The August 2011 Collector's Series Sale - August 19-20, 2011

Spink Shreves announces another popular Collector’s Series Sale – which are always anticipated by collectors and dealers alike for the variety and desirability of the material being offered. Our upcoming August 2011 Collector’s Series Sale is a perfect example of an auction that will excite collectors and dealers of both U.S. and foreign material. Also included, are our popular Worldwide Large Lots & Collections. Spink Shreves August 2011 Collector’s Series Sale features:
  • The Estate of Raymond L. “Pat” Buse, Jr. A voluminous collection containing mint never hinged stamps of the world – formed by the popular former Cincinnati Bengals and Cincinnati Reds owner. In addition, the Buse collection contains postal history of Cincinnati, Ohio.
  • A Private Collector’s Assemblage of Early 20th Century U.S. Errors. A most impressive offering of errors from the Washington-Franklin era to the 1934 National Parks and 1938 Presidential series. Many of the errors are in the finest condition attainable.
  • The Frank L. Himpsl Collection of U.S. Revenues. The Himpsl Collection is an exciting and valuable collection of predominately 19th Century U.S. Revenues, with particular emphasis on Private Die Proprietary stamps. In fact, the Himpsl Match, Medicine, Perfumery and Playing Card stamp collection is one of the finest of its kind to appear at auction in many years – and it is highlighted by many seldom offered rarities.
  • The Christopher C. Smith Collection of Classic India A very comprehensive collection of the 1854 Lithographed issue and 1855-1902 Queen Victoria De La Rue issues offered in over 100 lots. The collection includes not only virtually all the mint or used stamps, but is also replete with postal history, as he attempted to assemble as many different rates, routes and franking combinations as possible for all these 19th Century issues. Also noteworthy is a remarkable collection of the classic cancellations of India, which is being offered intact.
