An auction for the benefit of Midwest Philatelic Society (MPS)
members is held at each monthly meeting, except that December’s
auction proceeds are donated to the club. One must be a member of the
MPS to put material in the auction (see below for exception), but
non-members are welcome to attend and to bid on any of the lots in the
auction. There are no buyer or seller commissions when lots are sold.
The monthly auction provides an opportunity for members to obtain new
material for their collections.
Items are allowed to be put in the auction by non-members as
follows: Persons who are not members of the MPS but who have a
stamp collection (stamps and related materials) they want to sell,
may put these items in the MPS auction on a one-time basis. Forms
for submitting materials for auction are available prior to the
auction. Persons must be 18 years old or older, must provide
identification, and must certify ownership of the items being put
up for auction; all decisions by the auctioneer are final. The
Midwest Philatelic Society offers this as a service to our community.
