TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR BUYERS
These conditions set out the terms on which we (Spink Switzerland SA, Via Motta 44, 6900 Lugano Switzerland) contract with you (Buyer) either as
agent on behalf of the Seller or as principal if we are the Seller. You should read these conditions carefully.
1 DEFINITIONS
The following definitions in this condition apply in these conditions.
Buyer’s Premium:
means the charge payable by you as a percentage of the Hammer Price, at the rates set out in clause 5.1 below;
Certificate of Authenticity: means a certificate issued by an Expert Committee confirming the authenticity of a Lot;
Expert Committee:
means a committee of experts to whom a Lot may be sent for an extension in accordance with clause 3.4.3;
Forgery:
means a Lot constituting an imitation originally conceived and executed as a whole with a fraudulent intention to deceive
as to authorship, origin, age, period, culture or source where the correct description as to such matters is not reflected by
the description in the catalogue and which at the date of the auction had a value materially less than it would have had if it
had been in accordance with the description in the catalogue. Accordingly, no Lot shall be capable of being a Forgery by
reason of any damage and/or restoration work of any kind;
Hammer Price:
means the amount of the highest bid accepted by the auctioneer in relation to a Lot;
Lot:
means any item deposited with us for sale at auction and, in particular, the item or items described against any Lot number
in any catalogue;

Spink Group:
Spink and Son Limited, our subsidiaries and associated companies;
VAT:

