Australia #1/126, O3/O10. Two pages of early used Australia, arranged in numerical order by Scott. What is counted is the "Roos" and King George V "Heads", with individual catalogue values up to $35.00, including an attractive group of 8 different "OS" overprints. A few nice cancels are noted. Expect only the occasional minor fault. The four duplicates of the 9d "Roo" and the lower five rows on the second page (including 1920s-1930's commemoratives / definitives) for one reason or another, are not counted in the total catalogue value. 2023 Scott US$465.15 = $627.95

Australia #1/2884. A ‘Roo and KGV "Heads" rich mounted collection with regular issues up to about 2008. Includes a touch of mint (and a bit heavily hinged) issues, with attractive copies of #5, 45 and 49. The "Roos" run up to 5/- values (#44 with a surprisingly light parcel cancel). There is a good run of "Heads" including dies, perfins, cancels (and include an envelope of stamps that didn’t quite make it to the pages). The assignment of some watermarks could use double-checking, but we have left them as the original owner had them listed. The 1930’s onwards is a mix of mint and used, and the occasional nice multiple, with some "back of the book" and a few covers to add to the appeal. After about 1980 the collection gets sparser but did see denominations up to $20.00 and some modern "Specimen" overprints. Approximately 1300 stamps, with light duplication. Estimate = $200.00

Australia #66/154, C4. Eye-catching group of 28 pre-War mint, Never Hinged blocks, arranged in numerical order by Scott. Includes some GeoV "Heads" (5 of the blocks are duplicates), plus the basic Kingford-Smith issue, large Kookaburra and Lyrebirds, the Melbourne issue (both perforations on the 3d), Macarthur, Anzac, GeoV on horse "Anzac" and the perf 11 airmail issue. Generally, very fresh appearance, there are a few with light even toning or couple of tropical spots (almost universally affect the back of the stamps). The C4 has a couple of short perfs, because of such a large perforation on a large stamp (which is why they changed the perf in a subsequent printing). Many of the blocks have light pencil marks with an old catalogue number, or the perforation, which should easily erase. Counted as Never Hinged, but with no premium for imprint or plate blocks in the total catalogue value. 2023 Scott US$2861.00 = $3,862.25

Australia - Do-it-yourself collection kit. Includes a near new Stanley Gibbons album with pages to 1985, with lots of mounts added, but about the only stamps mounted are mint 1980’s issues. Inside the cover of the album are a couple of collection fragments with used "Roos", GeoV "Heads" and a number of 2d-1/- commemorative issues up to the late 1930’s, with good potential and lots of great cancels. The lot also comes with a small shoebox filled with envelopes, glassines, loose stamps and presentation packs, which would be enough to make the album feel very full and have you looking for a place to mount the extensive more recent issues. In the box is a mix of mint and used by the hundreds, including "back of the book" (airmail, Australian Antarctic Territory). If you like your auction lots full of treasure packets, this lot is for you. Estimate = $160.00

Australia - Modern grouping of 86 different used, being ONLY high values from the 2014-2022 period (no domestic letter rate issues). These are very hard to find now with so few people using stamped postal mail. 2024 Scott US$268.00 = $361.80
History

6
Australia and States - An enticing "end of consignment" accumulation of mint and used Australia. A black stockcard holds some of the most intriguing items including a GeoVI coil paste-up pair, officials, South Australia issues and higher values from New South Wales and Tasmania. There is a 5/- "Cattle" and a 10/- explorer plus an old group of postage dues that look diverse at first glance. A page of Aussie states including some nice cancels. There are old album fragments, including a nice page of Victoria postal fiscals (with fiscal cancels) and the lot ends with about 20 circa 1980s presentation packs. Estimate = $180.00
History

7
Australian States - Fascinating study lot of 364 stamps, covering all six stamp-issuing states, mounted on Scott pages, with lots of pencil notes to help guide the buyer. Includes New South Wales (34), Queensland (70), South Australia (53), Tasmania (32), Victoria (105), Western Australia (70). Plenty of interesting material here including different printings, perforations, watermarks (including a couple of "locally produced" inverts, not listed by Scott or Gibbons), and a bit of "spice" added with the occasional perfin or revenue stamp. Definitely some cancel potential too for the postmark hound. Estimate = $150.00
History

