As a well established sale on the auction calendar, Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood’s forthcoming Sporting & Collectors Sale on 18th September 2013 is eagerly awaited by many collectors. This year, in particular, philatelists will be keen to see perhaps the best selection of stamps to be offered for many years.
A collection of St Helena stamps
The stamp section within the auction has been catalogued by consultant Stuart Billington, who has been impressed by the range of ‘good quality old time collections and albums’. With estimates from low hundreds to several thousands, there is a broad range of areas and categories for collectors. Among the highlights is a collection of St Helena stamps (carrying an estimate of £600-£800) and an interesting 1861 stationary card used to Singapore.