age, attribution, genuineness or provenance of any Lot nor for any other
errors of description or for any faults or defects in any Lot.
2 SPINK’S ROLE AS AGENT
2.1All sales undertaken by us either at auction or privately are undertaken
either as agent on behalf of the Seller or from time to time, as principal if
we are the owner of the Lot. Please note that even if we are acting as agent
on behalf of the Seller rather than as principal, we may have a financial
interest in the Lot.
2.2 The contract for the sale of the Lot will be between you and the Seller.
3 BEFORE THE SALE
3.1Examination of goods
You are strongly advised to examine personally any goods in which you are
interested, before the auction takes place. Condition reports are usually
available on request. We provide no guarantee to you other than in relation
to Forgeries, as set out in clause 5.10 of these Terms and Conditions.
3.2Catalogue descriptions
3.2.1
Statements by us in the catalogue or condition report, or made
orally or in writing elsewhere, regarding the authorship, origin, date, age,
size, medium, attribution, genuineness, provenance, condition or estimated selling price of any Lot are merely statements of opinion, and are not to
be relied on as statements of definitive fact. Catalogue illustrations are for
guidance only, and should not be relied on either to determine the tone or
colour of any item or to reveal imperfections. Estimates of the selling price
should not be relied on as a statement that this price is either the price at
which the Lot will sell or its value for any other purpose.
3.2.2
Many items are of an age or nature which precludes their being
in perfect condition and some descriptions in the catalogue or given by way
of condition report make reference to damage and/or restoration. We provide this information for guidance only and the absence of such a reference
does not imply that an item is free from defects or restoration nor does a
reference to particular defects imply the absence of any others.
3.2.3
Other than as set out in clause 5.10, and in the absence of fraud,
neither the Seller nor we, nor any of our employees or agents, are responsible for the correctness of any statement as to the authorship, origin, date,
3.3Your Responsibility
You are responsible for satisfying yourself as to the condition of the goods
and the matters referred to in the catalogue description.
3.4Extensions
3.4.1
If you wish to obtain an expert opinion or Certificate of Authenticity on any Lot (other than a mixed Lot or Lot containing undescribed
stamps) you must notify us in writing not less than forty-eight hours before the time fixed for the commencement of the first session of the sale.
If accepted by us, such request shall have the same effect as notice of an
intention to question the genuineness or description of the Lot for the
purposes of clause 5.10 (Refund in the case of Forgery) of these Terms
and Conditions and the provisions of clause 5.10 (Refund in the case of
Forgery) shall apply accordingly.
3.4.2
Notice of a request for an expert opinion or Certificate of Authenticity must give the reason why such opinion is required and specify
the identity of your proposed expert which will be subject to agreement by
us. We reserve the right, at our discretion, to refuse a request for an expert
opinion or Certificate of Authenticity including (without limitation) where
the proposed expert is not known to us.
3.4.3
If we accept a request for an expert opinion or Certificate of Authenticity we will submit the Lot to the Expert Committee. You acknowledge and accept that the length of time taken by an Expert Committee to
reach an opinion will vary depending on the circumstances and in any event
is beyond our control.
3.4.4
We will not normally accept a request for an extension on account of condition. Any Lot described in the catalogue as having faults
or defects may not be returned even if an expert opinion or Certificate
of Authenticity cites other faults or defects not included in the catalogue
description, other than in the case of a Forgery.
3.4.5
Should Spink accept a request for an extension under the foregoing provisions of this paragraph, the fact may be stated by the Auctioneer
from the rostrum prior to the sale of the Lot.
WWW.SPINK.COM
4.7Currency Converter
3.4.6
It should be noted that any stamp accompanied by a Certificate
of Authenticity is sold on the basis of that Certificate only and not on the
basis of any other description or warranty as to authenticity. No request
for an extension will be accepted on such a stamp and the return of such a
stamp will not be accepted.
At some auctions, a currency converter will be operated, based on the one
month forward rates of exchange quoted to us by BSI SA or any other appropriate rate determined by us, at opening on the date of the auction. Bidding will take place in a currency determined by us. The currency converter
is not always reliable, and errors may occur beyond our control either in
the accuracy of the Lot number displayed on the converter, or the foreign
currency equivalent of bids made in the official currency of the auction. We
shall not be liable to you for any loss suffered as a result of you following
the currency converter.
3.4.7
If the expert opinion or Certificate of Authenticity demonstrate
the validity of the complaint, all the expenses for the appraisals will be paid
by us. If the complaint is invalid, you shall pay for all the appraiser expenses.
4 AT THE SALE
4.8Video images
4.1Refusal of admission
At some auctions there will be a video screen. Mistakes may occur in its
operation, and we cannot be liable to you regarding either the correspondence of the image to the Lot being sold or the quality of the image as a
reproduction of the original.
Our sales usually take place on our own premises or premises over which
we have control for the sale, and we have the right, exercisable at our
complete discretion, to refuse admission to the premises or attendance at
an auction.
4.2Registration before bidding
4.9Bidding Increments
When making a bid (whether such bids are made in person or by way of
telephone bids operated by Spink, commission or online or email bids),
you will be deemed to be acting as principal and will be accepting personal
liability, unless it has been agreed in writing, at the time of registration, that
you are acting as agent on behalf of a third party buyer acceptable to us.
Bidding opens at the starting price, in absence of higher commission bids,
and advances in the following order although the auctioneer may vary the
bidding increments during the course of the auction. The normal bidding
increments are:
50 to 100
by 10
100 to 500
by 20
500 to 1,000
by 50
1,000 to 2,000 by 100
2,000 to 5,000 by 200
5,000 to 10,000 by 500
10,000 to 20,000 by 1,000
20,000 to 50,000
by 2,000
50,000 to 100,000 by 5,000
100,000 to 200,000 by 10,000
200,000 to 500,000 by 20,000
4.4Commission Bids
4.10 Bidding by Spink.
If you give us instructions to bid on your behalf, by using the form provided in our catalogues or via our website, we shall use reasonable endeavours to do so, provided these instructions are received not later than 24
hours before the auction. If we receive commission bids on a particular Lot
for identical amounts, and at auction these bids are the highest bids for the
Lot, it will be sold to the person whose bid was received first. Commission
bids are undertaken subject to other commitments at the time of the sale,
and the conduct of the auction may be such that we are unable to bid as
requested. Since this is undertaken as a free service to prospective buyers
on the terms stated, we cannot accept liability for failure to make a commission bid. You should therefore always attend personally if you wish to
be certain of bidding.
4.10.1 The Spink Group reserves the right to bid on and purchase Lots
as principal.
You must complete and sign a registration form and provide identification
before making a bid at auction. Please be aware that we usually require
buyers to undergo a credit check.
Some lots may be designated, prior to the auction, as “Premium Lots”,
which means a deposit may be required before placing a bid on the item for
sale. Information will be posted on our website in such an event.
4.3Bidding as Principal
4.11 The Auctioneer’s Discretion
The auctioneer has the right at his absolute discretion to refuse any bid,
to advance the bidding in such manner as he may decide, to withdraw or
divide any Lot, to combine any two or more Lots and, in the case of error
or dispute, to put an item up for bidding again.
4.12 Successful Bid
Subject to the auctioneer’s discretion, the striking of his hammer marks
the acceptance of the highest bid, and the conclusion of a contract for sale
between you and the Seller.
4.5On-line Bidding
We offer internet services as a convenience to our clients. We will not be
responsible for errors or failures to execute bids placed on the internet,
including, without limitation, errors or failures caused by (i) a loss of internet connection by either party for whatever reason; (ii) a breakdown or
problems with the online bidding software and/or (iii) a breakdown or
problems with your internet connection, computer or system. Execution of
on-line internet bids is a free service undertaken subject to other commitments at the time of the auction and we do not accept liability for failing
to execute an online internet bid or for errors or omissions in connection
with this activity.
4.13 After Sale Arrangements
If you enter into any private sale agreements for any Lot with the Seller
within 60 days of the auction, we, as exclusive agents of the Seller reserve
the right to charge you the applicable Buyer’s Premium in accordance with
these Terms and Conditions, and the Seller a commission in accordance
with the terms of the Seller’s agreement
4.14 Return of Lot
4.6Telephone Bids
In the event that you have received a Lot and wish to return the Lot you
must notify us in writing within 7 days of receipt of the Lot, stating the
reason for the return. The Lot must then be returned to us within 14 days
of receipt, in the same condition as at the auction date. Any such request is
subject to our sole discretion.
If you make arrangements with us not less than 24 hours before the sale,
we shall use reasonable endeavours to contact you to enable you to participate in bidding by telephone, but in no circumstances will we be liable to
either the Seller or you as a result of failure to do so.

