"Most Interesting, Most Expensive March 2010"

This month, the top 4 listings are dominated by collection lots from nystamps. All of the listings from this seller is without any description, just pictures. Unfortunately because of the sheer numbers of listings every week, the accompanying pictures are deleted as soon as the transaction is done. This means we don't have any information as to what the lots consist of. Nevertheless, I included the top 10 most expensive items this month, just to make it more representative. So here goes:

Eye-catching six colour franking. Sent by registered mail and nicely cancelled by Jesselton, British North Borneo cds strikes. Sender was obviously involved or owned the Dayak village exhibit at the Coney Island fair in New York with its notorious pygmy tatooed warriors and so on. He used an American company envelope , to write to the Secretary of the Canadian National Exhibition, or CNE, in Toronto - an ongoing annual country fair -probably to attempt to interest the Canadian enterprise in buying another artificial Dayak village! Dated January 25, 1910 both with cancels and this interesting Jesselton registration handstamp. Routed via Singapore (two cancels one crossed-out in pencil perhaps because of a dating error?), and London.

A very interesting Japanese Occupation stamps of North Borneo. The big cover is franked with 15 North Borneo and Brunei stamps (with the overprinted Japanese inscriptions) and tied with neat cancellations. The cover is addressed to Kuching, Sarawak and on top of the address, inscribed "First Day Cover". The arrangement of the stamps around the address in a diamond-like shape is somewhat unorthodox and possibly a deliberate attempt to make the cover look better, although, I would probably prefer the traditional way of affixing stamps on a cover. Nevertheless, the cover is very rare indeed, and I'm sure £220 is definetely a good bargain!
