Phoenix Auctions - Auction No.81

Auction 81 will be held at our Auction Rooms, 274A Canterbury Road Surrey Hills, Victoria on Saturday 13th June 2020 starting at 09:30a.m.

This auction is being held live on the net via our own auction systems. Just login and open the Live Bidding window. You can then bid on each lot just as if you were in the room. Bidding is also available via Stamp Auction Network's Live Auction Bidding.

If you have any questions about internet or phone bidding please call us on our help line (03) 9038 8136.

Session 1 (lots 501-986) starts at 9:30am and contains general collections, literature PPCs and Australian Commonwealth. There are very few Roo lots in this Auction, but plenty of everything else.
Session 2 (lots 987-1319) starts no earlier than 12:30pm. It contains Australian Colonies, including Hugh Freeman NSW & Victorian numerals and some very fine advertising covers, and Territories.
Session 3 (lots 1320-1561) starts no earlier than 3:00pm. It contains the Rest of the World, and includes our front cover item, lot 1343 1d Captain Cook with Inverted Centre on cover

The COVID-19 restrictions have eased slightly. Now we can have limited room bidders. If you feel that you need to attend please apply to be a room bidder, do NOT just turn up on the day unannounced. You can still pick up on the day.

With limited room bidders, we have organised ourselves to cater for more phone bidders, but we do encourage everyone to use our website as much as possible as that will provide you with best information about each lot and your bids.

We are continuing to place more images of each lot on the website to help reduce the need to doing viewing. Please contact us if you need additional information.

That's a cracker item, Glen!

Just a head's up for those interested, there's some excellent early Australian and New Zealand postal history from the convict era too.

Lot #572: GB 1841 Australian Packet Ships: 3 page printed newsheet offering free passage to Australia, contains a wealth of information including sailing dates of 21 ships for the calendar year 1841, a map of Australia and the distance between the principal towns of NSW. Posted from Lombard St, London to Edinburgh, 1d red Stars cancelled with black Maltese Cross, fine Maltese Cross 'LS/15FE15/1841' backstamp. Small faults as expected. Attractive and rare. [Produced when Colonies were targeting inwards investment and skilled labour.]

Lot #1482: 1847 (Nov 3) entire letter, written at Nelson, to England endorsed "via Sydney" with largely fine strike of 'PAID/AT/WELLINGTON NEW ZEALAND' crowned-circle handstamp in red SG #CC8 (Cat £350 on cover) and very fine 'WELLINGTON/NOV3/1847/A/NEW ZEALAND' backstamp in black, rated "4" in red & "1/-" in black, London transit backstamp and fine Burnley double-arc arrival backstamp in blue. [Letter was probably sent privately from Nelson to Wellington to either avoid the 4d internal mail fee or to catch an earlier ship departure from Wellington. At some point the letter has been tidied up by removing excess "white paper", making the entire thinner and easier to display.]

Or lot #1219 - 1853 stampless entire sent from Melbourne (Australia) to Salem (USA), via London and Boston. What an incredible voyage at that time – if only covers could talk!