5.6.2
It is the responsibility of the Buyer to be aware of any Import
Duties that may be incurred upon importation to the final destination.
Spink will not accept return of any package in order to avoid these duties.
The onus is also on the Buyer to be aware of any Customs import restrictions that prohibit the importation of certain collectibles. Spink will not
accept return of the Lot(s) under these circumstances. Spink will not accept
responsibility for Lot(s) seized or destroyed by Customs.
5.7Recommended packers and shippers
If required our shipping department may arrange shipment as your agent.

to those Lots or other property. Following fourteen days’ notice to you of
the amount outstanding and remaining unpaid, the Spink Group shall have
the right to arrange the sale of such Lots or other property. We shall apply
the proceeds in discharge of the amount outstanding to us or the Spink
Group, and pay any balance to you;

of the outcome of your bids to avoid incurring charges for late payment.

following despatch.
9 ADDITIONAL PROVISIONS
The following provisions of this clause 9 shall apply only if you are acting
for the purposes of your business.
5.10 Refund in the case of Forgery
5.10.1 A sale will be cancelled, and the amount paid refunded to you
if a Lot (other than a miscellaneous item not described in the catalogue)
sold by us proves to have been a Forgery. We shall not however be obliged
to refund any amounts if either (a) the catalogue description or saleroom
notice at the auction date corresponded to the generally accepted opinion
of scholars or experts at that time, or fairly indicated that there was a conflict of opinions, or (b) it can be demonstrated that the Lot is a Forgery
only by means of either a scientific process not generally accepted for use
until after publication of the catalogue or a process which at the date of
the auction was unreasonably expensive or impracticable or likely to have
caused damage to the Lot. Furthermore, you should note that this refund
can be obtained only if the following conditions are met:
9.1Limitation of Liability
Subject to clause 6, we shall not be liable, whether in tort (including for
negligence or breach of statutory duty, contract, misrepresentation or
otherwise) for any:
9.1.1
loss of profits, loss of business, depletion of goodwill and/or
similar losses, loss of anticipated savings, loss of goods, loss of contract, loss
of use, loss of corruption of data or information; or
9.1.2
any special, indirect, consequential or pure economic loss, costs,
damages, charges or expenses.
9.2Severability
5.10.1.1 you must notify us in writing, within seven days of receipt of the
Lot(s), that in your view the Lot concerned is a Forgery;
If any part of these Terms and Condition is found by any court to be
invalid, illegal or unenforceable, that part may be discounted and the rest
of the conditions shall continue to be valid and enforceable to the fullest
extent permitted by law.
5.10.1.2 you must then return the item to us within fourteen days from
receipt of the Lot(s), in the same condition as at the auction date; and
9.3Force majeure
5.10.1.3 as soon as possible following return of the Lot, you must produce evidence satisfactory to us that the Lot is a Forgery and that you are able
to transfer good title to us, free from any third party claims.
We shall have no liability to you if we are prevented from, or delayed in
performing, our obligations under these Terms and Conditions or from
carrying on our business by acts, events, omissions or accidents beyond
our reasonable control, including (without limitation) strikes, lock-outs
or other industrial disputes (whether involving our workforce or the workforce of any other party), failure of a utility service or transport network,
act of God, war, riot, civil commotion, malicious damage, compliance with
any law or governmental order, rule, regulation or direction, accident, breakdown of plant or machinery, fire, flood, storm or default of suppliers or
subcontractors.
5.10.2 In no circumstances shall we be required to pay you any more
than the amount paid by you for the Lot concerned and you shall have no
claim for interest.
5.10.3 The benefit of this guarantee is not capable of being transferred,
and is solely for the benefit of the person to whom the original invoice was
made out by us in respect of the Lot when sold and who, since the sale, has
remained the owner of the Lot without disposing of any interest in it to any
third party.
9.4Waiver
5.10.4 We shall be entitled to rely on any scientific or other process to
establish that the Lot is not a Forgery, whether or not such process was
used or in use at the date of the auction.
9.4.1
A waiver of any right under these Terms and Conditions is only
effective if it is in writing and it applies only to the circumstances for which
it is given. No failure or delay by a party in exercising any right or remedy

