NEW YORK AUTUMN ROUNDUP
New York, September-December 2020
The recent Canada & British North America e-Auction at Spink New York showcased the diversity of the country’s philatelic history, with items ranging from early stampless covers through to modern errors and varieties. Among the highlights were a newly-recorded example of the rare “Paid at St Margarets Bay” crowned circle, as well as a range of desirable Small Queen and 1898 Map destination covers.
Coming this autumn is an exceptional e-Auction of the Double Head and Admiral stamps of Rhodesia, a detailed examination of these fascinating issues, from plating to colour shades to postmarks, that is sure to please students of this complex and rewarding field.
Later in the season will be the Philatelic Collector’s Series sale, a strong and diverse offering ranging from quality single items to significant intact collections. Collectors of United States will enjoy the selection of hundreds of Waterbury, Connecticut fancy cancels, while Great Britain collectors will have the opportunity to acquire lovely Penny Black and Two Pence Blue covers to Rowland Hill.
The Autographs & Documents e-Auction will offer Part I of the Mike Roth Aviation Collection, as well as letters, photographs, manuscripts and more from historical figures including Martin Luther King Jr., Walt Disney, Charlotte Bronte, and Victor Hugo. From explorers and pioneer aviators to authors and political icons, this sale is a must-see for collectors seeking a tangible connection to history.
