A British Commonwealth section includes a further selection of ‘G.R.I.’ errors and varieties. There are selections from the rest of the world, plus nearly 200 large lots and collections.

American highlights include a 1901 Pan-American Exposition 1901 4c deep red brown and black with an inverted centre (lot 80) and an example of a 1979 $1 Rush Lamp and Candle Holder with the intaglio brown colour inverted, otherwise known as the ‘CIA’ invert – one of the best-known inverted colour errors in United States philately (lot 136).

From the British Commonwealth, an air post rarity is one of the highlights. This is a very fine example of the 1919 Newfoundland Air Post stamp – the Caribou 3c brown that was overprinted ‘FIRST/TRANS-/ATLANTIC/AIR POST/April, 1919’ (lot 574).
