Longley Auctions is a public auction firm specializing in selling worldwide stamps, postal history, postcards and philatelic literature. It is owned and operated by Bill Longley, BSc (University of Toronto). Bill formerly worked as a scientist at a large research facility, managed a division at a management consulting firm and operated a postal history business. He was a stamp collector as a child and part time dealer since his late teens, putting himself through university buying and selling stamps. His 30 years of experience are at your disposal.
Started in 2000, Longley Auctions specializes in Canadian material, particularly postal history but our sales routinely contain large worldwide collections. We’ve sold many important collections including Steinhart, Dale-Lichtenstein, Rixon, Palmer, Harrison, Parsons, Wynns, Hogg, Hobden, and many more.
Our auctions are marketed through our website, email, attendance at shows, and our full colour auction catalogues mailed to an extensive and exclusive list of specialist collectors and dealers. We pride ourselves on offering lots in all price ranges from banker box lots at $50 to single stamps worth more than $10,000. We would be happy to add you to our notification list for future sales, send you a complimentary catalogue or discuss a sale of your collection.
We also pay referral fees if you know someone who is considering selling their collection.
We sell through our website, via email direct to clients as well as attending trade shows. You will routinely see us at the large Canadian shows and conventions including RPSC, BNAPS, PHSC, Orapex, Canpex and FIP International shows such as Canada, US and Great Britain. We also attend local shows in Ontario.
Estate Trustees will be glad to know that we have assisted in the sale of hundreds of estates. We offer free appraisals and advice, with no strings attached. Maximizing the sale of a stamp collection is something we specialize in. Call for a free consultation.
