This special sale consists of 100 lots of U.S. and Worldwide stamps and
covers where each lot special unto itself. Quality, rarity, specialized or
unusual were the attributes we were looking for when putting together this
sale. There is classic U.S., some interesting Washington-Franklins
including a mint #544. There are rare Postage Dues and Newspapers. A very
strong First Issue Revenue section along with several other Revenue items
from various areas including some "New Discoveries" in the Match & Medicine
section. Two extremely rare Philippines covers and a plethora of better
worldwide singles and sets. Hopefully there is something for everyone in
this benchmark auction sale.
Traditionally the Michael E. Aldrich sales have been auctions which include
mail, phone, fax, walk-up and internet bidding off our own website and
Stamp Auction Network. In addition these sales are held "LIVE" on SAN.
Any bidder who is interested in participating in the live internet auction
process will need to go to www.stampauctionnetwork.com and click on the

prospective internet bidder prior to the closing date of the sale. You will
be given a specific bidder number for that sale. To bid in the sale, a
registered bidder will need to login on the website.
We are excited about the live internet bidding component to our sales. It
is our hope that many of our customers will utilize the live aspect of the
auction for lots that they are interested in.

weeks prior to the closing date of the sale at our offices in Cave Creek,
