Queen Hot Item at New Zealand Auction

As The New Zealand Herald reported to StampNews.com, a stamp and coin auction running on Friday and Saturday, 11-12 of October, at the West Plaza Hotel in Wakefield St in Wellington, New Zealand, is expected to attract hundreds of bidders from both the global and domestic market.

The most prized lot, an excellent condition one penny full-faced Queen from New Zealand's first ever stamp issue, known as an SG1, is expected to fetch above its estimate of $10,000.

A collection of late 19th century stamps that featured advertising for the likes of Bonnington's Irish Moss and Pears Soap was also expected to attract a lot of attention.

In total about $2 million of stamps and coins will be up for sale.
