Penny Black Winner at Autumn Stampex


Once again, the free children’s auction proved a hit at Autumn Stampex.  After completing the activity pack, the young collectors can gain up to 250 points to use in the Stamp Active auction to try to win prizes donated by dealers and friends. Bidding was lively for a wide range of lots including Penny Reds, illustrated covers and stock books as well as some large packets of stamps.

At the end of the auction there was a prize draw for a Penny Black for all the youngsters who took part. This year’s winner was CUBA MAINE, aged 11 from London.  The runner up was Wilfred Bazley who received an Autumn Stampex 2016 Smiler Sheet, donated by the Philatelic Traders’ Society. Cuba was presented with his prize by Robin Cassell of Mulready Philatelics who generously donated the Penny Black.
