AUSTRIAN PHILATELIC SOCIETY - AUCTION 120

The Auction closes for bidding midnight 26 June 2015 and is open to APS Members only. Click here for membership details.

Dear Members,

I’m pleased to present the catalogue for the Society’s 120th Auction. Seventeen of our Members have offered material this time, and half the lots have reserve-prices of £5 or less. I hope that there is something for everyone, but would particularly draw your attention to:

Collectors of the perennially-popular subjects of railway TPOs, WW1 feldpost and 1920s inflation will, as always, find much to examine.

Good luck with your bidding.

Keith

Webmaster's remarks: Images are not normally provided for mint items and cheap, bulk lots. Clicking a 'W' in the right-hand column will open the image in a separate window; however the W-links are automatically added en mass so you may find some are broken. The size of this image window is controlled by the settings on your computer, not by this web site. The pictures have been provided by a 'quick and easy' scanning process which does not give completely accurate colour reproduction, and also usually produces a heavy black shadow at the top of each image. Do not rely on the pictures to judge shades. In particular, the buff colour of monarchy-period postcards tends to come out much whiter than the actual colour, while all-white items are often deliberately darkened to distinguish them from the background; and sometimes the stamps appear to glow luridly! The images have not been retouched (ie, all the markings added over the years by dealers and vendors have been left); many have been rotated to be parallel to the top of your screen. Also, all the images have been scaled to be the same width; if you need to know precise dimensions ask the Auctioneer. To ensure you are looking at the latest version of this page, use your browser's "Refresh" feature.
