Welcome to our 39th sale. This bi-annual auction again comprises over NZ$1M million of estimates.  We are honoured to feature stamps from several major collections of outstanding quality, including the estates of Ralph Buchanan, Hilton Dickens, Derek Holmes (UK) and Gerard McCoy, as well as the wonderful collection of a private collector, and 80 other vendors.

• 220 collections.
• Extensive NZ postal history, including Military, from the collection of the late Derek Holmes.
• Quality Full Face Queens and later Definitives.
• 2/- and 3/- Admiral FDC's - unique!  A new discovery.
• Good range of NZ exhibition issues.
• 1949 Vanguard.
• 1905 2d chestnut Life Insurance MUH.
• 1913 12/6d Queen Victoria Long Type mint (4 known) 
• 1931 Arms including 4 x 35/-.
• Excellent range of flight covers, all world including 60 Zeppelin covers.
• Strong Great Britain and British Commonwealth.

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

To those clients looking to widen their collecting interests or start a new field, there is a wide range of collections which provide a wonderful opportunity to form the start of a significant collection.

The market remains strong after a good recovery from the Covid lockdown.  Overseas bidders please note that the mails are still very slow and unreliable, 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 Tuesday 21st 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 39th 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.
