Lot Symbol CatNo. Lot Description CV or Estimate
226 og/nh 5/512, D1-39, O3/108 S.G. #5/512, D1-39, O3/103, The comprehensive and valuable balance of the William H. Gross Collection of Great Britain, approximately 550 different items, mostly singles and, with the exception of one stamp, all are mint, all neatly displayed in a single Lighthouse hingeless album, plus a few additional pages for varieties, with the Stanley Gibbons catalogue numbers noted under each stamp, the collection is not only noteworthy for an exceptional representation of major numbers, but a wealth of plate, shade and watermark varieties as well, there is an impressive number of stamps that catalogue between £300 and £750 each (and several even higher), the collection begins with only a spotty representation of Line Engraved items, however the 1853-83 Surface Printed issues is where the collection really shines, with a plethora of desirable and salable stamps, with many stamps collected by all of the various plate numbers as detailed in the Stanley Gibbons catalogue, shade varieties abound as well, the 1887-1951 issues also are extremely well represented with many shade and watermark varieties, even some high value Seahorses are noted, the postage dues are complete for the period, again with some shades and varieties, concluding with a nice representation of official stamps and issues for Offices in China; while there are some earlier issues with small flaws as to be expected, the overall condition found in this collection is well above the norm, with very few exceptions the stamps possess o.g. and hinging is typically fairly light, in fact as the collection progresses there are many n.h. stamps to be found; a very valuable and exciting lot as the Stanley Gibbons catalogue value will surely exceed £100,000. Est. $20,000-30,000

SOLD for $85,000.00
Will close during Public Auction
