Small, but useful, Balance of the “Goldfarm” Collection of “Kangaroo and Map” Postage Stamps. Neatly arranged in a stockbook containing 69 items, including singles, pairs and blocks from the -1/2p value through the 5sh, largely being low to middle values, we note some monogram and imprint singles, pairs and blocks, varieties such as double perforations, some items with unusual perfins, and concluding with a nice group of “SPECIMEN” overprints (ten in all, a couple of which have no gum), hinging ranges from some with h.r.'s to many being Mint N.H., Fine-Very Fine, the Brusden-White catalogue value is undoubtedly considerably higher than our modest estimate

E. 2,000-3,000

Kangaroo High Values with Telegraph Punctures. An especially comprehensive collection/accumulation of Kangaroo high values all with varying sized punch holes used to cancel the stamps on telegraph receipts, proper protocol for these receipts was to hold them for at least a year then burn them under supervision, nonetheless a number of these were saved by collectors from this fate and have become increasing popular to collect, this assemblage contains 66 singles, four pairs, one strip of three, a block of six (a very scarce block of the 10sh) and a block of eight (5sh value), there are no less than a dozen £2 values, ranging from the First Watermark issues to the “C of A” Watermarks, we even note a number of stamps have been noted with duty and vignette plate varieties, concludes with six low to mid-denomination stamps with handstamp telegraph cancels and no punch holes, condition a bit mixed as to be expected, but overall a Fine and valuable group perfect for continuation

E. 4,000-5,000

Kangaroo Issues Postal History Selection. A fascinating and desirable group of 49 covers all franked with a variety of Kangaroo issues, virtually all are commercial usages and most are not your “run-of-the-mill” common usages, values to 2sh denominations noted, there are scarce destinations, frankings uprating registered stamped envelopes, better markings and cancellations, censored usages, some in combination with later issues, one even addressed to the famous silent movie actor Charlie Chaplin, only a few are larger bank-sized envelopes, with most being the size perfect for exhibition page display, some with typical cover faults, but mostly Fine-Very Fine, a few of the better covers were acquired as individual lots in the 2010 sale of Kevin Nelson

E. 1,500-2,000
