 Session One - United States Stamps and Covers

Session Two - British and Worldwide Stamps and Covers

Session Three - United States, British, and Worldwide Collections and Accumulations

In June of this year, H.R. Harmer offered the first part of the Richard D. Miggins Collection of the Philippines. The results of this sale showed the Philippines to be one of the strongest sectors of the philatelic market. Catalogue values were regularly exceeded as collectors clamored to add great rarities to their collection that only come to market a few times each generation.

Pre-sale estimates were exceeded four- and fivefold. Bidders from around the globe expressed interest in all eras of this country’s rich and complex history. We are, therefore, very proud to be able to present to you another specialized catalogue of the Philippines—in addition to other United States Possessions. Of interest to those who may have bid in our June sale are further offerings from the Richard D. Miggins Collection, demonstrating the full scope of what is undoubtedly one of the finest Philippines collections ever to be assembled. The main section of this catalogue is rounded out by the Stanley Estabrook Collection of Philippines Flight Covers and the Donn Lueck Collection of Philippines Revenues—both wonderful collections with many eye-catching items.

The Miggins Collection, while certainly exceptional, is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to US Possessions. Both Mr. Estabrook and Mr. Lueck demonstrate just how many ways there are to create a specialized collection of the Philippines. Perhaps looking

through the pages of this catalogue, you’ll be inspired to start your own. As we started in our spring sales, we will again be using a start price for each lot rather than an estimate.

Whereas an estimate is oftentimes ambiguous and open-ended, with lots opening at and selling for a fraction of the estimate, a start price allows bidders to know exactly where the bidding for an item will start.

For longtime bidders who are used to submitting a bid lower than the low estimate, we must make it explicitly clear that we will not consider bids below the listed start price. From Caspary to Liechtenstein, great collectors put their trust in H.R. Harmer for the last 78 years. If you’re interested in consigning or buying with us, please contact us today and we will provide you with the same high-quality service that our company was founded upon all those decades ago.