8
Australian States - New South Wales #24/128, J1-J2, O13/O25. Selection of issues from 1854 to 1906, consisting of seventy-seven stamps, in mainly used condition, on two pages. The best stamp in this group is #40a, the aniline lilac 6p. Note the Watermarks on the 5p and 8p "diadems" from the top of the sheet showing "NEW SOUTH WALES POSTAGE". This was put there for the benefit of the printer so he would be sure to use the correct paper when printing the stamps. For some strange reason this is only, briefly, mentioned in Gibbons and no premiums are shown even 'though such stamps are obviously much scarcer than those with regular watermarks and are a legitimate variety collectible. For the same strange reason the Australian Catalogues have never attempted to list the Official perforated initials stamps for any of the States. See a few examples (un-priced) at the end of this offering. Owner's 2023 Scott US$475.15 = $641.45

9
Austria #28/800 plus Back of the Book. Pre-1968 mounted collection of 1050 mint and used stamps, a bit light in the 19th century, but with better coverage over the next 65 years, with strength in "back of the book". Great cancellations throughout, the material becomes increasingly mint and by the early 1960’s the stamps are mostly Never Hinged. Lots of $3-$10 sets, with the occasional better item. A black stockpage of "bonus" (items the collector just hadn’t got around to mounting) includes B264-B267 mint Hinged catalogues $35.00 and the "Birds" airmail set C54/C60 (missing only the 1s value, which catalogues $243.40). Expect some mixed condition, but almost no duplication. All in a black Borek springback binder. Estimate = $160.00
History

10
Bahrain #1/295. Small aqua 32-page Lighthouse stockbook from the distant past containing 50 years of Bahrain, starting with mint and used overprints on Indian stamps and later British issues (noted blocks of 4 and 10 of the 1948 Olympics). After they started issuing their own stamps in 1960, there is some spotty mint and used coverage (there are singles cataloguing up to $7.50 each like a block of #PT2). But the pleasant surprise is a few of the early souvenir sheets including Horses #224, Concord #247a, Dogs #256 and five copies of wildlife #295. The stamps are in generally excellent condition, while the stockbook has seen better days. 2023 Scott US$825.30 = $1,114.16

Belgium and Belgian Congo - Calling Leopold I detectives. This 2000 stamp mounted collection starts with a couple dozen imperforate Leopolds followed by other 19th century material with collector-identified printing and perforation differences. Noted the 1925 "Two Kings" set complete mint, a couple of copies of #213 used and many better cancels on the earlier material. The coverage of the mostly used issues is pretty good up until 1983. The "back of the book" is well represented including a nice used set of B31-B33, a mint set of B78-83, souvenir sheets and many Parcel Post stamps.. On top of all this is a 300 stamp Belgian Congo lot, mostly used, with a couple nice postal cards and finishing with about 50 Belgian East Africa (Rwanda) stamps. Estimate = $240.00

There is some decent GeoV including a used Bluenose, Parliament, Cavell, etc. The "back of the book" has a decent showing with some Special Delivery, Airmails and Postage Dues. From the 1940’s onwards, the issues become increasingly mint and increasingly Never Hinged. Collection is mounted by chronological date of issue, so finding if sets are complete can be a bit of a challenge. Overall condition is excellent, with very few faulty stamps noted. 2023 Scott US$2903.50 = $3,919.73

Australia #1/2884. A ‘Roo and KGV "Heads" rich mounted collection with regular issues up to about 2008. Includes a touch of mint (and a bit heavily hinged) issues, with attractive copies of #5, 45 and 49. The "Roos" run up to 5/- values (#44 with a surprisingly light parcel cancel). There is a good run of "Heads" including dies, perfins, cancels (and include an envelope of stamps that didn’t quite make it to the pages). The assignment of some watermarks could use double-checking, but we have left them as the original owner had them listed. The 1930’s onwards is a mix of mint and used, and the occasional nice multiple, with some "back of the book" and a few covers to add to the appeal. After about 1980 the collection gets sparser but did see denominations up to $20.00 and some modern "Specimen" overprints. Approximately 1300 stamps, with light duplication. Estimate =

Includes some GeoV "Heads" (5 of the blocks are duplicates), plus the basic Kingford-Smith issue, large Kookaburra and Lyrebirds, the Melbourne issue (both perforations on the 3d), Macarthur, Anzac, GeoV on horse "Anzac" and the perf 11 airmail issue. Generally, very fresh appearance, there are a few with light even toning or couple of tropical spots (almost universally affect the back of the stamps). The C4 has a couple of short perfs, because of such a large perforation on a large stamp (which is why they changed the perf in a subsequent printing). Many of the blocks have light pencil marks with an old catalogue number, or the perforation, which should easily erase. Counted as Never Hinged, but with no premium for imprint or plate blocks in the total catalogue value. 2023 Scott US$2861.00 =

