Stamp of Approval
A collection of stamps from a Bournemouth bungalow is expected to sell for thousands of pounds when it goes under the Charterhouse hammer in their June 22nd & 23rd two day auction in Sherborne.
“The stamps were collected by the lady 20 to 30 years when she was working in London. During her lunch break she would regularly pop into Stanley Gibbons and treat herself to a stamp or two.” Commented Richard Bromell.
Moving forward a couple of decades, and after a few house moves, the stamps were relegated to the bottom of a wardrobe in her bungalow. Not having looked through them over the past few years, she decided now is the time to let someone else enjoy the collection and contacted Charterhouse to arrange a free home visit.
The stamps range in date from the iconic 1840 penny black and other Queen Victoria stamps through to more recent Queen Elizabeth II commemorative issues along with a large selection of First Day Covers. Displayed in a large number of albums, the collection is expected to sell for over £2,000.
Charterhouse is now accepting entries for their June 22nd & 23rd auction which includes coins, stamps, medals & collectors’ items along with nearly 5,000 bottles of wine, port & spirits. They are also accepting entries for their specialist auction of classic cars on Sunday 18th June.
