Frazao Auctions is a new and completely independent company, created from the ground up to serve the philatelic auction market. It has no connection with any other company in the auction business.

Frazao Auctions is managed by Marco Frazao, who has the help and experience of more than 50 years from his father, Luis Frazão, RRPSL, RDP, AEP. Other specialists from various areas of management and philately help in the preparation and execution of our philatelic auctions.

Yes, you can contact us to make an assessment of your stamp collection: you will find out the market value of the collection, as well as sales alternatives, if that is of interest to you. In addition to stamps, we also evaluate covers, postcards, and philatelic literature, both from Portugal and abroad.

You can participate in our auctions in either of these two ways; we will be happy to welcome you to the place where the live auction will take place (location in Lisbon yet to be defined), but you can also follow the auction live through the Bidspirit platform (you will need to beforehand to be able to bid).

In 2023 auction #1 took place on June 30th and July 1st, and auction #2 will take place on the 15th and 16th of December.
