The wave of Siegel's online sales from this week ends with a Friday afternoon session, featuring over 200 essays and proofs from the Vaquero Collection. Ranging from 1861-1889, the contents of these essays consist of locomotive dealings, Declaration of Indepence detalings, and various bank notes issues. The historical connections in this session will peak any stamp-lover's interest.
This two-day online sale from Siegel will be live on the Stamp Auction Network at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, May 11, 2017. The first session features an array of diverse lots (49 to be exact), including re-issues and bank notes from the late-1800s. Session two focues on dozens of Washington-Franklin stamps, while three offers more well-traveled mailings. The standard 18% buyers fee will apply to whoever has the most luck in acquiring these rare mailings.
There's not much to say about this sale; the lot truly speaks for itself. This Ethel B. McCoy Inverted Jenny Position 76 stamp will be the only lot offered on Thursday, May 11, 2017, at 1:30 PM. This is the sixth stamp of the 8th row, within the 100-stamp sheet - and features part original gum, rich colors, small thin spot, skillfully reperforated at top and left.
The material presented in this sale is from Steven Walske’s vast collection of North American Blockade Run Mail and French Royal Packet Mail. The former comprises three separate sections of his award-winning exhibit—the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, and the American Civil War. The Revolutionary War section of this sale is dominated by items that were carried through the American blockade of British enclaves. The French Royal Packet Mail section begins with two extremely rare Spanish Royal Packet letters to France posted at New Orleans. Finally, there is the American Civil War that has been carefully cultivated over the past twenty years.
