Since most are large lots there will probably be fewer landmines.

All bulk lots/collections and no singles, so it will be a different dynamic IMO.

The auction just completed.

Most of the front of book and world material saw very little competition, with most lots falling short of (inflated?) estimates. However, the U.S. revenue material was quite active, proving once again that this area is quite vibrant at the moment.

Predicting collection/lot results is always difficult, unless you've seen them in person, as the online images usually only show part of the material.

The large cancel lots did very well, and some went WAY past estimates, especially the printed cancel lots. All of those large lots were outside my budget pretty much from the get go, as most had surpassed my comfort zone even before the live bidding started.

I ended up with the one lot I really wanted at a price I can live with, and was shut out on the others I had planned to bid on.

Lots of note (15% BP not included):

20. Garnered $1,800 against CV of $1036

211. $4250 against estimate of $2000-$3000

221. $4500 against estimate of $750-$1000

227. $1000 against estimate of $300-400

232. $850 against estimate of $200-300

233. $850 against estimate of $200-300. I had planned to bid on this, but went well beyond what I expected.

237. $19,000 against estimate of $7500-$10000.

249. $3200 against estimate of $500-750.

252. $2700 against estimate of $300-400

Estimate on lot 233 was far too low, it sold at about the right number. Estimate on 237 was also too low, only about $4-$5/stamp. Estimate on lot 249 far too low, there is about $5000 retail in that lot given decent condition. 252 also much too low an estimate. Scarce to find so many printed cancels in one group of lots, no real surprise that they went very well.
