Auktionshaus Ulrich Felzmann GmbH & Co. KG Sale - 162

Worldwide Public Auction - July 3-7, 2018

The stamp auction will begin with more than a thousand international airmail and Zeppelin mail lots from the winding-up of prominent British philatelist Ian Nutley’s extraordinary collection, which – together with material from other passionate collectors – gives extensive insight into international airmail history. The auction includes a unique piece of Greenlandic philately in the form of a cover addressed to Zoltan J. Kegl with a Rockwell Kent airmail stamp from 1932 in exceptionally good condition (Lot 3003) and one of only 15 known “Crociera Aerea del Decennale” Balbo covers, which was flown from Benghazi via Rome and Amsterdam back to Rome (Lot 3057).

Equally rare and impressive material from Europe includes an Austrian 3 Kr block of six, described by Austria doyen Dr. Ulrich Ferchenbauer as a “magnificent specimen in pristine condition” (Lot 5277).

Select rarities are also the order of the day in the Old German States section, such as a “rare and originally 33-kreutzer colourful franking”, as Stegmüller describes the top piece of the 30 Kr maximum value in mixed franking on a letter from Baden (Lot 5485), a highlight with undiminishing colouring. From Saxony comes a well-known prime specimen of one of the best known stamps from the Old German States, a “Sachsendreier” in bright red carmine with a characteristic cliché defect “lower frame line interrupted in the middle” (Lot 5713).

Enthusiasts of North German philately will appreciate the Schleswig-Holstein 2 S pink with perfect margin and part of the adjacent stamp. There is also plenty to discover in the area of German Post Offices Abroad and Colonies, such as China’s 40-pfennig Germania with handstamp impression (TIENTSIN 27/1 01) on a small luxury cut square (Lot 6074).

The highlight of the single lots is the famous Audrey Hepburn charity stamp, which was auctioned here in 2006 and is now to go under the hammer again. Featuring a round cancel “BRIEFZENTRUM 12 14.10.03” on a section of envelope, the stamp is one of the few specimens that have actually gone through the postal system and, owing to its rarity, has received widespread television, print and radio coverage well beyond the philatelic scene (Lot 6840).

July 3 Lots 1-1545
