STOCKHOLMIA 2019 Rarity Auction

- The 150th Royal Philatelic Society London Birthday-Sale

The Global Philatelic Network has been appointed as the Philatelic Partner for the International Celebration of the 150th Anniversary of The Royal Philatelic Society London - STOCKHOLMIA 2019, and as such is the official auctioneer for the STOCKHOLMIA 2019 Rarities Auction. With our international connections, philatelic knowledge and many years of auction experience we believe that we can be of good value for this event celebration.

The Society will benefit extraordinarily from the auction. We will donate 5% of the total hammer price to the overall benefit of the exhibition and, in consequence The Royal Philatelic Society London to make the marvellous stamp exhibition possible.

We invite Fellows, Members and Philatelists worldwide to consign material to this very special auction. In addition you will be a strong and important supporter of the Society and its anniversary.

We are looking for worldwide rare stamps and covers, postal history and specialised collections for this Rarity Auction. Consignments will be accepted for single lots starting from EUR 1,000 (£ 900) and collections starting from EUR 10,000 (£ 9,000).
