are some of the more interesting items from Lex De Ment’s recent
The price for the above stamp, with the “period” next to the”3.” was relatively low. The stamp is an unusual variety in that, although issued in 1932, it was only recognized in the Unitrade Specialized catalogue in its 2010 Edition. We first noticed the variety in the past 2 years when a few copies appeared at auction. The above example did not come with a certificate, which is not surprising given its low value, but we do wonder about its origin. Unitrade identifies it as coming from position 87 in the plate.
The price realized
of $800 is the best price we have recorded for a block of 4 of this
variety. It was never hinged. The Shilling Mark is found in the UR stamp
in the LL “13” denomination circle. Like us you may need
a magnifying glass to spot it.
We found these single imperforates particularly interesting and had no previous record of their existence.
a pleasure to review the results of Lex De Ment’s auctions!
