Robert A. Siegel Auction Galleries, Inc. Sale - 957

The Islander Collection of South America - June 5-6, 2008

The classic stamps of South America have fascinated collectors since philately's earliest days. In June 2008, Siegel Auction Galleries will present the legendary Islander collection, comprising the rarest and most outstanding stamps from five of the philatelically most significant South American countries: Brazil, Buenos Aires, Chile, Colombia and Peru. Each country is represented in the sale by its most outstanding philatelic rarity, as well as an array of rare stamps, blocks and covers.

From Brazil we have the legendary "Pack Strip", a unique se-tenant multiple comprising the 30 and 60-reis values from the second composite plate used to print the 1843 Bull's Eye issue. The Buenos Aires Barquitos issue provides the remarkable "In Peso" tête-bêche pair, which experts consider to be the only surviving tête-bêche multiple of the issue. For the first time ever, the auction market will have an opportunity to bid on the famous cover bearing the Chile 1854 5-centavos Lithograph block of fourteen, which was acquired by the collector privately more than forty years ago. The first day cover of Colombia's first issue is the only First Issue First Day Cover from any country in the Americas, including Canada and the United States. Finally, Peru offers two equally worthy candidates for the top-rated position: the ex-Weinberger block containing the Medio Peso Rose Red se-tenant error, and the spectacular combination cover with the Medio Peso Rose Red error and a pair of the One Dinero Blue first issue.

These outstanding items have been shown in Court of Honor and Aristocrats of Philately displays in major international exhibitions for decades, but they rarely appear at auction, and never before have all of them been gathered in one collection at one time. The entire sale is destined to be heralded as one of the most important philatelic auctions of all time.
