Tony Wiseman
February 22nd 1926 to May 15th 2012
A Life in Stamps
William Antony (Tony) Wiseman was a scientist, dedicated stamp collector and a respected man in public
life. Born in 1926, the second of 3 children, he was brought up in Leatherhead and was educated at
Merchant Taylors’ School followed by St John’s College, Oxford where he studied Chemistry.
He started work as a research chemist for Courtaults then Gilbeys in London before forming his own
scientific instruments company. This was followed by him taking up politics as a Conservative; initially
to fight gravel extraction where he lived with his first wife Susan in Bray, Berkshire. His pinnacle was being
elected Chairman of the then Berkshire County Council 1989-1992. His concern for the environment
continued; reflected in active campaigning for the Council for the Protection of Rural England CRPE,
fighting housing development south of Reading.
From boyhood Tony was a keen stamp collector and researcher, developing into a postal, particularly naval,
historian as his passion matured. He was an expert on government overprints and was consulted by auction
houses concerning potential forgeries. He won many awards including a Gold Medal for a series on the
Inland Revenue entitled ‘The Taxman Cometh’ at Stampex 1993, the RM Trophy in 1994 and a Philatelic
Writers award in 1999. He wrote many articles for stamp magazines and two detailed philatelic volumes the
‘The De La Rue Years’.
His life wasn’t limited to work and philately: Liveryman of the Merchant Taylors’ Company, antiques, vintage
cars, clocks, railways, history again particularly naval history, maps, sport, playing table tennis, writing
scientific and postal articles and a practical knowledge of many things.
He was a highly intelligent man who retained his enthusiasm for new discoveries and political developments
and was a loving husband to Lily, father to Sally, John & George and had six grandchildren.

5.3.1
5.3.2
5.4
5.5
of all lots comprising three or less items as:
genuine, unless otherwise described in the sale
catalogue or by SG; and
correctly described, including where applicable the date of any certificate forming part of
the description of the lot.
Except as expressly stated in these Conditions
SG excludes all other warranties and conditions with regard to the information, lots and
services whether express or implied or statutory (including all implied warranties and
conditions of merchantability and fitness for
a particular purpose.
Vendor and purchaser agree that SG will not
be liable to them either jointly or severally, or
to any third party for:
loss of items received inadequately packed,
mounted or arranged; and
any indirect or consequential loss or damage
including loss of profits, revenue or business
howsoever caused (whether arising out of any
negligence or breach of these Conditions or
otherwise) even if that loss or damage was reasonably foreseeable by, or the possibility of it
was brought to the attention of SG.
Save where the purchaser is entitled to reject a
lot pursuant to clause 6.3, in which case that
shall he the purchaser’s sole remedy, the liability of SG under these Conditions (whether
arising in negligence or otherwise) will not
exceed the greater of 125% of the amount of
any relevant successful bid or if no successful
hid, the reserve price if any (whichever is applicable to the circumstances) regardless of the
cause or form of action.
Nothing in these Conditions shall limit SG’s
liability for death or personal injury resulting
from
SG’s negligence. Vendor and purchaser (respectively) agree to indemnify SG against all

shall be at liberty to reject any lot comprising
three or less items if he/she has paid the Price
and if he/she: 6-1.1 gives SG written notice of
intention to question the genuineness or as the
case may be the accuracy of description of the
lot within twenty one days from the date of
sale; and
proves that the lot is not genuine or was incorrectly described; and
returns to SG within twenty eight days from
the date of sale the lot in the same condition as
it was at the time of sale PROVIDED that SG
may, at its discretion on receiving a request in
writing from the purchaser, extend for a reasonable period the time for return of the lot to
enable it to be submitted to expertisation.
Where a lot has been submitted to expertisarion the costs of such expertisation shall be
paid by the person (which term shall include
any company) who returns the certificate and
item(s) to which such certificates relates. The
onus and cost of proving a lot to be not genuine or incorrectly described is on the purchaser. The inability of any recognised expert or
expert committee to express a definite opinion
shall serve to discharge the onus on the purchaser and shall be a ground for rejection of
the lot concerned.
Where the purchaser of a lot discharges such
onus of proof and complies with the provisions of clause
SG shall set aside the sale and repay to the
purchaser the Price paid by him in respect of
the lot.
Any lots comprising four or more items, or
miscellaneous lots containing items which are
undescribed shall be taken by the purchaser
with all (if any) faults, lack of genuineness
and/or errors of description and/or numbers
of items in the lot and the purchaser shall
have no right to reject any such lot; save that,
notwithstanding the foregoing where before
a sale a person intending to bid at the sale,
gives notice in writing to and satisfies SG that
any such lot contains any item or items undescribed in the sale catalogue and that person
specifically describes that item or those items
in that notice then that item or those items,
shall, as between SG and that person be taken
to form part of the description of the lot for
the purpose of clause 5.1 and clauses 6.1, 6-2
and 6.3.
No lot shall be rejected if subsequent to the
sale, it has been damaged and/or marked or
treated by any process whatsoever unless SG’s
permission to subject the lot to such marking
or treatment has first been obtained in writing.
No lot illustrated in the sale catalogue or on
the SG Auction Web Site shall be rejected on
the ground of characteristics apparent from
its illustration. Whilst care has been taken
to-show colour illustrations as accurately as
possible, reprographic and printing processes
cannot always guarantee true reproduction of
colour images. Therefore, no lot illustrated in
colour shall be rejected on the grounds that
actual colour differs from that of the illustrations.
These Conditions together with any special
conditions, notices, descriptions, statements
and other matters in the sale catalogue and
elsewhere, including the SG Auction Web Site,
concerning any lot are subject to any statements modifying or affecting the same made
by the auctioneer from the rostrum prior to
any bid being accepted for the lot.
SG operate an auctioneers’ VAT margin
scheme for the auction of lots which are
eligible. Lots suffixed by the letters “T” & “F”
in the sale catalogue are subject to VAT at the
rate then prevailing on the hammer price. If
such a lot is exported, outside the EU, and
the purchaser produces proof of export in the
correct form, the VAT on the hammer price is
refundable by SG.
8. General
SG shall not be liable for any delay or failure
8.1
8.2
8.3
8.4
to perform its obligations under these Conditions caused by circumstances beyond its reasonable control.
SG reserves the right to vary these Conditions
with immediate effect from time to time without notice.
In the event that these Conditions are held by
any competent authority to he invalid or unenforceable in whole or in part, the validity of
the remaining terms shall not be affected.
These Conditions and any sale organised by
SG shall be governed by English law and shall
be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the
English Courts.
