    G'day Folks,

    On offer this time around some 1/20th Gold Lunars and some Special Silver Lots :)
    Series II Tiger and Dragon Gold 1/20ths, Some Canadian 50cent pieces (and some Aussie ones too), A group of "Luckies" (Feng Shui Dog and Ganesh rounds), some early Libertads and an almost complete (missing 1 :oops: ) set of Proof Sterling Franklin Mint "Great Explorers" :D

    Auction finish starting at 18:00 WST (19:30 SA / 20:00 EST) - Sunday 27th August... TOMORROW NIGHT!!!

    ALL Lots finishing at the same time!! *With the usual "5 minutes after Final bid" actual finish for each particular Lot (Forum Timestamp used) *

    Any valid bid for a particular Lot extends the Finish for ALL Lots!!
    ie. The Auction will be Officially over once ALL bids have finished!!


    **Note** As a further "clarification", highlighted from previous Auctions, any bids not deemed "valid" (ie. raising a bid on a Lot your bid is already currently leading or a bid at less than / same price as the current leading bid for a particular Lot) will NOT extend the Finish time of the Auction... (Hoping this adds clarity :rolleyes:...)

    *No edited Bids, please :) the Forum does indicate "edited" when posts are edited (look above the "Quote Reply" right hand side) so if you make a bid and it turns out the same or lower than a previous bid please place a new post for the bid to make it higher rather than "edit" the post with the unsuccessful bid - although editing to clarify a Lot # is fine :oops: *


    Due to no "seconds" showing on Forum timeclock any duplicate bids with the same timestamp will be "first in line" gets the spot ;)

    ~SPOT RESERVE - Highest bid over Reserve price will be the winner on ALL Lots

    Postage at Winner's Choice/Cost/Risk (at this stage...)

    BONUS – FREE Pre-'46 Florin(s) for winners of Multiple Lots :cool:

    And without further ado, on to the Auction...

    *Both coins in great condition, some better pics here :) *
