As autumn has now definitely arrived on our shores, we shall be holding our penultimate auction of the year! As usual there is a wide range of stamps and collections for our clients to admire and choose from. The G.B. section is particularly nice with a variety of 1d blacks, 2d blues, and 1d reds with scarcer postmarks and coloured cancels both as singles and on cover. Other noteworthy items are a number of hilarious Mulready caricatures (like the one below – lot 418 ‘Ladies School’) and Q.E. pre-decimal varieties.
The commonwealth and foreign sections are also interesting with many better items including some especially nice and unusual New Zealand varieties (lots 337 and 334)!
We hope that our news section sparks the interest of budding philatelists as well as provides our current customers with up-to-date news about what is going on at Tony Lester Auctions. For any new clients, we are always happy to provide stamp valuations so if you have any stamps for sale or any philatelic queries, do feel free to ring us on 01926 634809. And don’t forget that the next stamp auction will be on December 1st!
