Spink is delighted to
have rounded off our year of stamp sales with such a successful
auction. Today over 1300 lots of Great Britain Stamps and Postal
History went under the hammer in London, from perforated issues and
important blocks to fascinating forgeries and rare errors.
Especially popular was the Great Britain 1867-80 2/- brown,
QK-QL, imperforate horizontal pair, lot 796, which sold for sold
include Lot 502, a famous cover and a unique usage of the 1840 Two
Pence Blue, on an entire letter from Funchal, Madeira, dated 1840.
It is addressed to Devonshire and cancelled by a Deal Ship Letter
postmark. Today at Spink it went for an impressive £19,200.
Among the highlights of the latter part of the sale was Lot
1169, an extremely rare Office of Works - 10d. dull purple and
carmine, large part original gum, which fetched £18,000.
