area with the material being sold AS IS. Nevertheless, in accordance with the terms of sale #06, if, within 30 days - unless a extension is asked for in writing - a competent authority, whom I recognize, states in writing that the material is faked or fraudulent, a full refund will be given
This auction has many sheets of Israel stamps. Even though it may not be explicitly stated on a lot, there may be perforation separations and/or folds. These are NOT grounds for the return of a lot. If these are a concern for you, please ask me to double check the lot.
