Kangeroo stamp bounds to A$10,000 in rare philately sale

Status International of Sydney, Australia has now completed a grand 3976 lot auction catering for all types of collectors & dealers.

From bulk accumulations to intact collections to desirable single items, all types and levels of philatelic collectibles were on offer from $30 items up to genuine rarities, so there was something for everybody.

A number of lots hailed from the British Empire, (though the rest of the world was fairly represented) but it was really in Australia and its colonies that it came into its own.

The two most exciting lots were variations of an Aussie classic: the £2 Black & Rose Kangeroo. A few were available, but two stood out:

Firstly, a fine example of the Kangaroo with a broken tail variety went under the hammer. Very fresh and with nice bright colours, the piece sold for A$5,000 (US$4,450) - in the middle of its estimate range.

But the pick of the bunch was £2 Black & rose-crimson which is in simply superb condition, with rich colours and excellent centring and section of the stamp sheet undetached at the top.

Listed at A$8,000-10,000 (US$7,100-8,900) it hit the top of that range, selling for A$10,000 exactly.
