Hide Auction Description

Welcome to our July 19th, 2020 Auction of Quality Stamps and Postal History! With 836 lots, the auction will start ending earlier than normal, with the first lot closing at approximately 1:00 PM EST but otherwise will follow the same bidding format as our regular Sunday weekly auctions on www.evstamps.com with a 15% buyers premium added to each winning bid. Most lots open at $20 with photos and approximate ending times of all lots on our website. Bidding on a lot will be extended by 1 minute if a bid is made within the last 1 minute to avoid sniping.To register and bid for this and all of our auctions, visit www.evstamps.com and click on the Auctions tab. View current bids, lot descriptions, and all photos. As always feel free to contact us with any bidding questions and we also take absentee bids by mail, phone, SAN or email. However, for interactive live auction bidding you will need to register on our website. The online philatelic market has been booming in spite of the difficulties in the outside world. Some of that is surely displaced sales from closed stamp shows and stores like ours in Richmond, VA, where while we are still taking appointments it feels nothing like normal. However, I think there is a longer term trend that will continue to draw new collectors and dealers at work, too. Electronics are seemingly everywhere and used for everything. Counterintuitively, this only makes philately more appealing in the world of ubiquitous electronics; stamps are a refuge and release. This will only be accelerated by the current pandemic as countless collectors are finding or returning to this amazing hobby and some of them will stay hooked. Of course, if you've read this far, you've likely already fallen down some philatelic rabbit hole ? And so on to the matter at hand, but don't forget we have an auction every Sunday with 100+ stamp and postal history auction lots with most lots starting at $10 - the average ending price is a little under $100 per lot but that includes some $10 lots and some $2000 lots. Contact us to consign now!This auction starts with Worldwide Postal History and ends with the US Stamps selection including :-Certified Worldwide scarce to rare issues including German States & Russia #3 & 4-A strong selection of German postal history including Zeppelin covers, War and post-War groups, and an incredible run of concentration camp prisoner letters and parcel post receipts-Confederate States has an excellent run of Imprint Covers to Turned and Adversity Covers plus some excellent position pieces and blocks in the stamps section-US Postal History has a 2 pairs of #1, pair of #2, dozens of 1847-1861 issues and usages, a strong run of Civil War Patriotic Covers and an absolutely incredible group of 1898 Spanish-American War Patriotic covers coming to market for the first time in 20+ years-US Stamps is heavy on the Classics through Trans-Mississippi issues with loads of high values, a Mint OG block of 4 of #38, #505 Mint NH error PSE graded 95, C13-C15 complete set of Zeppelin Plate Blocks, plus a first time to market modern rarity in the Unissued Yellow Hat Largest Existing Used Block of 20Check out our auction and let us know if you have any questions.
