Malcolm Wade's BMA Postal History Auction on October 19th 2013 at Spink London

Photographs & notes by Nick Hackney & Susan McEwen

Well, that was quite an auction! I do not recall many auctions when all the lots were sold!

The total realisations were close to twice the pre-sale reserves !! There were strong bids in the room, and huge demand from postal and email bidders, especially from Singapore and Malaysia.

Malcolm expressed his appreciation to Susan McEwen who had put the auction lots, catalogues and scans together, without whose work this auction would not have been possible. She in turn thanked the people who had assisted her.

 

The detailed prices per lot will be published in The Newsletter .
