Due to ill health, our previous auctioneer Sean Brady has had to retire. Enquiries relating to the recently ended auction 103 should still be directed to Sean at perfinauction at gmail dot com.

Our new auctioneer is Ron Mills who is producing the next auction, which will be listed here in the near future. Enquiries relating to future auctions can be sent to: ronmills dot perfins at gmail dot com

From now onwards Ron will be pleased to receive lots for inclusion in future auctions.

The society usually holds 3 or 4 postal auctions each year. Each auction contains over 300 lots, covering a wide range of perfin and commercial overprint material of all countries.
Members of the Society can bid in the auction, and also sell lots through the auction.
Commission is charged to vendors and the income generated is used to keep the subscription fees low.

Auction payments can be sent by the following methods:

§ Cheques in Sterling drawn on a UK bank should be made payable to ‘The Perfin Society’ and posted to the (Hon. Secretary/Treasurer): Stephen Steere, 1 Nicolson Road, Orpington, Kent. BR5 4EH.

Bank transfers from other countries are very expensive and would involve you paying the sending & receiving charges in total about £30.00.

§ By PayPal using the email address of or Members are required to add a fee to the total, see below, to cover PayPal charges.

§ Cash can be sent at the member’s own risk, however as so many people have put Treasurer in my address that I find mail often shows signs of being tampered with, so it is not advisable.

Please note that the Society will not accept GB decimal postage stamps for payment of auctions.

PayPal can be used for payment of all Society purchases, though you must stipulate your intention on the Auction Bid form. All PayPal payments are subject to a charge of £1 for amounts up to and including £20, and 5% on amounts above that. You can however set up a payment at your end where no fee is charged to us, in those cases do not add the fee and put a note on the payment. The following email addresses can be used with PayPal, or

A new consecutive numbering system, starting at 100, has replaced the previous system where a new set of numbers was started each year.

Please note that non-members cannot bid in the auction. (Not a member? Join us!)
