Our April Auction follows on from the three well-supported sales held last year. Many of you will also have greatly enjoyed our exhibitions, with our November Exhibition charting ‘200 Years of Polar Exploration’ breaking all records of those held previously.
A wonderful offering of scarce and fascinating historical documents from Great Britain and Europe will be offered on 15th July; among many others, the following two documents aptly illustrate the depth of interest to be found within this year’s sale.
This sale primarily comprises items from the Straits Settlements and Malayan States. Throughout there are numerous hand painted essays, die and plate proofs from all the states plus a good range of issued stamps with many rarities.
We are pleased to offer for sale in 2020 this beautiful 1860 (27 Aug) envelope from Concord in New Hampshire, America to “Victoria Queen, Great Britain”. A quite exceptional combination of history and philatelic rarity, making this piece highly desirable.
