       Harmers can help you locate elusive items. As professional philatelists, we are aware of much of the material available both publicly and privately.

The Difference Between Special Request and Want Lists

 

           A client uses our Want List when they would like to be notified of items as they become available to us through auction consignments or private treaty. We take a more proactive approach and seek sources outside the materials consigned to us.

Special Requests

       We actively scan competitor’s auctions for your item. If appropriate, we will use our decades of sales knowledge to directly contact current owners of the material sought and make an offer to purchase the material on behalf of our Special Request clients. Typically, Special Request items are high end or historically significant items. These items require the attention of one of our senior level associates.

Fees

     Our typical Special Request fee is between 15% - 35% of the item’s sale price depending upon the effort required to locate the item and our involvement in securing the property.
