If you are new to our auctions, please see our general auction information page.

The figure at the end of each description is our estimate, in pounds sterling. Bids are accepted above or below this figure, although bids below about 75% or 80% estimate only have a tiny chance of success (and are not normally sold at less than about two-thirds of estimate). Estimates are in Pounds Sterling do not include the 10% buyer's premium.

After the main listings you will find various information and instructions. This is followed by a sample bid form, and a copy of the the notes that appear on the reverse of our bid forms.

This is a public auction, in which written/telephone/e-mail bids are also accepted. If you are bidding with us for the first time, please bid by two of these methods with the same bids (e.g. by post and by phone, or by telephone and by e-mail), or bid in good enough time for us to get back in touch with you with any queries.

New customers attending one of our sales in person for the first time, and intending to bid, are invited to make themselves known before the sale starts. This saves the auctioneer from having to ask for a name during the sale.

Stampsand Collectables, 23 April  2012                             Page 3                       Estimate.

                   Collections and Mixed Lots.
        1     Entertaining and noteworthy collection in springback album. This covers the whole world
              and is largely composed of individual items a collector has purchased over a number of years,
              with a bias to older Commonwealth, but with other Europe and Overseas included, and inc-
              luding many forgeries and reprints (which are noted as such). Some examples inc. India 1965
              10r printed on gummed side, Victoria (Australia) KE7 1 perforated OS c.t.o., Newfound-
              land 1861 1/- m.m., nine Scinde Dawk forgeries, Gambia 1922 4/- (3 different perfs) m.m.,
              UK 1858 1d red plate 188 mint sixblock, 1d red with OUS opt., 1840 penny blacks (6) and
              twopence blue (1), NZ 1971 18c Maori Club u.m. with major black shift, British Virgin
              Islands 1937 Coronation set perforated
SPECIMEN, and so forth. Interesting lot, with much
              useful. Mainly fine, but some faults or poorer mounting. (100s)
           ..               ..                500.
        2     Small box with bundle of stockcards of selected items mixed Commonwealth,
Europe,
              and Overseas. Each card generally catalogued pounds, or tens, sometimes hundreds.
              Total stated to catalogue 10,000+ (100s)
  ..               ..                   ..        500.
        3     Old and broken ledger used as an album, with almost everything being 19th and early 20th
              Century (mainly up to about 1920). Typically mixed condition, and had had some picking
              at some time, but with interest throughout and inc. some fiscals, postal stationery, etc.
             
UK includes a penny black. Fiscals inc. UK Consular Service 1887 $5 to $50, 1902 $1, $2,
              $2, $5, $10, $20. Postal stationery inc. some China/Indo-China area. (c.3,500)
                400.
        4     An attractive and entertaining mint (tiny number of used) world collection in four binders
              of Hagner/Prinz pages. The strength is in the disparity and coverage, the bulk of stamps
              from very roughly 1890s to 1960s (though earlier and later included), with examples of
              many territories not often seen (e.g.
Armenia, Cambodia, Ethiopia, Fezzan, Ionian Islands,
             
St. Thomas & Prince, Suriname). Most countries represented by a set or short set - very
              seldom the commonest stamps, and often worth a few pounds per country (usually at least
              a pound or two). (c.3,000+)
     ..                 ..               ..                   ..               ..                400.
        5     Interesting world collection in two cartons. General ranges without much modern, with
              strength in France, but with better items/sets here and there throughout . . . BUT the coll-
              ection has been damp, leaving some mould, and many mint stamps stuck down (some
              solidly, others removing with caution). A worthwhile lot, but quite a serious project for
              somebody. (1,000s)
                 ..                 ..               ..                   ..               ..                200.
        6     World collection in six SG Devon albums alphabetically A-K and N to R. A moderate
              general range but with a scattering of better (most of which are highlighted, and are
              c.1950-80s). (1,
000s)               ..                 ..               ..                   ..               ..                150.
        7     Eight stockbooks (some fuller/emptier) of mainly mint stamps, generally quite modern,
              of Commonwealth, Europe, and Overseas mixed countries and inc. sets, part sets, mini-
              ature sheeets. Many pictorial (inc. thematic birds, flowers, etc.), some less common areas.

        8     World collection in four Simplex albums, with more value in Commonwealth countries,
              little after about 1950s, and inc. a number of 1937 Coronation sets,
Australia 1931-36
             
SPECIMEN set (3) heavy m.m., etc. Also an old Lincoln album. (100s)                 ..                120.
        9     Medium box with decent mix. Whole world, mixed types and periods, without too much
              that is cheap and common, and inc. many useful, or interesting, or less commonly seen.
              (1,000s)
                ..                 ..                 ..               ..                   ..               ..                100.
      10     Twenty-one various albums and stockbooks with a wide variety of contents - some proper
              collections, some remainders, some of duplicates, etc. (Many 1,000s)
                 ..                100.
      11     Mixed carton inc. stockbook of mint
UK (inc. a few better commem phosphors, about 45
              face in decimals), smaller stockbook of used
UK (inc. c.70 penny reds), plus mixed world
              in small stockbooks, tins, thousands of duplicates on cards, etc. (1,000s)
            ..                100.

While we prefer not to take in future auction lots actually at the auction (weve got enough to do !) we understand that it makes sense for some people to do so. But please, if you are delivering auction material to us at the auction, mark up your packages with your vendor reference number. If you dont have a number please call us in advance of the sale day so that we can give you one.

 

It is a while since we printed this notice in our catalogue, but it needs to be repeated from time to time;

We are the only people who should be doing business in or at the auction premises. We do not allow any other business without our express permission. We know that people often take the opportunity of meeting at our auction to carry out small sales or exchanges, and we don't generally have any problem with that, as long as we are asked. Otherwise no approaches should be made to other customers with a view to making sales or soliciting business. On pain of death. (Well, actually, probably on pain of a slightly embarrassing telling-off, but at very worst a ban.)

 

A Buyers Premium of 10% (vat-inclusive) will be added to all sale prices.

uro Currency; We are happy to accept Euro cash payments in our shop. We normally allow the market rate rounded down to the next whole penny. For example, at the time of writing, the market rate is 0.8252, so we are allowing 82p per Euro (which is probably better than your bank will give you). You can also pay for lots in this auction by Euro banknotes (postal customers please confirm before sending). We also accept payments in our shop in Euros, and we buy the old legacy currencies, as well as other coins and notes.

Please bid early. In the case of equal bids, the lot will be sold to the person whose bid was received first (unless free bidding in the room equals the top book-bid, although the Auctioneer will try to regulate the bidding in such a way as to avoid this).
 Apart from viewing the lots in person, you can get a better description of any lot, by telephoning or writing.
 (Photocopies are available, at a charge of 15p per copy (colour copies A4 pages; 1st copy 50p, 30p per page thereafter), plus postage.)

If you are not already on our mailing list, please send us 7 with a note of your name and address. Regular bidders and buyers may qualify for free renewal. Rates abroad are Europe 12, overseas 15.
Successful postal bidders should note that postage stamps are not an acceptable means of paying your account.

 Open Bids ("Buy Bids") are not normally accepted. If such bids are made, they will be taken to mean a bid of ten times the printed estimate.
