Saudi Arabia
LotNo. Symbol CatNo. Lot Description
2712   imageSaudi Arabia, Highly Specialized Collection, 1916-2013, Following World War I, the Ottoman empire was divided into smaller states within the Middle East. The eastern Hejaz was secured by Hussein bin Ali al-Hashemi (King Ali of the Hashemites). In 1922, the western Nejd was consolidated by Abdulaziz bin Abdul Rahman Al Saud (Ibn Saud of the house of Saud), who later, in 1925, was able to conquer Hejaz and unite Hejaz and Nejd into one kingdom. This collection, through these early Hejaz and Nejd issues, tells the story of the fracturing to unification and then proceeds to tell the story of a unified country under the royal family emerging as the leader of the world's largest energy supplier. Collection is highly complete and starts with a couple early circular seals of Gedda (Jedda), the moves to the early Hejaz issues, with the perforated and various rouletted issues, plus shades and dues of the Sherifate of Mecca issue, proceeds to Kingdom of Hejaz issues of 1921 overprints, along with the two rare surcharged issues, blocks containing missing dates and various inverted overprints, proceeding to the revised block overprints, surcharges and dues, proceeding to the 1922-24 Arms of Sherif of Mecca issues in various shades and even an occasional imperforate, along with the 1923 surcharged and Caliphate issues with a few inverted or with very light gold to produce black appearing overprints.
