Negev Holyland ONE HUNDREDTH NEGEV HOLYLAND AUCTION
Welcome to the ONE HUNDREDTH NEGEV HOLYLAND AUCTION.
these. Please check the LATE LOTS (301 THRU 326). There was an unavoidable delay in getting SOME HISTORY
In the mid 1950’s Michael Bale of Ilfracombe England started dealing in Israeli stamps and postal history. The earliest sale catalogue under the Michael H. Bale name on hand is #7 from November 1958. Sale number 54 was dated October 1977.
In June 1978, the sales were rebranded as NEGEV HOLYLAND STAMPS. The first sales were not numbered. Numbering started with sale 05 in September 1980. Sale number 50 was in April 1999.
In late 1999 Michael Bale sold the auctions and stock to Button Stamp Company, run by Sid Morginstin of Bordentown NJ, USA. The Bale line of Israel and Palestine Catalogues were sold to another company.
The first sale under the new ownership was number 51 in April 2000.
There is little doubt that Negev Holyland is the oldest auction house devoted to Holyland Philately and Judaica.
Michael Bale would like to record his Best Wishes to Sid Morginstin for carrying on the good reputation that Negev Holyland had built up over the years - Michael is now in his 90th year and is grateful for the friendliness and support given by his many customers over the years from the mid-1950s to his retirement in late 1999. They were great times!
I am working on a stamp album for the INTERIM PERIOD. It will include all stamps used during the period. I hope to have it done before the end of 2022 or early 2023.
I will have a booth at the NOJEX-ASDA STAMP SHOW.
LOCATION: Meadowlands Hilton Hotel 2 Meadowlands Plaza East Rutherford, New Jersey 07073 (Located off Route 3 East and the NJ Turnpike)
