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.
