    1930 Series of thirty-six stamp-size die proofs in black on glazed card for the 1931-40 'Arms' postal fiscal issue, affixed to two ledger pages (numbered '261' and '262') and headed 'NEW ZEALAND / STAMP DUTIES', each proof handstamped 'CANCELLED' in RED and numbered below, arranged in groups according to the different side-panel designs as follows:

    'DESIGN No. 1' commencing with an original undenominated master proof for the whole series with uncleared value tablets and side-panels, a master proof showing side-panels, 'SIXPENCE' at foot and uncleared value tablet at top, and four completed proofs for the 1s3d, 2s6d, 7s6d and 12s6d values;

    'DESIGN No. 2' comprising two master proofs showing side-panels, 'SHILLINGS' at foot and uncleared value tablet at top, and eleven completed proofs for the 4s, 5s, 6s, 7s, 8s, 9s, 10s, 15s, 25s, 30s and 35s values;

    'DESIGN No. 3' comprising master proof showing side-panels, 'TEN SHILLINGS' at foot and uncleared value tablet at top, and three completed proofs for the £2.10, £3.10 and £4.10 values;

    'DESIGN No. 5' comprising two master proofs showing side-panels and undenominated value tablets at top and foot (one with uncleared value tablets and the other with cleared value tablets, this last intended to allow the production of additional values via locally produced duty plates, as with SG 700, 825 and F212/6).

    Although the stamps were printed by the Govt Ptg Office, Wellington, the original dies and plates were produced by the Royal Mint.

    A unique and magnificent series of the utmost importance, never previously available to collectors.

    From the recently discovered proof book presented to Royal Mint engraver H.A.Richardson on his retirement (when the red 'CANCELLED' handstamp was applied).

    [The Postage Stamps of New Zealand vol 1, pp.514-5 refers to the Royal Mint engraving steel dies and making 32 electrotype plates. This probably relates to 28 denominated values, and four partly denominated ('AND SIXPENCE', 'SHILLINGS', 'TEN SHILLINGS' and 'POUNDS') values.

    N.B. It should be pointed out that the reverses of the two ledger pages remain intact, and comprise '260' with nine Irish 'income tax' die proofs and '263' with an important range of twelve NZ 1938 postal stationery die proofs, each with the same 'CANCELLED' handstamp.]

    Oliver Hardy Autographed Divorce Document

    £1,950.00

    • An original document signed by Oliver Hardy, one half of seminal double act Laurel & Hardy

    Oliver Hardy was an American comedian and actor, most famous for being one half of the popular comedy duo Laurel & Hardy. He's a central figure in the highly collectable Hollywood silent era. Any item from Oliver Hardy is coveted by collectors.

    Hardy has autographed this 28 page softbound copy of California Supreme Court Case #13874 in black ink on the top right hand corner of the front cover.

    The document, which features some light toning and handling wear, covers Hardy's ex-wife's follow-up suit for more alimony following their 1937 divorce. Within the document, Myrtle Lee Hardy claims that Oliver had fallen short on the yearly payments that had been agreed upon in the original divorce case.

    The judge concluded that Myrtle was not liable for any additional alimony. Just a few years later, Hardy fell in love with script girl Virginia Lucille Jones. They remained happily married until his death in 1956.

    An excellent document providing an insight into the private life of one of America's best loved comedians.

    Original carpet from Titanic movie

    £49.95

    • Original film prop: 1 inch x 1 inch piece of carpet from the Titanic movie

    The 1997 Hollywood Blockbuster Titanic, directed by James Cameron, is the 2nd highest grossing movie of all time, netting $2.2 billion at the box office.

    Making stars out of actors Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, the film went on to win a record 11 Oscars.

    Titanic memorabilia is proving to be popular with collectors:

    Winslet's famous red dress sold at auction in 2012 for $330,000, DiCaprio's jacket from the 'King of the World' scene sold for $60,000, and even director Cameron's hand drawn picture of a naked Winslet as 'Rose' auctioned for $17,000.

    For those of us with less deep pockets we're delighted to offer these original movie props - a 1 inch x 1 inch square of original carpet from the first class dining room featured in the Titanic movie.

    The carpet appears in the scene where Jack (DiCaprio) joins Rose (Winslet) and the other first class passengers for dinner.

    In his pursuit of authenticity Cameron insisted that the carpet was made by the Scottish carpet manufacturer Stoddard, the maker of the original carpet that sailed on the Titanic's maiden voyage in 1912.

    At just £49.95 (approx. $65) per square this makes for a wonderful piece of original movie memorabilia for a Titanic fan.

    (NB: The image shows the small collection of carpet we have acquired. We estimate there will be approx 50 squares available in total).

