Spink Shreves Galleries Sale - 107
The Frederick R. Mayer Collection of Costa Rica - October 22, 2008
Spink Shreves Galleries is honored to sell, at unreserved public auction,
one of the greatest single country collections ever formed. There is no
question that the collection of postage stamps and postal history of Costa
Rica - assembled over a lifetime by the renowned philatelist Frederick R.
Mayer - is the most comprehensive and valuable ever formed. Its scope and
depth are simply remarkable – replete with virtually every recorded major
rarity in all categories - often with multiple examples of each.
All areas of Costa Rican philately are extensively covered in Mayer
Collection, including stampless covers, stamp issues both on and off cover
(including the finest and most comprehensive selection of 1863 First Issue
covers ever offered at auction), essays and proofs, air mail related
material, postal stationery and revenues - and much more. The appearance of
this spectacular collection is truly a once-in-a-life opportunity for
collectors of Latin American stamps, or for collectors of important
rarities of the world.
As with all Spink Shreves auctions, bidders may participate in the auction
- live on the Internet - during the sale. Please see our website
www.spinkshreves.com for details of this exciting bidding option.
