World-class Rarities at Corinphila Auctions in Zurich

 

An ‘Inverted Swan’ from the Australian State of Western Australia and a ‘Small Dollar’ of China are the outstanding items in the forthcoming Corinphila auction series, which will be held in Zurich from 28 May to 2 June 2018. Additionally to these two top-class items, collectors will find an outstanding selection of attractive philatelic and postal history material from all over the world. The auction itself will present, in five catalogues, the most comprehensive range of material of recent years - both in terms of the number of lots and the value of the material being offered.

 

The auction at a glance

In addition to the two world rarities of China and Australia, many other international collecting areas are on offer at Corinphila. Due to the large amount of material the auction will take place from Monday to Saturday, over just one week from28 May to 2 June 2018. There are five auction catalogues: in addition to the main catalogue of ‘International Philately and Postal History’ there are four special catalogues, ‘Switzerland Classical to Modern’, plus ‘Switzerland - The Jack Luder Collection III’, and also ‘Romania’ with the specialised collection of Eduard Cohen (untouched since the 1960s, stored in a London vault!). In addition there is a special ‘Australian States’ catalogue.
