Stanley Gibbons Sale - 5919

Stamps and Postal History of the World - October 6-7, 2020

In our October sale we have on offer a great offering of the quality material that you would expect to see from a Stanley Gibbons auction. Huge strength in classic GB is clear from going through the catalogue. A favourite is the very fine used GB 1902 5d Board of Education Official, quite something to behold.

The star of the show has to be the 1854 Penang to Mauritius cover which graces the cover of this catalogue and can be found under lot 1263. This is arguably the most important item that we have handled in many years and has already caused something of a stir in certain circles. We are proud to be entrusted with handling this philatelically and historically significant item and I look forward to some enthusiastic bidding as this goes under the hammer.
