Welcome to our 51st sale which includes the special ‘Albion’ collection of Great Britain. This collection was formed over the last 40 years by a collector who used to buy large lots in many auctions across the world. By taking only the best and most interesting items for himself and selling the rest, he formed a large collection over the decades.There are hundreds of 1840 penny blacks and twopenny blues, dozens of Pound high values and hundreds of postal history items.

Amongst the British Commonwealth is a collection in a New Ideal catalogued over £100,000 with plenty of nuggets to be extracted. Also a fine collection in 8 boxed albums and other good mixed lots with plenty of high values. If, as I do, you like Classic issues, there are good lots of Cape of Good Hope Triangulars with pairs and multiples, Mauritius Primitives including some early Post Paid and the first issues of Brazil, the famous Bull’s Eyes.
