H.R. Harmer, Inc. - The "Argent" Collection of 1875-1901 Mint United States Stamps - October 20, 2018
The “Argent” Collection of 1875-1901 Mint United States Stamps is limited to only the United States stamp issues of the late 19th century. The owner sought to collect each major listing (and several minor varieties) in as high a quality as possible. The centering, the color, the perforations all had to be top-notch for a stamp to make its way into this remarkable collection. With less than two dozen examples known the Scott 205C is certainly the highlight here, although a unique Scott 197 10c Special Pri
nting with double transfer at the top and bottom should also appeal to those who require the rarest of the rare.

Official stamps and flights. Offeringsfrom the Arctic and Antarctic collections of Peter Barretta Jr. Large Postcard lots, Large U.S. and outstanding country collections and large worldwide lots .
H.R. Harmer, Inc. - The Bert Boonstra Collection of the 1901 Pan-American Exposition - October 26, 2018
The Bert Boonstra Collection of the 1901 Pan-American Exposition is a love-letter to the world’s fair that has captured the imagination of so many in the century-plus since it took place. With an emphasis on exposition cancels, picture postcards, and foreign destinations, the collection abounds with material that is not only scarce but also visually stunning. Amongst the foreign destinations are such far-off places as Gibraltar, Bolivia, and Tunisia. Several cancels being offered are amongst the scarcest
recognized by Bomar. But, regardless of rarity, this catalogue is simply a joy to peruse for its eye-appeal. Mr. Boonstra attempted to not just tell the story of the Pan-American Exposition, but how the events of the fair shaped American history for decades to come.
Paradise Valley Stamp Company - ETHIOPIA - the Edward Rose Collection & Michael Rogers' Air Post - October 29, 2018
Ethiopia - The Exhibition Collection formed by Edward Rose & Ethiopia Air
Post from the Michael Rogers' collection.
We are pleased to offer another great sale of Ethiopian material presenting
the Rose collection of "The First 50 Years of Postal Activity 1868 - 1918."
We quote from the introduction page of the exhibit: "The purpose of this
exhibit is to develop and display the first 50 years of definitive stamps
and postal activity in Ethiopia.
In addition to the Ethiopia collection, the associated exhibit of Eritrea
is offered as one collection.
The Michael Rogers collection of Ethiopia air post is very well
complemented by the air post section from Mr. Rose's collection. There is
very little overlap between the two as one will note when perusing the
lots. This section includes proofs/essays, the well-researched and
presented stamp issues and a large number of early flight covers.
