Online Sale No. 75
Welcome to our 75th sale, which was an online auction only, comprising 913 lots featuring a wide range of Australasian and All-World material.
All Australian Colonies are represented with useful collections, and very scarce unused imperforate issues, including Sydney Views, Half-lengths, and the Western Australia 2d and 6d lithographs. South Australia includes a one-frame exhibit of the 3d ‘Long’ stamp which contains all the rarities and is offered intact. From New South Wales and Victoria there is a fine selection of postage dues used on cover.
Australian Commonwealth has an exceptional collection of coil issues which includes most of the important rarities. There is a fine selection of the ½d and 1d Kangaroo and ½d to 2d George V issues as used in coil machines, including some scarce Kangaroo covers. The George VI and Queen Elizabeth II period includes a number of rare coil starter strips, coil perf. blocks, and two 2d George VI plate numbers from the special coil plates. The Decimal floral coils include fine studies, and a number of missing colours.
A large offering of Postage Dues includes a very extensive offering of the bicoloured issues, including a number of rare monograms and imprints, perforation errors, plate numbers, U.P.U. specimen stamps and complete sheets. A highlight of the large offering of Postal Stationery is no less than fourteen of the rare stamped-to-order lettercards, which represents a significant portion of the surviving material. A small group of World War I material contains a diverse range of ancillary material and ephemera.
Rest of the World includes a number of collections, and highlights of Great Britain are the 1840 1d and 2d unused stamps offered together as one lot.
