Wednesday 5th June Philatelic Auction Report

6th June 2024

A valuable and varied sale for us here at Warwick and Warwick with hammer prices ranging in tens of pounds to over ten thousand pounds!

The miscellaneous world collections started off the sale as usual, with many lots achieving well above estimate. For example, lot 10, a large early to modern world collection in 9 albums with a good selection of early and high value British Commonwealth issues, sold for over three times estimate at £1950.  


Our individual British Commonwealth lots did similarly well, especially lot 116. A Malaya and States collection in a number of stockbooks and loose with an interesting range of early Indian issues used in Malaya. Originally estimated at £270, after a steady stream of bids, lot 116 sold for £2,700 – ten times the original estimate.


Great Britain exceeded all expectations with the vast majority of lots from Queen Victoria to Queen Elizabeth II selling and selling well. Tied for the top spot were sale highlights lots 211 and 221, both specialised collections of shades from King Edward VII and King George V respectively. Both eventually sold after a flurry of bids for vast sums, lot 211 a remarkable £12,500 and lot 221 an even more impressive £13,500!


A fantastic sale for us here at Warwick and Warwick and hopefully similarly so for all other interested parties!
