Internet/Mail Sales - BIG NEWS:
In March of 2011, we launched Danbury Stamp Sales as our internet division, and since then it has completed 86 sales, the last on April 27, 2014. After that sale we took a pause to begin implementing new e-commerce technologies, which will result in a more enjoyable online experience for users, including mobile devices. With this launch our first sale has an important change: Kelleher Auctions acquired Michael Rogers, Inc. As part of this merger, our internet sales division (Danbury Stamp Sales) has been renamed as Michael Rogers Online. Our goal is to share philately worldwide with diverse and interesting material for entry level to advanced collectors. Our second MRO branded sale is No. 5002, featuring U.S. and Worldwide stamps and postal history. It is closing on Sunday, August 31, 2014, and it is now online!
