Russian Imperial Collection for Sale!


At Daniel F. Kelleher Auctions
Sale No. 660 - Public Auction Sale ASDA National Postage Stamp Show The Hilton Hotel, 1335 Avenue of the Americas, New York, NY Sunday, October 26, 2014 10:00 AM

One of the highlights of the collection includes a 1857, First Issue imperforate, 10k brown & blue (Scott 1). It is a breathtaking mint example, boasting huge even margins and luxurious, rich colors & impression, along with nearly full yellow-white original gum, extremely fine and choice, a simply remarkable example of this rare and legendary stamp, with original gum and lightly hinged. The stamp is ex- Salisbury, ex-Lovitz collection of Imperial Russia. A Photo-Certificate was issued in 2014 by the Royal Philatelic Society of London. It is Estimated at $50,000 - 75,000.
The gum of this issue has been a somewhat hotly contested topic. The current Royal certificate states "unused" & genuine. As is the Royal's policy, their certificates do not comment on gum, except where they state the stamp is regummed or has no gum. The term “unused” means that the gum remaining, which may be more or less, depending on the age of the stamp and its normally expected condition, is original to the stamp, making the example we offer here one of a very few certified with original gum.
