Preview of the Rapp Auction 2014

Our upcoming international Rapp Auction will be held in the week of the 24th to 28th November 2014. We are pleased to let you know, that we have already received a number of very beautiful and substantial consignments.


  • Swiss Classics, beginning with the first, 1843 issue with beautiful single frankings and multiples, also includes «Basle Dove» items, the «Double Geneva» issue and the stamps of the transition period. Also, a mint pair from the corner of the sheet of the so-called «Winterthur» issue, a world rarity from the T.-Champion collection, catches the eye.

  • Interesting «Orts-Post» and «Poste Locale» frankings are offered from the «Winkelried» Collection. The «Rayon I with framed cross» is impressive for its block of eight from the Burrus Collection and for a rare multiple franking. Among the Rayon II issues, several bisected items are on offer. The offering also focus on the various cancellations used on the Rayon issues (such as lozenges, dotted cancellation, cancels with figures or signs). The offer here centers on full covers with spectacular cancellations.

  • The specialized «Schönbrunn» collection of classical Austrian issues from 1850 to 1867 stands out. The complete collection covers 870 album pages, and yet includes only very few single stamps. Rather, it almost exclusively includes frankings, specialties and rare cancellations, almost exclusively on cover and on a few pieces. Quite a few of the top items were used to illustrate the handbook of Austria-specialist Dr. Ulrich Ferchenbauer. Only a few items were acquired through stamp auctions. This indicates that the majority of the offered items are fresh to the market, mostly unknown, and in select quality.
