Cherrystone Auctions, Inc. is a highly regarded stamp auction house founded in 1967. The family owned and operated company hosts huge Public Auctions every 6-8 weeks in its New York City galleries. The company plans to hold such an event later this year — on Wednesday, November 2nd at the aforementioned location.
With almost five decades in the U.S. philatelic industry, Cherrystone Auctions is one of the few seasoned stamp companies whose reputation has continued to soar over the years. The company is popular for organizing eventful public stamp sales/auctions every six to eight weeks in its New York City galleries. The company had announced an upcoming public auction to be held at the same location at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, November 2nd, 2016. The public auction is already open and pre-auction bids are already flowing in via email (firstname.lastname@example.org), phone, fax, and online via CherrystoneLIVE — the company’s web-based live bidding platform.
The single day event, which is expected to attract philatelists from all over the world, will feature Lots 2001-2446. Dubbed/themed as “The Monarchs Collection of British Commonwealth” auction, this event will feature rare philatelic materials from Great Britain and the British Commonwealth — stretching all the way from Aden through Zululand. Additionally, the company promises philatelic collectibles from all over the world including the United States, South America, Germany and its Colonies, Russia, Poland, Asia, and France and its Colonies. To enjoy multiple benefits including “interest-free advances of up to 75% of pre-sale estimate,” stamp sellers can place their philatelic collections on consignment with the auction house for sale in the upcoming auction. The company has clarified its consignment policy on its website and clients can download a detailed brochure on the same (for free) from the site.
As usual, Cherrystone Auctions will offer its clients multiple bidding platforms. Some clients have already made plans to travel to the physical location of the auction for in-person on-the-floor bidding. Other clients have decided to utilize the more convenient but equally effective online bidding platform: CherrystoneLIVE. Defined on the company’s website as “a web-based bidding system designed to interact with a live public auction floor,” CherrystoneLIVE enables the company’s clients to take part in live bidding and to compete with other on-location philatelists for collectibles in real-time. Alternatively, online bidders can request the company’s staff to live-bid on their behalf if they are busy. The company also offers additional pre-auction bidding options, which involve bid submission via mail, fax, e-mail, and phone, or via registered and authorized company agents.
Cherrystone Auctions has been operating in New York City since the company was founded almost 50 years ago. It also runs a full-fledged online stamp store for all its regional and global philatelic clients. Renowned for its world-famous Public Auctions, the company currently sits on the boards of various acclaimed philatelic clubs and organizations including the U.S. Philatelic Classics Society, American Stamp Dealers’ Association (ASDA), Philatelic Traders Society, The Collectors Club of New York, and the American Philatelic Society (APS) among others.
