ONE HUNDREDTH NEGEV HOLYLAND SALE

ONE HUNDREDTH NEGEV HOLYLAND SALE
 
The One Hundredth NEGEV HOLYLAND SALE will be in the late summer or early fall of 2022. 
 
In the mid 1950’s Michael Bale of Ilfracombe England started dealing in Israeli stamps and postal history.  The earliest sale catalogue under the Michael H. Bale name on hand is #7 from November 1958.  Sale number 54 was dated October 1977.
 
In June 1978, the sales were rebranded as NEGEV HOLYLAND STAMPS.  The first sales were not numbered. Numbering stated with sale 05 in September 1980.  Sale number 50 was in April 1999.
 
In late 1999 Michael Bale sold the auctions and stock to Button Stamp Company, run by Sid Morginstin of Bordentown NJ, USA.   The Bale line of Israel and Palestine Catalogues were sold to another company.
 
The first sale under the new ownership was number 51 in April 2000.  Sale #99 is now available on NEGEV.STAMPCIRCUIT.COM.  The closing date is April 06, 2022.
 
There is little doubt that Negev Holyland is the oldest auction house devoted to Holyland Philately and Judaia.
 
 The 100th will be a very special sale.   Current plans (subject to change) are:
 
Mostly new material with few if any repeated lots.
The minimum start will be $50.
The catalogue will be mailed to all clients. [Currently, it is only mailed to those who request one.  Others are directed to the web site.]
If affordable, the entire catalogue will be in color.
There may even be a special low commission for vendors and buyers.
 
Please consider this as an opportunity to sell your better material.  Please e-mail Sid Morginstin at LEADSTAMP@VERIZON.NET or write to PO Box 8101 Trenton NJ with details of your holdings.
 
Michael Bale would like to record his Best Wishes to Sid Morginstin for carrying on the good reputation that Negev Holyland had built up over the years - Michael is now in his 90th year and is grateful for the friendliness and support given by his many customers over the years from the mid-1950s to his retirement in late 1999.  They were great times!

This auction features much INTERIM MATERIAL.   As we all know, there are many fakes and forgeries.   Much of it is sold AS IS.  Nevertheless, I will issue a refund if a competent authority known to me states that the item is not genuine.

My wife, Helene, and I have a trip to Italy and then Israel planned for May 2022.   [This was postponed form 2021 due to COVID.]  If you are in Israel and want to meet, please send an e-mail. In Italy we will be on a tour.
 
I wrote an update to my book THE POSTAL STATIONERY OF ISRAEL 2ND EDITION.    The SIP EDUCATIONAL FUND will soon issue the update.   Please look for an announcement in the Israel Philatelist.  If you want a PDF with the just changes, please send me an e-mail with STATIONERY UPDATE PDF in the subject line.  A hard copy will cost $15.

About Negev Holyland Auctions

 

I began collecting stamps at age 10.  Though I started with US stamps, I soon added Israel as my sister lived there.

My specialization is the Postal Stationery of Israel.   I also collect LUNDY ISLAND and FRANCE & COLONIES.

I started dealing in 1997.    I named the business BUTTON STAMP COMPANY.   Thomas Paine, the author of COMMON SENSE lived in Bordentown, NJ.  This was the only place where he bought property.   There is a statue of him in town.  On the base is this:  I would rather see my horse BUTTON grazing in the fields of Bordentown that all the pomp and show of Europe.   As I joke, you now know you are dealing with the southern end of north-bound horse. Read More...
