Our Auctioneer Ron Mills has decided to retire from the post after four very successful years running Society Auctions. Auction 122, distributed with the December Bulletin and online here, will be his last.
Note: Bids for Auction 122 should still be sent to Ron Mills.

We welcome William Hall as our new Auctioneer who will receive lots with immediate effect for auctions commencing in the New Year. Rules for lot submission are unchanged.
Email: for selling enquiries only.

Any enquiries relating to current and past auctions should be sent to Ron Mills at

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.
(Please do NOT put Secretary or Treasurer on the envelope, thank you.)

§ Direct UK bank transfer to the Society account with Lloyds Bank; The Perfin Society, sort code 30-99-08, number 22724660, Reference (abbreviated reason and your surname), but please email Stephen as well. 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
