The Wyer Collection is, without a doubt, the finest assemblage of French
Colonies offered at public auction in recent memory. Over fifty years in
the making, this incredibly comprehensive collection includes stamps and
some covers from all of the French Colonies, as well as French Offices
abroad. Additionally, French Colonies that once were occupied by the
British or Germans (i.e. Cameroun and Togo) are also well represented.
Replete with rarities, errors and outstanding varieties which are almost
never seen on the auction market, the overall quality of the Wyer
Collection is remarkably high, and virtually all important stamps have been
expertized by recognized experts.
As with all Spink USA auctions, bidders may participate in the auction –
live on the Internet – during the sale. Please see our website for details
of this exciting bidding option.
All color printed catalogs for The Rolfe E. Wyer Collection of French
Colonies are available for $20.00 ($30.00 for an overseas address) by
