The Country Manor Collectionof High Grade U.S. Stamps and exceptional Postal Stationery - October 8-9, 2021
In our Auction #362, we present "The Country Manor" collection of high grade United States stamps and exceptional Postal Stationery, formed by the late Gary L. Kurtz. Mr. Kurtz amassed much of his holding prior to the year 2000, and long before the advent of grading by expertizing bodies. It is a tribute to his unerring eye that the large majority of the more than 200 items we submitted for expertizing were awarded grades of 90, 95 and higher. In fact, Gary Kurtz’s collection now features several examples with a brand new "highest grade extant". You will also find many of the stamps and postal stationery offered here have not been on the market for 20-50 years, so you may now be seeing a lot of items for the first time.

The Indica Collection of India Telegraphs - September 28, 2021
The ‘Indica’ collection of Telegraphs represents a lifetime's work, with a wealth of unique essays, proofs and archive material that has never appeared on the open market, alongside the most complete collection of mint and used telegraph issues ever formed. Much of the material was purchased in the 1960s directly from Robson Lowe, who handled the disposal of the De La Rue archive, meaning the auction represents the first time this wonderful material, and even some highly important early correspondence will appear on the market for the first time.
The highlight and cover star is the iconic set of first issue Electric Telegraphs in mint condition, one of only a handful recorded, a true showpiece of Indian philately, and runs all the way through to modern Telegraphic usages, with every rarity (both listed and unlisted!) represented within the collection. An opportunity not to be missed!
