A phenomenal holding of archival and other material, the product of a lifetime’s collecting, with dozens of items including proofs, stamps and postal history. Beginning with a series of 'Gilbert &, Ellice Protectorate' EDVII issues on piece and on cover, inc unusual large special cancels in violet of Butaritari Island and the Union Group, then the Pandanus Pine issues inc. specimen o/ps. followed by a range of mint multiples of KGV all never hinged showing plate numbers in the margins inc. 2 1/2d ultra block of six showing plate 1, the 3d purple on yellow block of four showing plate six, and the 5d and 1/- in corner blocks from plate one. , However the best is the KGV proof material including a wonderful series of die proofs of the colony name and different duty plates from 1911 and 1912, starting with the 3d with no other markings, then the 4d marked '3.May.12-After Hardening', the 1/- with '28.DEC.11-Before Hardening', the 2/- with '3.May.12-After Hardening', the 2/6d with '17.May.12-After Hardening' and another 2/6d marked '7.May.12-After Hardening' with 'after' crossed through and 'before' added in manuscript! Similarly the 5/- (7.May.12) with the 'after' changed to 'before'. , Then there is a KGV key plate proof without denomination or colony name, affixed to card with 'Sept ,20th ,– 120 Leads' written in pen and 'no. 11' added in pencil and very rare as such. This is very desirable material, leading on to 1935 ,Silver Jubilees as well as a special presentation booklet for the UPU of 1947 containing KGVI , definitives. ,Many items here would make an individual lot in its own right, yet we have been asked to offer this intact as received – with no individual items taken out - so that the buyer may build on this to international exhibition status. A great opportunity for a dealer or collector of this BC Pacific Island group.

A remarkable collection of the overprint settings, housed in 3 Linder albums with diagrams on every page. This specifically studies the different settings of the 1922 Waterlow printings, known as 'London II' from position 1 to position 240, in the sheet, often including mint blocks as well superb used. Occasionally there are attractive plate numbers singles from the sheets. We estimate there are on average 20 stamps per position, i.e. approx 5000 stamps, ranging from the perf 14 1m brown to the 20piastres bright violet (SG#71 - SG#84), as well as the perf 15 x 14 from the 5 piastres again to the 20 piastres (SG#86 - SG#89). There are numerous errors of o/ps such as the doubling of letters, lengthening and shortening of serifs, broken letters, missing accents, added characters to name but a few of the permutations present, on all 3 alphabets. There are many scarce stamps present, for example on books 2 and 3 we notice there are at least ,ten 9 piastres ochre used, SG#82b (cat. £200 each), over 2 dozen 10 piastres, light blue mint SG#83 (cat. £70 each), as well as the 20 piastres bright violet mint SG#84 (cat. £170 each) and also the 20 piastres used with at least 17 SG#84 (cat. £110 each) etc. Certainly on the 60 stamps we have now identified, just in those albums there is alone about £7000 cat. and on the other 4700+ stamps remaining, we estimate at least £5000 per album, i.e. £15.000+ cat, probably £25,000+ overall, without considering any of the varieties. A highly recommended viewing, collection is clearly of exhibition standard, well written-up. There is the distinct probability of many watermark varieties to be found and other varieties that were not part of this study of settings. A lifetime's work and a tremendous opportunity for the specialist, dealer or collector.  ,

Highly specialised collection, written up in pen on vintage Heimdal quadrille pages, starting off with the 1pi blue rouletted issues, then the first London printings including a very scarce first day cover of 16th June 1918, bearing the 3m, 4m (wing margin), 5m and 5 piaster mandate definitives (wing margin), with 'GMI' registration label, sent to Switzerland. Then follows an in-depth study of the 'Palestine' overprints identified by perfs, as well as constant plate varieties which are shown in pen illustrations by the collector, then the OPDA surcharges with the '1/2 m-m' on 2m green and '1/2 Mill.' on 4m red, both used. We could not find any reference to these and we believe they are very good. This is an opportunity to acquire a collector's collection of this challenging area including material that is hardly ever seen on the market today.