3 PRIMA DELL’ASTA
3.4.1
Se desiderate ottenere un parere peritale od un Certificato di
Autenticità di qualsiasi lotto (a parte Lotti misti o Lotti contenenti francobolli non descritti), dovete richiederlo per iscritto non piu’ tardi di quarantotto ore prima dell’orario fissato per l’inizio della prima sessione d’asta.
Se dai noi accettata, tale richiesta avrà lo stesso effetto di formale notifica
dell’intenzione di mettere in discussione la genuinità o la descrizione del
Lotto per gli scopi previsti dall’articolo 5.10 (Rimborso in caso di Falso)
delle presenti Condizioni generali di vendita e di conseguenza le previsioni
dell’articolo 5.10 troveranno applicazione.
3.1 Esame dei beni
Vi preghiamo di esaminare personalmente tutti i beni a cui è interessato,
prima che l’asta abbia luogo. Reports sullo stato del pezzo sono generalmente disponibili su richiesta. Noi non forniamo alcuna garanzia se non in
relazione a Falsi cosi’ come stabilito all’articolo 5.10 di queste Condizioni
generali di vendita.
3.2Descrizioni del catalogo
3.2.1
Le affermazioni da noi riportate nel catalogo o nei nostri reports, o fatte verbalmente o per iscritto in altri contesti, riguardanti l’autore, l’origine, la data, l’età, dimensione, materiale, attribuzione, genuinità,
provenienza, condizione o prezzo di vendita stimato di ogni Lotto, sono
meramente affermazioni di opinione sulle quali non deve essere fatto affidamento come affermazioni derivanti da fatti certi e definitivi. Le illustrazioni del catalogo fungono solo da guida e su di esse non si dovrebbe fare
affidamento per determinare la tonalità od il colore di ogni Lotto o per
rilevare imperfezioni. Con riferimento alla stima del prezzo di vendita, non
si dovrebbe fare affidamento su di essa in quanto affermazione che questo
prezzo sarà quello a cui il Lotto sarà venduto o che questo sia il suo effettivo valore per ogni altro scopo.
3.2.2
Molti pezzi sono di un’età o natura tali da pregiudicare che possano essere in perfette condizioni e alcune descrizioni nel catalogo o fornite
attraverso i nostri reports, indicano la presenza di danni e/o restauri. Noi
forniamo queste informazioni solo come indicazione e la loro assenza non
implica che un pezzo sia esente da difetti o restauri, né l’indicazione di
particolari difetti implica l’assenza di taluni altri.
3.2.3
A parte quanto previsto all’articolo 5.10, ed in assenza di frode, né il Venditore, né noi, né alcuno dei nostri impiegati od agenti sono
responsabili della correttezza di qualsiasi dichiarazione relativa all’autore,
origine, data, età, attribuzione, genuinità o provenienza di ogni Lotto, né
3.4.2
La notifica di richiesta di un parere peritale o di un Certificato
di Autenticità deve contenere il motivo di tale richiesta e specificare l’indicazione del perito da Voi proposto che sarà soggetto al nostro accordo. Ci
riserviamo il diritto, a nostra discrezione, di rifiutare la richiesta di parere
peritale o di Certificato di Autenticità, incluso (senza limitazione) il caso in
cui l’esperto proposto non sia da noi conosciuto.
3.4.3
Se accettiamo la richiesta di parere peritale o di Certificato di
Autenticità, sottoporremo il Lotto al Comitato di esperti. Voi riconoscete
ed accettate che il tempo necessario al Comitato di esperti per emettere un
parere, varierà in dipendenza delle specifiche corcostanze ed in ogni caso
sarà fuori dal nostro controllo.
3.4.4
Normalmente non accettiamo richieste di extension sulle condizioni del Lotto. Ogni Lotto descritto nel catalogo come avente errori o
difetti, non puo’ essere ritornato anche se un parere peritale od un Certificato di Autenticità indichi la presenza di altri errori o difetti non inclusi
nella descrizione del catalogo, a parte il caso di Falso.
3.4.5
Se Spink dovesse accettare la richiesta di extension sulla base
delle precedenti previsioni di questo paragrafo, questo fatto potrà essere
dichiarato dal Banditore durante l’asta prima della vendita del Lotto.
3.4.6
Va considerato che ogni francobollo accompagnato da un Certificato di Autenticità è venduto sulla base solamente di detto certificato e
non sulla base di qualsiasi altra descrizione o garanzia relativa all’autenti-
WWW.SPINK.COM
cità. Non saranno accettate richieste di extension su tale francobollo ed il
reso del medesimo non sarà accettato.
4.7Convertitore di valuta
In alcune aste sarà operativo un convertitore di valute basato sui tassi di
cambio a noi quotati da BSI Sa o su qualsiasi altro appropriato tasso da noi
determinato all’apertura della giornata di svolgimento dell’asta. Le offerte
avverrano nella valuta da noi stabilita. Il convertitore di valuta puo’ non
essere sempre affidabile ed errori possono accadere fuori dal nostro controllo sia con riguardo alla correttezza del numero di Lotto che appare sul
convertitore che della valuta estera equivalente alla valuta in cui l’asta viene
battuta. Noi non saremo responsabili nei vostri confronti per perdite subite
per aver seguito il convertitore di valuta.
3.4.7
Se il parere peritale o del Certificato di Autenticità dovessero
dimostrare la fondatezza della richiesta di extension, tutte le spese per ottenere i medesimi saranno a nostro carico. In caso contrario, saranno totalmente a carico vostro.
4 IN ASTA
4.1Rifiuto di ammissione
Le nostre vendite si svolgono di solito in nostri locali o locali sui quali
abbbiamo il controllo in relazione alla vendita e quindi abbiamo il diritto,
esercitabile a nostra completa discrezione, di rifiutare l’ammissione ai locali
o la partecipazione ad un’asta.
4.8Immagini video
In alcune aste sarà presente uno schermo video. Errori possono accadere
in connessione a cio’ e noi non saremo responsabili nei vostri confronti sia
con riferimento alla corrispondenza dell’immagine del Lotto in corso di
agggiudicazione durante l’asta che per la qualità dell’immagine in quanto
riproduzione dell’originale.
4.2Registrazione
Voi dovete compilare e firmare un modulo di registrazione e consentire
la vostra identificazione prima di fare offerte in asta. Vi informiamo che
usualmente richiediamo agli acquirenti di accettare una verifica del loro
merito creditizio.

