UPDATE No. 47.


Monthly update on progress of the Golly reference material and other topics for 1-Jul-20…


The GOLLY AUCTION continues to progress well. This month we added a new feature - the ‘Condensed View’ for those who like to bid on multiple items towards the end of the auction, the multiple view allows you to see all lots on a single page without having to scroll up and down.

Some notable highlights from the GOLLY AUCTION 006 include:

  • 1980’s Silver Tennis Pendant P7 for a very reasonable £155
  • A pretty special PREWAR GOLFER (3d with rare backstamp) for £345
  • A beautiful PREWAR Blackcurrant for £155
  • ... and the star of the show was a scarce Balloon badge in brass for £380

The Balloon badge was our first rarity 5/6 badge… we look forward to further rarities in future auctions.

(all prices subject to fees and postage).

As a reminder to all bidders, the Golly Auctions are scheduled to take finish on the last Saturday of every month (except December when we take a break). All Golly Guide subscribers will receive an email notification to inform them.

The next auction is scheduled to open from 18-Jul-2020 and conclude on 25-Jul-2020 at 9pm. As usual, Golly Guide subscribers get a 50% discount on commission for all successful purchases.


The Golly Guide updates have taken a back seat whilst we get the Auctions on their feet. We look forward to continuing with the updates in due course.

Thanks for continuing to share your finds. We continue to record these and look forward to reporting on them in due course. 


For those who have been trying to get hold of a Golly Checklist, you may have noticed that it has been out of print for a number of months. However we have now sourced a new printers and have the first batch of checklists back from them which we can offer for sale. If anyone would like a Checklist they are priced at £20 + £3.70 p&p (or £4.70 for recorded delivery). For the first five collectors who order a copy I will not charge any p&p. Grab one while you can!

The summer months are expected to continue to be busy for us, so there is likely to continue to be only a limited amount of movement in the Golly Guide and Golly Checklist content but as and when we complete any further updates we will let you know.


That's all for this month...

See you next month for another update!
