Paradise Valley Stamp Company Sale - C114

French Colonies Auction #C114 - No Buyer's Premium - September 22, 2017

We are pleased to present a single owner collection of French Colonies which came to us in eight volumes. The contents of the first six albums are included in this sale, the contents of the remaining two will be offered in our next French Colonies sale.

This sale features French Offices Abroad incl. e.g China, Egypt and Levant as well as French Colonies General Issues. French North Africa includes Algeria, French Morocco and Tunisia. The Middle East with e.g. Grand Liban and Syria. French Africa with Nossi Be, Madagascar, Diego Suarez, Benin, Ivory Coast, Somali Coast and Obock. French Asia incl. Indo-China and French India.

Some of the key issues in this sales include Gabon #4 & #8 both mint and signed Scheller, Gabon #10 used signed Scheller, Benin #18 mint signed Brun & Scheller, from Ivory Coast the rare #Q3 & #Q4 mint, both signed Scheller, Somali Coast #5 mint signed by both Brun & Scheller, Mongtseu #32a mint, inverted Chinese characters, signed Scheller, Ile Rouad first set mint, signed Scheller and a number of other issues rarely seen on the market.

Virtually all better stamps in the sale have expert markings or old French dealer markings on the back. Any stamp signed by Pascal Scheller, Paris have been directly submitted by us. If the buyer wishes to obtain a certificate for any of these stamps, or any other stamp in the sale, we are able to obtain these at cost from Mr. Scheller.

Throughout the sale we have used the Scott catalogs as well as the Maury catalogs. Maury in most cases provides more detailed listing than any other current catalog for French Colonies. It is our understanding that the current publisher of the five volumes of French Colonies Maury catalogs has no plans to publish any updated versions currently. We have been able to acquire a small stock of the last available catalogs, which we plan to offer for sale on our website in the near future, in addition to the annually published Maury France catalog.

We understand if some collectors will find this sale a temptation to go beyond their normal stamp budget. If that is the case, we will be able to offer extended payment terms. Please contact Tor Bjork for more information.

Again, it is with great pleasure we are bringing this comprehensive French Colonies collection to the market. We hope you will enjoy perusing the lots, as much as we enjoyed putting the sale together.

This sale closes on Friday, September 22, 2017 at 1:00 pm EDT.
