The holding of Greece Large Hermes Heads was acquired around 1980-81
largely from the well-known collector, dealer and expert Peter Holcombe of
Lugano, Switzerland. We have left the stamps on his original sales cards
which are showing his notes and identification of the issues. In addition
we sent some of the better items to be examined to Paris-based expert
Pascal Scheller. He made notes on the photocopies of the sales cards that
accompanied the stamps we sent to him. These signed copies are included
with each stamp he has examined. In essence these become short certificates
of authenticity. This is a little treasure trove of Large Hermes Heads that
have not been on the market for nearly 40 years.
The Newfoundland offering is largely from an old-time collection formed in
the 1970s-80s with much of the material acquired thru Robson Lowe sales.
There are neat little varieties and attractive well-centered singles
throughout the sale. The highlight is of course the 3c 1919 Hawker Airpost
