Robert A. Siegel Auction Galleries, Inc. - The Barry P. Fletcher Collection of Colombian Air Post Issues - November 14, 2017 Assembled by Barry P. Fletcher carefully over the course of many years, his collection of the Air Post issues of Colombia is one of the most comprehensive ever to appear on the auction market. It is replete with iconic rarities, many of which formed the cornerstones of such famous collections as Peinado, Gebauer, Goeggel, Johnson, among many others -- several of which are unique or with few known to exist. Mr. Fletcher also authored an exceptional book: “A Collectors Notes and Comments on the Rare and Mysterious Colombian Airmails, 1919-1923” which accurately details the true scarcity of stamps and covers from this fascinating period of aviation history in South America. Early Colombian air post stamps -- and their corresponding usage on flight covers -- are among the most “classic”, and beautiful, of any issued throughout the world.

Robert A. Siegel Auction Galleries, Inc. - The Dr. Paul M. Cere Collection of Semi-Official Air Posts of Canada - November 14, 2017 The Air Post Semi-Official stamps of Canada, 1918-1934, are among the most popular, and elusive, stamps issued by any entity in the early pioneer aviation years. This collecting area provides intellectual challenges, with the vast array of issues produced by private companies and Aero clubs to frank mail carried on the early private flights throughout Canada.

It is exactly these challenges that attracted Dr. Paul M. Cere to assemble what is likely one of the finest and most important collections – both stamps and their usage on cover – ever formed. Dr. Cere concentrated his efforts on buying scarce and rare items, including listed and unlisted varieties. He would often buy more than one example of a rarity, simply because he knew another might not come along for decades. Many of the most elusive stamps and covers in the Cere collection were acquired from such famous collections as those formed by Mac Goldberg, Ernie Wall and Robert Cunliffe. He was particularly fond of the stamps of Patricia Airways and Exploration Company, with these overprinted stamps providing numerous combinations of errors and varieties.
