Books & Collectors Sale
Our Collectors’ sales, held bi-annually, showcase postcards, coins, medals, stamps, toys, books and manuscripts, many of which are of local interest. We also auction private collections, for example our 2013 Pendarves library sale, in which a huge number of books concerning mining and local geography were auctioned as part of an impressive two day sale. In a recent collectors sale we sold the medal entitlement group of Pt Thomas Byrne VC of the 21st Lancers. It was a fabulous sale and the medals had an exciting background story which we carefully promoted to the national media. Even without the original VC the medals sold for £40,000, a wonderful result gained by meticulous research and promotion.
