The Rasdale Stamp Company will host a live stamp auction in their gallery on August 20th and 21st, the local Chicago area stamp collection company has announced. In addition to participating in person at their gallery in the Chicago area, interested parties will be able to participate remotely in the auction—in real time—in a variety of ways.
In their announcement of the auction, Rasdale has included their “Rasdale Live Auctions” option which will allow customers from all over the world to participate and bid via the internet in the live auction. Remote parties will bid simultaneously with liveP bidders. In addition to offering the remote bidding option, Rasdale’s announcement assures customers interested in participating remotely that they will also be able to communicate in real time with the auction administrator.
Registering for the auction, both to participate in person or online, can be accomplished through their website at the link provided below. After registration is complete, registrants are invited by Rasdale to contact their customer relations coordinator, whose contact information is also available on their website. From there, remote bidders will survey and decide which platforms they will utilize to participate in the auction. Rasdale Stamp Company communicates with remote bidders using an upgraded platform on their website as well as through social media platforms like Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube and Google+. The stamp company will also utilize these platforms to provide live updates to participating and interested parties during the auction from August 20-21.
The auction itself will be divided into two sessions and will include 1,623 lots from 123 different owners. Rasdale has confirmed several changes to the format of the auction relative to previous auctions. Among the changes are an extended window of time scheduled in to allow for interested parties to call in and speak with a Rasdale employee regarding a specific stamp lot of interest. Another change was announced that will affect the order in which lots are sold to accommodate the discrepancies between bidding in person and bidding on the internet.
The contents of the auction
will include stamp singles and sets from the United States, Canada,
British Commonwealth, Europe and Asia. Following the auction on August
20-21, their next auction is set for November 19th and 20th. A detailed
