Devotees of our bulk Admiral lots will find some more lots of 2 cent reds and 3 cent browns in this sale. The cupboard is nearly empty so if you like this stuff now is the time to bid!! We have also branched out to offer bulk lots of Small Queen stamps and this sale also includes a number of highly specialised bulk lots of individual stamps from the 1859 series to the Map Stamp. These all come from old time collections that have not been on the market for many decades so if you collect in these areas take a close look.
