On 13th December we held the final meeting of 2016 and as is tradition now this was the Chairman’s evening. The new Chairman, Jonathan Guy, gave a slide presentation covering one aspect of philately and the internet, namely buying from online auction websites.
The presentation covered a range tools and techniques which can be used to buy from websites such as eBay and Delcampe by ‘sniping’ rather than simply bidding.
The presentation was supplemented by a display of some of the items that had been won via ‘snipes’ over the preceding weeks.
The meeting closed with a mini auction of some albums of material and catalogues kindly donated to the society.
