Welcome to our 10th Auction for 2021. This is being held over two days, Thursday 21st October & Friday 22nd October.
Auction 89 will be live on the net via our own auction systems. Just login as usual and then open the Live Bidding window. This will then give you the ability to bid on each lot just as if you were in the room. At this stage we are still in lockdown and viewing and room bidders are not allowed. We will use our normal emails to keep you updated with any changes.
Session 1 (lots 1-296) starts at 10.00am on Thursday and is just Kangaroo lots. This section features a wide range of shades, monograms, imprints and varieties, with a good mix of single items and group lots. There is quite a range of bi-colours including a SMW £2 MUH.
Session 2 (lots 297-922) starts no earlier than 1:00pm on Thursday, and contains the rest of the Australian Commonwealth period followed by BCOF and Australian Territories.

Qld has several nice lots of RO mss cancellations, Victoria has a strong selection incl a fantastic 1857 Victoria Express cover, a good range of stamps etc. Postmark collectors are well served with a fine range of both numerals & datestamps.

As stated earlier at this stage we do not know how limited viewing and room bidding will be due to the changing COVID-19 restrictions. Please make an appointment if you are coming in for any reason, as that will help us manage the numbers in the building at any one time. We have limited our staff on both auction days, so please avoid calling then, as we may not be able to answer you promptly.
While we have also organised ourselves to cater for more phone bidders, we do encourage everyone to use our website, www.phoenixauctions.com.au as much as possible as that will provide you with the best information about each lot and your bids.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries.
Best of luck with your bids.
