Paradise Valley Stamp Company Sale - C124

French Colonies Auction #C124 - No Buyer's Premium - May 22, 2019


This time we had added some attractive collections which appear in the country collections section in the beginning of the sale. In addition we have added a number of lots particularly from Algeria where we received a very specialized of regular issues, well annotated in French describing a number of unlisted plate flaws. Further we have added Cameroun, French Guiana and French Guinea. A rare set of Bristol printings in blocks of four of the Navigation and Commerce issue from Senegal. Of special note in this sale is the comprehensive collection of French Colonies General Issues used in the colonies. Collected during a lifetime with the purpose of acquiring one example of each cancel used on as many different issues as possible. A tall task by any means. Numerous scarce markings/usages are abound. The collection is broken down by colony and just a very few stamps have been removed to be offered by as individual lots. The China and Southeast Asia area is particularly comprehensive with Annam, Tonkin and Cochin China, French Africa incl. French Congo, Gabon, French Guinea, Ivory Coast, Madagascar, further Martinique, Reunion, Guadeloupe, French Guiana, Tahiti and more.

In addition there are a number of attractive and scarce issues from virtually every area. Most of the "country" collections are under the French Colonies Collections heading, but may also appear under each separate colony.

Many of the 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.

For our buyers outside of the the US, we also offer a shipping incentive if purchases exceed $1,000.00 and fits into a USPS medium flat rate box. Shipping can be combined from different sales. Contact us for details.

French Colonies lots will also appear in our regular Box & Country Lot auctions throughout the year. This sale closes on Wednesday, May 22, 2019 1:00 PM EDT.
