Consignments Still Being Accepted - Why not Take Advantage of
this Outstanding Selling Opportunity

Our Spring 2017 auction once again promises to be a major philatelic event and the highlight of the Spring 2017 stamp auction season in Asia, with a number of important specialised collections already in-house, representing a broad and deep range of material encompassing the full spectrum of Chinese and Hong Kong philately. The auction already includes a very fine array of China, People's Republic, Hong Kong and Asia, and will be another important auction from the leading stamp auction house for China and Hong Kong.

There is still time to consign to the marquee auction of China and Hong Kong of the 2017 Spring season. The deadline for consignments is 30 November.

China encompasses exciting Ching Dynasty, with interesting Customs and early Imperial Post postal history. We are once again honoured to have a further selected offering from the Jane and Dan Sten Olsson collection of Large Dragons, with unique essays, proofs, complete sheets, rare Settings, and some of the most important covers in existence, including earliest usages, spectacular frankings, incoming mail, and Hong Kong, Japan and U.S. combinations.

The undoubted highlight of the 1894 60th Birthday of the Dowager Empress is one of the two recorded extant sets of the Mollendorf printing in complete sheets of twenty-five (illustrated in Prize Selections from the Rocpex Taipei '81), while there are also complete panes of twenty-five of the first printing 12ca. and 24ca., and a wonderful array of covers.

The 1897 New Currency surcharges are represented by rare imperforate between varieties from the various surcharge settings and issues.

Choice panes of various values of the 1897 Red Revenue surcharges continue this unique theme of significant multiples for all the 1878-97 issues.

The Republic of China includes the Provisional Neutrality surcharged for use in Hankow, Nanking and Changsa $2 (2) on local Nanking envelope and the rare Statistical Department of Customs $1 with overprint inverted from the Henry Nyi collection.

The specialised collection of Japanese Post Offices in China and the Allied Intervention in Siberia formed by Dr. Hiroshi Yoshikawa features among the Foreign Post Offices, with an 1 December 1876 envelope from Newchwang being one of the very earliest usages from the Chinese Customs Post in Manchuria.

There are also fine sections of the other Foreign Post Offices, Chinese Provinces, Taiwan, and Local Posts.

There is extensive postal stationery with a specialised collection of the 1907 C.I.P. third issue, including day of issue usage (1 Oct. 1907) and double card variety folded at right.

The People's Republic of China includes our usual strong in-depth offering of all issues from 1949 to present, with the popular sets and miniature sheets, as well as a complete sheet of the Year of the Monkey.

Hong Kong features the "K. Ashleigh" collection, notable for its study of the Queen Victoria overprints and surcharges, replete with outstanding varieties, and Queen Victoria blocks and large multiples. Among the rare and desirable varieties are exceptional examples of the 1880 5c. on 8c. inverted and double surcharges (the latter illustrated in Webb), 1891 7c. on 10c. double surcharge mint, and one of two known examples of the 1897 Postal Fiscal $1 on $2 perf. 14 dull bluish green with the Chinese diagonal handstamp omitted (S.G. F11b; ex Dale-Lichtenstein). The complete pane of the Jubilee 2c. from the D'Almada collection is one of the three such surviving largest multiples.

Finally, the Other Asian Countries include the final part of the Dr. Taizo Maeda Gold Medal collection of North Korea, with significant proofs and noteworthy multiples, as well as postal history.
