Spink are proud to present the “Maurice Jacob” Collection of Saudi Arabia stamps and postal history. Please click on the link to be taken directly to the sale for which bidding is open now and will close on 13 May. The sale covers all aspects of Saudi Arabian philately, starting with the Egyptian and Ottoman Post Offices, the Hejaz, continuing with the Nejdi Occupation of the Hejaz, Hejaz and Nejd and finally the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The strength of the collection lies with the period of the Nejdi occupation of the Hejaz, one of the most significant periods in the history of Saudi Arabia. In this section will be found remarkable blocks of rare stamps, covers (which are largely unknown for this period), errors and varieties, such as two of the six known examples of the popular 1925 Capture of Medina Commemorative 1 piastre on 10 piastre imperforate between horizontal pair The undoubted star of the show is lot 83, a remarkable registered “front” which bears (amongst others) three examples of the astonishingly rare ”Matbua” 1/8 piastre chestnut along with one example of the even rarer ½ piastre scarlet and to cap it all two examples of the “Nejd Sultanate Post” 1/8piastre chestnut (one with handstamp inverted), the rarest of all Saudi Arabian stamps. This fabulous item is signed by the famous Egyptian stamp dealer Albert Aide and is also accompanied by a British Philatelic Association certificate of authenticity signed by Peter Holcombe, the famous expert on Saudi Arabian stamps. Each lot in the sale is fully illustrated.