Australia - Do-it-yourself collection kit. Includes a near new Stanley Gibbons album with pages to 1985, with lots of mounts added, but about the only stamps mounted are mint 1980’s issues. Inside the cover of the album are a couple of collection fragments with used "Roos", GeoV "Heads" and a number of 2d-1/- commemorative issues up to the late 1930’s, with good potential and lots of great cancels. The lot also comes with a small shoebox filled with envelopes, glassines, loose stamps and presentation packs, which would be enough to make the album feel very full and have you looking for a place to mount the extensive more recent issues. In the box is a mix of mint and used by the hundreds, including "back of the book" (airmail, Australian Antarctic Territory). If you like your auction lots full of treasure packets, this lot is for you. Estimate =

Australian States - Fascinating study lot of 364 stamps, covering all six stamp-issuing states, mounted on Scott pages, with lots of pencil notes to help guide the buyer. Includes New South Wales (34), Queensland (70), South Australia (53), Tasmania (32), Victoria (105), Western Australia (70). Plenty of interesting material here including different printings, perforations, watermarks (including a couple of "locally produced" inverts, not listed by Scott or Gibbons), and a bit of "spice" added with the occasional perfin or revenue stamp. Definitely some cancel potential too for the postmark hound. Estimate =

Australian States - New South Wales #24/128, J1-J2, O13/O25. Selection of issues from 1854 to 1906, consisting of seventy-seven stamps, in mainly used condition, on two pages. The best stamp in this group is #40a, the aniline lilac 6p. Note the Watermarks on the 5p and 8p "diadems" from the top of the sheet showing "NEW SOUTH WALES POSTAGE". This was put there for the benefit of the printer so he would be sure to use the correct paper when printing the stamps. For some strange reason this is only, briefly, mentioned in Gibbons and no premiums are shown even 'though such stamps are obviously much scarcer than those with regular watermarks and are a legitimate variety collectible. For the same strange reason the Australian Catalogues have never attempted to list the Official perforated initials stamps for any of the States. See a few examples (un-priced) at the end of this offering. Owner's 2023 Scott US$475.15 =

Austria #28/800 plus Back of the Book. Pre-1968 mounted collection of 1050 mint and used stamps, a bit light in the 19th century, but with better coverage over the next 65 years, with strength in "back of the book". Great cancellations throughout, the material becomes increasingly mint and by the early 1960’s the stamps are mostly Never Hinged. Lots of $3-$10 sets, with the occasional better item. A black stockpage of "bonus" (items the collector just hadn’t got around to mounting) includes B264-B267 mint Hinged catalogues $35.00 and the "Birds" airmail set C54/C60 (missing only the 1s value, which catalogues $243.40). Expect some mixed condition, but almost no duplication. All in a black Borek springback binder. Estimate =

Bahrain #1/295. Small aqua 32-page Lighthouse stockbook from the distant past containing 50 years of Bahrain, starting with mint and used overprints on Indian stamps and later British issues (noted blocks of 4 and 10 of the 1948 Olympics). After they started issuing their own stamps in 1960, there is some spotty mint and used coverage (there are singles cataloguing up to $7.50 each like a block of #PT2). But the pleasant surprise is a few of the early souvenir sheets including Horses #224, Concord #247a, Dogs #256 and five copies of wildlife #295. The stamps are in generally excellent condition, while the stockbook has seen better days. 2023 Scott US$825.30 =

Belgium and Belgian Congo - Calling Leopold I detectives. This 2000 stamp mounted collection starts with a couple dozen imperforate Leopolds followed by other 19th century material with collector-identified printing and perforation differences. Noted the 1925 "Two Kings" set complete mint, a couple of copies of #213 used and many better cancels on the earlier material. The coverage of the mostly used issues is pretty good up until 1983. The "back of the book" is well represented including a nice used set of B31-B33, a mint set of B78-83, souvenir sheets and many Parcel Post stamps.. On top of all this is a 300 stamp Belgian Congo lot, mostly used, with a couple nice postal cards and finishing with about 50 Belgian East Africa (Rwanda) stamps. Estimate =
