BRITISH BORNEO STAMPS AND COVERS

Spink London, to be conducted behind closed doors, 16th April 2020

This sale comprises the territories of Brunei, Labuan, North Borneo and Sarawak. Of particular note throughout, and in particular the sections of North Borneo and Sarawak, is the strength of the essay and proof material on offer, much of which has not been on the market for nearly thirty years. In North Borneo the highlight is the 1931 50th Anniversary issue with some delightful hand-painted essays and a wonderful range of progressive die proofs. Again, in Sarawak most issues are represented
with a range of wonderful essays and associated proof items.

British Borneo Stamps and Covers will be offered for sale at Spink London, behind closed doors, on 16th April 2020. For further
