On June 27-28, Daniel F. Kelleher Auctions will present almost 1,000 lots of collections, stocks and accumulations of the United States and the world at its headquarters in Danbury, Conn. Each day of this auction will commence at 10 a.m. Eastern Time.

According to Kelleher, the massive two-day sale will showcase material from more than 100 consignors and more intact collections than Kelleher has ever offered before.

Dealers will find myriad opportunities to expand and replenish their inventory. Collectors seeking to fill holes in their albums or start a new collection will find much to tempt them in the sale.

There also will be a number of name collections up for bids, including further offerings from the Matyasovich collection of the United Nations and the Shaff collection of U.S. plate number singles, blocks and coils.

The sale opens with more than 200 lots of U.S. material.

U.S. collectors “will be thrilled by both the general and specialized collections, with particularly strong Prexies, Revenues and Postal History offerings,” Kelleher said.

The worldwide selections span almost the entire alphabet, from Andorra to Yugoslavia, with particular strength in French and German areas, Japan and Scandinavia.

“There’s something for everyone here, both in terms of quality and price,” Kelleher said.

Among the featured worldwide items is a comprehensive 1862-1937 Hong Kong collection of mint and used stamps.

Kelleher describes the collection, which is mounted on Stanley Gibbons album pages, as being very complete from the Queen Victoria issues through the issues of King George V.

According to Kelleher, the collection is “loaded with scarce and rare issues, perfect for online sales or breakdown for stock or to enhance a collection.”

Against a total Scott catalog value of $41,550, Kelleher lists this impressive Hong Kong collection with an estimate of $7,500 to $10,000 and an opening bid of $3,750.

Kelleher has prepared a single catalog for the two-day collections, stocks and accumulations auction that is available for viewing and download on the firm’s website with online bidding options available on Stamp Auction Network.
