We are delighted to tell you that we have been instructed to sell the remaining major portions of the collections formed by the late David Jefferies of Edinburgh. We have a great deal of work still to do on this, but our general plan is as follows;

              Scottish Postal History; This will appear broken down into numerous lots, some as collections, others as single items. There is much interesting material, and some areas are covered in great depth.

              Saint Kilda; This excellent collection of postal history, postcards, and other material will be broken down into many lots.

              Cinderella Stamps of the World; The main part of this collection extends to 51 volumes of world, and about 15 volumes of UK. Some of this will appear as country lots, some in mixed groups, and some items will be sold individually. All categories of cinderellas are included.

              Scouting; Further to the special auction we held on 20 June, which was very successful, more has been given to us to deal with. This includes much good Mafeking material (postmarks, covers, stamps, postcards, and so on), plus further sections of the world Scouts stamp collection. There will also be some non-philatelic ephemera similar to much that was sold in June.
