Testimonials

"And thanks to you both for handling the process with attention and care - it's been a pleasure. If anyone should ask me in the future, 'where to go for superior service and great results', I hope you're ok if I pass on your details."
   R. Muller

"Thanks for prompt cheque. Sale rate of 85% and realisations of 120% over the estimate were excellent."
   R. Linke

   G. Smith (USA)

"Stamps arrived in a great cover with lovely stamps attached, thank you Ian. Looking forward to your next auction, The lots were here before I could send your money, not many dealers do that now days so I thank you for your trust. Highest regards"
   R. Malham

"Arrived home yesterday to this nice surprise! Thanks again for a great auction, offering a broad range of interesting material."

"Congratulations on a good auction. You were getting some good realisations and very high sale rate when I was there. I think the good describing and set out of the lots helped and it was a good effort from your whole team."
   B. Austin

   J. Johnson

"I must send a big extra THANK YOU to the person responsible for choosing and carefully affixing and covering the excellent postage on the parcel. All received undamaged and you should know that is very much appreciated. Many thanks again for an excellent service."
   J. Higgs

"I have been self-employed, on my own, for 45 years and understand that it is very different from being part of an 'organisation'. I have a lot of respect for those in philately who battle on alone as dealers and auction house proprietors, in the face of huge commercial and logistical challenges. Working at times 16 hours a day, week after week, for a catalogue deadline is draining and there is no-one around who truly understands. In summary, congratulations for what you are doing."
   B. Peace

"I am very pleased with all the items. Thank you very much for your careful attention and for the bundle of carefully postmarked miniature sheets used for postage."
   D. O'Neill

"Thank you for the cheque. I did much better than I thought I would. Must be your wonderful auction and your staff. Thanks again."
   F. Gericevich

"Many thanks for your excellent service in selling my material."
   D. Brookson

"Thanks for your auctions and flexibility in payments. They allow lesser cashed persons to put together reasonable collections and at the same time they bring some exceptional items to all."
   L. Bremen

"Hi Ian, congratulations on your last auction. Good content and the auctioneer kept things moving, but the real treasures were in the box lots. I got one and WOW, exciting stuff. Keep up the good work and thank the staff."
   T. Spencer

"I have been using Ian Boulton for over 3 years to sell stamps and coins by auction. His professionalism, knowledge, honesty and attention to detail is second to none. He is truly outstanding. The research Ian undertakes when preparing and valuing items for sale is meticulous, thorough and accurate. And he is a really nice guy as well! Such a pleasure to deal with. He is constantly in touch to explain what is happening with your items. Nothing is too much trouble for Ian. He held onto some valuable gold coins for me for almost 2 years as the market was not right to sell. And, true to form, when the market did pick up Ian sold the coins and achieved a very good price. I would not have entrusted the coins in any other dealers hands apart from Ian Boulton's. In my opinion, Ian Boulton is the most exceptional, trustworthy and reliable stamp (and coin) dealer in Perth. I would highly recommend him to others (and I do!)."
   W. Appleyard

"Hi Ian, stamps arrived today in good order plus nice packaging, much appreciated. It's always difficult with a postal bid as it's largely guesswork but I'm very pleased with my purchases."
   P. Huband

"Hello Ian, I would like to pass on my thanks for the quick posting of the lot (Lot 700) that I purchased in your recent auction. It was pleasing to receive it so quickly."
   G. Laidler

"Another wonderful offering in your latest stamp auction No. 15. Expanding horizons for the auction bidder. I note street signs along with other metal objects (coins and tins). I will shortly have available the ultimate to round off any future auction - a stainless steel kitchen sink! Then it "will" have everything. Well done."
   R. Hammersley

"Hi Ian, I received the envelope with the two auction lots today. I want to thank you for covering the envelope with plastic and protecting the stamps on it. I appreciate the care and am looking forward to your next auction already!"

"Ian. I didn't get a chance to thank you properly yesterday. So thank you for sorting out the mess up with the bids on lots 1603/04, you could have kept quiet and I would have been none the wiser and $130 worse off! Thanks heaps, I really appreciate it."
