Spink Shreves Galleries Sale - 101

The Sovereign Collection - May 13-14, 2008

The "Sovereign" Collection was formed over a period of decades by a meticulous and particularly tenacious American collector. His goal was to obtain as many different mint stamps for most countries of the British Empire. He succeeded admirably as the collection contains innumerable stamps that are almost never seen on the market today - whether they catalog £250 or £50,000. In addition to stamps from the British Empire, the collector also formed valuable collections of stamps from selected European countries, with particular emphasis on Germany and Colonies.

The owner of the "Sovereign" Collection, who wishes to remain anonymous, generously donated his entire collection to the Smithsonian National Postal Museum in Washington, DC, so that its sale at public auction would benefit the outstanding work the Museum provides to philatelists both in the United States and around the world.

There is no question that due to the exceptional variety and extraordinary comprehensiveness of The "Sovereign" Collection, both general collectors and individual country specialists are certain to find an amazing array of scarce stamps in the auction - virtually all of which have been expertized - and all will be offered at unreserved public auction at Spink Shreves New York City auction gallery. Plus, both dealers and collectors alike will be impressed with the valuable individual country collection balances offered throughout the sale.

As with all Spink Shreves auctions, bidders may participate in the auction - live on the internet - during the sale. Please see our website www.SpinkShreves.com for details of this exciting bidding option. All color-catalogs for the Sovereign Collection are available for $20.00 each ($30.00 for non-U.S. addresses). Orders for the catalog may be placed through our website using a credit card, or orders may be placed by phone by calling 800-556-7826 or 972-788-2100.
