Hide Auction Description

Welcome to our Featured Auction starting at 12:00PM EST on January 19th, 2019! • Live Internet Bidding for This Auction January 19th! That’s right, you’ll be able to listen and bid live during the public auction directly from your computer without having to attend in person. Instructions are in the back of this catalog but please feel free to call or email us and we’d love to talk more - we are very excited about this bidding improvement. Strong throughout US and Worldwide with some highlights below : People’s Republic of China nice runs of Mint 1940s-1980s singles, sets, collections and covers spread out over dozens of lots plus some great Republic lots. Germany First Day Covers all from the Otto-Wilharm correspondence with an incredible run of exceptionally scarce FDCs from the Third Reich era (see lots #101-125). US stamps are well covered in general from Classics through dollar value commemoratives, and specifically have some quite exceptional Peckmore proofs (including an Army & Navy set we’ve been unable to find records of), We also have some significant documents from a run of 1700s documents (incl Patrick Henry signature) to a multi-page foldout Civil War Officer’s signed letter that borders on a formal declaration of treason. You’ll want to check closely, we have a standout group of excellent lots in this auction with many scarce items and clean material. Please give us a call or send us an email with any feedback so we can keep improving, questions about items or bidding, or to consign your own collection to an upcoming Featured Auction.
