Auction - November 2021

Please note: To place bids on auctions you MUST be logged in.

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to our November Public Auction, with a very precise 938 lots going under the hammer, ‘behind closed doors’ once again in our London offices. We have another very strong sale to offer you with 20 ‘room lots’ preceding lot 21, a superb 1863 ‘Lallier’ album, well filled with the majority of spaces filled and as such, full of ‘classics’. Lot 22 is a very strong pair of foreign ‘Ideals’, lot 23, a fine pair of Commonwealth ‘Imperials’, followed by our usual range of world, Commonwealth (strong Australian States feature), GB and foreign albums, folders and boxes.

A particularly fine offering of GB once again features many watermark varieties, with difficult used QV inverted (note SG 212), inverted and reversed and reversed watermarks, also scarce ‘TF’ errors of watermark (SG 84d and 101ab). Unmounted inverted GV include both 1912 9d olive shades, 1924 10d (the first of these we have had for some time), PUC 2 1/2d, 1915 DLR Seahorse 5/- both inverted and reversed and no watermark varieties including the 1912 5d plus 1924 2d and 2 1/2d. Also of note, QE2 Bradbury 2/6d inverted u/m (and 5/- on gummed side), unmounted Ed VII ‘No Cross on Crowns’ with the 4 DLR 10d shades plus the very scarce 6d SG 303a, a 1912 1/2d ‘Cyprus’ (mounted) and the spectacular 1973 Explorers SG 923a pair.

As you may well know, Sadie has left us to begin a career in the world of English Literature, her first love; needless to say, she will be missed and we wish her all the best. In the meantime, as we look for a replacement, the administration will be a little stretched so do please bear with us! Communication by email is more likely to elicit a prompt response than a message left on the answerphone. Viewing will be available as previously in our offices, but by appointment only.

We are currently seeking material for our March auction so should you be looking to sell or consign, do please get in touch.

All the best and good luck in the sale!
