Airmail Internet/Postal Auctions

Aerophilately, Flight covers, Airmail stamps and Ephemera

Closes Friday June 14, 2019
Available for viewing & bidding on line now.
Auction #93 features 748 lots of worldwide airmail covers and ephemera.

We have added 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 with 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 the more popular material. This ‘added value’ potential could well be of interest to airmail collectors, exhibitors, and specialist valuers.

TO VIEW: The  catalogue is available here to view direct and is visually superior to the printed version. Just scroll through the ‘View Auction’ pages, or locate individual items using the ‘Keyword Search, ‘Common Searches’, ‘Years’, or ‘Categories/Countries.
