The ‘BESANÇON’ Collection

FROM AUSTRALIAN STATES TO THE COMMONWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA 1850 – 1960

This marvellous collection – built over the last 40 years – will be auctioned by Corinphila in 2017-2019
The ‘BESANÇON’ collection retraces the history of Australia through adhesive postage stamps and their
use on mail from earliest settlements in the 19th century, the founding of the Commonwealth of Australia
and ending on the Centenary of Australian Postage Stamps.
In all probability one of the most complete and important collections of Australian States and Australia
1850-1960 ever assembled, outstanding also for its quality!
