September 2012 Ebay Report

Top 3 Items of the Month

We kick of this month with this spectacular franking on a large part envelope (reduced at bottom). It features two sets of the Jubilee (at least all that were available in 1890) all tied by the Uniform Penny Postage Jubilee cancels from the South Kensington museum, with a piece of the postal stationery affixed at the bottom. Exhibitions as a thematic is a very collectable area of philately, hence why this item fetched no less than £400.09!

From the same vendor was this attractive set of three of the British East Africa values. Each with a Knope certificate, they didn’t stay on eBay long at a buy-it-now price of £750.

As destination mail goes for the Jubilee issue, Chile is far from being the most common in South America. The added interest in this cover also comes from the fact that it is addressed to the “Submarine Cable Office”. Attractively franked with a 5d and 2 1/2d Jubilees tied by Croydon cds, this cover only fetched one bidder at £65.
