SALE NUMBER 16 - SUNDAY 15th November 2020

Mayfair Philatelic is delighted to announce the hugely successful outcome of the November 15th Public Auction. After performing the requisite Covid related cartwheels, the online sale of 1100 lots went ahead as planned with sales in excess of £330,000 realised.

The opening sections of boxes and collections attracted fierce competition with very few remaining unsold, reflecting the strength in depth of the current market, equally evident with prices realised in the GB section. Some notable results here included £3120 for a fine mint 1870 1 1/2d rosy mauve - lot 561, £1440 for a cds block of 4 1883 10/- ultramarine - lot 613, £2160 for lot 717, a superb u/m De La Rue 10/- pale blue Seahorse, £2400 for lot 726 PUC 2 1/2d inverted u/m and £2400 also for lot 746, the very scarce Bradbury £1 Castle on chalky paper. A wonderful section of Ed VII and GV Essays, Proofs and Die Proofs sold particularly well, with lots 633/5, Ed VII 1901 'Paste up' Essays each fetching £2640 and each of a group of eight 'Transvaal' Essays selling well, lots 641 (1d in black on purple) and 643 (1d in black on red), realising £2040 and £2160 respectively.

As ever, demand for Commonwealth was strong, with lot 803, the scarce unused example of 1857 Western Australia 2d SG 15 fetching £1800, £960 was achieved for the Caymans 1908 2 1/2d on 4d mint - lot 880, £900 for lot 997, North Borneo 1904 4c on $10 with inverted surcharge, £1020 for the Perak $25 mint - lot 1000 and £1080 for lot 1080, St. Helena 1922 set to 15/- o/pt Specimen. The highlight of this section was perhaps the sale of lot 1096, Trinidad 1861 1/- with 'Cancelled' Perkins Bacon handstamp (one of just six examples), for £2760.
