    This auction has 360 lots on offer, covering a wide spread of material with a strong emphasis on Southern Africa, without neglecting the many other fields of interest.

    Among the many highlights are a set of Israel 1948 Doar Ivri with full tabs UM, the scarce 1969 RSA 4c Postage Due both mint & on cover (with certificates!), RSA 1987 40c "Word of God" Bible Stamp UM, besides other major errors & varieties. There is also much useful & unusual pre-Union & Anglo-Boer War stamps, ephemera & covers (a number being addressed to famous personalities), and good sections of SA 1933-48 Screened Pictorials & SA Christmas booklets. A large cover collection has been suitably broken down presenting some scarce autographed items, a wide range of flight covers including 2 crash covers & ever-popular Imperial Airways material, besides some scarce Revenue lots (all 4 former Homelands being among those featured).

    As always, there are a number of fine intact collections (SA Postage Dues & France, to name just two), as well as the usual box-lot accumulations, a wide range of thematics and a selection of Essays, Proofs & Specimens.

    Please consult the Index of Contents to find your particular field/s of interest.

  • AUCTION 21 - 8th July 2017 Start: 26-Jun-2017 - Close: 8-Jul-2017 HISTORY: REFERENCE ONLY!

    Auction 21 is another step upwards in terms of the number of lots on sale but hopefully also in quality and variety of content. Obviously what comes in for auction is not a matter of choice from our side but we are pleased to note that the material coming our way is improving in quantity and quality.

    The highlights of this auction are many, making it difficult to classify, but certainly there are fine lots of the ever popular KGVI period, for example a very fresh LMM set of Aden 1937 Dhows, besides the other reigns which are also fairly well represented. Strength as usual is based across the whole Southern Africa region with some fine Bechuanaland, Cape of Good Hope, Natal, Rhodesias, South Africa and SWA etc, scattered throughout.

    Besides a very useful array of valuable literature, there are good sections of postal history and flown covers, as well as a wide range of much sought after collections and accumulations for the dealer or online trader.

    With the auction closing soon (8th July), please bid early to avoid disappointment.
