The Arthur Gray Collection of Australia is the finest, most extensive and most valuable ever formed. The outstanding Grand Prix King George V Heads are to be offered at public auction by Mossgreen in October 2015.
Mossgreen is honoured to be entrusted with the sale of this exceptional collection, which is expected to realise up to $A5,000,000.
An international promotional tour with stops in Singapore, London, New York and Sydney is planned, culminating in the auction at Mossgreen headquarters in Melbourne.
Arthur Gray, who lives on Sydney’s North Shore, is a former executive with BHP, a merchant banker with Kleinwort Benson, and managing director of Russell’s Health Foods. He was also an original owner of Millennium Philatelic Auctions.
Gary Watson, Mossgreen’s new Head of Philately, said “We are delighted to have the opportunity to prepare this magnificent collection for sale to our global clientele of discerning buyers.”
Responding, Arthur Gray commented, “I have collected stamps for more than 70 years so it is a wrench to part with my ‘Heads’.
However, I have known Gary Watson and Charles Leski for many years and am confident that they will do the collection justice.”
Mossgreen was founded in 2004, and recently merged with Prestige Philately to create one of the most powerful brands in the philatelic market. Gary Watson, former Director of Prestige Philately is now Head of Philately at Mossgreen and together with Charles Leski, former Director of Leski Auctions, offers philatelic clients unrivalled expertise and experience in this collecting field.
