Review of the Most Wanted January and February 2011 ebay

|

"Notable lots/items of January and February 2011"

I have finally managed to spare sometime to post this list due to St. Patrick's Day public holiday in Ireland. Although there are many interesting stuffs and items being listed in the past two months, these are essentially quite common and as such fetched relatively average prices. Some covers and postcards, as expected, reached good final prices. Even though in January there are other lots of MNH stamps that purpotedly reached hammer prices of $800 and $500 etc, these are essentially due to shill bidding and do not represent real legitimate transactions (detail here, seller has been kicked out off ebay!), as such these are not included in the list. Comments are always welcomed.

A nice cover franked with a complete set of the 1909-1923 North Borneo stamps from 1c. to 25c. (without the rare 18c. Banteng). Cancelled with Sandakan cds dated 30 Sep 1911. The date suggests that this might be Sandakan D12. A nice showpiece on cover!

A picture postcard showing the North Borneo natives carrying water in large bamboo compartments. This is probably the method of carrying water in those days at least prior to the production of this postcard in 1908. At the back, the postcard is franked with a single stamp of 12c. British Protectorate and tied with Sandakan cds (unclear).
