InterAsia Auctions, the market leader in Asian philately, to hold stamps sale
A journalist takes a picture of a Chinese stamp 1953 Military "Blue Navy" for sales which estimated to fetch HK$5.5-6.5 million (US$705,000- US$835,000) during an auction preview in Hong Kong Tuesday, Sept. 20, 2011. Surging demand from newly wealthy Chinese for art, wine and other collectibles has helped turn Hong Kong into the world's largest auction hub after New York and London. Interasia auctions director Jeffrey Schneider says the company's presales estimate for its four day stamp auction is HK$70 million (US$9 million), about triple the amount from when the company started three years ago.

HONG KONG.- InterAsia Auctions' upcoming sale will take place on September 23-26. As you will notice, the sale will now take place over 4 days - September 23-26-because of the sheer volume of lots, again at the Park Lane Hotel in Hong Kong. The over 3,500 lots are their largest offering ever and represent the most significant, as well as the most diverse and comprehensive auction they have had the privilege of offering.

The September sale includes:

People's Republic of China
The auction is organised a little differently from the past, with the People's Republic of China occupying the first day and a half of the sale. Its 1,300 lots, by far the largest offering ever of this immensely popular subject, are noteworthy both in terms of the great rarities, as well as the abundance and depth of popular sets and miniature sheets. The pristine marginal block of four of the 1968 unissued "Great Victory of the Cultural Revolution" 8f. and the 1953 Military "Blue Navy" $800 in both an extraordinarily rare pair and a single (ex Lin Song) in exquisite condition are true highlights.

Besides the great rarities, all the popular sets and miniature sheets are included - usually in abundance - complemented by blocks and large multiples, as well as first day covers. This presentation culminates with the Y.Y. Chen complete collection of the "C" and "S" series in mint blocks of four, including the Mei Lanfang imperforate set in magnificent corner blocks, offered as one lot.

China
The Ching Dynasty and the Republic-period China offering continues these two themes of both comprehensiveness and noteworthy rarities. The stamps and postal history of the Ching Dynasty and Republic of China will be offered from the Saturday afternoon through Monday and is highlighted by many of the great rarities, as well as some of the most select covers of each issue, sprinkled throughout, constituting spectacular and exotic usages, including unique franked postcards and rare post offices. For example, the almost 150 lots of the highly sought-after Red Revenues include the small figures surcharge 4c. on 3c. double surcharge and the large figures surcharge $5 on 3c. in a superlative unique used sheet margin pair. The Republic of China is highlighted by an unmounted mint 1941 Dr. Sun Yat-sen $2 inverted centre and the Sinkiang 1915 $1 transposed characters surcharge error in a se-tenant strip of three (ex Sir Percival David and Mizuhara Meiso).

Hong Kong and Treaty Ports
Preceding the main sale's Hong Kong is the "Nostalgia" collection of Hong Kong and China Printed Matter Mail, an original study presented to exhibition standard of these scarce usages, offered in a separate catalogue. The Hong Kong section in the main catalogue includes one of only eight recorded examples of the 1880 5c. on 8c. double surcharge, one of only two existing sets of proofs of the 1954 Queen Elizabeth II Definitives (with the other in the Queen's collection), and Nick Halewood's International Gold Medal Hong Kong Airmails exhibit is being offered intact.
