Specialist collectables valuation day
Location: Uckfield Civic Centre, Bell Farm Lane, Uckfield, East Sussex, TN22 1AE
Date: Thursday, January 24, 2019, 11.00 am - 3.00 pm
Lockdales auctioneers will be holding a specialist valuation day at Uckfield Civic Centre on Thursday, January 24, from 11am to 3pm.
Collectables of interest can include: coins, stamps, banknotes, clocks, watches, silver, gold, documents, books and maps (pre-1900), medals and 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 Lockdales 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.
A spokesperson for Lockdales said: “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 £19,000.”
