Welcome to our 35th sale. This bi-annual auction should prove to be among the best that we have held as similar to last year's sale, it comprises over NZ$1.5 million of estimates. We are honoured to feature stamps from several major collections of outstanding quality:

• Exceptional New Zealand postmarks.
• New Zealand SG 1.
• 1906 1d claret Christchurch Exhibition x 3 on cover.
• 1906 1d claret Christchurch Exhibition, unused.
• 1906 1d claret Christchurch Exhibition, MUH.
• 250 collections, all world, including about 70 New Zealand.
• Extensive lots of Full Face Queens, about 1,000 in total!
• Good range of early New Zealand to GV.
• Over 200 Red & Blue Boy Healths.
• Three Reefton provisionals.
• Strong NZ Life Insurance section.
• NZ Beer Duties including 26/6d.
• Australian States, Ceylon, ex John Lovis.
• Strong Great Britain.• Fascinating Europe incl Spain and Germany.
• Overall the property of 135 vendors.

We are certain that there is something for everyone in this 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 Thursday or Friday – or arrange to view prior to Wednesday 18th September 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 35th sale, ably assisted by our office staff of Jan Macdonald, Kirsten Fulford, Keren Malin, Paul Stark and Jane Smelt. We look forward to your participation in this sale and wish you well with your bidding.
