Essex Stamp Auctions Ltd held a very successful September auction with overall results over £360,00. The strong demand for British Commonwealth we have seen recently continued, as many collections and stocks in the sale sold well.
Amongst the individual realisations, the Ascension 1924-33 1½d "Line Through C" variety SG 12e in an unmounted mint pair, catalogued at £190, sold for £145 (est £75)
A resurgence in the popularity of India saw this 1854 4a Head Die III, Frame I, surge from its £400 estimate and sell for over £1600. Also the scarce Feudatory State of Orcha 1942 10r turquoise hinged mint but with some toning, SG 45, sold for £442 (estimate £200).
The Swaziland 1961 50c on 5s type III, SG 75b, catalogued £850 is a very difficult stamp to find. An unmounted mint example sold for £420 (est £250). While a surprising result was a pair of Southern Rhodesia printers samples, both imperforate and stuck onto piece with Waterlow and Sons Limited specimen overprints which finally sold for £535 against an estimate of only £100.
