Leski Auctions Sale - 445

Australian and Foreign Stamps, Coins and Postal History - August 28, 2019

This is our first sale in this category since last December and it is the first one reflecting the very substantial contributions of our new team member, Matt Hancock. After years of working exclusively in stamps and postal history, Matt joined us a couple of months ago, wanting to expand his exposure to and knowledge of the many types of collectables that pass through our doors. As you will see from this catalogue, he’s been busy with the many consignments we have received in recent months so, while we are working towards our next Stamp & Coin auction, we look forward to including him in other projects.

The current catalogue is comprised of consignments from over 60 vendors. It includes a substantial group of Australian Commonwealth collections (Lots 90-123), a lovely pair of “Spitfire” War Savings Stamps Imprint blocks (Lots 135-6), a superb pair of First Watermark 5/- Kangaroos with a complete CTO strike (Lot 147), a 6d Blue Roo on a 1917 cover to General Birdwood (Lot 157), a KGV 1d Green with a complete OFFSET on the gum (Lot 200), a KGV Large Multi ½d CA-CA Monogram block of 24 (Lot 213), a KGV 2d RED NO WATERMARK error block of 4, ex Arthur Gray (Lot 225), a KGV 1d Red Perkins Bacon Die Proof, also ex Arthur Gray (Lot 236), the UNIQUE 1931 Kingsford Smith Imperforate Die Proofs (Lot 249), the remarkable 1/- Lyrebird marginal block of 4 with a wide blank band at base (Lot 262). Lots 275, 276 and 277 are superb and rare KGVI definitive Die Proofs and you will find a very substantial range of Decimal period accumulations (Lots 291 – 323) with plenty of postage!

For Booklet rarity collectors, the 1911 Victorian issue (Lot 357) is a beauty and for Tasmanian Postal History collectors we have some nice early strikes (Lots 466 – 483) followed by several attractive Victorian half-lengths (Lots 486 – 492). We have placed the large WORLD COLLECTIONS & ACCUMULATIONS section (Lots 527 – 593) at the beginning of the Rest-of-the-World listings and we suggest you allow plenty of time for viewing; some of the lots are quite large and disorganized! These are followed by individual country selections including CHINA (Lots 609 – 631), Great Britain (Lots 666 – 692), Israel (Lots 702 – 710), New Zealand (Lots 752 – 768), a wonderful 1830s-40s piece of NORFOLK ISLAND Convict History (Lot 769) and a beautiful range of Papua New Guinea material (Lots 777 – 791) featuring a selection of UNIQUE Bird and Animal Proof material.

We look forward to seeing you during the viewing and hope to see many of you participating during the auction – in the room, by mail, by phone, on our website or via an agent.
