10763Great Britain - Covers - QV1820s-1950s Just how often does an original archive turn up these days? Looking back, I remember being on the periphery of the discovery of the ‘Corsini’ correspondence – even today when such letters turn up they seem to be avidly snapped up. But, all those tales of Solicitor’s cellars and crate-fulls of penny blacks on cover seem to be flights of fancy don’t they. Well, not any longer; I’d say this is the first original archive we’ve seen in thirty years. That’s remarkable, utterly remarkable. Understandably the vendor wished to keep the entire archive intact, preserving it for posterity. Unfortunately (but fortunate for the owner) the discovery of a 4 margin 1d black rare Plate XI on cover within the archive significantly ‘skewed’ the value of the archive increasing the estimate value by 5 figures upward so that the archive ‘intact’ - valued at £20,000+ was sufficient to deter most buyers. The plate XI cover has now been sold - thereby presenting postal historians and historic wine researchers/ wine aficioandos an unique unparalled opportunity to acquire the entire archive (excluding one cover only for which a scan is available) at a much more affordable collector/researcher’s price. This being the archive of Pulling & Co., Wine merchants of Hereford. The archive includes price lists, advertising cards, invoices dating from the 1820s, many 100s – at first we thought probably high hundreds of items housed in three large tubs, but when the team actually waded through we counted an extraordinary approximately 3,400 items of which in the region of half appear to be philatelic with a substantial balance in documents, receipts, invoices, uncancelled letters, and including hundreds of ‘Pulling’s’ own brand bottle labels, cards/marketing material etc. Highlights include 1d black Plate 10 on entire letter (4 margin but aged) from Worcester MY 11 1841 tied black Maltese Cross, close at top right otherwise four margins. There are a few other 1d black covers and a three margin 1840 2d blue on 1843 cover from Dublin, very late usage. Noted are many imperf and perf 1d red covers including much postmark interest, Irish, Spoons, etc. Invoices to Pulling & Co. postmarked from Cognac, France include four 1851-52 covers bearing Ceres imperf 40c orange pairs and three with Ceres imperf 40c orange horiz strips of four, including one 4 margins and unfolded – SG catalogue £600 - £700 each stamp depending upon shade and excluding premium for strips. An original lot, offered completely intact as received and condition variable throughout, but obviously including ‘plum’ items, excellent lot for a wine enthusiast with huge scope for research. Although perhaps not of pecuniary value what I particularly like about this archive is the social history and the fabulous engraved ‘letterheads’ and designs of invoices and receipts redolent of the period. This archive is the only lot offered in this auction which may be personally viewed at our offices, strictly by appointment only. HEAVY LOT - OVERSEAS BIDDERS PLEASE ENQUIRE FOR SHIPPING COSTS US2 £

To put the rarity of this stamp into perspective, the 10c on 30c with Chinese characters similarly with double surcharge has been recorded incl. within a complete mint pane, and a handful of singles (currently priced at £12,000 by SG). ONLY one row in a single pane became doubly printed, and the row comprised a setting of six subjects (incl. the above variety showing 'EN' broken); Moving on to the same stamp issue without Chinese characters which this is, ONLY ONE OTHER EXAMPLE IS KNOWN and unpriced by SG, and to find one with this combination of broken letters is almost certainly unique.

21331General - British Commonwealth SIGNIFICANT British Empire/Commonwealth collection with focus upon New Zealand and territories, plus additional areas Great Britain and Islands, and general British Commonwealth offered intact as received, the product of one collector’s work and over more than 30 years collecting, this is a very substantial collection housed in some 21 boxes including (counted as boxes) a few equivalent sized large carrier bags, also noted collector’s equipment/ paraphernalia/ NZ Campbell Paterson catalogue included. Noted valuable early material (more about this follows), unusually the collection continues right through from early through to relatively recent with expensive New Issues through to 2012 and in some cases through to 2016. We note very substantial value in mint (unmounted) new issues plus FDCs to 2016 in places. Running a few of the collector stated to catalogue (STC) Stanley Gibbons catalogue values we note: New Zealand and Territories STC £63,600, Great Britain and Islands STC c.£19,000, additional material catalogued by SG Stamps of the World (SOTW) including almost exclusively British Commonwealth STC £13,000 includes Faroes at £375 – though for the purposes of auction valuation little real value has been attached to this final part of the collection. In general, the main SG catalogue value of the collection extends to c.£82,500. Addressing the more valuable / classic material we note strength in early NZ (but NOT chalons), with a high degree of completion from circa 1898 in mint onwards to 2012, the majority as per KA-BE hingless album leaves, not according to SG or Campbell Paterson (as we all know collecting NZ for the early periods (and even more modern) can extend into challenging degrees of specialisation, however to more normal collecting interest NZ must be approaching a high degree of completion if one excludes rarities. Supporting this we note most of the better sets with Christchurch, Auckland, defins etc, with ranges of ‘officials’ plus the ever important Postal Fiscals with real value here, all mint including representative (printings unchecked) £2 10 shillings probably unmounted, £3 10 shillings (light bend), £3, £4, £5 – ovpts present excluding 35/- on 35/-, also note a good used (variable perfs) £10 ovpt on £10 postal fiscal unlisted by SG (used). Additionally noted is a very strong section of the NZ defins ERRORS – with missing colours, shifts, albino ovpts, offsets, PE25b (Z) Foil-stamped overprint design error issued and recalled (one sheet known) supplied by Campbell Paterson for $1,200 NDZ. This NZ defin ERRORS section alone appears to have cost the collector in excess of $12,000 NDZ – a considerable sum and all apparently perfect unmounted mint and identified in a stockbook. As may be deduced the describer could continue extolling the virtues of this conservatively estimated collection. Please note that whilst we cannot guarantee vendor supplied catalogue values, we have no reason to doubt them. This collection only may be viewed by appointment at our offices, scans of significant areas can be supplied, verbal condition reports naturally. For a collector wishing to continue this represents an unparalleled opportunity, not to mention the high face value cost residing in areas that have barely been touched upon, or the expensive printed albums that a good proportion of the collection is contained therein.

Many 100s, earlies condition mixed with useful ‘nugget’ pickings, but essentially this would form the nucleus of an excellent higher entry level collection forming a ‘launchpad’ for development and continuation.

21543Great Britain - QV (line engraved)1840 1d black, deceptively simple small collection of 1d blacks comprising 6 singles, several being 4 margin, two of these being pretty but faults, followed by no less than 8 different 1d black covers (all bar one being entires/covers, the one being upon a small front), half of those on cover appear to be 4 margin examples, one (letters M-A) appearing exceptional 4 margins to trace of adjoining stamp. A few black covers the adhesive not tied to cover, and one or few appear to be unplated (who knows why), finally note a 1d black envelope backstamped Hastings October 1840, addressed to Mr. Charles John Rowley, Combe Farm, Greenwich and a 14 years later (August 1854) printed illustrated Obituary poem entitled ‘Lines Occasioned' by the Death of Captain Rowley of Weeting Hall (Near Brandon, in the County of Suffolk) – who was Commander of a British Man of War (Died aged just 49) – what a wonderful piece to research. Finally note a couple of letters – one from a much travelled niece returning from America after a twenty year absence, the Lady must have come from a wealthy family.
