Anyone have a Rodney Perry Auction catalogue 203, from 1999?

I have some older ones but Murphy's Law of course ... not this one among them!

My much missed friend Rod of course had a set, but sadly those are now sold I understand. :roll:

Bought an Estate which had Perry invoices, and the relevant items still on Perry auction stockcards.

Have a few that I have no idea why, but $100s were paid for them, over 20 years back, so the key will be in Rod's lot description - thanks in advance! :mrgreen:

Glen.

Superbo Rod ... can I please trouble you to scan or transcribe the wording for lot #309?

The three above were invoiced at about $A250, over 20 years back. WHY???

Three Airletters/Aerograms from oz Banks to Greece. One from Tenant Creek, Northern Territory. All with bank forms and receipts printed inside.

They are the unstamped FORMULAR types. Why banks used those I have no clue. And WHY would they sell for that?

Rod might have come up with some written reason these were scarce - I'd very gladly take half that, 21 years on, but this is not my field. (Stock 315AJL) :mrgreen:

The description will not be of any help.

That 6 letter word terminating the description was the clincher?

Superb .. many thanks Rod. :)

Dopey me had not even noticed the 2 pre-Decimals were from Darwin, so that is a big factor too I think. :mrgreen:

PBR helpfully advises elsewhere the Central one, with 10d Queen, Approval Style 37 is not often seen - and that was not even illustrated in Perry sale cat. Anyway with an est $150, clearly there was a bit of bidding, even then, to get it to where it was sold at invoice $A250.

Glen,

The approval number 54 is quite often seen, as the owner of the approval number sold the forms to banks. The approval number 37 has not seen that much use, in my opinion.
Cheers,

Added them to stock today for $150 (Stock 315AGL) ... a rather cool trio I think. :)