un’offerta per quei lotti. Informazioni in merito saranno annunciate sul
nostro sito.
4.9Incrementi delle offerte

invio postale o via email), Voi sarete considerati come se steste agendo in

ore prima dell’asta. Se riceviamo offerte su commissione su un particolare
Lotto per ammontari identici ed in asta tali offerte sono le piu’ alte per
quel Lotto, il medesimo sarà aggiudicato alla persona la cui offerta è stata
ricevuta per prima. Le offerte su commissione sono da noi prese in carico
unitamente agli altri impegni che dobbiamo svolgere durante la vendita,
e la conduzione dell’asta puo’ essere tale da non consentirci di fare le offerte come richiesto. Poiché questo è un servizio che noi offriamo gratis a
potenziali acquirenti secondo le clausole stabilite, non possiamo accettare
alcuna responsabilità per mancanze nella esecuzione di una offerta su commissione. Dovreste pertanto sempre partecipare personalmente all’asta se
desiderate avere certezza delle offerte fatte.
4.10.1 Il gruppo Spink si riserva il diritto di fare offerte ed acquistare
Lotti in proprio.
4.11 Discrezione del banditore
Il banditore ha il diritto a sua assoluta discrezione di rifiutare qualsiasi offerta, di far avanzare le offerte nel modo che ritiene opportuno, di ritirare o
dividere qualsiasi Lotto, di raggruppare due o piu’ Lotti e, in caso di errore
o controversia, di rimettere nuovamente qualsiasi Lotto in offerta..
4.12 Offerte aggiudicate
Soggetto alla discrezione del banditore, il colpo del suo martelletto segna
l’accettazione dell’offerta piu’ alta, e la conclusione di un contratto di vendita tra Voi ed il Venditore.
4.5Offerte via internet
4.13 Accordi post vendita
Una ulteriore comodità che offriamo ai nostri clienti è quella di poter fare
offerte attraverso internet. Noi non saremo responsabili per errori o mancanze nella esecuzione di offerte fatte attraverso internet, incluso, senza
limitazioni, errori o mancanze causate da (i) interruzioni della connessione
internet da qualsivoglia delle parti per qualsivoglia ragione; (ii) un malfunzionamento o problemi del software per fare le offerte online e/o (iii)
malfunzionamento o problemi della vostra connessione internet, computer

The Unused “Dale-Lichtenstein Position 51”

(«)
1862, “Escuditos” 15c. blue, position 51, displaying the famous “without accent on “U” variety,
which only occurred in one position in the sheet of 70, graced by excellent margins which are equally
balanced on all four sides, unused without gum. This stamp possess the added significance, in contrast
to other examples known, of exhibiting two “hairline” non-constant flaws, of which one forming a circle surrounding the “NT” of “Argentina”, with another semi-circle at left of the “E” of “Argentina”.
Two minute thin spots of no importance. This item, together with other 41 rarities of South America, was
exhibited in the assembly of gems selected to illustrate the only colour plate included in the catalogue of the
famous Dale-Lichtenstein collection dedicated to South America; this rarity was then estimated at 1,500
US$ (5-7 May 1970 sale). Just 386 examples of this variety were printed; Víctor Kneitschel suggested, in his
catalogue of 1958, the immense rarity of this position 51 in unsued condition by stating only to have found
two examples. Fewer than five single unused examples are known. Cert. Pini Achaval - Mautalén.

The Unique Item Bearing Three Imperforate “Rivadavia” Issues

()
1867, sixth additional printing 10c. green and 15c. blue, ample to predominantly large margins, the
15c. denomination just cut into at base, together with seventh printing 5c. rose, large margined example, used on registered cover front from Buenos Aires to Santa Fé, paying a single registered rate
with 25 centavos being applied for the registration fee, tied by dotted cancels (7x7) matching cds
alongside of 3 August 1867. Receipt docket and signature on reverse by the addressee, this practice being compulsory for registered mail as per postal regulations. Illustrated on page 277 of the Kneitschel
catalogue of 1958. Front folded and strengthened in places, clear away of the franking.
The authenticity of this item gave rise to a debate in Argentina regarding whether one or both stamps of the
sixth additional printing did not belong to the cover. As a measure to solve this debate, a depth study and
research through a spectrometric analysis of the inks was made. The conclusions left no room for doubt and
the genuineness of this item has been declared with all confidence.
The only cover known exhibiting three imperforate values of the very significant “Rivadavia”
issue, representing the three denominations of this issue. One of the gems of Argentine philately.
Cert. Holcombe and P.F. Ex Schatzkès, Depetris and Hubbard.

