Robert A. Siegel Auction Galleries, Inc. - The Barry P. Fletcher Collection of Colombian Air Post Issues - November 14, 2017 Assembled by Barry P. Fletcher carefully over the course of many years, his collection of the Air Post issues of Colombia is one of the most comprehensive ever to appear on the auction market. It is replete with iconic rarities, many of which formed the cornerstones of such famous collections as Peinado, Gebauer, Goeggel, Johnson, among many others -- several of which are unique or with few known to exist. Mr. Fletcher also authored an exceptional book: “A Collectors Notes and Comments on the Rare and Mysterious Colombian Airmails, 1919-1923” which accurately details the true scarcity of stamps and covers from this fascinating period of aviation history in South America. Early Colombian air post stamps -- and their corresponding usage on flight covers -- are among the most “classic”, and beautiful, of any issued throughout the world.

Robert A. Siegel Auction Galleries, Inc. - The Dr. Paul M. Cere Collection of Semi-Official Air Posts of Canada - November 14, 2017 The Air Post Semi-Official stamps of Canada, 1918-1934, are among the most popular, and elusive, stamps issued by any entity in the early pioneer aviation years. This collecting area provides intellectual challenges, with the vast array of issues produced by private companies and Aero clubs to frank mail carried on the early private flights throughout Canada.

It is exactly these challenges that attracted Dr. Paul M. Cere to assemble what is likely one of the finest and most important collections – both stamps and their usage on cover – ever formed. Dr. Cere concentrated his efforts on buying scarce and rare items, including listed and unlisted varieties. He would often buy more than one example of a rarity, simply because he knew another might not come along for decades. Many of the most elusive stamps and covers in the Cere collection were acquired from such famous collections as those formed by Mac Goldberg, Ernie Wall and Robert Cunliffe. He was particularly fond of the stamps of Patricia Airways and Exploration Company, with these overprinted stamps providing numerous combinations of errors and varieties.

December, 2017

Auction Galleries Hamburg vormals Schwanke GmbH - Worldwide Public Auction - December 1-2, 2017 Welcome to our 6th International Auction offering more than 4400 lots of which are nearly 1500 collections and lots. . We specialize in the field of German and International postal history, classic collectables and - outstanding in Germany - philatelic literature. Some Highlighted Areas:

  • Russia: A very specialized collection of Russia and Soviet Union forms one of the highlights of our 6th auction. The collection is split up into several single lots. Let us have a look on some of the most important items.
    • The first souvenir sheet of the Soviet Union appeared in 1937 to honor the poet Puschkin. Only 3.000 were made on ordinary paper. The item offered here comes in unmounted mint condition.
    • Another very scarce souvenir sheet is the 1949 "Lenin mausoleum“ sheet which was issued in a perforated and in an imperforate version.
    • Imperforate version of the 1930 Zeppelin issue. The set offered comes in unmounted mint condition.
    • Russian Far East Territories overprints.
    • Special overprint on the regular Isvestija commemorative stamp. As the addressee had moved the letter was re-addressed which is documented by several cancellations and thus we have in our hands an item "full of character“.
  • Europe
    • A very fine cover bearing GREAT BRITAIN 1856 6d embossed goes to the isle of Mallorca
    • A letter from Copenhagen to England of 1863 bears a 4-colour franking of DENMARK`s "square“ issue.
    • The classic items of SWITZERLAND are popular and there are a couple of items on offer including a Dove of Bale or a 4 Rappen of Zurich. A very curious item is the depicted 4 Rappen essay. It is a so-called "Essay of Esslingen“ without year. These early proofs are described in the Handbook of Swiss Cantonal Stamps and they are very scarce.
    • Also to mention are the official stamps of 1918. These were ordinary Swiss definitives overprinted "Industrielle Kriegswirtschaft“ (= Industrial War Economy). These overprinted stamps are seldom found on commercial mail. The printed matter shown here bears the 7 ½ Rp. stamp (Mi.No. 3I) the quality of which meets even raised demands.
  • Overseas
    • Starting with ASIA there is a fine selection of Peoples` Republic of China on offer among which "Mao`s thesis“, "Youth Souvenir sheet“ or the "Red Monkey“ can be mentioned.
    • AFRICA – here are some nice items of the Cape region, e.g. a block of seven of the TRANSVAAL 1 Sh. green showing a tête-bêche pair fine used.
    • part perforate copy of the 9d green SOUTH AFRICAN 1925 air mail stamp on a registered letter from Durban.
    • COLUMBIA`s first air mail stamp of 1919 comes on a letter and it is in a remarkably fine condition.
    • Nice classic stamps can be found from several countries, such as from Bolivia, Mexico, Columbia or Venezuela.
    • GERMANY and German area is strong as usual. Apart from rarities and a well sorted offer of the so-called standard material there are the "little things“ which should attract the reader`s attention
    • ”This is the way you can collect the first issue of the German Reich....” The piece shown here bears the rarest stamp of the first issue, a 2 Kr large shield, attractively cancelled and in pristine condition.
    • There is for example a "chair“-franking of a 3 Kr. narrow perforation of BADEN. It is really difficult to separate these stamps from the sheet – due to the thin paper and the very sensitive perforation – and to separate a block of three must have meant a real challenge for the post office man. However, this blocks comes in perfect condition. Alongside you can see one of the most appealing pieces in existence with a 6 Kr. brown first type of BAVARIA. With large margins all around originating from the sheet margin and bearing a clear and attractive cancellation this piece meets highest demands.
    • A small selection.
