LIVE SNAP AUCTION 15 took place on Saturday 25th May 2024. All unsold lots are now available for purchase at reserve prices.

Offers below reserve will be considered but please email offers, bids below reserve cannot be submitted via the website.


(1) Reserves and Estimates are in South African Rand.

(3) All lots are subject to 10% Buyers Premium, added at invoice stage. All bids submitted are deemed exclusive of Buyers Premium.

(4) Due to the virtual collapse of the South African Post Office, all lots for overseas buyers that do not warrant the expense of courier, are packed separately and sent all together in one larger parcel via courier to our agent in the UK, who then forwards each package via Royal Mail. A little extra patience is required in such cases.

(5) Weights for larger lots form part of the descriptions and include albums etc. Larger lots can only be delivered by air courier and shipping may be prohibitive. We make every effort to reduce the weight, but overseas buyers should bear this in mind when bidding. When in doubt, please enquire about approximate shipping costs.
