To have a better chance of being successful as a postal bidder we recommend setting a limit for the total amount of your
purchases (excl. 20% buyers premium): for example, bidding on a range of lots with a total amount of CHF 10’000 and setting
a limit of CHF 7’500 for your purchases means that the total for lots knocked down to you will not exceed the limit you have set.
We know from experience that postal bidders are rarely successful on all lots. On the other hand, you might have been interested
in other lots as well, but not knowing which lots would be knocked down to you and being worried to spend more than a certain
amount, you did not bid on them. Giving a total purchase limit (see also the Bid Form in this catalogue) enables you to have
a better chance of being a more successful postal bidder!

Switzerland. Note: "Woodblock" covers overseas are tremendous rarities, with three covers
known to the UK, one to France and one to New Zealand.
