Great Britain/Empire Postage Stamps 1840-1940
Blackwell Auctions is pleased to offer a retired stamp dealer's personal collection of Great Britain and British Empire postage stamps and sets, 1840-1940. The collection, originally contained in 10 Scott Specialty albums, represents nearly a half century of meticulous collecting - an entire career in philately funneled into this singular interest. The auction includes just over 750 lots, including singles and sets, selected from the collection based on 2018 Scott Catalog value. The average lot has a catalog value of about $475. (Very few lots in the auction have a SCV under $100, and many lots are well into the thousands of dollars.) Whenever practical, photos were taken of the page where stamps were originally placed, along with all penciled notations. Previews by appointment and 10-4 Tues 5/22 and Wed 5/23. Doors open at 10AM Thursday 5/24 and auction begins at noon. Online bidding is available through our new Blackwell Auctions app (Apple or Android), Live Auctioneers and Invaluable. Absentee and phone bidding is available through submitting the form on our website.
