Auction 221

This is an experimental sale model. All the lots are in San Jose and the owner has sent a list of the material and scans. Lots won in Costa Rica will be hand delivered to avoid further losses in the mail. Lots won in other cities will be delivered by Socorico or the owner. We will continue the same bidding system through Raul as well as payments.

Send all bids and payments to Raul Hernandez, 4204 Haring Road, Metaire, LA 70006 USA or rherna3870@aol.com.

The closing date is December 27, 2015 at noon.

The winning bid will be one raise over the next highest bid.

Bids a step above the second highest bid will be placed in our web site two and one week and one or two days prior the closing date. The same information can be obtained by phone, fax or mail from Raúl Hernández. A buyer fee of 5% will be charged, but it will be waived if payment is received within 15 days after notification. If no payment is received 30 days after notification the lot will be assigned to the second highest bidder. The cost of postage is additional. Packages over $100 will be sent insured and foreign ones will be sent airmail registered. Consult www.usps.com for postage rates.

Catalogue price reference is "Scott Standard Catalogue", other reference numbers are the "Costa Rica Postal Catalogue Fourth Edition 2014" or "Costa Rica Revenue Stamp Catalogue 2006".

Low value stamps are not graded; in a lot the overall grade represents the highest value stamps.

Submit items for next auction by January 31, 2016 by noon to Hector Mena, P.O. Box 14831, Baton Rouge LA 70898.
