This is certainly a good time to sell stamps as our February sale surpassed all previous auctions with over £410,000 worth of lots sold.

China continues to be highly prized with a large collection including Large Dragons and Red Revenues finally fetching £36,000 (estimate £20,000).

The strong demand for early unmounted mint stamps was demonstrated again as we sold a group of Hong Kong high values from 1904-06 issue selling for almost £2100 (estimate £1000). Also a St. Helena 1922-37 15 shillings from the popular 'Badge' issue, again unmounted mint, sold for £813 (estimate £500). In our opinion this demand for unmounted should really be addressed by Stanley Gibbons adding a third price column in their catalogues as many other catalogue publishers do.

Finally a very attractive group of Hong Kong Edwardian Plate Number strips found a new home at £871 (estimate £200) again demonstrating that marginal markings are as important as the stamp itself when determining value.

Our next sale is 4th June 2017. Enquiries on 01376 585357.