  • Charles Lindbergh Spirit St Louis
    • One of the largest pieces of original Spirit of St Louis fabric ever offered for sale
    • Signed by Charles Lindbergh
    • Provenance from the collection of James E. Morrow - a member of the welcoming committee that greeted Lindbergh after his historic flight
    • Click here to read more about it 

    Charles Augustus Lindbergh (1902-1974), nicknamed Slim, Lucky Lindy and The Lone Eagle, was a pioneering aviator who began his illustrious career in the skies as an US Air Mail pilot.

    At the age of just 25, he emerged from obscurity to capture the $25,000 Orteig Prize for his solo non-stop flight from New York to Paris on May 20-21, 1927.

    The event rocketed him to international fame, and there was "tremendous public hysteria" in America. He was awarded the nation's highest military decoration, the Medal of Honor, for his legendary flight.

    His fame meant that he was able to champion the development of commercial aviation and Air Mail services in the United States, making him one of the leading figures responsible for the progression of aviation technology at the time.

    Following his son, Charles Jr, being kidnapped and murdered in the "Crime of the Century" in 1932 - a result of Lindbergh's fame - his family moved overseas. They returned as America joined the second world war, with Lindbergh flying numerous combat missions in the Pacific Theatre.

    Following the second world war, Lindbergh styled himself as an explorer, inventor and prize-winning author, as well as an environmentalist - a truly remarkable man. 

    An extraordinary piece of aviation history.

    An original piece of fabric from the famed airplane The Spirit of St Louis - among the largest ever offered for sale. The fabric measures approximately 2" x 3" and is signed 'C. A. Lindbergh' in fountain pen by world famous aviator Charles Lindbergh.

    It is in fine, clean condition.

     

    The fabric is dated "Sept 6 - 1927" in a separate hand. This indicates that it was signed by Lindbergh while in Montana. That same day, he flew from Butte to Helena, returning on September 7 for several days rest as part of his US tour funded by Harry Guggenheim.

    The fabric would have been taken from the Spirit of St Louis during essential repairs carried out after landing.

    While small pieces of the Spirit of St Louis have appeared at auction, it is rare to find examples of this size. Items signed by Charles Lindbergh are even rarer, and are extremely sought after by aviation collectors, making this the undoubted highlight of your collection.

    Provenance

    The unusually large piece of cloth was acquired by James E. Morrow, a member of the welcoming committee for the triumphant American tour following Lindbergh’s historic flight.

    Morrow was a relative of Anne Spencer Morrow, who became Mrs. Charles Lindbergh in 1929. James E. Morrow was also the name of Anne’s paternal grandfather.

    Soon after Lindbergh’s return from France, millionaire aviation enthusiast Harry Guggenheim dipped into a promotional fund he had set up with his father, Daniel, to sponsor a nationwide tour for Lindbergh and the plane that he had made famous.

    Over a three-month period from July to October 1927, Lindbergh flew and touched down the Spirit of St. Louis in all forty-eight states, gave hundreds of speeches, and rode in countless parades, where he was greeted as a conquering hero by unprecedented adoring throngs.

    At the conclusion of the tour, Morrow presented the item to his daughter, Vera M. Morrow (1907–2004), who had earlier accompanied him to the legendary ticker-tape parade for Lindbergh in Manhattan on June 21, 1927.

    This exceptional piece of aviation history is available on our layaway plan with the option to spread payment over 12-18 months.

    Numerous entertainers performed, and continue to perform, at its resorts. Best known for his 1968 hit "Fire", the flamboyant singer Arthur Brown was hugely popular in the 1960s. "The Crazy World of Arthur Brown" was both the title of his 1968 album and that of his band. His appearance at Pontins was likely in support of this album. 

    The design is a classic piece of psychedelic poster art, created using bold primary colours.

    Outlaw Frank James handwritten letter

    • A touching handwritten love letter by one of the most legendary outlaws of the Old West, Frank James
    • Find out more about this item here 

    Frank James (1843 – 1915) was a U.S Civil War Confederate guerrilla and notorious Old West outlaw.

    Together with his younger brother Jesse James, he helped established the James-Younger Gang, which robbed banks, trains, and stagecoaches throughout the southern states.

    The gang cultivated a reputation as folk heroes, with help from the editor of the Kansas City Times, who published Jesse James' letters and proclaimed him to be a modern-day Robin Hood.

    The gang's spree of robberies and murder lasted from 1866 until 1876, when several members were killed or captured during a disastrous raid on the First National Bank of Northfield, Minnesota.

    Frank James retired from his life of crime soon after, but his brother Jesse struggled to adapt to normal life, and formed a new gang which continued to operate for several years.

    Following the murder of Jesse by fellow gang member Robert Ford in 1882, Frank James feared for his own life and surrendered to the authorities, stating:

    "I have been hunted for twenty-one years, have literally lived in the saddle, have never known a day of perfect peace. It was one long, anxious, inexorable, eternal vigil."

    He was tried for his roles in two robberies/murders in Missouri and Alabama, and was acquitted in both cases, before returning to Oklahoma to live with his family.

