The All World & Collections catalogue highlights important sections of Italy & Italian States, Romania, Russia, China and Egypt, Sperati Forgeries, France, Colonies and French area collections, as well as a wonderful section of over 400 one-country and all world collections and lots. The sale begins with ‘Area Italiana’ which mainly features Italian States with two important assemblies of Sicily and Tuscany, offering fresh material which has not been on the market for many years.

Additionally, it boasts exquisite proofs and cancels from the Athens 1906 and Paris 1924 summer games.The highlight of the auction is the 1980 Moscow gold winner’s medal won by Linda Margaret Watson. As usual, the auction also features a wealth of Olympic stamp usages, varieties, cancellations, postcards and medals. A significant amount of paper memorabilia and ephemera is also included, in particular tickets and posters, most of which come from the “Bob Christianson” Collection, with over 160 lots from that source.


Last but not least is an outstanding array of worldwide lots being offered in an online auction, the majority of which originated from the “Hausman” Collection.

We are often reminded that without the trust and continued appetite of our passionate and active collector-clients, this sale would not be possible, so we would firstly like to thank all our sellers and future buyers for your lasting support.
