DO you have any medals, jewellery or stamps that you would like to have valued?

If so, forthcoming events in Denbighshire and Gwynedd will provide the perfect opportunity.

There will be experts providing advice on the following types of collectables: Coins (including British & World, Sovereigns, Krugerrands, Royal Mint commemoratives and proof sets), stamps, banknotes, medals and militaria, clocks, watches, jewellery, gold, silver, pre-1900 documents/books and maps, cigarette-cards, postcards, pre-1960 sporting programmes and tickets, pens, vintage toys, comics, scientific instruments, swords, bayonets, de-activated and antique firearms.

Many other types of antiques and collectables will also be covered.

No appointment is necessary at these events, people can simply turn up in their vehicle - or on foot - and they will be issued a ‘buzzer’ to call them when the expert is available.

Cash purchase offers are available and there may also be the option to consign to auction, subject to terms.

Valuations will be provided free of charge, with no obligation to sell.

A spokesperson for the roadshow said: "Over the years we’ve turned up some amazing items at our events.

"We have been, and may still be the British record holders for a Rolex Submariner wristwatch sold at auction, having sold an example made (around) 1964 with orange numerals for just under £280,000 including premium.

"The owners consigned the watch at one of our events in the East of England, and we sold it for them on commission.

"Other famous watches we have auctioned include a Rolex Explorer from Sir Edmund Hillary’s Mount Everest expedition."
