This sale will feature the U.S. Revenue collection of John "Jay" Lewis. It
is one of the most extensive U.S. Revenue collections we have ever offered.
The collection consists of a very strong section of First Issue revenues
including multiples, varieties and a significant showing of cancels. There
are several balance lots of revenues included in this sale along with the
acclaimed John "Jay" Lewis collection of Pacific Mail Steamship Cancels.
This very important collection of revenues will have something for every
U.S. Revenue collector.
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
Michael E. Aldrich Auction listing in the index and register as a
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.
As always, viewing will be available for the entire auction for the two
weeks prior to the closing date of the sale at our offices in Carefree, AZ.
All lots in our Michael E. Aldrich auctions are scanned and available on
both our website and SAN.
