Please be advised of the following corrections and changes to the auction catalog:
The low estimate is our starting bid.
Lot 25: the correct description is ‘Hong Kong QV 8c’, not 16c.
Lot 305 is withdrawn from sales. In the group of 9, the horizontal pair of 10½° perf 16c stamp had its overprint washed away by the forger and passed as original stamps. Thanks to advance in technology of scanning and printing, a counterfeit that could cheat the naked eye is caught in our catalog. We also thank the sharp-eye collector who reported this to us.
The images of the back of cover of lot 385 and lot 386 were transposed. The cover back next to the description of lot 385 in the printed catalog belongs to lot 386, and the cover back next to the description of lot 386 in the printed catalog, with 1 October date, belongs to lot 385.
Lot 502 is withdrawn from sales.
The images of lot 719a and lot 720 were transposed. The image above the description of lot 719a in the printed catalog belongs to lot 720, and the image above the description of lot 720 in the printed catalog belongs to lot 719a. It is now corrected in the website.
Lot 730: the estimate was erroneously listed as HK$500,000 in the printed catalog. The estimate in the website HK$65,000 is the correct version.
All of the above are now corrected in the website.
