History

5
Australia - Small filing card box with a fascinating mixture of 20th century issues, haphazardly sorted into glassine envelopes and then put in the box in a seemingly random order. There is some obvious value and other potential value throughout. The obvious is modern face value, including 1990’s complete booklets - about A$85.00 in face value. There are also a number of glassines with mint issues 1980-1995 - conservatively estimating A$100.00 face value. There is some earlier material, like mint Explorers to 75c and revalued 5c on 4c QEII booklet panes which could help round out your collection. If you are looking for potential, there is a small handful of King George V "Heads" envelopes holding wholesale used quantities perfect for hunting down cancels or printing flaws. We noted a bit of similar material from the Aussie States too, plus there are glassines with mint and used covering everything in between. It will require your patience to pull this all apart to make sense of it. Estimate = $140.00

6
Barbados #70, 193a, 290/584. Very Fine mint Never Hinged duplicated selection/stock, all housed in one fat green stock book, all blocks of four or souvenir sheets. Apart from a couple of individual early blocks, the stock consists of almost all complete sets from the 1966 to 1982 period. A very useful lot for the Barbados or British Commonwealth dealer. 2024 Scott US$876.95 = $1,183.90
History

7
Barbados #94, 193b. Two better definitive issues in mint Never Hinged blocks of four consisting of the 1904-1910 issue 1p carmine (wmk 3) and the rare perf 14 x 14 printing of the 1938-1947 GeoVI issue ½p green. Rare and superior quality multiples of key issues. 2024 Scott US$430.00 = $580.50

Barbados - Postmark / Postal History based collection. An interesting array of postmarks, postal history and literature as compiled by a studious collector. Includes over 100 cancels on stamps (including many numeral cancels on the earlier issues), a half-dozen covers or postcards, a study group of the "One Cent" overprinted issues and a 1984 "Postal Censorship in Barbados…" handbook. While the condition is a bit mixed on the earlier material (selected primarily for postmarks), the group overall is very high-quality. It would take many years to assemble something of this nature. Estimate = $250.00
History

Belgium #1/316 plus semi-postals and parcel post. First century collection from 1849-1941 on KA-BE album pages. A total of 526 different stamps, some of the better ones arranged by the collector in black mounts. Noted better sets and singles throughout, including a couple nice looking King Leopold I and II issues, a number of nice tabs, #121 with a CDS cancel, a mint 1925 "75th anniversary" set. The "back of the book" includes nice sets of B28-B33, B69-B75 and a decent batch of early parcel post/railway stamp issues. Condition looks solid and many of the used have clean readable cancels. Estimate = $200.00
History

10
Belgium #108-122, 122 Shade. Complete used set of the 1915-1920 Albert I / Pictorial issue, series of 15 stamps, with an extra example of the 5fr key-value in a slightly lighter shade. An attractive offering. 2024 Scott US$276.05 = $372.65
History

11
Bermuda - King George VI "Keyplates" from the 2/- to £1 denomination, awaiting the specialists eye. The stamps in the top row are perf 13, the balance are perf 14, including the two still on-piece. Both 2/6 values have paper adhesion that should easily soak off. The three high values are fresh, well centered and have the lightest of light Hinging. These stamps were selected for their different shades, but we are counting them as the cheapest by Scott, so plenty of upside here (especially if using a Gibbons catalogue). Total 2023 Scott US$463.00 = $625.05
History

12
Bosnia #45l. The 5k Franz Joseph high value with the compound perforation (perf 9 1/4 at the bottom, perf 10 1/2 at the left and top and perf 12 1/2 at the right). Fresh mint, well centered. Small, unobtrusive hinge remnant and bit of album offset on back. One of the key values, and an eye-catching stamp. 2021 Scott Classic US$625.00 = $843.75
History

13
British Commonwealth - British Pacific and Antarctic Colonies collections in pair of Stanley Gibbons springback albums (one a green "Senator" the other a red "Utile" - retail over $150.00 for the empty albums alone). Includes Australian (Australian Antarctic Territories, Cocos (Keeling), Nauru, Christmas Islands) and New Zealand (Cook Islands, Niue, Tokelau, Ross Dependency, Penrhyn Islands, Samoa) administered colonies. Most are mint, many of the sets are complete, all housed in black mounts on quadrilled pages (expect the mint to be Hinged, but post 1975 most appears to be Never Hinged). The earlier tend to be a little sparse, but there is good value amongst what is there. Noted some nice overprints on New Zealand stamps, as well as many first sets being represented and the usual attractive topical coverage. A few hundred stamps in total, fresh and well-organized. Estimate = $250.00
History

