Good Luck with your Bids!
Bid Budgets - bidders can use "bid budgets" to maximize their bids: specify a global amount to limit bids to and then submit a list of prioritized bids; whatever lots are won are awarded to the bidders according to their preference within their budget. Example: a person with a budget of $100 can bid on any number of lots up to $100 each and be awarded any of them as long as they are within his budget. Contact us.

Where there are 2 or more bids/bidders on a lot, if the winner has used a bid budget and forfeits his win in favor of a different lot, this lot will be awarded to the runner-up at his bid amount *prior* to the winner placing his bid (eg. awarded at his bid level net of any increases resulting from competition with the winner).

Where there is only 1 bid/bidder on a lot there is still a chance he's bidding with a 'bid budget': those interested in bidding at or below the starting price may submit their bids by email and we will keep them on file; in the event that a sole bidder is the winner of the lot but forfeits it for another lot, we will award the present lot to those bidders who submitted their alternative bids by email.

We encourage visitors to look closely at the display and read the descriptions carefully: there is a lot of information there, much never seen before, painstakenly assembled from primary sources. Over 90% of the information comes from our compilation called the "Handbook of Holyland Postal History and Philately", available free here; the rest comes from cited sources in the descriptions. There's a lot to learn and much to marvel at.
Our latest and pioneering research is published on our research center; our new "JerusalemStamps Bulletin" research journal is now online. This is our Facebook "Israel-Holyland Philately Research Group" - join us for latest groundbreaking news, from the past!
