Spink Shreves Galleries Sale - 118

William H. Gross Collection Confederate States of America - November 19, 2009

On Thursday, November 19, 2009 the impressive collection formed by William H. Gross of Important Civil War Postal History featuring Confederate States Postmasters’ Provisionals will be sold at unreserved public auction in New York City. And, once again, Mr. Gross demonstrates his remarkable generosity by donating the entire sales proceeds to the Smithsonian National Postal Museum. These proceeds help facilitate an amazing $8 million donation which is the cornerstone gift to ensure a new, street level National Gallery to house and exhibit the Nation’s Stamp Collection.

The Gross Collection of Important Confederate States Postal History is relatively small (81 lots) but powerful assemblage of covers highlighted by several of the most famous CSA Postmasters’ Provisional covers in existence. In addition, this exciting sale also features selected CSA general issues on cover, as well as Union patriotics.

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

The Gross Collection of Important Confederate States Postal History will be appropriately honored and preserved in a special hardbound all-color auction catalog. It has been similarly designed much like his now famous previous catalogs such as of his magnificent Great Britain collection in 2007, his Scandinavia collection in May of 2008 and his British Empire from October 2008. These and any future Gross Collection sales catalogs will certainly form an incomparable “set” for any philatelic library.

Catalogs for The Gross Collection of Important Confederate States Postal History are now available for $40.00 each ($50.00 to non-U.S. addresses). Orders may be placed online using a credit card at www.SpinkShreves.com or by calling 800-556-7826 or 972-788-2100.
