Current Auction

Dear friends and collectors,

This is our GOLD auction as it contains our 50th sale.
The results of our previous auction, held on 16 February 2021 during the
Covid-19 Era, were excellent. We hope that the current sale will also arouse a
great interest.

We offer a Rare Doar Ivri Plate Blocks selection but special heed should be
paid to the Turkish Post, Jewish Colonies, Palestine stamps, Israel 1st
 Postage Dues, Autographs
and Palestine Banknotes.

This auction can be viewed only at telavivstamps.com. You can browse all the
sections of the catalogue at your convenience.
Many more images are shown on the website, these could not be included in
the hard copy.

Please FAX or E-mail your final bids to avoid delays. Bidders are requested to
include their FAX or E-mail & telephone numbers on their bid sheets.
With all good and sincere wishes,
