Highlights from our 4295 auction include:

  • The Stamps of Cyprus: From those early stamps of Great Britain overprinted "Cyprus", the elegant issues of the Kings periods, the upheavals of 1974 and the beautiful modern pictorial sets Cyprus stamps are perenial favourites of Commonwealth collecting.
  • Egypt "Modern" Imperforate Stamps: Of course 'modern' is a relative term! Sometimes the most difficult stamps to find in your collection can be the unusual items issued perhaps during your own lifetime… we are delighted to offer a great collection of these as a series of lots.
  • German Occupation Stamps: The greatest upheaval of the 20th Century saw fascinating stamps issued by occupying forces, they tell the story of vast movements of people and of battles, of soldier- stamp collectors and stamps issued under fire, of brutal repression and clever designs and momentous history.
  • United States Stamps & Proofs: The early stamps of America are notoriously difficult to find in superb condition, so what better way to add colour and quality to your stamp collection than add a few proofs? We have some lovely plate number blocks and other gems too!

Plus thousands of smaller singles/sets (great for buyers seeking to fill gaps in their collections or find that elusive single stamp!). Hundreds of Commonwealth lots, Great Britain lots, European lots etc.
