RARITIES OF THE WORLD 1964 – PRESENT

Since 1964, the Siegel firm’s annual RARITIES OF THE WORLD™ sales have brought to auction the largest number of philatelic rarities ever handled by one firm. Thousands of items across a wide range of categories, along with descriptions and prices realized from every Rarities sale, may now be accessed from the Siegel website free of charge.

The images from sales prior to 1998 were scanned from color slides. Beginning in 1998, each item was scanned directly from the item. This the only digital archive of Siegel Rarities lots available anywhere. It is an unparalleled resource for all philatelists.

The Rarities archive may be searched on a sale by sale basis. Descriptions are the exact same as they appeared in the original catalogues.

As America’s premier stamp auctioneer since 1930, we believe we have an obligation to make our archives available to philatelists. As professionals, we understand how information helps bidders make informed judgments about quality, rarity and value, and we see the benefits in higher realizations for our consignors.
