6th March Philatelic Auction Report

8th March 2024

Although the weather here has been dreary, our latest philatelic auction was positively thrilling, with strong bidding throughout from across the country and beyond.


The auction started strong with our miscellaneous world collections achieving excellent prices. The highlight of which being lot 18, a lot in 3 large Kalamazoo albums including good British Commonwealth collections and world ranges. Estimated originally at £800, it eventually sold for £3,600!


The individual British Commonwealth lots continued the trend with lot 101, a very fine used and fresh 1933 Falkland Islands Centenary set, rarely seen especially in such excellent condition. After a flurry of bids, the spectacular set sold for an impressive £2,000. It was the Falkland Islands again that gave us another standout, lot 102, another 1933 Centenary issue. This time it was the scarce black and yellow-orange 5/-. A very fine used and scarce shade which eventually sold for a fantastic £1,300.


The remainder of the sale sold well which included a very good selection of France. One of the better collections was lot 131, a large accumulation of postal history with various covers and cards in 6 albums and loose. Estimated at £1,000, there was much interest in the lot and after some healthy bidding sold for £3,100 – over three times the original estimate!


Great Britain was ever popular with miscellaneous lots selling well as well as Queen Victoria. This sale boasted a fabulous and highly specialised collection of the Four Kings with scarce shades and high values throughout, which attracted much interest!  


Another successful and exciting sale for us here at Warwick and Warwick and we wish you all the best in our next sale at 10am on 6th March, live on easyliveauction.com. For sale updates and sneak previews, please follow our TwitterFacebook and Instagram pages.
