Welcome to sale 44 and we have an interesting array of material this time with many British Commonwealth singles, sets and collections.
Beginning with a fine pair of albums containing early mint USA and Imperial China, a good range of World collections, mixed lots and estates, then running into one country collections. Standout areas include the large Madagascar stamps in nice condition, Fiji High Values, France with several very nice collections including the good high values, many German Area lots including unmounted mint post-war sets which are so cheaply estimated. Also British Africa with collections of Rhodesia Double Heads, Admirals and more.
At the Marriott Hotel, Old Shire Lane, Waltham Abbey, EN9 3LX. Just off Junction 26 of the M25 View Map
Our September sale was very well attended and raised over £275,000 for the vendors.
The specialised Regionals collection sold well, with 85% of lots sold. Especially popular were a number of Artwork lots by the stamp designers and errors such as the 2005 British Journey 47p error of value which sold for £813 including premium (estimate £500).
Elsewhere in the general collections, a large British Commonwealth accumulation in large boxes sold for £12,800 (estimate £10,000) and should keep the buyer busy over these longer winter evenings.
A superb collection of Boer War covers in many albums sold for £4400 (estimate £3000) and a very fine Coin collection made almost ten times its reserve price at almost £2000. There is still considerable interest in Chinese stamps as a 1962 Mei Lan Fang sheet fine used realised £3950 (estimate £3600) and all the other China lots sold, many above our estimate.
We are currently working on our February (Stampex) auction which is certain to be extremely busy and we are looking for Consignors with material for this sale. If you have any lots for auction, please contact Rob on 01376 585357 to discuss your collection and arrange a visit.
