Public Stamp Auction #29

Saturday 14th October 2017

  
Commencing at 12.30pm

West Plaza Hotel, Wakefield Street, Wellington, New Zealand
   

Welcome to our 29th sale. This annual auction should prove to be amongst the best that we have held as similar to last year’s sale, it comprises over NZ$1.6 million of estimates.

We are honoured to feature stamps from several major collections:

  • 1949 3d Vanguard mint.
  • 1906 1d Claret Christchurch Exhibition mint.
  • 1906 1d Claret Christchurch Exhibition x 3 used on cover.
  • The most extensive offering of Great Britain line engraved ever in NZ, including 2 x 1d Black blocks of 4 used, a mint pair, 2d blue block of 6 used and a 2d Blue block of 4 used.
  • Over 2,000 Full Face Queens.
  • Over 300 collections.
  • Good postal history including the late Frank Glen’s WWI collection.
  • 1996 Teddy Bear block of 40.

We are certain that there is something for everyone in this year’s sale.

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 Friday – or arrange to view prior to Wednesday 11 October at our premises in Otaki! We are only 20 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, Maree Malin, Ken Markham and Simon Smelt, who have produced another great catalogue for our 29th sale, ably assisted by our office staff of Jan, Lyndell, Keren and Jane. We look forward to your participation in this sale and wish you well with your bidding.
