SPINK are delighted to announce the sale of The Cottonwood Collection, a magnificent holding of the Rhodesia Double Head Issue, to be sold on June 3rd 2021. Formed over decades by a master of the subject, Robert M. Gibbs, this important offering contains unique and exceptionally important items that will certainly crown even the finest of collections. Highlights:
  • Issued Stamps. Perforated 14. Seven Shillings and Sixpence. RSC "E", Scarlet and (deep bright) blue, Mid Gash printing. [18-24] block of four, variant, scarlet and (paler and brighter) chalky blue, outstanding rich colours and perfect centering, large part original gum with the lower pair remaining unmounted. A great rarity and a beautiful and outstanding multiple. (Lot 346)

A marginal pair, [39-40], from the right of the sheet, variety imperforate, lovely fresh colour and very lightly mounted with the stamps having nearly full original gum, two hinge remainders in margin.
