Stuart Hardy Collection - Part 3

Page 3

Welcome to Phoenix Auctions No.24 It gives us immense pleasure to present to you the third and final auction of Stuart Hardy’s fabulous Commonwealth of Australia Collection. This Auction has a much broader range of lots than the previous two, it encompasses the remainder of the Australian Commonwealth issues from KGVI to the early 1980s decimal issues. As well there are strong sections of Postage Dues and Booklets. There are also a few Roos and KGV issues, which for various reasons, didn’t make it into the first two auctions.

Stuart collected these issues with great enthusiasm and as you go through the catalogue you will notice imprints, monograms, plate numbers, plate flaws, imperfs and missing colours. You will also see many large mint blocks.

The auction finishes with Stuart’s non-Australian Commonwealth collections, including his important collection of Japanese occupation issues from Ambon. We have enlisted the help of Stuart's Family to provide a brief overview of Stuart Hardy, his life and of his passion for collecting. Mr David Alm will open the Auction with a short talk about Stuart’s importance to his local South Australian philatelic community.

Stuart Edward Hardy Stuart Hardy amassed one of the greatest collections of Australian stamps in philatelic history. This was the product of a labour of love over nine decades. Stuart was born just before midnight on the 31st of December 1914. He first became interested in postage stamps at the age of seven. In 1926, when he was twelve, his parents took the rare adventure of a six month overseas trip, visiting Europe, the Middle East, Asia and America by ship. Stuart became absorbed in collecting the stamps and postcards sent home by his parents from the exotic places they visited. Throughout his life he maintained an interest in the collection of postcards and correspondence. He became a keen traveller, and a passionate philatelist. Stuart qualified and worked as a pharmacist until the outbreak of World War Two, when he immediately enlisted. With the bombing of Darwin, Stuart was transferred to Katherine. He was promoted to Lieutenant, responsible for securing and organising all of the medical supplies for a field hospital. Stuart served in New Guinea and Borneo, where he was part of the ground force landing at Balikpapan. On army leave during 1944, Stuart married Beryl Gardiner after a seven year romance. They were married for fifty-four years, and had four children. After the war, Stuart used his army savings to purchase a small chemist shop which through long hours and great dedication, he built into a highly successful pharmacy. Most of his customers were pensioners or other people experiencing hard times, and he became their friendly and respected adviser. He worked in his business until the age of sixty- eight, and never took a day off for any illness. Philately was Stuart's constant passion in life. Before the war he had joined the South Australian Philatelic Society. He pursued his philatelic interests during World War 2, as opportunities arose, putting together an important collection of Japanese Occupation Dutch East Indies stamps and letters, exchanged with the postmaster at Ambon for tins of bully beef. This collection is to be found at the end of this auction. In the post war years, Stuart continued to build and refine his collection. In 1970 he won his first gold medal at the Cook Exhibition in Sydney. He again won a gold medal in the National Exhibition in Adelaide. He also competed and judged at a number of international exhibitions in New Zealand and Japan. Stuart was a proud life member of, and donor to, the Philatelic Society of South Australia and the Southern Districts Philatelic Society, and he enjoyed the companionship of fellow philatelists who became life-long friends. Stuart was widely respected as a philatelic authority, and particularly recognised for his willingness to be consulted by people at all levels of expertise, happily sharing his knowledge and insights, and encouraging participation in the hobby he loved. After the setback of Beryl’s death in 2000, Stuart made the most of his last decade, remaining positive, self-reliant and sharp witted. He was still putting together lots for club auctions at the age of ninety-four He passed away peacefully on April 16th 2011, aged ninety-six. This wonderful collection is Stuart Hardy's legacy to Australian philately.

