For those attending in person, viewing begins at 10.30 a.m. The Auctions start at 12.45 p.m. being followed by, at 2.45 pm, the Display advertised in Meetings & Events.

Please note that postal bids by existing members, auction payments, lots for sale in the auction and correspondence relating to the auction or literature sales must be sent to Michael R Thompson. (NPS), 77 St. Marks Avenue, Northfleet, Gravesend  DA11 9LN. 
T
hey should not be sent to the meeting venue.

 Please see below if you are not yet a member.

  • They offer the chance for members of the NPS to buy and sell stamps, postal history and philatelic literature.

    We regret however that we cannot accept material for sale in the Auction from National PS members living outside the European Union, since the Society cannot accept liability for VAT charged on entry into the UK.

    Bids can be accepted from Members wherever they may live, subject to any trading restrictions with a particular country and the member being responsible for any customs duties that may arise on the arrival of the purchases in your country.

  • Each sale comprises 400 or more lots that vary in price from £2 (reserve) upwards of £100. There is generally something for everyone including specialized items and the more common material from all around the world. Bargains are not unheard of!


  • CATALOGUES are published for each sale. Click here to see that for the next auction. Catalogues are sent to all members by email each month and members have the option of receiving catalogues by post at a cost of �5 a year (UK). 

  • VIEWING takes places from 11 a.m. at Phoenix Centre on the morning of the Auction. Lots are not available for postal viewing.

  • The monthly auction is room and postal bidding - so have a look at

  • and then why not take part - but, sorry, only if you're a member of National PS. Our Constitution does not permit non-members to enter the fun. That can easily be remedied simply by going to How to Join the National PS  

KEEN TO TAKE PART IN THE NEXT AUCTION BUT NOT YET A MEMBER?

Acceptance of a bid will be subject to the acceptance of your membership application. 

NOT SURE? � Then select option C on the bid form for one-off auction/book sale membership that lasts for two months from the date of your bid form. This enables you to bid in this and in the next monthly auction and place an order in one Member�s Literature Sale during this two-month period.  If your bid in either Auction  is successful or if you secure a book in the Literature Sale you will be charged �4 for this one-off membership (there is no charge if your bids or order are unsuccessful).

If you wish to participate in any more auctions or literature sales after the expiry of the 2 months, then we must ask you to join the Society as a full member, although if you have paid �4 you may deduct this from your initial subscription payment  

  • Want to know what happened to those lots you didn't buy? Simply e-mail us for details of what the most recent Auction's lots were sold for, or if you wish to have the results e-mailed to you automatically each month (until you say otherwise).

  • The Philatelic Auctioneers' Standard Terms and Conditions of Sale (1973 revision) apply.

  • All cheques must be payable to "National Philatelic Society" i.e. do not abbreviate to "NPS".

  • The decision of the Hon Auctioneer shall be final in respect of any dispute that may arise.
