Spink will auction a series of Brazilian “Inclinados” stamps at its New York branch on December 6.
In 1843 Brazil became the second country to centralise its postal system
The undisputed highlight will be an extraordinarily rare 1844 30r black type II printed on “Bull’s Eye” paper, one of only two non-hinged specimens in existence.
Both are used, with this example bearing the Ceara handstamp.
It’s valued at $200,000-300,000.
The Inclinados were Brazil's second official postage stamps, after the Bull's Eye issues (1843). Brazil was the first country after the UK to issue stamps for use nationwide.
