It was the culmination of a remarkable stamp exhibition that had attracted visitors from all over the world to England. On 16 May 2015, the last day of EUROPHILEX 2015 in London, the oldest auction houses of Germany and Switzerland, Heinrich Köhler and Corinphila, together with their sister companies of the Global Philatelic Network including John Bull held a stamp auction of superlatives. 

The exclusive rarities auction in the heart of London led to bidding battles hardly to be surpassed, from collectors from all over the world who in the room, by telephone and via the internet drove up the prices. Only the most precious rarities, including numerous "world rarities" which already had caused a stir in the run-up to the sale, came under the hammer, and for the whole duration of the auction the room was almost filled with spellbound people, so that again and again the bids increased to dizzying heights, and the fascination of philatelic auctions was palpable.     


Live Bidding @ John Bull Auctions

How do I bid in a Live Auction?

When the auction is about to start you will see the count down for this auction. If you are logged in you will be able to scroll through the lots and flag lots that you would like to bid on. The computer will then give you a reminder when these lots are up for bidding. With the audio link you can hear the auctioneer.

When the auction is about to commence the first lot will be displayed. A button will appear showing the amount currently being asked. To bid for the lot simply click the button. The screen will show if you are the current winning bidder. If you have bid and this does not show then another web bidder has got in before you. This means you need to bid again until you see you are the current winning bidder. If you are the successful bidder when the lot is sold the auction house will be in contact to arrange payment and shipping.
