The 14th SCHLEGEL auction once again offers a rich variety of nearly all collecting areas. For those who love specialties we have done it again. “Rare and of high quality“ applies to all four of our main highlights.
On the first pages of our collection section (Lots 300-457) you find the rare Baden and Overseas' reference collections from the provenience of the late stamp expert Georg Richter (1874-1960) which had been untouched since his death. Both collections are captivating due to - compared to other reference collections - the large number of originals.
The high-quality estate "Disinfected mail 1831-1865" (Lots 2143-2241) had been family-owned for decades. Exquisite covers, rarities and previously unknown items (e.g. Bosnia, Macedonia, Serbia, Romania, Austria, Hungary and Ottoman Empire) will be offered for the first time to the public.
Top of the pile in our 14th auction must be a former exhibition collection (Lots 1-275). Our special catalogue "LUXEMBURG 1852-1880" covers the issues of the classic period of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and features rare multiples, unique mixed frankings, specialties and desirable mint stamps. This collection will be offered in 275 single lots.
Our single lot section is equally impressive and is led by the famous "Yellow Mercury" (newspaper stamp). This item (Lot 3004) originates from the famous stamp collector Philipp de Ferrari who assumedly once owned the most complete worldwide collection that ever existed. The stamp at hand is among the rarest in the world. An exceptional and singular offer!
Throw in many more outstanding stamps, covers and even coins from all over the world and we are confident that you will find something of interest. We look forward to seeing you at our sale (Pre-Sale Viewing in our premises at Kurfurstendamm 200, daily from March 24th - April, 3rd 2014 from 10 am - 6 pm). Best of luck with your bidding!