1858-1975. A nearly complete and most outstanding collection, beginning with “Confederación”
featuring usual large multiples including the highest denomination, as well as few genuine infrequent
usages; “Escuditos” with an interesting array of cancellations with some rare examples, some multiples
and one cover including a rare 5c. and 10c. bi-colour franking; “Rivadavias”, with these issues being
very well represented by a magnificent assembly featuring all printings and including a partly large
duplication, an interesting array of cancellations and some covers, with several important examples including first printing 5c. (9), of which one is accompanied by a 1954 V. Kneitschel certificate in which
the famous expert states this example to have been used to illustrate his catalogue (it also appears in
his 1958 edition, “tomo I”), the first printing being also represented by 10c. used (1) and unused (2),
15c. used (3) and unused (1), sixth additional printing with 10 c. unsued (2) and 15 c. unused (1),
mainly boasting a most unusual and outstanding condition; other important rarities in later issues are
the four inverted centres of the “Liberty Seated” issue with the 1p., 5p., 10p. and 20p. denominations; “Centenario” issue with, except for the 50c., all inverted centres extant; as well as the famous
1917 San Martín with centre inverted in block of four (two items known). The collection is dedicated
to the general issues (from the “Confederación” period), although some locals are also contained,
in fine to very fine condition for several desirable examples of “Barquitos”, “Cabecitas” and Corrientes. Duplicates, even for scarce values, and multiples as well, make up this assembly. Imperforates
in pairs and a wide range of varieties can be found throughout the collection after the classic period,
with some examples not being catalogued by Guillermo Jalil in his catalogue or being rare. Another
section is deemed to proofs, essays and specimens including several and desirable items. For all these
characteristics, we vividly recommend an accurate viewing. Several of the important rarities are signed
or accompanied by certificates. A wonderful lot of enormous catalogue value in predominantly very
fine quality throughout.

1867, 5c. violet, a marginal block of eight from the left of the sheet, positions 37-40 / 49-52, showing
characteristic hairline flaws in positions 50 to 52, pastel shade and good margins, unused with original
gum which is cracked in places. Some small paper adherences and horizontal crease between adhesives
which is opened in a small place. Blocks of this value are very scarce, and this has the added significance
of exhibiting a complete-sheet margin (a most infrequent feature in the very few other marginal multiples, having sheet-margins reduced). Scott 3.

1854, 5c. reddish red-brown, a large margined example, slightly cancelled by target cancel, paying the
inland rate on cover front from Santiago to Washington, endorsed “Pr. Steamer via Panama”, with
red “Santiago/31 Enero 54” c.d.s., carried from Valparaiso to Panama by the “Bolivia” of the PSNC
with fine “Vapor Bolivia/P” handstamp (Doublet BOL2) in its latest application so far recorded (uses
were previously known in 1849-53; United States was the only destination other than the West Pacific in South America combined with these “vapor” PSNC postmarks, which were not stamped on
mail to Europe), following embark on U.S. vessel or contract carrier and “Steam Ship/20/Cts.” due
marking on delivery for mail carried in excess of 2,500 miles. The date of delivery of this stamp to the
Santiago P.O. was 28.1.1854, with this item of 31 January 1854 featuring the earliest usage recorded
of the Desmadryl issue; the rare PSNC postmark and the scarcity of this foreign destination further
enhances the desirability of this significant showpiece. SFC 3.

Brian Moorhouse states in his certificate: “This is a late use of the Desmadryl stamps. However, this is probably
accounted for by the fact that Nacimiento is a small town situated about 50 miles south-east of Concepcion and
its quite likely that such a small place may well have a stock of older stamps to be used up”.

1855, pale red-brown, spectacular horizontal block of ten from the upper left corner of the sheet,
positions 1-5 / 13-17, “ivory head” impression, very good margins, clearly showing the five marginal
rules and “C” of “Correos” of one of the marginal inscriptions which all are part of the watermark.
The absence of bluing in selvage demonstrates bluing chemical (potassium ferricyanide) only added
to printing ink. It is believed that this multiple originates from a rejected sheet which was not sent to Chile
and was preserved in the Perkins Bacon’s archives in London. Some imperfections including tears, of little consequence. A very rare and unique multiple of ten. SFC 7. Ex Hall and Errázuriz.