How to Get the Most from The Phoenix Website. While quite a number of our clients make full use of the many benefits our website provides, it is obvious that most do not. So we are taking this opportunity to reintroduce these benefits to you. The homepage provides an introduction to the current auction, or highlights of the next auction as appropriate and there are menus to provide different ways of accessing the auction lots. Within each auction menu there are six submenus: 1. In Lot Order - this provides you with a lot order index to the auction by section headings. Simply click on the section and it will take you straight to that part of the catalogue where you can see each lot in order with its full description and all its images. The estimate and starting price and a box for your bids are also displayed. Wherever the starting price is displayed it is always exactly up to date. 2. By Country - this provides a cross reference listing by country. You don’t need to go backwards and forwards from the index to the catalogue listing anymore. 3. By Topic or Theme - the same as by Country but organised by topic or theme, and there are hundreds of themes. 4. Description Search - this is used for wild card searching through auction lots. This is very powerful and to get the most out of it please email us with search requirements so that we can set it up for you. 5. Image Gallery - this displays every image in lot order. It is a great way to browse an auction. 6. Bulk Bid Entry - this enables you to enter your bids as a batch. So when you have worked out all your bids you can just enter them on this screen rather than finding each lot and entering them one at a time. When you sign on with your Client Code and Password the full benefits are opened up to you. There are 2 entries at the top of the auction submenues. These are: By Collecting Interest - this shows all the lots which match your collecting interests. My Image Gallery - this provides you with just the images for the lots you are interested in. We ask you for your collecting interest so that we can provide you with these quick and easy ways to view just those lots that are likely to be of interest to you. Menus on the top right will vary from person to person and can include any of the following:1. My Details - this is where you change your details and preferences 2. My Auction Bidsheet - this is the most important screen we have. It appears the instant you enter a bid and it allows you to manage all your bids from the one screen. It always shows the exact status of all your bids. 3. My Auction Vendor Lots - When you are a vendor this screen shows all your lots in this auction with their current status. You always know exactly the situation with your lots. 4. My Mail Register - this shows you the details of every mailing with dates of mailing, registration numbers, mailing addresses and which invoices are involved. It also tells you whether just an invoice was sent or whether your lots were sent as well. Now you don’t need to call us to see if your lots have been mailed. It is all here for you when you need it. 5. My Invoice Register - this provides the details of every invoice and you can drill down to every lot on every invoice with their full descriptions and images. You always know exactly what is on every invoice. 6. My Receipt Register - this provides a list of every consignment we have received from you. It shows you every lot from each consignment with its full description and images, what auction it was sold in and if it has not been sold what auction it is in. When you have large consignments spread over multiple auctions it is just the screen to enable you to keep track of everything.

HOW TO GET THE MOST FROM OUR CATALOGUE

[These notes are offered as a guide to understanding the information given as symbols.] 1. 2.

3.

Firstly, we have the lot number. If it has a P after the lot number then ithe lots is illustrated in the catalogue. All lots have at least 1 illustration on our website, and many will have multiple illustrations. The second column contains a symbol, which represents the item(s) in the lot: ** Mint, unmounted o.g. * Mint, mounted o.g. V Used, Very fine. F Used, Fine G Used, Good H Used, Heavy U Used,quality unspecified W Unused, no gum D Piece * Cover, card or S Stamp (“Postmarks” lots) PS Postal Stationery B Booklets or Booklet Panes The 3rd column contains the general description of the lot and should be self-evident with one exception. When a catalogue value is extrapolated the value is followed by a ↕, e.g. $2000↕. Typical extrapolations are 40% of the catalogue value for hinged mint when the catalogue only provides values for MUH, 200% for MUH when the catalogue value is for mint hinged. The following notes apply specifically to postmark description. Whenever possible postmarks will be described in full, except that the top portion of a postmark is only spelt out when it differs from the post office name or requires some clarification. Bracketed shaded text within a description indicates that these characters cannot be read, while greyed characters are hard to read or are only partly present, as is the case when part of the postmark is on the edge of a stamp. Very large or small letters are represented by large and small fonts respectively; small fonts are particularly used to indicate the presence of small nylon wheels in the datestamp. The following example illustrates these points: '[POST] OFFICE/21DE86/GARAH'. After the forscription of the postmark we will indicate the overall quality of the cancel with a bracketed 2 character code. The first character is A-D where A is a fine clear postmark through to D which is barely legible. The second character is a number from 1 to 4 where 1 is complete including all the frame through to 4 where only 25% or less of the cancel is visible. For exceptional strikes we will further qualify the quality code with a ‘+’ and for items which are light etc the code will be qualified with a ‘-’. For postmark lots the condition of the postmark is the most important aspect of our descriptions. Minor defects in the stamp or cover are mentioned only when the value of the item is significant. Naturally, major defects will always be described.

4.

The symbols in the second column, and the illustrations of lots, form part of the lot description.

5.

The last column is the estimate. The reserve is almost always 75% of the estimate and bids below the reserve will not usually be considered.

6.

No GST is added to the hammer price. The vendors have accepted responsibility for any tax payable.

7.

We use the following standardised abbreviations: o.g. original gum opt(d) overprint(ed) d/s datestamp cds circular datestamp h/s handstamp mss manuscript; handwritten ERD earliest recorded date LRD latest recorded date o/o opened-out RLabel registration label M/S(s) miniature sheet(s) PPC picture postcard impt imprint mtd mounted provl provisional wmk watermark LDL large dateline (postmarks) SDL small dateline (postmarks) TLC,TRC,LLC,LRC Top Left Cnr, Top Right Cnr, Lower Left Cnr, Lower Right Cnr
