Welcome to my forty-sixth auction. The last auction had a surprisingly low number of bids, so I hope that this auction will tempt you more.

 

 

 

 

 

This auction starts with the second part of a large collection of agency postmarks. I have not shown the picture side of the postcards on the scans, so please ask if you would like to see those.

 

 

 

 

 

There are a number of fine airmail covers from the First Republic and later. There is another range of the popular Czech Army in Great Britain and a further large selection of the popular modern Czechoslovak postal stationery and Czech Republic booklets.

 

 

 

 

 

Take time to look at lot 30. I have not seen anything like this - perhaps you know better?