14
British Commonwealth - Cayman Islands #162-167, Falkland Island Dependencies #1L28-1L33. Top quality Very Fine mint Never Hinged high values from two early QEII pictorial sets, consisting of the 1sh to £1 high values from the 1962 issue Cayman Islands engraved bi-colour set and the 1sh to £1 high values from the 1954 Falkland Island Dependencies "Ships" set. Unusual to get the top ends of sets instead of the usual low values! Will these stamps complete some collector's album page? 2024 Scott US$194.95 = $263.20

A representative collection from these popular and attractive island issues covering the 1895-1953 period. Mainly mint Hinged but many used as well (some both). The fifteen Samoa "EXPRESS" stamps, shown the last page, are not included in the valuation. While there may be one or two genuine stamps in this group it will take an expert to comment on these. 2024 Scott US$451.65 = $609.75

25
Burma - Japanese Occupation - First intoxicating group of 21 different "Peacock" overprints on Burmese stamps and officials. Nice condition and lightly hinged and a couple are "signed" by the "President". Don’t let appearances fool you as the footnote in Gibbons states: "Collectors are warned against forgeries of these overprints, often in the wrong colours or on the wrong values". This lot includes denominations, officials and revalues for which these overprints were never recorded. There are double overprints (including in different colour ink), inverts, one overprinted in red on the gum side, and black on the other. We are presuming that these are all forgeries and are a bargain at less than $10.00 apiece. With the original album page. Estimate = $160.00

Australia - Small filing card box with a fascinating mixture of 20th century issues, haphazardly sorted into glassine envelopes and then put in the box in a seemingly random order. There is some obvious value and other potential value throughout. The obvious is modern face value, including 1990’s complete booklets - about A$85.00 in face value. There are also a number of glassines with mint issues 1980-1995 - conservatively estimating A$100.00 face value. There is some earlier material, like mint Explorers to 75c and revalued 5c on 4c QEII booklet panes which could help round out your collection. If you are looking for potential, there is a small handful of King George V "Heads" envelopes holding wholesale used quantities perfect for hunting down cancels or printing flaws. We noted a bit of similar material from the Aussie States too, plus there are glassines with mint and used covering everything in between. It will require your patience to pull this all apart to make sense of it. Estimate =

Barbados - Postmark / Postal History based collection. An interesting array of postmarks, postal history and literature as compiled by a studious collector. Includes over 100 cancels on stamps (including many numeral cancels on the earlier issues), a half-dozen covers or postcards, a study group of the "One Cent" overprinted issues and a 1984 "Postal Censorship in Barbados…" handbook. While the condition is a bit mixed on the earlier material (selected primarily for postmarks), the group overall is very high-quality. It would take many years to assemble something of this nature.

Bermuda - King George VI "Keyplates" from the 2/- to £1 denomination, awaiting the specialists eye. The stamps in the top row are perf 13, the balance are perf 14, including the two still on-piece. Both 2/6 values have paper adhesion that should easily soak off. The three high values are fresh, well centered and have the lightest of light Hinging. These stamps were selected for their different shades, but we are counting them as the cheapest by Scott, so plenty of upside here (especially if using a Gibbons catalogue). Total 2023 Scott US$463.00 =

Small, unobtrusive hinge remnant and bit of album offset on back. One of the key values, and an eye-catching stamp. 2021 Scott Classic US$625.00 =

British Commonwealth - British Pacific and Antarctic Colonies collections in pair of Stanley Gibbons springback albums (one a green "Senator" the other a red "Utile" - retail over $150.00 for the empty albums alone). Includes Australian (Australian Antarctic Territories, Cocos (Keeling), Nauru, Christmas Islands) and New Zealand (Cook Islands, Niue, Tokelau, Ross Dependency, Penrhyn Islands, Samoa) administered colonies. Most are mint, many of the sets are complete, all housed in black mounts on quadrilled pages (expect the mint to be Hinged, but post 1975 most appears to be Never Hinged). The earlier tend to be a little sparse, but there is good value amongst what is there. Noted some nice overprints on New Zealand stamps, as well as many first sets being represented and the usual attractive topical coverage. A few hundred stamps in total, fresh and well-organized.

British Commonwealth - Cayman Islands #162-167, Falkland Island Dependencies #1L28-1L33.

Unusual to get the top ends of sets instead of the usual low values! Will these stamps complete some collector's album page? 2024 Scott US$194.95 =