1855, 5c. red-brown, clear to very large margins showing frame line of upper adjoining adhesive, used

Santiago red c.d.s. alongside, paying the single inland rate to port of embarkation at Valparaiso, showing superb “Foreign Countries/ART-20” Anglo-French accountancy marking in red, accompanied by
“21” décimes due h.s. representing the amount credited to Great Britain up to 7 1/2 grams. French
entry at Calais as well as British and French transits on reverse.
Beginning January 1, 1856, unpaid letters from the west coast of South America sent via Panama to
Great Britain were forwarded to France under newly-added Article 20 of the Anglo-French Postal Convention of 1843. After a mere three weeks in use, the Article 20 accountancy marking was suspended, with
dates of use (entry in France) being recorded on 5.1 and 17.1.1856.
Transatlantic mail in this printing is very scarce, with this exceptional mail representing the only
known imperforate-issues Article 20 (via Panama) cover from Chile to France. An important item
for both collectors of Chilean philately and ‘via Panama’ postal history. Cert. Moorhouse. SFC 7.

1859, Feb. 8. Entire letter from Chañarcillo to Pabellón, franked at single rate with “Estancos” 10c.,
well margined diagonal half, beautifully tied by mute square cancel featuring vertical and horizontal
crossed lines resulting in small squares, showing “Chañarcillo” straight-line handstamp alongside.
The origin of this grid postmark is unknown, which is absolutely exceptional as the only mute cancel recorded,
originating from a Chilean locality and not exhibiting the concentric rings, used on the imperforate classic
issues. It can not be confirmed with full confidence that it originated from Chañarcillo, since it might be
also applied on arrival at Pabellón (the two covers known with this postmark are addressed to this locality,
and both originate from Chañarcillo).
The finest of the two covers recorded exhibiting this grid cancel, this being unique with the
addition of the Chañarcillo postmark. One of the most fascinating and rare usages of Chilean
classic philately. Ex Dupont and Menéndez.

desirable uses in Chilean philately; only two covers are the proof of existence of any usage in the
Elqui department during the pre-adhesive and classic periods, with just this example exhibiting
adhesives. Moreover, the manuscript cancel on the imperforate classic issues is very exceptional. SFC 18

The Earliest Usage Known of Colombian Philately
detail
657

1859, 10c. orange-buff, stone A, clear to mainly very large margins showing three complete dividing
lines between transfers, on cover addressed to the Commissioner of War at Bogotá, originating from
Guataquí and dispatched in the neighbouring locality of Ambalema, where the stamp was tied by superb
“Ambalema/Franca” double oval in blue. Dated inside 31st July 1859, as per “visto bueno” (approved
to be sent) and signed “Eduardo Céspedes” as representative by the district town hall at Guataquí, this
being a small locality close to Ambalema and also located on the right shore of the Magdalena River.
As a single weight letter for a distance not exceeding 150 km., 10 centavos were paid.
According to the research by the renowned expert Dieter Bortfeldt, which is based on original documents,
the first stamps of Colombian philately were dispatched on 27 July 1859 (original note published by Dieter
Bortfeldt on page 1 of his “Colombia - 150 Años del Primer Sello Postal” handbook). The new adhesives,
comprising the 2 1/2, 5, 10 and 20 centavos denominations were in principle to be placed on sale on 1st
September 1859. In this case, on 31 July, this stamp was applied when the postage stamps had just arrived
and probably rules or documents for its first date of usage were not known to postal employees.
On the other hand, on 23 July 1859, the Secretary of the Treasury issued a decree in execution of the law
of 27 April, in which it is defined the issue of postal adhesives. This decree, in its Art. 101, states: “It shall
be the duty of the Central Postal Administration to furnish stamps, as soon as possible, to all the District
Treasury offices, in sufficient quantities for the requirements of each office and the subordinate offices dependent upon it. It shall be the duty of each District Administrator to provide stamps as soon as possible and
in sufficient quantities to all the subordinate post offices under his supervision”. On 24 July the contract
for the printing of the stamps was signed after having been granted to the printers Celestino and Jerónimo
Martínez, and only three days later the first postage stamps had been already received by the government
and also on that day dispatched. All these features demonstrate the urgency with which the government
acted upon so that the postage stamps would be in service as soon as possible, and thus leading to believe that
it was an urgent need of stamps which would have been used before 1st September.
The earliest usage of Colombian philately, pre-dating by one month the 1st September 1859,
previously believed to be the earliest item known. The immense significance of this item is also reinforced by the fact that franked items used in August have not so far survived. One of the great gems
of Colombia. Cert. Bortfeldt. Scott 4.

1859, 20c. bright ultramarine, stone A, just shaved in one corner of the octagonal design, clear to large

single rate not exceeding 10 grams for a distance between 450 and 1,350 km on cover to Bogotá with
its content separated in a further lettersheet inside. The content is datelined “Santamarta Sete. 1 de
1859”, on 1st September 1859, this being the official first day of issue (see also the previous lot).
One of two covers recorded exhibiting stamps used on the first day of issue, both representing the
second earliest date of usage, and possessing a characteristic of great significance and outstanding
consequence in America: these two Colombian items are the only first day covers of any American first issue. Cert. Bortfeldt. Scott 6.

