The experts of Lockdales Auctioneers will be providing free valuations to the public on Thursday 5th October, 11am to 3pm at Thame Town Hall.
There will be experts providing valuations on the collectables highlighted on the advert below. No appointment is necessary at this event, simply turn up with your items and the valuers will be happy to see you.
Members of the public will have the option, if they wish, to consign their goods to auction (subject to terms & conditions). Cash purchase offers are also available. Valuations will be provided free of charge, with no obligation. High quality illustrated catalogues from previous auctions will be given away on a complimentary basis in order for the public to get a better idea of the services available.
Lockdales have conducted hundreds of events throughout the UK, and some very interesting items have been brought along. One in particular was a Rolex wristwatch, showing signs of age, with a curious textured black dial. Leading up to the sale it became clear that this was no ordinary watch. The serial number was traced to the small batch of Rolex Explorer wristwatches, specially made for Sir Edmund Hillary and his team of mountaineers in 1953, those who famously made the first ascent of Mount Everest. The watch sold at auction for over £27,000!
