Auctions Start Closing:Jun-02-09 09:00:00 EDT

A trio of superb rare stamp collections will anchor a special Heritage/Bennett New York City Auction, June 2-3 (with a non-floor session online on June 4) at the Four Seasons Hotel in Midtown, 57 E. 57th Street. This is the first Signature Rare Stamps Auction since Heritage Auctions and Matthew Bennett International joined forces last March to create a rare stamps authority, and the hobby of Philately has been waiting to see what bounty the partnership would yield. The auction will feature three world class collections the Richard Pounder USA Possessions Collection, the Harvey Tilles Gold Medal Award Winning Exhibit Collection Prevention of Postal Fraud and Deceit and the Lawrence Cohen Collection of 1923 Harding Memorial Issue with a supporting cast of several hundred high-quality PSE-Graded High-Quality Stamps.

This is not a bidStart auction, it is a HeritageStamps Public Auction. Your bid will be sent as an absentee bid. Even if you are the high bidder on bidStart, you may still be outbid during the Public Auction.
If you are the winner of this auction you will be notified after the auction closes.

This auction is also subject to a 19.50 % Buyer's Premium which will be added to your bid if you win.

Tip: Use the 'Min Price' slider to filter by price. It's sticky and will be saved for the next few hours.
