Airmail Internet/Postal Auctions

Aerophilately, Flight covers, Airmail stamps and Ephemera

Closes at midnight Thursday September 26, 2019
Available for viewing & bidding on line now.
Auction #94 features 769 lots of worldwide airmail cover collections, single items, and ephemera.

We have introduced two new collector categories:  ‘Interruptions and Accidents ‘ and ‘Scarce and Unusual Routings’ containing covers from the Proud archives with his original flight, route, and postage notes, supplemented by data from  Wingent’s monographs on IAW Aircraft Movements 1927-1939. Many of these covers are an order of magnitude harder to find and research and/or of higher aerophilatelic significance than some of the more popular material. This ‘added value’ potential could well be of interest to airmail collectors, exhibitors, and specialist valuers.
