Phoenix Auctions - Saturday 7th December 2013

Welcome to Phoenix Auctions Auction No.26 Welcome to our last major auction for 2013. It has been a great year with many highlights and we are looking forward to 2014 when we will continuing to offer you a full range philatelic items. We would like to take this opportunity to thank both our vendors and buyers for their support during 2013 and to wish everyone a happy festive season and a prosperous and healthy New Year. This year we are closing the office from midday on 20th December and we will re-open on 5th January. During our last Boxlot Auction we trialled a new live bidding system. This was successful and we will continue to use the new system for this auction as well. The instructions are simple and are available on the What’s New column on the lefthand side of our home page. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any queries. Auction 26 is another big auction with over 1700 lots. It offers the full range of material that you come to expect from us and, while space constraints prevent us from waxing too verbosely, there are a few items that should be noted here. It is always exciting to be able to offer new discoveries for the first time. With this auction we have four significant previously unrecorded items. Lot 1412 is a wrapper cut-out with a Tasmanian ½d green embossed uprated with a ½d green Kangaroo. This was never even expected to exist and is the only State/Commonwealth combination item known. A must-have item for both Commonwealth and Tasmania Postal Stationery collectors. Lots 1323-5 are three imperforate Plate Proof blocks of 4 for the 7½d Royal Visit, the 3½d Nursing and the 3½d SA Stamp Centenary. These were all made from the initial four-on transfer plates used to make up the master plates. They have not been known to exist in private hands until now and the 7½d Royal Visit is not even known from institutional collections. Truly exceptional items for the serious collector. We are pleased to be able to offer a wide range of US Civil War material with patriotic covers and a number fascinating letters to and from serving soldiers. Continuing on the military theme we also have a number of lots from the great Emery collection of Australian World War I. Many of these are still on his original exhibition pages.

My Auction 26 Bidsheet. As mentioned earlier My Auction Bidsheet is the most important part of the website when you have placed bids in the auction, because it provides everything you need to manage your bidding. With this screen you can change your bids, add limits to ensure you don’t overspend, enter Credit Card details or other special instructions. And it always shows you the current status of your bids. The lot is highlighted when you have the top bid so it is easy to see the current situation with your bids. As well as being able to modify your bids there is a +5% button which increases your bid to 5% above the current starting price. At the bottom of this webpage there is also a field to globally increase all your bids by any percentage amount. Very useful when your bids are all way below the starting price or you want to give yourself that extra level of safety. The website is there to help you get the most when dealing with Phoenix Auctions. We hope you take a little time to use it to your advantage. Remember that we are always happy to help if you have a problem or questions.

Terms and Conditions: These are found on the rear of your printed bidsheet and on the Phoenix website. At this auction Buyer’s commission is 16.5%

Brown then took nine captives into the engine house which became known as “John Brown’s Fort”. Later that day Brown sent out his son Watson Brown & Aaron Stevens with a white flag. Watson Brown was mortally wounded and Stevens was shot and captured. On the 18th a platoon of marines under the command of Colonel Robert E Lee stormed the engine room with all the raiders being killed or captured. This copy of the orginal letter was made by John Brown’s granddaughter Edith Brown in 1888, it is accompanied by a typed transcript of the letter and four images of Aaron Dwight Stevens] 504 * 1861 Civil War manuscript document headed “General Orders” & “Head Quarters 49th Rgt/Tiffin Ohio” with details of military appointments and the consolidation of the chain of command, in fine condition. 502

He goes to lament the continuing unneccessary draft of “men at the north” when so many of the local negro population could be drafted to fight (stated in highly derogatory language), and the sickness of so many members of his regiment. Accompanied by a typed transcript of the letter. Fascinating insight into the psyche of a serving Union soldier and his attitude towards the African-Americans of the South for whose freedom he was fighting.
