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.
