"The Richard D. Miggins Collection of the Philippines" will be auctioned today by H.R. Harmer of the United States. This collection is described as representing
"one of the finest collections ever assembled of this country. From proofs and essays to mint stamps to postal history, the Miggins collection features something for anyone interested in the Philippines. Whereas most collections focus on one particular era of the nation’s history, Mr. Miggins acquired key material from the Spanish, Revolutionary, American, and Japanese periods. This sale offers a rare opportunity for collectors to acquire some of the true rarities in Filipino philately."
