Welcome to our 37th sale. This bi-annual auction comprises nearly NZ$1.2 million of estimates.  We are honoured to feature stamps from several major collections of outstanding quality, including Hilton Dicken's estate, NZ Postage Dues ex Jim Shaw, and a private client's massive Australia.

• 250 collections, all world, including about 40 New Zealand & 30 Australia.
• A nice range of postal history and stationery.
• SG1 and the scarce 1d brown NZ wmk.
• Some good NZ decimal varieties.
• Over 70 lots of Postage Dues
• Strong Great Britain and British Commonwealth, incl Cape of Good Hope 4d Perkins Bacon cancel.
• Overall the property of over 100 vendors.

We are certain that there is something for everyone in this sale, with conservative estimates to attract bidding.

The past few months have been challenging, but the market has rebounded strongly.  Overseas bidders please note that the mails are still slow, so please send your bids by email, via the website fax or phone through to us, if possible.

We urge collectors planning to attend this sale not to leave their viewing until the day of the sale as not too many people can view the same item simultaneously – so come on the Thursday or Friday – or arrange to view prior to Wednesday 9th September at our premises in Otaki! We are only 15 minutes from Paraparaumu Airport and ten minutes from Waikanae commuter railway station.  We can pick you up from either! (By appointment only).

Like last year’s sale we expect a huge interest with a large number of room bidders. My thanks go to Chris Burtt, David Smitham, Alan Jackson, Ken Markham and Simon Smelt, who have produced another great catalogue for our 37th sale, ably assisted by our office staff of Maree Malin, Jan Macdonald, Kirsten Fulford, Keren Malin, Jane Smelt and Jackie Job.  We look forward to your participation in this sale and wish you well with your bidding.
