The auction features extensive Great Britain used in Ireland, superb 1916 Easter Rising Emergency cancels, 170 lots of Overprints incl. never-hinged blocks of Scott # 13, 37, 38, 93-95 among other rarities, followed by the most extensive range of Essays we have ever assembled in one auction.
The Definitives and Commemoratives include many unique items and recent discoveries, the most spectacular of which is the 1986 Christmas 21p (Sc.#677) in the only perfect IMPERFORATE block of 4 known (no blind perfs!).
This is followed by Irish Railways, where we have broken up an extensive collection into sensible single lots. The Airmails include Zeppelin covers from no less than FIVE different South America flights.
The auction ends with a compact offering of Irish Postal Stationery, crowned by a 1927 1-shilling Telegram Form with matching pad cover.
