Tentative Auction Schedule For 2021

Below is our tentative schedule for the weekly auction for all of 2021. Please note that this is just an approximate schedule, as some sales may require more time to assemble and lot than originally anticipated. Will and I will have a much better idea of what will be required for a particular theme as we get to working on it, but the schedule below will give you a good idea of what is to come, so you can plan, and know when to send us material if you are wishing to sell.

Each week, we will aim for approximately 300-400 lots, and the auctions will be broken down into four sections as follows:

  1. A small selection of older Canada and Provinces that will run every week, and will vary greatly, having no particular focus. 
  2. A larger Canadian theme that will comprise approximately one-third of the auction.
  3. A larger foreign theme that will comprise another one-third of the auction.
  4. A section of Nigerian material, which will run every week, and together with the early Canadian material, will comprise the last one-third of the auction.

The schedule we intend to follow for 2021, subject to tweaking, is thus:
