Specialized British Empire Public Auction

Colonial Stamp Company’s Fall Sale

Our 129th Specialized British Empire Public Auction

Emphasis on 1840-1935 issues

Several great estates and consignments anchor our Fall Auction!


• Over 100 lots from Great Britain (to £5), plus strong Cyprus to £5 and Gibraltar, also to £5 and Malta with a rare 10/- (wmkd MCA).

• Extensive Australia and states including the “key” 20/- green Postage Due, followed up with much Oceania.

• We have an interesting range of Canada classics (plus BNA rarities), an extensive range of British West Indies including an almost impossible mint set of Grenada J4-J8, as well as a Tobago mint 1d manuscript bisect.

• Africa appears to be stronger than usual with Sierra Leone to the £5, Uganda plus Zanzibar rarities and varieties.

• British Asia is anchored by a solid Hong Kong section, many rare Malaya including a mint $25 from Perak and both a $25 and $50 from Trengganu.

Terms of Consignment

The terms for consigning material are simple. First, please write or call with a description of the material before you send it. Your shipment should contain a minimum of $5000 potential realized value (For material totaling less than $5000, we will be happy to review it for outright purchase). Each mint or used item should catalog at least $250, unless you are forwarding a collection in its entirety. All 20th-Century material in that price range is acceptable. Nineteenth Century material should be in very fine condition. An inventory should be included with all shipments of sets and single items (not required for whole collections). Please send all shipments via registered mail for your protection. All material received that is not deemed suitable for consignment will be returned promptly. Shortly before the sale date you will receive a list of your items included in the sale and a copy of the catalog.

The commission rate is only 10% for items realizing $150 or over. Due to production costs the minimum fee per lot is $15 for items realizing less than $150. There are no other charges.

Payment to consignors commences 60 days after the sale, subject to invoices being paid and items on extension having cleared.
