The Spring 2018 ISGC Auction concluded successfully in mid May. 67% of the 72 lots were sold. The lots featured the first part of the James C. Andrews estate, made available to ISGC members by his son Robert Andrews. They featured Guatemala related publications, Waterlow Proofs, and the first installment of the excellent Papel Sellado collection. The auction also featured items from other ISGC members, including classic postal stationery, a beautiful 1886 Official New Year's Greeting Card (rare), and early mint blocks of the 1886 lithograph issue.