1859, 10c. orange-chesnut, stone A, with part sheet-margin at left and excellent margins on other

“La Mesa/Franca” pre-adhesive oval handstamp, on entire letter addressed to the General Postmaster
at Bogotá by Postmaster in La Mesa. The franking covered the double weight letter rate for a route not
exceeding 150 km. Fewer than five examples off cover are believed to exist, with this item representing the only usage known on cover of this spectacular partial impression, of even more significance as the only first issue cover recorded with a prominent variety. Cert. Bortfeldt. Scott 4.

the architect of the famous “Metternich System” and its Congresses, establishing an international system of
reactionary governments dedicated to maintaining a set of European boundaries, preventing revolutions
and changes in government, and stopping any one power from becoming too powerful. Metternich received the
title of Prince (“Fürst”) of the Austrian Empire in 1813 as a proof of esteem for his services. 1835, October
19, entire letter from Vienna addressed to Count Giulio Ottolini Visconti in Venice, with the address

ASSEMBLY DEDICATED TO THE PROVISIONAL CANCELLATIONS ON EMBOSSED STAMPS
30’000
1853-1864. An extraordinary group comprising of 79 stamps and 2 covers, including the four first
classic issues of Portuguese philately, which are also represented by better values such as the first issue
100r. As a result of its rarity and high difficulty to find, all usages are worthy of individual listing in
an important auction (consequently we vivid recommend a complete viewing). The most important
highlights, with some of them being unique, are:
D. Maria Issue: “170” straight line of Portalegre (a provisional cancel without bars), “Porte Pago”
oval handstamp in blue, circular “Anadia” (blue), framed “Arcos de Valdevez”, “Aveiro” oval, “Covilhã” straight line, framed “Fafe”, Faro mute cancellation of concentric rings, framed “Lamego” oval
in blue, “Lumiar” oval,”Moncorvo” oval, “Niza” in manuscript, “Portel” straight-line, “Vidigueira”
circle, “Faro” oval as accompanying handstamp, “Va. do Conde” oval, “Chaves” oval (on 100r.), also
with “Tavira” and “Valladares” framed hanstamps, each used on cover.
D. Pedro V “Straight Hair” Issue: “Montemor O Velho” oval, cirular mute of crossed bars, “Cabeceiras” in green, framed “Maiorca”, 50r. block of six with “Covilhã” straight line which is the largest
multiple cancelled by a pre-adhesive cancellation.
D. Pedro V “Curly Hair” Issue: “Chaves” oval framed provisional.
D. Luís I Issue: “Oliveira” oval (Oliveira de Azemeis), “Regoa” oval.
The natural beauty of the embossed stamps of Portugal is enhanced by the nominative cancellations used in
the pre-adhesive period; these usages were provisional, this being a fact to understand its rarity as they were
very scarcely used. In fact, these usages contrast with the heavy numerical cancellation, extensively used,
with its purpose being to deface the stamp.
A wonderful and unique opportunity to acquire an extremely rare assembly which would be represented in a most difficult, prestigious and internationally award-winning one-frame exhibit.
Several items originate from famous collectors such as González García, Leote, Frazão, Pereira, Felino
and Salgado.
923

1802-85, group of 11 covers, of which four are stampless with pre-adehsive markings, including better

“1st January 1858” covers, this is one of the three items known documenting the earliest usage
of Russian philately; moreover, this piece exhibits the only usage known of this erroneous 1857 date.

In the case of shipping lots abroad, the Swiss VAT will not be charged. VAT and other charges are subject to the
regulation of each country and are on the responsibility of the buyer. In caso di spedizione di merce all’estero l’IVA svizzera non è addebitata. L’IVA e gli eventuali dazi a cui la merce sarà sottoposta
nel paese in cui viene esportata sono invece a totale carico dell’acquirente.
The above mentioned shipping charges are valid only up to 500 gr. Above 500 gr., for bulky parcels charges will be calculated individually.
I costi di spedizione sopraindicati sono applicati per un peso fino a 500 gr. Oltre i 500 gr. e per spedizioni voluminose verranno presi accordi particolari.
Insurance charges are calculated as a percentage of the hammer price including charges and commissions.
Le spese assicurative sono calcolate in percentuale sul prezzo di aggiudicazione commissioni e spese incluse.
Collecting lots at the sale
Purchasers who decide to collect their lots at Spink Switzerland’s office have to pay swiss VAT. VAT will be refunded by sending us the
export document cancelled by the Swiss customs.
Ritiro della merce da parte del cliente
In caso di ritiro della merce da parte del cliente in asta o presso i nostri uffici, l’IVA svizzera sarà addebitata in fattura e successivamente
rimborsata al ricevimento del documento di esportazione timbrato dalla dogana svizzera.
Avviso per la clientela residente in Italia
Grazie alla rappresentanza fiscale che abbiamo in Italia, siamo in grado di offrire il servizio di sdoganamento e pagamento dell’IVA
italiana per conto del cliente, in modo tale da rendere la spedizione e consegna dei lotti acquistati più comoda (gli adempimenti doganali di importazione vengono effettuati da noi), più veloce e sicura (le consegne vengono effettuate tramite corriere blindato). Questo
servizio comporta i seguenti costi di spedizione ed assicurazione:
Valore Spedizione (fino a €)
