Welcome to this little post about my work at James and Sons. There are two main parts to this post – one features an event from the last of the September auctions, while the second deals with the upcoming October auctions.
ON THE POWER OF INTERNET BIDDING
On Thursday I put out a press release with the title “The Power of Internet Bidding”, which focussed on lot 1301 from our previous auction. On Friday someone from Archant (the media company who publish The Eastern Daily Press among others) asked a number of follow-up questions, so I expect a short piece to appear in the EDP before too long. Here is a screenshot of my original press release, along with the image used therein and a link to the document:
THE OCTOBER AUCTIONS
All three Octobe auctions will take place at our shop, 5 Norwich Street, Fakenham, NR21 9AF – on the 23rd, 24th and 25th.
This sale, on Monday October 25th, kicks of with 250 military postcards before moving on to ephemera, cigarette and trade cards and such like. The imaging for this sale is nearly complete.
This one has very vfew images thus far. This will be the stamps and postal history day.
The imaging for this sale is reasonably well advanced…

That’s quite a premium, guide price to hammer price! Was it multiple online bidders? Maybe there was more to that particular lot than meets the eye??
Yes – there were several online bidders. The guy in the photo was a field marshal, and his list of awards and honorifics amounts to about half an alphabet after his name. I guess lots of people were interested in him.
