MOBILE POST OFFICE SOCIETY - MAIL AUCTION CLOSING TUESDAY, APRIL 30, 2019

 

This is an auction primarily of items owned by MPOS plus a section of consigned covers from

a long-time MPOS member, for auction to members only. All items are pictured on the MPOS web site.

 

The Rules for bidding are simple:

 

Items will be sold at one increment over second bid or starting bid.

Bids must conform to increments, which are as follows:

 

   $1.00 - $4.75  25c

   $5.00 - $9.50  50c

   $10.00 - up    $1.00

 

Bids not meeting these increments will be reduced to conform.

 

Mail bids to Rick Kunz, PO Box 1058, Poulsbo WA 98370 or send via email to mobileposociety@comcast.net. Please include

your MPOS member number when bidding. All bids must be received by 8PM Pacific Time Tuesday, April 30, 2019.

 

Phone bidding or phone answers about current bids or lots can't be provided for this auction. Since all items are pictured online,

we are not making printed scans of the covers available.  Bid what you are willing to pay, no less than the starting bid; winners

will pay only one increment above second bid or starting bid if only one bid received. Ties will be awarded to the earliest bid received.

 

After the close, winning bidders will receive an invoice by email or letter, including nominal postage cost. Lots will not be shipped until

payment is received, except by discretion of the auctioneer. Paypal will be accepted. Due to fees incurred by the Society, invoices will

include a surcharge (5% or minimum $0.50) which will be waived for payment by check or cash.

 

As always, satisfaction is guaranteed by MPOS. Bid with confidence.
