The Mike Bogue collection was a large part of this sale, and continues to sell well. The total auction turnover was £1826 and 76% of the 225 lots were sold, including all of the ‘no reserve lots’, some of which selling for as little as 1 GBP – thus some of our members got real bargains. We note however that there was little demand  for the high end pieces in this auction – which typically did have a reserve price around 70% of the estimate. Remarkably, the 4 highest selling items were all Chinese, including £100 for a Petchili bond. New Zealand and Australian certificates also attracted a lot of bidding.  The beautiful Hispano Suiza share, a real scripophily classic, fetched £26 while a previously unseen early printer proof share in the North British Railway Co. sold for merely £10. The next IBSS sale will include the final part of the Mike Bogue collection.
