Auction catalogues from previous sales will also be given to inform residents of Lockdales services.

Lockdales has been holding six auctions per year since 1997 and often turn up some very rare and interesting items from the public at these events.

One item in particular, a unique gold coin from the Dark Ages, was brought along to a previous event. The owner was not aware of the value of it and Lockdales later sold it on its owners’ behalf at auction for over £19,000.
