PUBLIC AUCTION #38 - November 23, 2019
The Charles Freeland Collection of Montserrat
The Barry Friedman Collection of British West Indies
The John Cooper Collection of Silver Jubilee Postal History
The Duane Larson Collection of Jamaica
Our 38th Public Auction will be a delight for you if you are a used collector. We have the properties of several folks who appreciate the scarcity and challenge of collecting stamps that have done postal duty! The sale starts with the incomparable Silver Jubilee postal history collection formed by John Cooper. He sought out commercial usages for many decades and we are pleased to present the culmination of his efforts. We are featuring the Br. America collections of Barry Friedman whose used stamps, postal history and postal stationery were selected with care and knowledge. His censored covers are particularly collectible. Again we offer one of the superb collections formed by Charles Freeland, FRPSL. His Montserrat is replete with rarities, proof material and marvelous covers. Duane Larson's Jamaica and in particular the Llandovery Falls issue, has yielded an interesting study of many aspects of that issue. Steven Gardiner's Basutoland covers from his Gold Medal collection offers obscure and scarce material. James Stubbs was both a collector and part-time dealer whose interest was used stamps of primarily the KGVI reign. He also collected Rhodesia Double Heads and Admirals with emphasis on cancellations and plate flaws, all of which we offer here. And lastly, a comprehensive Sarawak collection is presented with interesting varieties, postal history, large multiples for plating, etc.
If you cannot be present at the sale, we would be glad to accommodate you with telephone bidding. Please make your arrangements in advance. Remember, our buyer's premium is still only 15%, not 20% like virtually all of the British auctions and there is no 20% VAT on our lots. If your appetite for lots in this sale is larger than your budget for the sale, please talk with us about no-interest extended payments.
We will be attending the Nojex/ASDA show at the Hilton Meadowlands, East Rutherford, NJ November 15-17, 2019, Booth #312. That is the week before the auction and we will be bringing the auction lots there for viewing. We will also have our show stock with material for direct sale so be sure to stop at our booth. We also buy! What have you to sell?
We are starting to plan for our 2020 Public Auction. If you have been considering selling all or a portion of your collection, please contact us so that we might discuss showcasing your material.
In May, 2020 we will attend our fifth International Exhibition in London. Our first was the 1980 Exhibition at Earl's Court! We look forward to seeing you at this Exhibition which promises to be memorable. Please stop by and visit us if you are planning to attend.
Now, on with the sale!
