Eastern states “The auction will not only appeal to seasoned specialists, but also to anyone wishing to embark on a new and fascinating area.”

The collection features over 500 lots of specialized material and includes examples of all known pence issue complete sheets, die and plate proofs, surcharged provisionals, Sperati forgeries and the well known Newfoundland airmail surcharges, some of them inverted.
