Top-class philatelic material from around the world at the Corinphila series of sales 227-233 in Zurich (26 Nov. - 1 Dec. 2018). A truly exceptional offer of valuable philatelic and postal history material awaits collectors in seven auction catalogues.

‘BESANÇON’- Australian States and Australia (part 3)

Collectors will be particularly keen to see the continuation of the sale of the now legendary ‘BESANÇON’ auction series. Now we offer Australian States together with the associated ‘South Australia Departmental stamps 1868-1874’ collection, documented in two high-quality special catalogues.

‘BESANÇON’ - Cape of Good Hope (part 1)

Also from the ‘BESANÇON’ collection and presented in a special catalogue, Corinphila offers a unique classic ‘Cape of Good Hope’ collection in the forthcoming auction. Often, these items come from the formerly important collections of Ferrary, Riesco, Hind, Pack, Caspary, Huston, Burrus including the legendary ‘Woodblock’ error of colour of 1861 One Penny blue (instead of red) in a pair (Lot 6086).  

Chile – the Joseph Hackmey collection

Another special catalogue documents one of the best collections of the ‘Colon’ (Columbus) issues of Chile ever assembled: the ‘Joseph Hackmey’ collection. The material being offered is particularly strong in multiples, from proofs via unused pieces to blocks and strips used on cover.  

Federal philatelic material from classical to modern and the “Jack Luder” collection (part 4)

Just as extensive as it is outstanding in quality, the special catalogue of Switzerland & Liechtenstein presents almost everything the (collector’s) heart desires. The two special catalogues document numerous rarities and top-class items notable for their rarity and fine condition, among them a 5 Rappen Rayon II light blue of 1851 with complete framed cross (Lot 7108).  

Highlights from all over the world in the main catalogue

The main catalogue offers a number of other sought-after single lots and collections from the philatelic collecting areas of Europe and the whole world. In the field of European philately and postal history an appealing range of high-quality lots offers, among other things, Austria, France, Romania and Spain. A strong section of Ceylon includes some appealing stamps and covers. The same applies in the case of Egypt, and the New Zealand collecting area is also extensively represented with some attractive lots, just to name a few examples. A high-quality range of exciting collections and bulk lots, interesting lots of covers and deceased estates completes the auction series.
