Friday 13th March 11am – 3pm at The Kings Arms Hotel, Market Square. The auctioneers Lockdales will be holding a specialist valuation day for the following types of collectables: Coins, stamps, banknotes, jewellery, watches, silver, gold, documents, books & maps (pre-1900),
medals & militaria also including swords , bayonets and de-activated / antique weapons , cigarette-cards, postcards, pre-1960 sports programmes and tickets and scientific instruments.
Members of the public will have the option, if they wish, to consign their goods to be sold in a future public auction, or they may request a cash purchase offer from Lockdales themselves. Valuations at this event will be provided entirely free of charge without any obligation to sell. High quality illustrated auction catalogues from previous sales will be given away on a complimentary basis in order for the public to get a better idea of the services we provide.
Lockdales has been holding six auctions per year since 1997, and has grown to become one of the UK’s leading specialist auction houses, with an annual turnover in excess of two million pounds.
We have conducted hundreds of valuation days all over the UK, and we often turn up some very rare and interesting items from the public at these events. One item in particular, a unique gold coin from the Dark Ages, was brought along to a previous event. The owner was not aware of the value of it and we later sold it on its owners’ behalf at auction for over 19 thousand pounds.
