The Hawkins Collection of Select European Countries
December 4, 2019

The Hawkins collection is a fine assembly of unused stamps from several pre-World War II European Countries, notably Albania, Austria, Luxembourg, Portugal, Spain and Switzerland. There are many rare and seldom offered classics, such as an unused 1851 2 Reales Isabella and 3 Cuartos Arms of Madrid from Spain, Zurich and Geneva 4Rp and 6Rp, as well as a Basel Dove and a complete selection of Sitting and Standing Helvetias. Most of the individual lots are accompanied by certificates, with excellent and comprehensive balances offered intact, with Greece, Germany, Bulgaria, Yugoslavia and others. A compact and powerful single owner sale, the Hawkins Collection will be sold on 4th December 2019 at 1:00 PM at our New York Galleries and via CherrystoneLive.
