Despite the small quantity of lots (470), there are many noteworthy or peculiar “pieces”. Most of them belong to the Old Italian States section. Some featured areas:
Duchy of Modena: one letter fragment (lot 65) franked with c.40 carmine of Sardinia with grid cancellation with boxed “Zocca” alongside, both in green azure. It is a really rare evidence of c.40 cancelled in Zocca with this kind
of cancellation: the grid postmark was used, in Modena post office, only from 26.6.1852 to 13.7.1852; it was substituted by another type since it cancelled the postage stamps too lightly. When the post office in Zocca was opened (1.1.1859), besides
the nominal postmark and that for registered letters, they received the grid one; in Modena they always used black ink, while in Zocca the few impressions known are in green azure.
Naples: during Farini Regency period, one really fresh and well preserved pair (lot 76) of t.1/2 deep blue “Crocetta” with line cancellation “Annullato” (introduced in February 1861). In the pair, the first example is with wavy
lines watermark, while the second one is without watermark and it has one margin short at top on the right. The printed matter wrapper (lot 95) from Naples to Durham (Great Britain) of 14.2.1862 is franked up to destination for a first postage rate
with Naples Provinces gr.1/2 greyish brown + gr.2 blue. The small circle cancellation “Napoli al Porto 14 Feb. 62” has a “P.D.” alongside. On arrival, the first address was crossed out and it was forwarded to York with p.1 red (perforated 14)
cancelled with Sunderland numeral “761”. It is a really rare combination.
Provisional Government of Parma: with c.80 olive bistre (lot 104) with a quite invisible hinge.
Papal State: b.50 blue (lot 109) and b.50 dark ultramarine (lot 110) (print of 1864 defective because of cliché rust), both unused with original gum with hinge; c.3/1868 rose grey (lot 130), unused with original gum without
Sardinia: c.40 lilac rose of the IV issue (lot 170) with invisible trace of hinge.
Sicily: gr.1 I plate I state paper of Naples rust brown (lot 199), unused without gum, with retouch n.R14, and gr.50 lake brown (position 52) (lot 211) with good margins and with part of the lower example with double impression
really evident (pos.62); the horse-shoe cancellation is well centred.
Tuscany: cr.60 deep scarlet on greyish paper (lot 224), with 3 very good margins and 1 perfect at top, with light cancellation “P.D.” It is in very good condition and freshness.
Foreign countries: an example is the letter (lot 401) from San Marino to Faenza with Sardinia c.5 green + c.10 bistre with boxed cancellation “S.Marino” + small circle “Rimini 10 Set. 63” repeated alongside, and, on the back,
“Faenza 10 Set. 63” on arrival.
About the other categories, in the Kingdom of Italy there is a section devoted to Florence as a capital city, and then R.S.I. and Regency, the Italian Republic,...
A “smart” auction, only by mail and LIVE, therefore without being present in the room, and with a limited number of lots (470), thus “smart” in every sense. This type of auction, presented in catalogue no.99, is new for Vaccari, in the continuous
goal of combining innovation and tradition.
Two points have remained steady and they are quite important to decide one’s own bid:
at Vaccari auctions no commission is applied to buyers’ return prices (generally 20/22%);
the lots with Paolo Vaccari initials or signature, regardless of whether they come with or without an expert certificate, are absolutely guaranteed with reference to their description and, among them, those with a value higher than 500.00 euro
come with a Vaccari S.r.l. certificate of guarantee free of charge.
Closing date: by mail 12th November at 5 p.m. (local time) - live 13th November starting at 3 p.m. (local time)
