Our February sale proved to be our best yet in terms of attendance and realisations with some fabulous prices achieved for our vendors.
Overall results were £231,000 including premium and there were many individual standout lots, particularly in the Commonwealth sections.
British Africa was certainly in demand as collectors vied for the fine quality singles and collections. In the KUT section for example, the rare 1922 £75 overprinted specimen sold for £2070 and the £100 value at £2875 (almost full catalogue value). Ceylon high values were also popular. The 1912 1000r again with specimen overprint was finally knocked down for £977 against an estimate of £650.
