Railway Philately auction UK, 22nd August 2022 online now.

Post by W5LDY »

Horners Auctioneers of Acle, Norfolk, UK have an important one owner auction on the 22nd August comprising 323 lots of Railway stamps, postal history, together with some literature and ephemera.

Online catalogue with live bidding available here:
https://bid.horners.co.uk/auctions/8272/srho10129

There are some extensive collections and accumulations of material which is seldom seen in such quantities, plus some scarce to rare items lotted singly.

The main focus of the sale is GB and Ireland but there are a number of Australian and other overseas lots.

I will add a few more images before the sale.

That is true, the owners main collection was sold in 2015 at Grosvenor Auctons. I believe there was Iraq content in that auction.