    For the next 30 years Frank James held a variety of jobs, including a shoe salesman, an AT&T telegraph operator and even a ticket taker in a burlesque theatre.

    He also gave public lectures on the Old West, invested in Buckskin Bill's Wild West Show, and gave tours of the James family farm, where he eventually passed away in 1915 at the age of 72.

    Frank James and Ann Ralston

    The story of how Frank James first met Ann Ralston remains somewhat of a mystery.

    She was the highly-educated daughter of a wealthy businessman, and was working as a teacher when she suddenly eloped with James in the summer of 1875.

    Her parents received a letter which read simply "Dear Mother: I am married and going West. Annie Reynolds", and were distraught at her disappearance.

    It wasn't until several months later that they discovered their new son-in-law was one of the country's most wanted men.

    In 1876 Ann's father arranged for a New York newspaper article about the marriage, to ensure his family was not linked to the criminal gang

    "The James brothers, who are, with the Younger boys, creating so much stir just now, have had a love scrape, or at least one of them has. But this love affair is different from all other love affairs. No one who knows anything of the career of the James brothers would expect them to woo, win and marry like other people...

    "Mr. Ralston has had no connection or communication with the train robbers whatever. His daughter he has not seen since she left home, a year and one month ago.

    "If she is alive she will not write home, lest her letters should guide the officers to her husband's retreat. If she was dead Frank James would have notified her parents. So they can only rest patiently in the uncertainty of perhaps seeing their daughter again."

    Ralston never returned home, but despite the dramatic nature of their courtship and Frank's life of crime, they maintained a happy and stable marriage.

    They had a son, Robert Franklin James, and following Frank's surrender and subsequent acquittal for murder in 1883, they remained together until his death in 1915.

    Ann Ralston James lived out the rest of her days on the James family farm, before passing away in 1944, and the couple's ashes were buried together at Hill Park Cemetery in Jackson County, Missouri.

    The letter

    The letter, dated July 7, 1883, was written by James to his wife whilst he was in jail in Gallatin, Missouri.

    James was awaiting trial for murder and robbery of the Rock Island Line train at Winston, Missouri, in which the train engineer William Westfall and a passenger Frank McMillan were killed.

    Having spent a year in custody, James' trial began on August 20, and lasted just three days, before the jury returned a resounding verdict of 'not guilty'.

    The tender love letter reveals James to be both highly romantic and highly literate.

    Although he lived much of his life as a violent outlaw, he had been raised as a preacher's son surrounded by books, and during his youth developed a love for the works of Shakespeare.

    James was said to always carry a book in his saddle bag, even when he was on the run from the law, and he shared this passion for literature with Ann throughout their 40-year marriage.

    Here's the text in full:

    My dear wife,

    Your dear letter of the 1st was handed to me not exceeding an hour ago. It arrived here on the third, at least it is as marked. Now I sent foreword .. in this manner. There are very few men in this world that care anything for their wives, that they naturally suppose that all men are alike.

    How badly they are deceived. If there is anything on this earth that is half as dear to me as my wife I have failed to find it. You are everything to me and the only living human being that has ever possessed my whole love, my entire confidence, the only one that ever will and I feel as that love and confidence will never be abused.

    I have lived as I think to see all my fondest hopes realised. Long years ago I hoped and prayed that god would give me a true woman for my wife and i feel as if he has done so and anyone who has had a chance for happiness in this belief is more fortunate than the possessor of a thousand worlds.

    I am trying to pass the time reading and writing - I regret that I am deprived of your beauty and I am writing to suffer that I have no visitors as told you in last.

    Enclosed I send you an editorial from the trenchant pen of Rob M Yast that I think a grand effort.

    I suppose you remember the circumstances of Jarvis shooting Englehart. Yast talks of love and forgiveness & Jarvis has shown that he possessed both - as also has Yast. He’s shown himself to be a true friend of me and mine.

    Yast seems a man of most liberal whims. I dare say nine out of every ten would say that they would not forgive Jarvis for what he has done. Yet if it is the means of reclaiming the human I don't think he will ever regret it.

    Regarding mamma, this may not be interesting to you but it has been to me. I had a letter from ma today, she feels disappointed as you did not visit...

    I supposed it was useless to ask you again so will end further requests. I also had one further service. she also sends her kindness in regards to you and asked why you did not write. Please write her and let her know I will write Monday again.

    When you write, write me care of Sherriff - I don’t think he will read them.

    He has not opened any of my letters for a long time and if he should that would be better than not to get them so long after they’re written. I will kiss you both good night - write often your loving Ben/ f**k it is raining hard at this time.

    James autographs the letter as 'Ben', a protective alias that he used when writing to his loved ones.

    The single page letter, with text on both sides, measures 203 by 126mm, with fold creases and bleeding of ink in some sections.

    A remarkable piece of history, which offers a personal insight into one of the Old West's most legendary figures.
