Spink London Sale - 2201

The 'Lionheart' Collection of New Zealand - Part I - January 26, 2022

This collection comes with excellent pedigree; the majority of lots in the sale have come from the superb collections formed by the likes of Sir Gawaine Baillie, Joseph Hackmey and Major Henry Dumas alongside other award-winning collections of New Zealand such as “Chalon” and “Pegasus”.

The sale begins, fittingly with the incredibly scarce 1d. dull carmine-red printed by Perkins Bacon and we are proud to offer both a mint example and several used examples including the unique used vertical pair (Ex. Patterson), other notable lots include examples of the 1855 London Printings 2d. dull blue and 1/- yellow-green, the 1855 J. Richardson 1d. orange, a superb mint example of the 1857-63 1/- dull emerald-green as well as a range of scarce multiples and attractive covers.

All other printings of the Chalon design are included covering a very wide spectrum, giving everyone from the seasoned Chalon specialist to the budding collector a wonderful opportunity to participate in what is sure to be a popular and exciting auction.
