H.R. Harmer GPN, Inc. Sale - 3070

The 'Erivan' Collection of United and Confederate States Part X - April 30, 2024

“Everything has to come to an end, sometime.” So said L. Frank Baum in The Marvelous Land of Oz, echoing the sentiment first expressed by medieval poet Geoffrey Chaucer. And so it is with the Erivan Collection; with this, the tenth sale, the final chapter of one of the most extraordinary collections of the stamps and postal history of the United States will be written.

Those of you who have followed these sales since the inaugural auction in 2019 will be familiar with the common theme of storytelling that has weaved its way through the catalogues. Through some of the most renowned pieces of United States philately – from the Alexandria “Blue Boy” to the famed Pony Express cover to Abraham Lincoln – Erivan Haub shared the stories of a country he loved. Now, comes the final opportunity for collectors to continue the story of these exceptional artifacts, many of which have, at one time or another, graced the most famed collections of the twentieth century, from Ferrary and Burrus, to Dale-Lichtenstein and Boker.

Several of the most coveted rarities of the Erivan Collection are offered in this catalogue, many of which have not been seen on the market in decades. These iconic pieces, reflecting a range of collecting interests including Carriers and Locals, the Pony Express, Confederate States, Hawaii, and more, are offered here alongside missed opportunities from prior sales and a powerful selection of balance lots. Together they provide a once-in-a-generation opportunity for collectors to acquire long-awaited gems before they yet again disappear from the market.

The story of the Erivan Collection has been an opportunity to share the story of philately, through over thirty auctions, in five countries, on both sides of the Atlantic. Social media, radio, television, and local and national print media on multiple continents helped promote the enthusiasm and passion for our hobby that Erivan Haub represented.

With this sale, the last of the United States treasures of the Erivan Collection will find appreciative homes with new collectors. For all of us at the Global Philatelic Network, it has been an honor to share this collection with the world.
We wish you success with your bids.
